    No it's per month according to the article:

    "YouTube TV’s 4K Plus will be available at an additional $19.99 per month regularly, on top of the base $64.99/month price. In an introductory promo offer, new YouTube TV customers can get 4K Plus for $9.99/month for 12 months."

    $19.99 sounds a tad expensive. Even the $9.99 introductory price for new users seems a little high.

    Considering the total absence of linear UHD content in general, it is a lot to pay just to get some of the 4K Olympics coverage.

    AT&T execs will be foaming at the mouth thinking they could have added $20 to their users monthly bill.

    Well when YTTV adds 5.1 sound for LG TVs and/or ATV, I am switching back.
    Paying Comcast $10-30 more a month because off AT&T will get me to switch back. PQ is slightly better but not $28 more for the package and more for Comcast.

    Its $9.95 for all users. I just signed up for it. Load YTTV, go to membership up top "The $ icon" and it should be the first option. I did it because it also lets you stream unlimited streams, and I also plan to get the sports package this fall for football, and why not.

    It’s only 9.99 for a year. Everyone is a new user to the package right now Then it goes to 19.99

    Yea no kidding, although they would’ve had one less sub in me had they gone that direction.

    And if they did charge, it still wouldn’t be worth it even though DirecTV linked MA accounts to Cinema on Genies. That is often overlooked benefit to 4K on DirecTV with internet connection. Just saying.

    That’s $9.99 per month for a year. After that, it’s the $19.99 per month.

    I’d pay $9.99 for a year, but not $ $119.88 for the year.

    Not really a benefit. It’s slow as crap and by the time you get it up you could have opened MA on another device and been 10 min into the movie

    I’ve had no issues like you are describing or it would drive my wife nuts when it’s family movie night on a TV, not a device. I thought you left DirecTV a while ago?

    AT&T TV should cut the price of their entry-level Entertainment package from $70 to $65 to match YTTV. And then, for new subs, roll the 20 in-home streams, unlimited cloud DVR, plus 4K HDR content (which they've yet to introduce) into a "Deluxe" upgrade package for an extra $10/mo. Also think they should offer that Deluxe upgrade free to those who take an optional 12-month renewable contract.

    IMO, that would position them pretty well against YTTV without cutting their profitability too much. But it remains to be seen whether the new DirecTV company that will soon run AT&T TV is hungry enough for new subscribers to go toe-to-toe with YTTV.

    Package price cut isn’t going to happen

    By the time AT&T makes that decision YTTV will rise up to meet AT&T's price. :)
