YouTube TV Announces Multiview, Launches Early Access for March Madness

Posted March 14, 2023 at 5:08pm by iClarified
YouTube TV has announced that it is launching the ability to watch two or four streams at once, just in time for March Madness.

Over the years, we've added features and partnerships that help bring viewers into their favorite games — like key plays, fantasy view, 4K streaming and soon, NFL Sunday Ticket. And now, just in time for March Madness, we're launching early access for the ability for fans to watch multiple streams at once.

During early access, some members will begin to see an option to watch up to four pre-selected, different streams at once in their "Top Picks for You" section. After selecting multiview, viewers will be able to switch audio and captions between streams, and jump in and out of a fullscreen view of a game.

YouTube is processing the multiview stream server side, meaning that your device only seeds one live feed, instead of two or four. This avoids the need for customers to have high-end equipment.

Initially, YouTube will only allow users to view multiviews it has created; however, the company plans to expand the feature over time.

"We're introducing multiview gradually and collecting feedback from subscribers along the way," says German Cheung, Engineering lead for YouTube TV. "These insights will help inform the experience as we get closer to the NFL football season kicking off this fall. Over time, we'll refine and add more functionality to multiview, including the option to customize your own multiview streams. And, as you might have already guessed, we're looking to bring this multiview experience to the main YouTube app across TVs later this year."


You can select one of our pre-set multiview streams from a few different places within the YouTube TV app on your smart TV:
● From the Home tab, you'll see multiview stream options under the shelf "Top Picks for You." Choose a multiview stream to open it.
● From the Home tab, choose a live game to open it. Then, select watch in multiview.
● From the Live tab, choose a live game to open it. Then, select watch in multiview.

To close a multiview stream, just hit the back button.
