When I had it Youtube TV was 1080p and looked fantastic for live TV. It looked even better than Directv sat service. On demand probably goes to Netflix.

In the U.K. it is ATV+ their bit rates for audio and video are way above Netflix, Prime, Disney+ and more importantly it looks and sounds better as well. ATV+ just needs more content - george

I think it’s subjective, depends on your TV as well as streaming device, internet speeds, etc.. I think netflix is pretty good on Appletv. Admittedly I have not used too many other services..

Watching content on Amazon Prime, Netflix, and Apple TV+ The Audio is definitely better on Apple. I came searching though to see how the other streaming services compare to direct TV for regular channels and networks.

YouTube. 4k/60fps/60Mbps bitrate.

The great thing about YouTube is that it appears the bitrate of the videos is limited only by the uploader.

XBOX Live: Wagmman
PSN: Wagg
BFBC2: Wagman
Steam: Wag

My Second Life character looks and acts exactly like me except he can fly.

I agree with most of this (but I didn't have the old fiber cable)
UHD BD better than all the steaming services so that's what I've been using most.

In an era of exclusive content, service streaming quality doesn't matter. It's how much you want to watch a given program or film, you may not have alternative services to watch with. Theatrical movies and some VOD you'll have more choices, then it matters.

I'd be fairly interested in a rating/comparison of the Movies Anywhere compatible services. I know I default to Vudu for Atmos support on AndroidTV, but I'd be interested (surprised) to hear if another service has superior video bitrate/PQ (save for iTunes which I can't access since I don't have an AppleTV).
