Updated: Official YouTube TV App for Apple TV Now Available
See update below:
An official YouTube TV app for Apple TV is thisclose to becoming a reality. This news comes on the same day the service officially launched on Roku, according to CNET.
According to a YouTube representative, an Apple TV app for YouTube TV is “coming very soon.” Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time YouTube has promised its premium service would soon be available on Apple TV.
Back in October, they noted in “the coming weeks we’ll be launching the new app on Smart TVs, such as LG, Samsung, Sony, along with Apple TV.” In December, the Google company told CNET that YouTube TV apps for Roku and Apple TV were delayed until the first quarter of 2018.
With YouTube TV finally on Roku, perhaps we will see the service arrive very soon on Apple’s hobby device. Stay tuned.
First launched last April, the over-the-top (OTT) internet YouTube TV service offers over 40 television channels for $35 per month. To date, it’s available in more than 80 areas around the United States.
The YouTube TV app is now available on Apple TV in the U.S. You can download it via the Apple TV App Store.
We're pretty excited for that YouTube TV app too! Happy viewing!— Team YouTube (@TeamYouTube) February 1, 2018
