The over-the-top live TV streaming services combines networks like ESPN, AMC, and BBC America with YouTube Red originals for only $35/mo. For a service as important as YouTube TV, it was odd to see Google ignore their TV platform at launch. The app will not just be limited to Android TV boxes like NVIDIA Shield TV or Nexus player, Google will also make it available on smart TVs including LG, Sony, and Samsung.

As about other platforms, a spokesperson only responded that YouTube TV will "continue working to expand the list of partners". Today, the team at Google has revealed they will be releasing a dedicated Android TV application for those who are subscribed to their YouTube TV service. Last week, the company aired a two-minute ad spot that featured live footage of its service before the first pitch of Game 1 of the World Series, and has scheduled to run at least two 30-second ads along with six-second ads throughout each game of the series.

Since YouTube TV will be integrated into the above devices, you will be able to use your TV's remote control or your Xbox One wireless controller to browse and search for content instead of having to rely on your smartphone or tablet.

Joe Girardi will not return as manager of New York Yankees
Rudy was so surprised by Girardi getting the boot, he even speculated that it might've been Joe's call to take some time off. Yankees general manager Cashman said: "I want to thank Joe for his 10 years of hard work and service to this organisation".

As for the new TV app itself, it's a lot like its mobile counterpart.

The design looks interesting and simplistic so that more and more users can understand it though we are missing the support for the PS4. The YouTube TV app for TV also includes a Live guide that will inform you about what is to begin airing soon. "In fact, over half the time spent watching YouTube TV is consumed through Chromecast on the big screen".
