Today, YouTube is launching its 4K Plus add-on. With the optional add-on, subscribers will get 4K streaming, downloads, and unlimited streams at home.
YouTube TV first mentioned the new add-on package with 4K streaming, offline viewing, and unlimited concurrent streaming at home in a blog post in February and the optional package of features is available for subscribers today.
The add-on costs $19.99/month in addition to the cost of a monthly YouTube TV subscription. Right now, new users can get a one-month free trial and then a price of just $9.99/month for one year.
Here are the features of the new add-on:
- 4K streaming: with a compatible 4K enabled TV and/or streaming device, you can enjoy watching content in one of the best, most crisp resolutions.
- Download shows to watch offline: Take your DVR with you and never worry about missing your favorite shows while you’re without data or traveling on the go. With 4K Plus, we’re introducing the ability to save recordings from your library to your phone or tablet to watch offline.
- Unlimited streams at home: The YouTube TV base package includes three simultaneous streams, but with 4K Plus, you get unlimited streams on your home wifi. That means everyone in the family can catch up on their latest TV episodes, watch a movie on demand, watch their home team, and more – all at the same time!
