For more than four years, Youtube TV has been around, but a key feature is missing: the ability to stream in 4K. In a blog post earlier this year, Youtube committed to fixing that.YouTube TV will have a new add-on called 4K Plus starting from 28 June. It will enable 4k streaming, assuming the user is having a streaming device and compatible TV. The 4K Plus add-on also includes downloading recordings from DVR to a tablet or a phone. This feature will be helpful for people who will start traveling more this summer.
4K Plus also lets streaming YouTube TV from unlimited devices when at home. YouTube TV is already one of the pricier streaming services out there, at $64.99 per month. By choosing YouTube TV, one might not save money. In the basic YouTube package, three devices can be streamed simultaneously. The 4K Plus add-on costs $19.99 per month, on top of whatever the existing YouTube TV plan costs. Over the past few years, the price of YouTube TV has risen significantly. YouTube might have its own benefits over traditional TV, but not in terms of pricing.
To new users, YouTube TV offers a one-month free trial, after which you can sign up for $9.99 per month. Everyone using YouTube TV is also getting an upgrade in the audio department. 5.1 Dolby audio will soon be supported by the service, regardless of what plan you’re on. Not many details are available on how it will work. YouTube says it’ll “start rolling out to select devices over the coming weeks,” but the devices they are talking about are not known. The company previously teased these features in February.
There is no additional cost for the sports upgrade. This new feature will allow viewers to jump to critical plays and specific highlight moments when trying to catch up live or watching a DVR recording. If viewers tune in late, they can watch vital moments from the game and then jump right in live. It Will allows viewers to search for specific sports to add to their DVR, and there is no storage space limit.
