12 days of NewsHour: The first* 4K fireplace video on YouTube

Happy holidays from the PBS NewsHour. To kick off our Twelve days of NewsHour, we happily present the first ad-free, longplay 4K video of a crackling fireplace on Youtube. Enjoy the soothing sights and sounds anywhere: on your tablet, mobile device, or streaming to your computer screen or connected television. We’ve merged cutting edge video technology with pre-historic pyrotechnic technology to bring you this holiday-friendly experience.

A few pointers for our viewers:

  • Despite its realism, our 4K video doesn’t actually generate heat, so it won’t dry your mittens.
  • Please refrain from trying to insert a log into your computer screen.
  • There’s no need to provide adequate ventilation – we’re helpfully venting all exhaust gasses out through your internet connection.
  • The PBS NewsHour assumes no responsibility for bad decisions you make during your office holiday party, even if our video is somehow involved.

We want to say thank you for supporting the PBS NewsHour all year long. So kick back, and we’ll throw another log on the fire.

Stay tuned. We’ll release another gift each day until December 19th.

Correction: We updated the title of the post to reflect that another 4K fireplace video beat us by a few days. But ours is free of ads and watermarks.
