With YouTube TV still feuding with Roku, the streaming service is now giving subscribers one of two alternatives by offering either a free TiVo Stream 4K or Chromecast device ahead of YouTube TV launching an optional 4K feature.
Subscribers have been getting the offer in emails, with the TiVo offer saying: “To ensure our loyal YouTube TV members have a great watch experience (including the ability to watch 4K content on our optional new add-on service coming soon!), we want to offer you a free TiVo Stream 4K device.”
Some customers have reported receiving the same email with TiVo Stream 4K device replaced by Chromecast with Google TV device. The emails have a link to redeem the offer which expires on June 30.
YouTube TV mentioned a new add-on package with 4K streaming, offline viewing, and unlimited concurrent streaming at home in a blog post in February.
“After just a few years, YouTube TV now has more than 3 million paid subscribers, 85+ networks, and offers unlimited DVR,” the company said. “Sports fans can even enjoy their favorite games with the ability to view key plays, hide spoilers, and check out real-time stats. And there’s more to come, including a new add-on option that lets viewers watch available shows in 4K or download them to their DVR to watch later offline.”
