YouTube TV finally gets a home on big screens

YouTube TV finally gets a home on big screens YouTube TV App for Android TV Now Official, Rolling Out This Week to Select Devices
June Sullivan | 31 October, 2017, 00:51

Following its rapid expansion across the US since its April debut, Google's popular competitor to Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, Hulu Live TV, and DirecTV Now, is available to two-thirds of the USA, including the top 50 metro areas, the company also notes. The app will hit smart TVs from Samsung and Sony and Apple TV "in the coming weeks". Still, the service's coverage has been expanded to more than a dozen cities in the United States in the last couple of months, which proves Google is committed to bringing YouTube TV to as many consumers as possible. It was pretty odd that Google didn't launch YouTube TV on their TV platform.

Up until now, most YouTube TV subscribers have used the service in conjunction with a Chromecast (the service also supports Apple's AirPlay), though a dedicated TV app has been among the most-requested features. If you used the YouTube TV app on your smartphone, you know it features the same three main tabs: Home, Live and Library.

Available now for NVIDIA Shield TV, televisions with Android TV built-in, and Xbox One consoles.

Google rolled out YouTube TV earlier this year and it has been expanding ever since.

As for the new TV app itself, it's a lot like its mobile counterpart. It also has a new "live guide" feature that lets you browse live TV without pausing whatever you're now watching. What makes the TV app different is a dark background instead of the white one for the mobile version. "In fact, over half the time spent watching YouTube TV is consumed through Chromecast on the big screen".

Easily pick up where you left off on another device when you get home.
