Features Of YouTube TV

Among all the best features available in it, the one I personally love is truly unlimited cloud DVR feature which keeps YouTube TV stand out from others in the market. Because it’s a Google product so you get this benefit of unlimited cloud DVR recording that no other streaming service offers as of now and DVR recording can be stored for up to 9 months.

In this, you can create the 6 user account and 3 users can stream YouTube TV at a time unlike other streaming services like Hulu each user get separate user experience as per their choice and personalization because each google account gets its own TV experience because of every user login with their own created user credentials.

Other features like voice control, picture in picture mode viewing experience, on-demand content, and much more.
