Several users reported on Reddit and Google Community forums about the issue. A user found his spouse unable to access the base plan despite being liked to the family-sharing account. They have had to relink the primary account with the family plan to make it work. Following the backlash, Youtube confirmed the issue and reported they are working on a fix. Here’s the official YouTube statement on the issue with family-sharing accounts.

Just wanted to give an update — engineering is aware of this & is currently looking into how to fix it. In the meantime, there is a workaround. If you remove the family member & re-add them then they should be able to login again. I’ll let you know when I hear more info on this, though!

The issue has plagued a growing number of accounts and YouTube TV is now throwing some pop-up messages to buy their own respective subscription.

After official confirmation, we hope the fix is already there or will be up soon.
