YouTube, a streaming video company has announced that official YouTube TV app for Apple TV, which has been made available to download. Apple TV owners can now watch and stream YouTube TV channels on Apple’s set-top box and Roku device seamlessly. In order to stream YouTube TV channels, you only need to launch the tvOS App Store to figure it out.
Released today, Apple is working closely with Google-owned YouTube to promote the new YouTube TV app in a featured banner on the App Store.
The dedicated YouTube TV is now available from the App Store on the Apple TV, where it is featured prominently in a banner.
Prior to its appearance and listing, it was said that YouTube TV Apple TV app was “coming very soon,” apparently meant this offering this early. The new Apple TV YouTube app comes just in time for Super Bowl LII, which is set to take place on Sunday, February 4.
YouYube also took the opportunity to tease Apple TV owners with the launch of the TV app – meant to hit the App Store at the back-end of 2017. The launch has already been rumored for some time now and was well on the cards. And today, it appeared on the tvOS App Store of device owners to download. YouTube TV app must have literally been propagating through Apple’s servers at that very time.
For those unaware of this, YouTube also recently expanded to Roku devices, presumably with the arm of luring new subscribers who want to watch the Super Bowl. As you know by now, that the YouTube Tv service is basically a subscription offering which lets individuals pay $35 a month to get access to television shows and contents from more than 40 different channels.
Another thing to note is that this is a cable-free service which otherwise doesn’t require any additional content and uses YouTube’s own extensive infrastructure and platform to stream the content directly to subscribers through whatever platform they are using. The availability of the new TV app for tvOS means that those subscribers can now access that service through a dedicated, native Apple TV application.
The YouTube TV service, which is priced at $35/month, offers subscribers access to television shows on ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC, the CW, Disney, ESPN, FX, USA, and dozens more. It also boasts more than 40 channels, including live sports and news. It offers unlimited DVR storage space and allows subscribers to access their shows from anywhere in the United States, plus it includes content from the $9.99 per month YouTube Red service, too.
Subscribers of YouTube Apple TV app service are also able to choose which channel they want to watch from all of the available options. They can also see their individual Library content, and can also record directly to the unlimited storage that’s offered as part of the package. These recordings can then be accessed at any point or any device in the select parts of U.S. where the content is licensed.
Introduced back in April 2017, YouTube TV is live streaming service designed to compete with the likes of, such as Sling TV, Hulu with Live TV, DirecTV Now, and PlayStation Vue, all of which are available via apps on fourth and fifth-generation Apple TV models.
The release of this Apple TV app will eventually give YouTube TV subscribers a better chance of doing exactly that by appealing to those embedded in Apple’s ecosystem.
