How to Cancel YouTube TV on Your Mac or PC

  1. To cancel YouTube TV, go to tv.youtube.com, and choose the Settings option from your profile in the top left.
  2. In Settings, make sure “Membership” is selected and then choose “Deactivate Membership”. When asked to confirm, choose “Cancel Membership”. Alternatively, you can pause your account.

Once you cancel your YouTube TV subscription, we’ve put together a list of alternative with the different channels, features, simultaneous streams, and DVR.

Alternatives to YouTube TV

1. Hulu + Live TV ($55)

For $5 more than YouTube TV, you’ll get 26 of the 35 Top Cable Channels, including your local Fox RSN (or YES Network and Marquee Sports Network). The service carries a similar number of ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX affiliates as YouTube TV, so you’re just as likely to get them in your area.

In comparison to YouTube TV, you’ll lose AMC und WE tv, but you’ll gain A&E, History und Lifetime.

If you’re a College Sports fan, you’ll also get ACC Network, Big Ten Network, SEC Network, ESPNU, and CBS Sports Network.

Cloud DVR

Includes 50 Hour DVR, can upgrade to 200 hour DVR for $9.99 a month.

Max Streams

Includes up to 2 Simultaneous Streams, but can upgrade to Unlimited Screens in your home for $9.99 a month.

2. fuboTV ($55)

Earlier this year, fuboTV added Viacom and Discovery channels giving it more Top Cable Channels than any other Live TV Streaming Service. With the new additions, the service now has 29 of the 35 Top Cable Channels — four more than YouTube TV.

While you’ll lose ABC, Disney Channel, Disney Junior, ESPN, Freeform, FX und FXX, you’ll gain A&E, BET, Comedy Central, Hallmark, History, Lifetime, MTV, Nickelodeon, Paramount Network und VH1.

In terms of sports, they are one of the only alternatives that carry NFL Network and NFL RedZone as part of their service.

While they also don’t carry Fox Sports RSNs, for those in New York, Boston, and Houston, they are one of the only streaming services that offer MSG/MSG+, AT&T SportsNet Southwest, and NESN. They also have NBC Sports RSNs, including SNY.

They offer a $5 upgrade to their Family Plan, which includes 500 Hour DVR and Third Simultaneous Stream.

Cloud DVR

The service includes a 30 Hour DVR, which can be upgraded to 500 Hours, plus a third stream for $5.

Max Streams

The service includes 2 Simultaneous Streams, but you can add a Third Stream, along with a 500 Hour DVR for $5.

3. AT&T TV NOW

If you want Fox Sports RSNs, your only other option is to subscribe to AT&T TV NOW. At $85 a month however, it doesn’t make sense to subscribe to the service just to watch your local team. You will get a better channel line-up if you subscribe to Hulu Live TV.

In comparison to YouTube TV, you’ll gain BET, Comedy Central, Hallmark, MTV, Nickelodeon, Paramount Network und VH1, but you’ll lose AMC, Discovery, Food Network, HGTV, Investigation Discovery, TLC, Travel Channel und WE tv.

If you’re a College Sports fan, you’ll also get ACC Network, ACC Network Extra, Big Ten Network, CBS Sports Network, ESPNU und SEC Network. But, in order to get your local RSN, you will need to splurge for their $85 Max Plan — which at that point, you mind as well choose another Live TV Streaming Service or switch back to cable.

Cloud DVR

Includes 500 Hour DVR.

Max Streams

Includes up to 3 Simultaneous Streams.

4. Philo ($20)

If you’re willing to sacrifice local and live sports, Philo is a great budget option that will give you 18 of the Top Cable channels from your YouTube TV plan. You’ll get channels from AMC, A+E, Viacom (MTV, VH1, etc), and Discovery/Scripps (Discovery, Food Network, HGTV).

In comparison to YouTube TV, you’ll lose Bravo, Cartoon Network, CNN, Disney Channel, Disney Junior, E!, ESPN, Fox News, Freeform, FX, FXX, MSNBC, Syfy, TBS, TNT, truTV und USA Network, but you’ll gain A&E, BET, Comedy Central, Hallmark, History, Lifetime, MTV, Nickelodeon, Paramount Network und VH1.

Besides the cost savings, you’ll also get an Unlimited DVR and three simultaneous streams.

Cloud DVR

Includes Unlimited DVR.

Max Streams

Includes 3 Simultaneous Streams.

5. Sling Orange + Blue ($45)

For $45 (and just $35 for your first month) you’ll get 25 of the 35 Top Cable Channels.

You’ll get channels from AMC, Disney (ESPN, Disney), Discovery/Scripps (Discovery, Food Network, HGTV), FX, NBCU (Bravo), and Turner (TNT, TBS, CNN).

In comparison to YTV, you’ll lose Disney Junior, FXX und WE tv, you’ll gain A&E, BET, Comedy Central, History, Lifetime und Paramount Network.

Besides fuboTV, they are the only service that offers NFL Network and NFL RedZone, and are now the only service to get NHL Network.

One unique feature with Sling is that you can add additional channels through Extra packs like Kids, Comedy, News, and Lifestyle. For $5 each, or $10 for all four — you can add channels like MTV, VH1, E!, Disney Junior, and MSNBC.

They also have a Total TV Deal which includes all 7 Extra Packs and a 50 Hour DVR for $25.

Sling only carries NBC & FOX, it’s only in select markets, but you can either supplement with an antenna or a free service like Locast. They also are in a contract dispute with Fox Sports meaning that they only have limited Regional Sports Networks.
