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

It was pretty odd that Google didn't launch YouTube TV on their TV platform. In that regard, the search giant announced a new YouTube TV app is now available for the big screen. The YouTube team announced today that YouTube TV would be coming to Android TV, smart TVs, Xbox, and Apple TV. Now with YouTube TV's expansion, Google is eying on leveraging the platform to other means. If you used the YouTube TV app on your smartphone, you know it features the same three main tabs: Home, Live and Library.

In recent years, YouTube has been aggressively trying to position itself as an internet TV power player, joining the likes of Netflix (NFLX) and Hulu. That means the service's subscribers will no longer be required to only cast live programming to their TV sets (through a Google Chromecast device or tools like Apple's AirPlay) or watch live shows on a mobile device, tablet, or computer. In the next few days, Google said you'll be able to stream live TV through the new YouTube TV app on Android TV devices including Nvidia Shield and TVs with Android TV built-in, such as Sony.

The YouTube TV app for TV platforms doesn't look too different from the original YouTube TV for phones, desktops and streaming devices.

A new Live guide made for your big screen so you can get a sneak-peek at what's airing soon.

The new YouTube TV app allows you to pull up the player controls and navigate to your Home, Live and Library tabs without having the video that's now playing turn off. YouTube TV was initially only available in a handful of US markets, but the service has expanded to cover the top 50 markets in the country, representing roughly 68% of American households, the company said.
