YouTube TV users are now getting the highly anticipated Multiview feature and while some users like it, others feel that it has limited options.

Multiview is a feature that allows YouTube TV users to watch multiple channels simultaneously on a single screen.


This can be handy if you want to keep up with multiple games during a sports event. Or when you want to follow various news channels for breaking stories.

YouTube TV Multiview feature has limited options

However, some users are not satisfied with this feature as can’t freely choose the channels they want to watch in Multiview.

YouTube TV pre-selects the combinations of channels, leaving viewers with limited options. This can be frustrating for those who want more control over their viewing experience.

Multiview feature is getting mixed reaction from users. There are also some users who are contented and satisfied with this feature (1, 2, 3, 4). Here are some reports for reference:


I added You Tube TV in haste so that I could watch Florida-Utah. I love it! I’m using their multi-view option and watching 4 games at once! I wish I had done this sooner! See ya, Spectrum. (Source)

So @YouTubeTV announces multiple game view, but you can’t select it. It’s what they select. What kinds 💩 is that! C’mon do better 🤦🏻‍♂️ (Source)

While the feature allows users to view upto four games at once, it does not let them choose the games they want. Hence, some users are disappointed with the lack of options.

After complaining about the limited options, YouTube support said that they are only offering a pre-defined listing of multiview streams for now. And more changes to the feature will be implemented in the future.

We hope that YouTube brings more options to let users control the multiview feature in a way they want. And when they do, we will let you know by updating this article.
