How to Share YouTube TV

Google lets you share your YouTube TV account with up to five other family members who have Google accounts. Any users you share your YouTube TV account with will be added to your family account, and will be able to access YouTube TV without having to sign up for a new account. It only takes a few minutes to send out invitations, and as soon as your invitation is accepted that person will have access to YouTube TV.
