YouTube TV doesn’t offer 4K streaming, but you can find some 4K content on YouTube — here’s what you need to know
- Currently, YouTube TV doesn’t have 4K streaming capabilities, but you can stream content in 1080p, which is still a very high resolution.
- Some YouTube videos are available in 4K, however, as are a selection of shows and movies that can be purchased or rented.

Here’s the thing — with a few exceptions, even the tip-top quality videos on YouTube are only going to be 1080p resolution, especially considering the millions of videos uploaded using phones or cheap amateur cameras.
The easiest way to find 4K content on YouTube is to simply add the term “4K” to your search terms. However, you should note that not all content labeled as “4K” is necessarily 4K-quality.
You can also find some 4K content available on YouTube for an extra fee. YouTube offers a library of movies and shows that you can rent and stream in 4K UHD resolution that will look amazing even on the largest of TVs. These include many recent movies, as well as classic titles.
And if you’re looking for 4K streaming content, try Hulu, Netflix or Prime Video.
