Beginning this week, YouTube TV is offering subscribers extended free trials on several of its premium add-on subscriptions, including Showtime and Acorn TV, the home of British programming for US viewers.
YouTube TV shared the news on Twitter.
There's no time like the present to dive into new content! Some of our add-ons are now available for a one-month free trial.
Never taken these channels for a spin? What are you waiting for? ⬇️@Showtime@AcornTV@CuriosityStream@Sundance_Now@WatchUMC@Shudder

You have until May 6 to sign up for a 30 day free trial of the following premium add-ons:
- Acorn TV
- Curiosity Stream
- Sundance Now
To add networks to your subscription, go to the YouTube TV website. Click on your profile picture, click Settings, then Membership. Click on the checkmark next to the networks you’d like to add, then click Agree to finish. Do the same when you want to remove a network from your subscription.
It looks like these trials are for new signups only, so those who have already signed up for a free trial or subscription to the add-ons through their YouTube TV account won’t be eligible for the extended trial.
While YouTube TV offered EPIX as a free preview for all subscribers, these free trials require a sign up. If you don’t cancel before the end of the 30 day free trial, you’ll be charged for the following month.
