You also need to keep in mind that the options only apply if you signed up for the subscription service through YouTube TV itself—not a third-party merchant.

What You Should Note About YouTube TV Refund Policy

YouTube TV doesn’t have long and complicated refund rules, yet one detail is crucial to keep in mind. The refund policy states you are eligible for a YouTube TV refund when the service you paid for is in any way faulty, inaccessible, or not as it was initially described.

This means that while you can pause or cancel your membership any time without cancellation charges, you cannot get a refund because you do not like the service.

You also won’t be granted prorated refunds if you cancel YouTube TV before the billing period elapses.

Free Trials and How to Avoid Their Automated Charges

Signing up for a YouTube TV free trial might be the only reason why you’re now requesting a refund—YouTube charged you automatically before you got the chance to cancel the service.

With DoNotPay, you can prevent this and never again let an automated charge creep its way onto your credit card statement. Use our virtual credit card instead of your own the next time you sign up for a free trial. The card works just like any other during the registration process but will make it impossible for membership charges to be incurred since there are no funds on it.

Should You Watch Out for Any Issues When Requesting a YouTube TV Refund?

Unfortunately, the company is known to charge users even after they cancel their free trial by failing to process the termination. Also, YouTube has been reported to end the users’ free trial period before its due date and surprise them with a charge that way.

Both of these scenarios violate core customer rights.

The Fair Credit Billing Act (FCBA) was passed to guard you against shady billing practices. Under the Act, you have the full right to dispute a charge on your credit card within 60 days of it being imposed.

If you think you have valid grounds to report YouTube TV or any other company, DoNotPay will help you send demand letters to them in small claims court. We’ll obtain the evidence you need and draft your initial paperwork, so you don’t have to face litigation on your own.
