YouTube TV finally gets a proper Android TV app

Google Is Making It Easier to Stream Live Television With a New YouTube TV App

Google rolled out YouTube TV earlier this year and it has been expanding ever since. Since the launch of YouTube TV in April, users can stream live sports, local and national news, and TV shows on their phones, tablets, and computers. An Apple TV app will be available in the coming weeks, along with clients for LG, Samsung, and Sony smart televisions.

The app comes with a personalized "home" feed that combines live TV recommendations with DVR recordings into a single feed meant to be tailored to your interests. In addition to that, the Xbox One family of devices (Xbox One, Xbox One S, and beginning in November, the Xbox One X) from Microsoft is getting a YouTube TV app. "We wanted to bring in the themes that people know and love form the mobile app, while making it easier to navigate the freshest content using the real estate on a TV". The app background has been made dark on TVs for a cinematic look.

Until now, YouTube TV has been available via mobile, desktop and casting, but did not have a standalone app for TV viewers.

A new Live guide made for your big screen so you can get a sneak-peek at what's airing soon. That format is something that a number of live TV services have been adopting recently, including Hulu and Sling TV. For example, both display rows of the channels. "In fact, over half the time spent watching YouTube TV is consumed through Chromecast on the big screen". This way, YouTube can spread its network even to the older demographics by connecting with traditional pay TV.

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

What do you think about the YouTube TV app?
