YouTube's Cord-Cutting TV Service Lands on Roku Devices

Share

Users can choose video playback quality, save videos for offline viewing later, and share videos from device-to-device, all without leaving the app. The services were initially released in March, previous year for iOS and Android-based tablets.

From their previous experience launching YouTube Go in other countries, they have brought some improvements to the app.

The YouTube Go app is the latest addition to YouTube's ongoing presence on mobile devices. Back in December, Google announced that the app for Roku and Apple TV would be delayed until the first quarter of 2018 after the company failed to meet a deadline that was set back in early October. This time around, its availability broadens to a bigger reach of 130 countries. The app will now be accessible to users from over 130 countries in Asia, Africa, South America and more. Reportedly, there are now no plans to extend Go in such countries with established internet connections. Users can download the YouTube Go from the Google Play Store.

YouTube is aiming to tailor the app to each individual market, promising that the home screen will contain locally relevant material that is popular in each user's area, and is available in their language.

In addition to the autopsy draft for shooter Stephen Paddock, records for all 58 victims will be released. Haig said he wonders "What did I miss?" and "Why didn't I pick this up?" in his interaction with Paddock.

YouTube today said it's launching a change to its service that will offer viewers more transparency around where news broadcasters get their funding. Google-owned video streaming site YouTube announced that its streaming live TV service is now available on Apple TV devices. Now, after less than a day of the announcement, you can download the app on your Apple TV's tvOS platform.

Unlike traditional YouTube channels, which serve up pre-recorded content, YouTube TV streams live TV to compatible devices. Some premium and sports networks such as Showtime and Fox Soccer Plus can be had for an additional monthly fee.

The online TV service can also be downloaded for Chromecast, Android TV, Xbox One and newer Samsung and LG TVs.
