YouTube TV introduces a new add-on that brings 4K quality, downloads, and unlimited simultaneous streaming over a home network to the Google Live TV subscription service.
The “4K Plus” add-on, which costs an additional $19.99 per month, will allow viewers to stream 4K content on YouTube TV for the first time. This assumes they have a compatible TV and streaming device, such as an Apple TV 4K.
Additionally, the add-on allows users to download recorded shows to watch offline on their phone or tablet, AppleInsider reported.
It also introduces unlimited streaming over a user’s home Wi-Fi network. The standard YouTube TV subscription only allows three streams simultaneously.
Along with the announcement of 4K Plus, YouTube also previewed other new features and changes, such as an option to join various segments within a sports program and the ability to search and easily add sports to a DVR.
For all YouTube TV users, the company is adding Dolby 5.1 audio capabilities. The feature will begin rolling out to select devices “over the next few weeks,” YouTube said.
Although the add-on costs $19.99 per month, YouTube is running a special promotion that will bring the price down to $9.99 per month for one year. Users can also avail a one-month free trial of 4K Plus.
