Save $20 on YouTube TV with Its New Referral Program

Alright, it’s time to sell YouTube TV subscriptions to your friends and family members! YouTube TV just opened a referral program that nets you a $20 credit every time you get someone to sign up. And to make your sales endeavors easier, everyone who joins YouTube TV through your referral link saves $10 on their first month.

To generate your referral link, tap your profile photo in the YouTube TV app and navigate to “Referral.” Or, if you’re in a rush, just visit tv.youtube.com/referafriend. After a friend signs up and pays for their first month of YouTube TV, you’ll get a $20 discount on your upcoming bill.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of rules to this referral program:

  • Eligibility: Discounts only work if you’re subscribed to the YouTube TV Base plan (as opposed to individual channels). You won’t get a discount if the person you refer has already used YouTube TV or redeemed a free trial. Additionally, the person you refer needs to join the YouTube TV Base plan.
  • Number of Referrals Available: You can successfully refer 10 people for a total of $200 in discount credits. It’s unclear whether these credits stack or if they’re applied to your account month-by-month.
  • Combine with Coupons: New users cannot combine a referral discount with a coupon.

Google says these rules are subject to change at any time. If you have friends or family who are interested in YouTube TV, I suggest referring them as soon as you can. Just bear in mind that you can already share your YouTube TV membership with 4 other family members for no cost.

While a one-month discount on YouTube TV isn’t the best deal in the world, it’s better than nothing. YouTube TV is more expensive than ever, to the point that its price eclipses some cable and internet packages.
