YouTube has just announced that it will be bringing a bunch of new features to YouTube TV, in the form of an add-on package with 4K streaming, offline viewing, and unlimited concurrent streams. The features are set to roll out in the next few weeks, according to the company.
No additional details about the new features have been shared, such as whether offline downloads will be limited to certain channels or shows, or what kind of content will be available to watch in 4K streaming.
As for the concurrent streams, YouTube currently offers only three concurrent streams at maximum, but it looks like the company will soon remove this restraint, hence allowing users to enjoy unlimited concurrent streaming from the comfort of their homes. The addition of offline viewing is a big one, as this feature is rarely offered by streaming services.
The term “add-on package” indicates that in order to avail the new YouTube TV features, users would have to pay more than the standard $65 monthly subscription.
