YouTube TV’s popular family-sharing account feature is facing issues as many users cannot access it.
Some users have complained that the family-sharing accounts are not accessible to people even in the same household.
Multiple users took to Reddit to express their concerns. In reply to the Reddit posts, Team YouTube commented, “Just wanted to give an update — engineering is aware of this and is currently looking into how to fix it. In the meantime, there is a workaround. If you remove the family member and re-add them, then they should be able to log in again.”
Apart from this issue, some reports claim that YouTube TV is showing a pop-up asking the users to return to their home location or buy their own YouTube TV subscription.
Although the platform had the rule to only allow account sharing with users in the same household, it never strictly enforced it. There are chances the company might be looking into this issue like Netflix is.
