YouTubeTV Finally Got an Upgrade
 

 
YouTube TV add-on brings 4K streaming, offline DVR downloads for $20 extra

The live TV streaming service also adds 5.1 surround sound and better sports searches to its basic $65 price.

YouTube TV, Google's live TV streaming service designed to replace cable, is getting more pixels. Starting Monday, subscribers can add an upgrade package, called 4K Plus, which delivers TV programming in 4K resolution and HDR, including live sports like the upcoming 2020 Tokyo Olympics and the MLB All-Star Game.

Basic YouTube TV service costs $65 per month and adding 4K Plus increases the price another $20, to $85 per month total. New users get a price break, however. YouTube is offering a one-month free trial of 4K Plus and a price increase of $10 per month for the first year, bringing the total down to $75 per month.

By signing up, you agree to our Terms of Use and acknowledge the data practices in our Privacy Policy. You may unsubscribe at any time.

In addition to 4K, the add-on lets subscribers download shows from the service's cloud DVR to watch offline on phones and tablets. A third benefit is unlimited simultaneous streams at home. Without the add-on, YouTube TV subscribers can only watch three different streams at the same time.

Two other new features are also available to all YouTube TV subscribers, whether or not they buy the add-on. The first, rolling out to select devices in the coming weeks, is surround sound audio. YouTube says 5.1-channel Dolby Audio has been one of its most requested features. Though most other live TV streaming services offer on-demand content in surround sound, they will only play stereo sound on live TV.

Google has beefed up DVR search to make it more useful to sports fans.

The second is beefed-up DVR capabilities for sports broadcasts like the Olympics, offering the ability to search for and jump to specific sports within a recording, in addition to a medal counter for each country.

FuboTV is the only other service with 4K sports, and it does have a couple of events coming up, but it hasn't yet confirmed if the Olympics will be broadcast in 4K. Unlike YouTube TV, Fubo doesn't charge extra for 4K broadcasts, but if it was a choice between the two competing services, we like the basic YouTube TV package better overall.

YouTube ratchets up Roku face-off by adding YouTube TV to main YouTube app
Unlike 4K movies and TV from on-demand streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video, live 4K TV programming is still rare. The biggest upcoming live 4K event is the Olympics. 4K Plus on YouTube TV will include live primetime Olympics 4K coverage from NBC, including the opening ceremonies and live events, according to people familiar with the matter.

Other sporting events in 4K on YouTube TV include the upcoming MLB All Star Game on Fox and college football on ESPN.

4K Plus also offers some on-demand 4K content, including shows like Make this Tonight from Tastemade and Misfit Garage from Discovery, as well as content from FX.

To watch 4K Plus requires a compatible 4K smart TV or 4K streaming device connected to a 4K TV. Despite the fact that the YouTube TV app is no longer available on the Roku Channel store, Roku users will be able to watch in 4K on an existing app or inside the main YouTube app.

Signed up for this yesterday. Free for 30 days, then an extra 9.99 a month, but... the unlimited screens.... worth that alone. It's on the network, but you still have the 3 screens non network specific (as I understand it).

Yeah its a touch pricy. For me... worth it. Unlimited DVR, easy user interface, never have any loading issues, 4k (now), unlimited screens in house (now), good channel selection -- them not having local Fox Sports Network channels is a downside, but.... after that -- its been good.

If you compare it to other channels that offer sports channels such as ESPN, ESPN 2, and the NFL Network, they are in that same range.

I don't watch enough tv to justify it though.

It's definitely worth it & cheaper than cable. I've been using it since last summer & haven't had any problems with it. & it's easy to switch between watching on your phone or on TV

Also records my shows & can pause live TV, also has on demand movies

Where do you live where your xfinity still has a data cap? I remember they tried rolling that out in Florida a couple years ago for about 6 months before they reverted that sh*t. It’s been unlimited again since.

Let me ask you this...if I have YouTube TV, do I still have commercials, double and triple commercials on regular YouTube videos?

Yes and no. If you’re watching live tv yes. If you’re watching shows vod yes (those long ads like 8 in a row similar to those found on Hulu). If you’re watching movies vod then no it’s like Netflix. Some shows I watch vod don’t have adds though like I just watched the latest episode of Rick and morty without adds.

Oh you’re talking about regular YouTube. Yeah you need YouTube premium to remove adds, they don’t bundle any additional services with YouTube tv. They need to bundle TV, YouTube premium, and YouTube music together

unlimited dvr alone made it worth it to me. My kid can always watch his favorite shows instead of a chopped up youtube mess.

Commercials yes. But mostly a couple commercials then the “here’s some zen” with something relaxing.
