YouTube TV has lowered the cost of its 4K Plus add-on to $9.99 per month for all subscribers and this has also resulted in the add-on dropping down to $4.99 per month for new subscribers. This is not the first time the add-on has dropped to this price, but this change appears to be a permanent one along with the other price changes.

While a reduction in price from $19.99 to $9.99 is beneficial to subscribers, the change was introduced along with a price increase to the base live TV plan. For most new and existing subscribers, including many (but not all) of those signed up to the 4K Plus add-on, this will mean that they end up paying a higher rate for their live TV package each month.

For new subscribers in general, as well as those that have yet to try out YouTube TV’s 4K add-on, the cost of 4K Plus has now been reduced down to just $4.99 per month for the first 12 months. Previously, YouTube TV was routinely offering the option to try the add-on at $11.99 or $9.99 per month for the first 12 months.

Subscribers also are still able to take advantage of a 30-day free trial when adding 4K Plus to their base plan.

At the new and discounted $5 rate, the cost of the base plan, along with the ability to watch in 4K, download recordings to watch offline, and stream on an unlimited number of devices at home, comes in at $77.98 per month.

Even when taking into consideration the recent price increase, that’s only $3 more than YouTube TV was previously charging those signed up at the discounted $9.99 per month rate, and only $1 more than those signed up at the $11.99 promotional rate.

Whether new to YouTube TV, or now considering giving the 4K Plus add-on a try, it is worth keeping in mind that the discounted $4.99 per month rate only applies to the first 12 months. After which, subscribers will automatically be billed $9.99 each month.

In addition, if the add-on is removed within the first 12 months, the subscriber will lose the ability to resubscribe again at the same promotional rate.
