Streaming YouTube TV

We have a subscription for UTube TV and it has worked great for us at home. We just arrived in AZ for a few months and thought we'd be able to stream UTube TV to our phones. We have an AT&T Elite plan with unlimited data.
I've tried it on my phone using the UTube TV app and it just keeps wanting to sign me up for a new plan.
Everything I read on the UTube TV site says it should work for up to 90 days away from home, so it's got to be something I'm missing....
But what???

When you log in it will first ask if you are traveling. Answer yes and you will be fine for 90 days. Every time you move it will ask again if you are traveling and you just answer yes.
Did you see that question and answer no? This video may help you out of the situation because Google is telling YouTube you are not home anymore.

I had found a fix but the url I posted led to the wrong place. Search for Youtube
TV not working out of area and there is a video on how to fix your location
You need to start the service from your home location. I assume you used youtube TV at home first.
Good luck!

If it wants you to get a plan, you are probably signing into the wrong account.

This may be it! Now that you say that I think our UTube TV account is under my wife's name and thus I'm sure her Google account. I'll see if I can get it working using her phone.
Will I be able to add her Google account to my phone if that use the case? That could get confusing?
Thanks for the help!

Just add your Google account as a shared family member from your wife’s YouTube TV account.

Suburbanize - That was the answer I needed, thank you. Logged in to my wife's Google account with my phone and now we're both have access. Now my next step is to get the phones to cast to the TV in our trailer. I think all I need is an HDMI adapter. I'll be headed to the store when they open.

I'm not sure what you mean by an "HDMI adapter" or why it would be necessary. Either the phones will directly cast to the TV (if the TV is "smart" enough) or you can add a Roku, Chromecast or Firestick and watch YouTube TV that way.

I have found that a “hard wired” HDMI connection worked way better than casting or airplay.

Using the phone as hotspot usually results in a limit to the data used versus consuming it directly on the phone. (Negating advantage of Roku or firestick on TV)

Simple adapter from Apple plugs into lightning port on phone and provides female HDMI port, short 3 foot HDMI cable then plugs into TV.

I am sure there are similar adapters for android phones using USB-C

We use unlimited hotspot data plans so the on-phone/off-phone issue isn't germane.

We use the "higher end" Roku models which have improved response. They work without any problems. We prefer not having a cable strung through the room.

We do own a Lightning-HDMI adapter; most Android phones do not currently have the ability to use a USB-HDMI adapter.

To each his own.

Which plan provides unlimited hotspot data ? I am only aware of one which is Visible.

Others which claim unlimited throttle back to 3 G speeds after (15/22/30 GB)

Is it a grandfathered plan, or something like Nomad Internet?

At our home base we now have Starlink which is unlimited.

Until we got it we had a 400GB AT&T plan through Millenicom. That was "virtually unlimited" because the data limit was so high.

We also have an unlimited, grandfathered, prepaid Verizon plan.

Streaming YouTube TV

The att elite plan I believe has unlimited on phone data. I believe att moved all those to 40gb per phone max hotspot. Create the hotspot and just use a fire stick or roku stick and connect it to the hotspot …80g ( with two phones ) may be enough for a month if your not big tv watchers.
If you can use a hdmi dongle converter for on phone data , depends on what phone you have and what your streaming. If it’s an apple phone my experience is you’ll need a genuine apple hdmi dongle ., about 45 bucks . The knock offs are problems. I tried several all junk. The genuine one works great

I agree 100% and the key here is pay the $$ that Apple wants because theirs work and the knock off may or may not work.

We have two phones and our iPad Pro on AT&T and have used the lighting to HDMI cable to watch TV. We have problems watching Netflix using our iPhones cast to the TV.

We currently have the FMCA Sprint Connect wand it unlimited data and still current. We use between 400 and 800 gigs per month.

We have a Verizon Grandfathered hotspot that is truly unlimited but not longer available.

Here is another one that I have zero experience with but heard some good reviews.

If just a stop over night and nothing esles except AT&T we will watch TV on the iPad Pro 12"
