31 Oct 2017 | Rasmus Larsen |

Google’s live TV service is expanding to Android TV devices, including Nvidia Shield, as well as Apple TV, Xbox, and Smart TVs from LG, Samsung and Sony.

YouTube TV is expanding

YouTube TV was launched in April 2017 as a live TV service built on the concept of TV channels. Since then, Google has been rolling out its service to the top 50 metro areas, now “covering over two-thirds of the U.S”, and adding new features.

YouTube TV is now expanding to a range of TV devices, starting with Android TV based devices such as Sony TVs and the Nvidia Shield as well as the Xbox One (including Xbox One S and One X)..

It will also soon be available on Apple TV and select Smart TVs.

- “In the coming weeks we'll be launching the new app on Smart TVs, such as LG, Samsung, Sony, along with Apple TV. We also recently expanded our TV device support by launching voice commands with Google Home paired with Chromecast,” said Google.

YouTube TV was already available on mobile devices as well as through Chromecast and Airplay. Roku and FireTV were not mentioned in the press release.

- “We know you love watching TV content on, well, your TV. In fact, over half the time spent watching YouTube TV is consumed through Chromecast on the big screen,” the company said.

Along with the TV-centric app, Google has added new features such as a dark theme and a new Live Guide.

What’s new in YouTube TV:

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.
