Until August 14, you can try YouTube TV for two weeks for free instead of the single free week that is usually offered. The offer is available to anyone in the US who has not sampled the streaming service before.
The temporary deal, first noticed by Droid Life, may be an attempt to lighten the pill after YouTube has raised the price of a YouTube TV subscription to $ 49.99 per month, to the annoyance of cable cutters.

The price increase took place in April this year, when YouTube added nine Discovery channels to its offer: Discovery Channel, HGTV, Food Network, TLC, Investigation Discovery, Animal Planet, Travel Channel and MotorTrend. These extra channels brought the total available on YouTube TV to more than 70.

The extra choice was perhaps a welcome surprise, but the price increase was a serious incentive for existing customers. Everyone who signed up before March 2018 paid $ 34.99 per month and those who registered afterwards paid $ 39.99, but all members were put on the new pricing plan after the May billing cycle.
While it is much better for business to hold on to existing users, if YouTube has seen subscribers wander to rival services, the favorite viewer for new viewers could be an attempt to restore ratings. As The Verge notes, special offers are also available for Verizon customers, but again, these are only available to users who are in use for the first time. Everyone he has been watching for a while is left out in the cold.
