YouTube TV subscribers can gift two week free trials to friends

Subscribers of YouTube TV services can gift special two week free trials to their friends and families for a limited time period.
YouTube has sent out emails to customers of its YouTube TV service. In the e-mails are codes that subscribers can send to their friends and families to redeem a special two week free trial of the service. Usually, new users to YouTube TV only get a five day free trial of the service, so if you know any YouTube TV subscribers now would be a good time to nag them to send on the code.

"So, we're giving you a special two week extended free trial code to share with friends and family who might like to try YouTube TV for the first time," the e-mail reads.

"After all, whether they're entertainment lovers or sports fans, with 70+ channels and unlimited DVR space, there's something for pretty much everyone, right?"

YouTube sets no specific limit on the number of times a code can be redeemed but reserves the right to impose its own cap. Presumably this would happen if a subscriber decides to post the code somewhere publicly for anyone to redeem. There is also a time limit on this offer.



Codes must be redeemed by October 16, 2019.

Hi Neil,

YouTube didn't say in the e-mail but they did reserve the right to cap any particular code. So basically it seems like they will only cap those where they suspect somebody has misused it. For example, posting a code publicly.

If I see otherwise I'll edit.
