9to5Google: Report: YouTube TV getting split screen mode

 

YouTube TV....is said to be getting a “Mosaic Mode” that “will allow subscribers to watch up to four live feeds at the same time by dividing the TV screen into quadrants.” This split screen mode will presumably also support two or three video configurations and sounds particularly ideal for watching simultaneous sporting events.

Three TVs. Times four split screens. Yea. Yea.

I cut the cord finally this week.

Got Verizon 5G internet and Hulu + Live tv, saving about $40/month from the cable/internet bundle here.

Hulu had everything I would watch without having to add extra packages. It has DVR, live sports, local channels, those are the reasons I kept cable. “Live sports” are like a 20 second delay from cable but I’ll live.

Yea, just can't check twitter until commercials lol.

 

I *think* the reason I went with YouTube and not Hulu was that Hulu didn't have MLB Network?  Either way, they had some sort of channel missing that was a non-starter for me.

Yeah, MLB Network was it for me, but at the end of the day, YT TV was more stable than Hulu Live when I was evaluating both a couple years ago. Interesting that Hulu Live has History Channel, and none of the other streaming services do (American Pickers is my jam: fight me!)

How is the 5G home internet going so far Randall? My 5G phone coverage when it turns on is typically mediocre.

No complaints. No interruptions. I’d say at most we have had two TVs steaming at once plus our phones, two laptops, some bougie baby stuff connected to WiFi (nightlight, crib cam). It holds up. Load times might be the same but there is no buffering. I’m not a tech guy so I don’t know how it would do for online gaming or streaming in 4K. But it’s been great so far.

There is zero chance I would move from cable internet to 5G (living in the city, that is).

To be fair, I’m in a suburb and the only cable company option we have (Spectrum) gave me a model cable box that back in Baltimore, Xfinity discontinued probably 10 years ago. If you clicked the guide button, the screen went black and the guide would load from top to bottom about as fast as website in 1995. Fast forward/rewind with any kind of accuracy, not even possible. Internet was probably okay cause streaming was never an issue. But you know with the cable company that if you drop cable but keep internet they jack up the price on that.

I havent made the jump yet. Heck, I still have my landline #.

 

Ive got comcast and we hammered the heck of it, during covid. my 4 grandkids was schooling at my house, between them being online and a few parents and grand parents, with multiple devices, phones and tablets at the same time. Never the slightest problem with slowness. I had upgraded to their X1 Infinity service, so I already had the fast wifi. The printer is wifi, did I mention nintendo switches and xbox during recess?
