A YouTube TV membership includes six accounts per household, each with its own unique recommendations and personal DVR.

The deal will allow Verizon wireless mobility customers to stream content via YouTube TV on the mobile network, wireless 5G home customers to add premium content from YouTube TV to their internet bundle on a national scale, and FiOS customers to choose from additional content and service options. Verizon will also offer what it says are unique, high-value YouTube TV promotions to customers across platforms.

“Our network and technology leadership uniquely position us to lead the content revolution, which centres around choice for our customers,” commented Erin McPherson, head of content strategy and acquisition, Verizon. “As we pave the path forward on 5G, we’ll continue to bring our customers options and access to premium content by teaming up with the best providers in the industry and leveraging our network as-a service strategy. We were first in the world to bring commercial 5G to our customers and now another first on the content front as we offer our customers access to YouTube TV on whatever platform they choose.”

"With this partnership, we're making it simple and seamless for Verizon's customers to sign up to enjoy YouTube TV on-the-go on their mobile phones or tablets or at home on their big screen devices.”
