Google's Stadia release date has been revealed

Google has finally revealed the release date of their Stadia game streaming platform, confirming that the service will go live on November 19th 2019 at 5 PM UK time. 

Stadia is a game streaming service which works on PCs, TVs (via Chromecast), smartphones and tablets. The service allows games to be played on seemingly any screen where there is access to an internet connection. 

Before now, Google only revealed that Stadia would release in November, arriving first to Stadia Founders Edition purchasers; who for £119/$129 receive a Chromecast Ultra, a limited edition Night Blue Stadia controller and three months of free Stadia Pro for both the purchaser and a friend. 

Google has confirmed that Stadia orders are being fulfilled and that orders will be delivered in the order that they were purchased. Stadia will be available as a free service sometime in 2020, allowing gamers to buy Stadia games with a 1080p 60FPS resolution/framerate limit. 

Stadia's Pro streaming service will cost subscribers  $10/£10 per month and offer users game resolutions of up to 4K at 60FPS alongside HDR support on applicable titles. At launch, Stadia will be available in 14 different nations, starting with Belgium, Finland, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, the United Kingdom and the United States of America. Availability in more nations will start in 2020.

The biggest issue I see with this is the split game library in the context of Googles long history of abandoning projects, especially when a key competitor (Microsoft) already has crossbuy/shared library between Xbox One/PC and will presumably extend this to xCloud. I'd be willing to pay for a service that allowed me to play games like Horizon 4 on my smartphone or laptop or something.Quote

Sounds like the sub is only for 4k 60. 1080p 60 is "free".Quote

So the streaming service will be free, but I have to buy the game from Google's Stadia storefront? I haven't invested much time into looking up the details of Stadia, so pardon, if this was already discussed.
So for 4K60 people need the Pro subscription. Were there any news about 1080p144 or something along the lines?Quote
