YouTube TV must be feeling a crunch from its recent price increase that raised the streaming TV service’s monthly subscription to $50. For “a limited time only,” YouTube TV is offering a two-week free trial instead of the usual one-week duration. Droid Life spotted the longer-than-usual free trial. Sadly (but predictably), this is only for new customers and won’t do you much good if you’ve already tried and canceled YouTube TV.
The fine print reveals that this promo will run from today until August 14th. There are a number of other YouTube TV trial “deals” happening — particularly if you’re a Verizon Wireless or home internet customer. But again, anyone who has already used up their YouTube TV free trial can’t redeem any of these. The service is tied to your Google account, so I’m not sure it’d be worth the trouble of setting up a new email for another free run.
