YouTube TV Announces an App For Android TV, Smart TVs, & Xbox One”

Google is today launching a new TV app for its premium YouTube TV streaming service. 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.

Ikhena added that YouTube TV, at $35 per month, is now available "in all top 50 metro areas, covering over two-thirds of the United States".

YouTube TV, the online video giant's live-TV subscription streaming service, is rolling out a new app for over-the-top streaming TV devices.

This means that YouTube TV will be available on Android TV devices, including Nvidia Shield; and those TVs with Android TV built-in, like Sony; plus the Xbox One family of devices, including the Xbox One, Xbox One S, and soon Xbox One X in the near future. Apps for smart TVs from LG, Samsung, and Sony will arrive "in the coming weeks", along with an Apple TV version. That was enough to convince the company that it needed to roll out a YouTube TV app that works directly on streaming TV devices. YouTube TV allows consumers in the United States to stream live sports, local and national news on their phone, tablet and PCs.

But with a dedicated TV app, users will now have access to a proper interface that can be controlled by anyone in possession of the TV remote control or Xbox One controller.

This guide resembles a traditional cable TV guide with its rows of channels and programming by time slot. Find the list of features supported on this app below. YouTube TV is really pushing its service as an option for streaming live sports, as the service offers ESPN as well as regional and broadcast networks' live sporting events.

Easily pick up where you left off on another device when you get home.

"It's about getting our service on as many platforms as possible and making it accessible to as many consumers as possible however they like to consumer their content in the living room", Christian Oestlian, YouTube TV's product management director, tells Fortune. If you wanted it on your TV you had to cast it to a supporting device from your mobile device.
