  • YouTube TV finally gets a home on big screens

Now, it'll be available through the YouTube TV app for actual big screen TVs. Following its rapid expansion across the US since its April debut, Google's popular competitor to Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, Hulu Live TV, and DirecTV Now, is available to two-thirds of the USA, including the top 50 metro areas, the company also notes.

Oestlian says that YouTube TV found that more than 50% of the time spent on the service is spent casting live programming onto a television, and that those users are casting YouTube TV for about 4 hours each day. 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.

Good news, cord cutters: YouTube's $35-a-month streaming TV service is branching out.

Details around launch plans for other TV platforms, like Fire TV and Roku, aren't available.

If you use an Apple TV, Samsung TV, or Sony TV, don't worry.


YouTube TV launched in April of this year as Google's entry in the live-TV subscription streaming market, which also features rivals like Hulu Live TV, AT&T's DirecTV Now, Dish Network's Sling TV, and Sony's Playstation Vue.

Google is also aggressively promoting its new TV streaming service.

For a more cinematic look, we made the background dark on your TVs.

Susanne Daniels, YouTube's content head, told The Hollywood Reporter earlier this month that the goal is to have new shows that resonate in a big way with audiences and "once that happens [they'll] be on that list - like it or not", with TV subscription rivals. If you're out somewhere watching YouTube TV on your mobile device, you'll be able to pick up right where you left off when you plop down on your couch at home.
