YouTube TV added to Roku and Apple TV

YouTube TV added to Roku and Apple TV

YouTube called for feedback to determine whether some state-funded videos warrant a label, while Facebook has asked users to rank which news outlets they trust, in response to criticism that the company allowed misinformation to spread.

The company first announced its intentions to launch the service on Apple TV back in October of 2017. The prime aim of building YouTube Go is to give emerging markets features such as offline viewing and nearby sharing, and ultimately reach the next-generation smartphone users all around the globe. "YouTube Go was designed and built from the ground up with insights from India, in order to bring the power of video to mobile users in a way that is more conscious of their data and connectivity, while still being locally relevant and social". YouTube TV is now available in over 80 metropolitan markets with plans to expand further in the coming months. YouTube TV is a subscription service targeting cord cutters wanting to watch live television. It comes in less than 10MB of size and supports devices running older versions, such as Jellybean.

Another praiseworthy feature of YouTube Go is that the users can share saved videos with anybody without using any data. The new YouTube TV app would be right on time if we were to think of the Super Bowl LII. Once signed up, you are required to install the dedicated YouTube TV app on your Apple TV from Apple App Store or on your Roku device from the Roku Channel Store.




You can download the official app here! For just $35 per month, the streaming service contains a channel lineup that boasts over 40 networks which includes all the staples like FOX, ABC, NBC, and CBS. It can be downloaded for Android TV, Chromecast, Xbox One and newer Samsung and LG TVs.

The direct launch to those devices will be the first major test for YouTube TV: More eyes will mean more scrutiny on how well YouTube's live TV service works, and there are likely to be bugs in the new software as well.

Owners of Roku TVs and players will get the voice-powered Roku Entertainment Assistant free in a fall software update, the company said.
