YouTube’s New Paid 1080p Option Released

It turns out that YouTube is working on a new paid 1080p option. The company is finally rolling out the feature for Android and Google TV owners.

YouTube is testing a new 1080p Premium tier with improved bitrate for Android and Google TV users. We’ve learned earlier that this will be a YouTube Premium member-only feature and will offer videos in extra-clear quality.

The new tier was first seen earlier this year when the option rolled out for a few users. It turned out that the feature was also tested for iOS users recently.

The 1080p Premium tier offers a higher bitrate than the standard 1080p option, meaning videos will be played at higher quality and with less buffering. This is a particularly useful feature for users with high-speed internet connections and large TVs.

Paid 1080p Option Arrives with Higher Bitrate

As reported by 9to5Google based on posts on Reddit and Twitter, it looks like the feature is finally rolling out from iOS to Android and Google TV devices. However, this feature seems to be live for only a few select users at the moment.

Obviously, this feature is just another way for Google to encourage YouTube Premium subscriptions.

The introduction of the 1080p Premium tier and now expanding beyond iOS is a sign that YouTube is committed to providing its users with the best viewing experience possible.
