If you happened to be one of the unlucky users who experienced the YouTube TV outage on October 16th, then you should be eligible for a free week of credit courtesy of the company. YouTube TV sent all subscribers an apology via email this weekend which contained a link to a form that, so long as you fill it in by October 24th, will enable you to claim a free week of credit towards the TV streaming service.
While the service is undoubtedly becoming a major player in the online streaming space, having garnered 300,000 paying subscribers in less than a year by January 2018 alone, it hasn’t been without it’s downtime. This is the third such outage this year, the most recent occurring in July.
To claim the offer however, you’ll have to fill out the form soon, as the $10 credit for the service is only available until Wednesday, October 24 — 11:59 PM PT.
