Today YouTube TV announced new Multivie support that will now support sports and news channels. Now you will be able to watch multiple news channels or sports channels at the same time.
This is great news for news fans that want to watch breaking news from multiple news networks at once.
This comes as YouTube TV has promised to roll out more multiview features that let you watch more than one channel at once. For now, you are limited on what channels are supported, but hopefully, soon, more channels will be added.
If you want to find these new multiview channels, you will find a new Multiview hub on the YouTube TV home screen with all the available multiview channels.
Here is what YouTube TV announced today:
Starting today, a small portion of members will see us testing our brand new always-on multiview streams! You’ll be able to watch up to 5 pre-selected multiview streams 24/7 across Sports, News, Business News, Weather, and Deportes channels on living room devices. Don’t worry if you don’t have access yet, we’re gradually rolling this out to YouTube TV subscribers over the summer. We appreciate you hanging tight while we test out these new features with smaller groups of users to make sure they’re ready before rolling out to everyone.
When will I have access to these new multiview streams? We’re in the process of gradually rolling this out to all subscribers over the summer. There’s no way to opt in for early access, but I’ll confirm on this thread once the rollout is complete.
Where can I find these new multiview streams? You’ll see multiview stream options in the “Watch in multiview” section on your Home tab.
Which devices can I watch these multiview streams on? Multiview is currently only supported on living room devices. We’ll let you know if this changes!
Can I choose my own multiview streams? We’re currently only offering pre-selected multiview streams.
Will I have access to multiview streams during NFL Sunday Ticket? Yes! You’ll have access to multiview streams for NFL Sunday Ticket. We’re working on some improvements, so stay tuned for specific updates as we get closer to the start of the season.
Hope you enjoy! Excited to hear your feedback.
