I have four Play:1 speakers and a Playbar.
If I added a Sonos:One speaker, can I:
I watched BCS from the beginning. I am currently one episode behind (no spoilers, please).
I'm really struggling with the Gus/Mike/Salamanca plot line. Can anyone break it down for me?
Nacho (IIRC) hired Mike to kill the Salamanca boss (because he wanted to use Nacho's Dad's place as a cover?) but Mike backed out. Then Nacho killed the Salamanca boss with the drug (IIRC). Was this just to get them to leave his Dad alone? How did Gus get involved...and what is motivating Gus? Does he want more "territory" and does he think that if the Salamancas are gone he will get it?
Anyhow, somehow I'm confused on the whole plotline. Can anyone help?
Billing Related Issues
Can I use Google Play credit or gift cards to pay for Youtube TV?
Yes. From a browser, go to the settings page on Youtube TV and choose "billing." This will take you to your Google payments center page. Go to subscriptions and services, select Youtube TV, and then you can designate your Google play balance as your primary payment method.
What is the deal with Family Groups?
This is what YTTV says about Family Groups:
If you've purchased a YouTube TV membership, you can create a family group to share your membership with up to 5 people at no additional cost. When you create a family group, you become the family manager.
As the family manager, you can invite family members (13 or older) to join your family group.
As a family group member, you can build your own personal library of content in YouTube TV. Your viewing preferences and DVR are all your own—we won't share your library or watch history with your family group.
Sharing YouTube TV as part of a family group also lets you share other Google services with the same people. Learn more about family groups on Google.
YouTube TV defines a Family Group requirements thusly:

Can I use a G Suite account with YTTV?
If you are using a G Suite account, you cannot be a member of a Family Group or create a Family Group.
Can I pause my membership, instead of cancelling it?
Yes. Just go to the Membership Settings page to do so. Your DVR'd content will not be erased, but no new content will be recorded.
How To Use YTTV
How do I only record new episodes?
This isn't currently possible, but new episodes will be highlighted in the library under the "New Episodes" heading. These usually stick around until the next episode airs and then it gets bumped off by the latest episode.
How does the DVR work?
DVR recordings will remain in your account for 9 months from the last time that episode aired. So, for example, if on January 1 "Example Episode" was recorded and then "Example Episode" aired again on March 1, you will have access to the recording for 9 months from March 1.
Sometimes recorded episodes are replaced with Video On Demand (VOD) alternatives. Sometimes you can choose to watch the VOD version or the recorded version. Sometimes you can only watch the VOD version. This is dictated by the networks, not by YTTV.
If there is an episode that is replaced by VOD and you can only watch the VOD version (not the recorded version) and later the VOD version is removed, your recorded version will then be accessible.
So, what is recorded then?
If you add a show to your library, it will record every episode of that show on any channel that airs that show. So, if the show airs new episodes on ABC and reruns on TBS, it will record every episode that airs on ABC and TBS.
Can I delete recordings like on my cable provider's DVR?
Not currently. Unlimited recordings are kept in the cloud for 9 months. You can narrow down by looking at "New Episodes" or "Shows"
How do I rearrange the guide/mark a channel as a favorite?
To rearrange the channels in the guide you need to use one of YTTV's mobile apps or the YTTV website.
Next, go to the sort button on the live tab and change "default" to "custom." You can then edit your custom guide however you'd like.
Why is my streaming limited to 480p?
Due to various Digital Rights Management (DRM) technologies, your computer monitor may not be able to display YTTV in HD. This is rare and usually can be fixed. A Google search may help you figure out what needs to be done.
What streaming device should I use to watch YTTV?
You can watch YTTV on Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast, Shield TV, iPad, iPhone, Android phone/tablets, Xbox One, and on the web. Some smart TVs can also natively stream YTTV.
YTTV basically works the same on Roku, Apple TV, Shield TV, Xbox One, and smart TVs. There may be some small navigation differences and some performance differences from device to device.
You cannot use YTTV on Fire devices.
Can you recommend a streaming device?
This is a personal preference thing, really. Any of the current Roku devices are great and relatively inexpensive. Apple TV is great, especially if you're in the Apple ecosystem. Chromecast is fine if you want to use your phone instead of a remote control. The Shield TV is a powerful device that can also play many games.
How do I send the YTTV team feedback?
You can send the YTTV team feedback by using the online form.
Can I use TV Anywhere apps with YTTV?
Yes. More info is here.
Are there any viewing restrictions? Like, can I watch everything on mobile?
For the most part, there aren't many restrictions on where you can watch and on what you can watch. There are some rare restrictions though, mainly regarding sports. Here is some in-depth information on it.
