YouTube TV subscribers can log into a variety of network apps and websites using their live TV subscription credentials. These TV Everywhere apps and sites provide YouTube TV subscribers with another way to watch live channels and on-demand content. Here is a complete list of every TV Everywhere app and website you can access with a YouTube TV subscription.

The use of TV Everywhere apps and sites is free for YouTube TV subscribers, making it a feature worth taking advantage of. This guide includes a brief explanation on what TV Everywhere is and how it works. Those familiar with the feature and the process can jump straight to the list of YouTube TV Everywhere apps.

How TV Everywhere works

In a similar way to how subscribers can log into the YouTube TV website and watch any of the live TV channels available with a subscription, they can also directly access many of the same channels and on-demand content directly through a channel’s own app and website.

While many streaming services do support TV Everywhere, the number of third-party network apps and sites a user can access varies wildly between live TV services. The good news for YouTube TV subscribers is this is one of the better TV Everywhere supported options, with an impressive amount of apps and sites available to access for free.

Benefits of using TV Everywhere

There are many reasons as to why a YouTube TV subscriber might want to use a TV Everywhere app. However, one of the best reasons is dedicated access to your favorite networks and channels. If you tend to watch more AMC than Discovery or more Disney Channel than Food Network then you can save having to navigate the entire YouTube TV interface and just access directly through the network’s dedicated app or website.

Other common reasons to use TV Everywhere include:

  • Access to more content than available through YouTube TV
  • Access via a device not currently supported by YouTube TV
  • Bypass YouTube TV’s simultaneous streams limit

How to access network app and sites with YouTube TV

The process is very similar to how it works with cable logins and third-party network apps, with the main difference being the use of a live TV streaming subscription instead of a typical cable package. While the exact process might be slightly different depending on the app, the overall instructions are the same. Below is an example of how to log into the ESPN website and app using YouTube TV

Log into ESPN website with YouTube TV subscription:

  • Go to the ESPN Watch website
  • Hover over the profile icon in the top-right corner
  • Tap on “TV Provider”
  • Scroll down the list or use the search box to find YouTube TV
  • Select YouTube TV

Log into ESPN app with YouTube TV subscription:

  • Open the ESPN app on your phone
  • Tap on the settings icon in the top-right corner
  • Tap on “Manage TV Provider”
  • Scroll down the list or use the search box to find YouTube TV
  • Tap on YouTube TV

Regardless of whether accessing through the network website or app, after selecting YouTube TV, you will be redirected to a Google sign-in page. At which point you will need to log in using the Google account associated with the YouTube TV subscription. Google will then provide a warning indicating that a third-party service – in this case, ESPN – wants to access information about your YouTube TV subscription. If you agree, Google will authenticate the YouTube TV credentials and redirect back to ESPN.

This is usually a one-time process so once authenticated, and as long as the app remains installed on the device, each time the subscriber opens the app again, they’ll be able to access the content without having to go through the same process again.

YouTube TV caveats to be aware of

Above is the complete list of every network app or site that can be accessed with a YouTube TV subscription. As this is a complete list, it might include channels that are not currently included with your package – for example, HBO Max or Showtime. While these are listed above, unless your subscription includes these premium networks, then you won’t be able to access the network app or site using your YouTube TV credentials.

Another point to note is that sometimes there are additional restrictions in place that might limit certain aspects of the TV Everywhere support. Again, take HBO Max as an example. While YouTube TV allows a single account to be shared with up to five other family members, only the account holder’s sign in credentials can be used to access the HBO Max app or website.

The bottom line

YouTube TV subscribers can access a wide number of network apps and sites using just their live TV credentials. Among other things, this can be a way to increase the amount of content you have access to. Using network apps and sites is completely free for YouTube TV subscribers.
