YouTube found a big opportunity in the worlds of internet video and traditional television clash. The company launched YouTube TV in April which allows users to stream live sports, local and national news.
Throughout the last five years, major cable and satellite television providers in the U.S. are losing millions of subscribers. Considering this, the subscription TV service is launching a YouTube TV app that will work on the big screen including, smart TVs, streaming boxes, and game consoles.
In the coming weeks, YouTube TV will be available in the app store for any Android TV devices including NVIDIA SHIELD and Xbox One devices. It will be also available on the Apple TV, Roku, and smart TVs from Sony, Samsung, and LG, said, YouTube TV product manager Okalo Ikhena. You can receive response from the YouTube TV through voice commands while streaming video on Chromecast by using a Google Home device.
The service has been expanded to the top 50 television markets in the U.S. that means, the service will provide local broadcast signals on YouTube TV for around two-thirds of U.S. households, according to Christian Oestlien, YouTube TV’s product management director.
Oestlien said, “That achievement is an exciting number for us, but it is by far not where we are going to stop.” “We want to go all of the ways to nationwide,” he added.
So take the YouTube TV membership and start watching on the big screen. After signing up you will receive notifications of launch updates.
