YouTube TV App for Android TV Now Official, Rolling Out This Week to Select Devices

YouTube TV finally gets a home on big screens

YouTube TV earned a good rating in PCMag's review, nabbing props for its unlimited cloud DVR and fast channel navigation, but we noted it's missing several major cable channels.

In the next few weeks, it will also roll out TV apps for other smart TVs, including those from LG, Samsung and Sony, as well as an app for Apple TV. It's already possible to watch YouTube TV on your TV via Chromecast or Apple's AirPlay, but this new app should make things a lot more convenient.

YouTube TV is now available in all top 50 metro areas in the United States, and will continue to quickly expand to other markets. For a service as important as YouTube TV, it was odd to see Google ignore their TV platform at launch. Features: ‚óŹ Control your live TV experience with your TV's remote control or game controller.

One popular device that won't have the app is Amazon's Fire TV.

The new YouTube TV app also includes several features aimed at sports fans, such as the ability to view team rosters and standings from leagues like the MLB, NFL, and NCAA football when you're searching for live sporting events.

Spain's pass-and-move vs. Mali's run-and-shoot
Abel Ruiz made no mistake in clinching the opener as he hit the middle of the net, leaving goalkeeper Youssouf Koita helpless. Spain come into the game having found their attacking mojo, all the while showing why they are so good at keeping the ball.

It would seem like addressing the big screen with a dedicated TV app would not have been one of YouTube TV's earlier priorities, given its service is largely aimed a younger demographic who doesn't watch much traditional pay TV, and tends to watch video on their phones and laptops.

Never miss the action with our background playback experience built for your big screen.

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

"If you love the simplicity of finding your favorite content on the mobile app, you'll be happy to know you'll still find our signature tabs on the TV app as well-home, live and library", Ikhena wrote.
