YouTube TV (not YouTube) should offer resolution options up to 1080p. Other streaming applications like Sling and Amazon Prime Video should stream in HD. They do on the stock ROM.
YouTube TV will only stream at 480p and other streaming applications like Sling and Amazon Prime Video do not appear to be streaming in HD. For some reason the YouTube app will stream in HD.
Steps to Reproduce
- Install the Open YouTube TV app
- Choose live
- Click on your local ABC, CBS, NBC, or FOX channel
- Click on the triple dot in the upper right
- Select quality
- Notice that the highest available resolution is 480p. On the stock ROM it would be 720p or 1080p for the exact same video.
