When YouTube TV first launched, many praised it as being one of the best values in the world of live TV streaming subscriptions. Now, whether you no longer use the service or are tired of price increases, here’s how to cancel (or pause) your YouTube TV membership.
Update, 12/20/21: Shortly after YouTube TV lost access to Disney-owned channels on December 17, 2021, Google and Disney reached a deal to bring back the missing channels on December 19, 2021.

With the YouTube TV app open, tap on your avatar in the top-right corner of the interface.
From the menu, select the “Settings” option.
Tap the “Membership” option.
Select the “Manage” button found next to the Base Plan listing.
If you’re having second thoughts about ending your subscription, you can choose to pause your membership for a set number of weeks. If not, tap the “Cancel” link to proceed.
Choose one of the preset reasons to share why you’re canceling your YouTube TV subscription.
If you choose the “Other” option, you will be asked to write out an in-depth reason.
The streaming service will once again offer to pause your membership. Select the “Continue Canceling” button to advance.
You will be presented with the final cancellation screen. YouTube TV will list out everything you will miss out on if you unsubscribe from the service. Tap the “Yes, Cancel” button one last time to terminate your monthly subscription.
