It is currently possible to sign up to YouTube TV and just pay $49.99 per month for the first three months, thanks to the use of a new promo code. $150 for three months of live TV represents a good deal, and especially considering the promotion doesn’t interfere with the free trial.


For some time now, YouTube TV has been running a $55 per month for the first three months promotion, which is the equivalent to $10 off the usual cost. However, this latest option reduces the cost by additional $5 each month for a total additional saving of $15 over the course of the first three months.

To take advantage of the offer, simply sign up for the base live TV plan as normal, either in the app or via the YouTube TV website, and use the FIRSTDOWN promo code. We have confirmed that the code works and reduces the cost down to $49.99 per month for the first three months.


In addition, new subscribers are still able to take advantage of a free trial when using the promo code. The exact length of the free trial tends to vary with YouTube TV, depending on when signing up, but five days were on offer we tested the promo code.

For reference, the coupon code appears to have gone live on January 13th and we expect it to remain available through February 12th. In other words, through Superbowl Sunday.

As is always the case with these promo codes, the subscription will automatically be billed at the usual, higher rate of $64.99 per month after the three months. The only way to avoid automatically paying the higher monthly cost is to manually cancel the live TV plan before the end of the discounted period.

John's preferred live TV streaming service right now is YouTube TV although he does tend to switch live TV services multiple times each year to keep up to date with their changes. Outside of live TV, John also actively streams HBO Max (for the shows), Peacock (for Premier League), and Paramount Plus (for Champion's League). However, John is also currently subscribed to Apple TV+, Discovery+, Hulu, Starz, Showtime, and Shudder.
