1080p Premium is an enhanced bitrate version of 1080p HD video quality that delivers crisper, clearer details. This is especially noticeable in videos with intricate details and motion.

YouTube Premium subscribers can enjoy 1080p Premium at no additional cost. The option is currently available on a variety of devices, including smartphones, tablets, computers, and smart TVs.

To enable 1080p Premium, open the YouTube app and go to Settings > Video quality. Select “1080p Premium” from the list of options.

1080p Premium provides a number of benefits, including:

  • Crisper, clearer details
  • Improved video quality for videos with intricate details and motion
  • A more immersive viewing experience

In addition to expanding 1080p Premium, YouTube is also introducing a new video player for smart TVs. The new player is designed to be more user-friendly and intuitive. It also includes a number of new features, such as support for HDR and Dolby Vision.

The new video player is rolling out to smart TVs now. It will be available on all major smart TV platforms, including Samsung Tizen, LG webOS, and Android TV.

Whether or not 1080p Premium is worth it depends on your individual needs and preferences. If you are a videophile who demands the highest possible video quality, then 1080p Premium is a good option. However, if you are not as concerned about video quality, then you may not notice a significant difference between standard 1080p and 1080p Premium.

YouTube is a leading video platform with over 2 billion active users. The company is constantly innovating and improving its products to provide its users with the best possible experience.

The expansion of 1080p Premium and the introduction of the new video player are just two examples of YouTube’s commitment to providing its users with high-quality video.
