Service Update from YouTube TV

To Our Members

October 2, 2021

We’re thrilled to share that we’ve reached a deal with NBCUniversal to continue carrying the full NBCUniversal portfolio of channels, including their Regional Sports Networks and your local NBC station. That means you won’t lose access to any of their channels, and YouTube TV will continue to offer 85+ networks for $64.99/month. If you have a promotional price or a free trial with YouTube TV, this will also remain unchanged.

We appreciate NBCUniversal’s willingness to work toward an agreement, and we also appreciate your patience as we negotiated with them on your behalf. Thanks again for being a YouTube TV member.

We don’t have an update on the negotiations with NBC, but as of now there is no change to your available networks. As soon as we have any updates, we'll let you know.


September 28, 2021

We know that you love watching the wide variety of live sports, news, and shows available to you on YouTube TV. That's why we've been working so hard to renew our deal with NBCUniversal to continue carrying their content on YouTube TV.

However, since our agreement expires on Thursday, September 30, and we haven't yet been able to reach an equitable agreement, we wanted to give you an early heads up so you understand your choices.

Our ask is that NBCU treats YouTube TV like any other distributor. In other words, for the duration of our agreement, YouTube TV seeks the same rates that services of similar size get from NBCU so we can continue offering YouTube TV to members at a competitive and fair price.

If NBCU offers us the equitable terms we are asking for, we’ll renew our agreement with them. However, if we are unable to reach a deal by Thursday, the NBCU lineup of channels will no longer be available on YouTube TV and we will decrease our monthly price from $64.99 to $54.99 (while this content remains off our platform).

At that time, you could consider signing up for NBCUniversal’s own streaming service, Peacock Premium, which NBC currently offers starting at $4.99/month to continue watching NBCU content, such as live football.

While we would love every member to continue to stay with our service, we understand that you may still choose to pause or cancel your membership. We want to make YouTube TV flexible, so members can pause or cancel anytime. We will give you updates as negotiations continue, and going forward, please continue to check this webpage for additional updates.

Please know that NBCU is an important partner for us and as you can imagine, this is not the outcome that we want. We’re still in active conversations with NBCU and are hopeful we can keep their content available on YouTube TV.

FAQs

When does the distribution deal with NBCUniversal expire?

September 30, 2021

Are you changing my price?

If we are unable to reach a deal by September 30, the NBCU lineup of channels will no longer be available on YouTube TV, and we will decrease our monthly price for members from $64.99 to $54.99 (while this content remains off our platform). This adjusted price applies to all eligible Base Plan members billed during the period when NBCUniversal content is not available on YouTube TV.

How else can I access NBCUniversal content?

If you’d like to continue to watch NBCU content, you could consider signing up for NBCUniversal’s own streaming service, Peacock Premium, which NBC currently offers starting at $4.99/month to continue watching NBCU content, such as live football. YouTube TV is not endorsing or affiliated with Peacock, which is subject to its own terms and conditions. You can also watch your local NBC Station’s news and other local content on the station’s website and mobile app.
