YouTube Introduces 1080p Enhanced Option for Improved Video Quality on TV

YouTube TV users now have access to a higher-quality video option, enhancing their viewing experience whether they’re binge-watching their favorite shows or catching a live game. Google is introducing a new setting called “1080p Enhanced” for YouTube TV and Primetime Channels subscribers. This setting improves upon the existing 1080p60 resolution by enhancing its bitrate.

The update was confirmed by Google following a Reddit user’s post about it on the platform. According to the response, the 1080p Enhanced setting “delivers our highest video quality.” Reddit users who already have access to 1080p Enhanced report that the resolution is available for all the same channels as 1080p60, including Paramount and Syfy. This enhancement follows YouTube Premium’s initiative, which elevated video quality for subscribers on the original platform.
