How to Use YouTube TV’s Multiview Feature

YouTube TV Multiview

YouTube TV began rolling out its highly-requested multiview feature in 2023.

With multiview, YouTube TV users can watch between two and four live streams simultaneously on a single screen. This is a desirable feature for sports fans who want to monitor multiple games at once.

The early access launch in March 2023 coincided with the start of the NCAA’s March Madness tournament.

I was added to the early access group to test multiview. Due to user demand, YouTube TV confirmed on March 17 that it was rolling out multiview to all users for the rest of the tournament.

In this article, I’ll share what you need to know about YouTube TV’s multiview!

First Look at New YouTube TV Multiview Feature

At launch, multiview is available when streaming YouTube TV from a smart TV or a supported streaming media player. It is not available on the web or mobile app.

From the YouTube TV home screen, you’ll find multiview streams in the Top Picks for You section.

When you click on any of the available multiview streams, which are selected by YouTube TV, you’ll launch the multiview experience to watch up to four games at once.

Depending on what’s airing, multiview feeds may include as few as two games at once.

For now, pre-set multiview streams are the only option. There’s no way for you to create your own multiview. YouTube TV says customizable streams will be added in the future.

From multiview, you’ll hear audio from the stream that has a white border around it.

You can use the direction pad (arrow keys) on your remote to select a different audio source, and you can click down on a highlighted stream to turn on captions.

To switch to full screen mode, highlight one of the streams and click the Select button on your remote.

If you’re watching in full screen mode and want to return to the multiview experience, click the Back button on your remote. From multiview, you can also click the Back button to exit multiview.

YouTube TV says it will collect feedback from the early launch to improve the experience ahead of the 2023 NFL football season.
