YouTube TV Multiview Goes Beyond Sports with New Non-Sports Options
YouTube TV is broadening the appeal of its multiview feature by expanding beyond sports content. Initially, multiview allowed users to simultaneously view up to four sports streams on the screen. However, the service has now introduced additional options, including news, business news, and weather streams, catering to non-sports enthusiasts. Although viewers are still limited to preselected videos and cannot choose their own streams for multiview, the expanded choices offer greater flexibility, allowing them to diversify their viewing experience.
The introduction of multiview occurred in March, aligning with the NCAA’s March Madness tournament, primarily targeting sports fans. The feature is supported on all smart TVs and media players compatible with YouTube TV, as the processing is handled by the service’s servers. While users can monitor all four streams simultaneously, they also have the flexibility to switch to a full-screen view for each stream, adjusting the audio and captioning to focus on their preferred event at any given moment.
