Probably because the subscription fee is among the highest in any service.

I have YouTube premium on our households shared account.

Wifey has her own YouTube account, I have my own from back when YouTube started. And we have a joint account where we sub stuff we want to watch on the living room tv together. That account being on premium means no ads for the app that we use to run YouTube on the TV.

So increased Bitrate sounds fun to me. I’ll see it when/if they roll it out here. And since it’s a 4K TV we should notice a difference.

I would love to bash Youtube, but I cannot even fathom how crazy their bandwidth costs must be, globally. Let alone their storage, search processing, physical site costs, etc.

Oh, thank Jeebus. Youtube's 1080p compression is atrocious.

As an aside, it baffles me how in 2023, there are still so many official movie and game trailers/gameplay videos that are still only uploaded as 1080p max. This has frustrated me most recently with Blizzard and official Diablo 4 material. I would think you'd want to advertise all the hard work that went into your art, and Diablo 4 looks incredible. But no, I have to watch a video with the bitrate equivalent to someone reading the binary data off a sheet of paper out loud.

Luckily, Nvidia's new video super resolution tech is fairly decent in many scenarios (though it could still use some improvement).

Don't feel sad for the monopoly holding behemoth. YouTube generates revenue through various channels in addition to their premium service, YouTube Premium. Some of the ways YouTube makes money include:

1.) Advertising: YouTube earns a significant portion of its revenue through advertising. Content creators, also known as YouTubers, can monetize their videos by allowing ads to be displayed before, during, or after their videos. YouTube shares a portion of the ad revenue with content creators, while retaining the remainder as its own revenue.

2.) YouTube Partner Program (YPP): The YouTube Partner Program allows content creators to earn money by monetizing their videos through ads. To be eligible for YPP, creators need to meet certain requirements, such as having a minimum number of subscribers and watch hours. Once accepted into YPP, creators can earn money through ads on their videos.

3.) Channel Memberships: Content creators with large followings can offer channel memberships to their fans, where fans can pay a monthly fee in exchange for exclusive content, perks, and access to community features. YouTube takes a percentage of the membership fees as revenue.

4.) Super Chat and Super Stickers: YouTube allows viewers to purchase Super Chat and Super Stickers during live streams and premieres. Super Chat allows viewers to have their messages highlighted in the chat, while Super Stickers are animated stickers that viewers can use to show support. Creators receive a portion of the revenue generated from Super Chat and Super Stickers.

5.) Merchandise sales: YouTube creators often sell merchandise related to their channel, such as clothing, accessories, and other branded items. YouTube provides tools and features to help creators set up and sell their merchandise, and earns a percentage of the sales as revenue.
