Google’s YouTube team has announced it’s expanding the reach of YouTube TV to even more platforms. Starting now, Android TV and Xbox One users can download a new app to take advantage of their subscription, while those on Apple TV and with smart TVs from providers like Sony, Samsung, and LG can expect the same in the coming weeks. This comes after the company allowed voice commands via the Google Home to cast YouTube TV content to your television.

  • Control your live TV experience with your TV’s remote control or game controller.
  • For a more cinematic look, we made the background dark on your TVs.
  • A new Live guide made for your big screen so you can get a sneak-peek at what’s airing soon.
  • Never miss the action with our background playback experience built for your big screen.
  • Easily pick up where you left off on another device when you get home.
