YouTube TV offers subscribers a variety of premium networks and add-ons that can be bundled with the base plan to help increase the number of channels they have access to. As these are premium add-ons, they do require an additional monthly subscription, and the price varies depending on the network.

Knowing which premium channels are available through YouTube TV before signing up can help to make the decision on whether this is the right live TV streaming service. Not to mention, provide some insight ahead of time on exactly how much a custom package will ultimately cost.

While some of these premium networks and add-ons can be subscribed to without the base plan, many do require access to the base package. At present, the YouTube TV base plan costs $72.99 a month.

Generally speaking, there isn’t any financial benefit to subscribing to premium networks through YouTube TV as they do tend to cost the same as subscribing directly. However, having multiple subscriptions accessible and managed through the one app and service is often more convenient.

Adding premium networks to YouTube TV’s base plan

Adding any of the premium networks or add-ons to an existing base plan can either be done through the YouTube TV app (on most devices) or through the YouTube TV website.

Purchase add-on networks through TV app:

  1. Open the YouTube TV app
  2. Navigate to the Store tab
  3. Select a network
  4. Select Add network
  5. Confirm the purchase

Purchase add-on networks through website:

  1. Visit tv.youtube.com
  2. Click on profile photo
  3. Click on Settings
  4. Click on Membership
  5. Click the checkmark next to a network/add-on
  6. Click Purchase

If signing up to YouTube TV as a new subscriber, premium networks and add-ons can be bundled during the sign-up process. The list of add-ons can be found on the Add to your plan page before checkout and can be added by clicking the checkmark next to a network/add-on before clicking on Next: Checkout.

Try a premium network before you buy

Almost all of the premium networks and add-ons listed above come with a free trial. This can be a great way for new and existing subscribers to see if the additional subscription is right before having to pay the additional monthly cost.

While most come with a free trial, not all of them do. In addition, the length of the free trial can vary between channels. Due to this, and similar to how the standard YouTube TV free trial works, subscribers will need to be aware of how long the free trial is and actively cancel the add-on before the free period ends, if they want to avoid paying the additional subscription cost each month.

YouTube TV does list if a free trial is available, and how long it lasts, before adding the premium network or add-on to the base plan, so it is possible to confirm this information before signing up.
