Google Announces Rollout Of YouTube Live TV To Roku And Apple TV

02 February 2018

From their previous experience launching YouTube Go in other countries, they have brought some improvements to the app. Users can choose video playback quality, save videos for offline viewing later, and share videos from device-to-device, all without leaving the app. This wider rollout will make YouTube Go available to a large number of people who want the ability to watch YouTube videos, even if they don't have a good connection, or find themselves offline.

The company stated in a blog post, "We're excited to expand YouTube Go to over 130 countries around the globe starting today". For example, users will now be able to stream, download, and share videos in "high quality", in addition to the existing "basic" and "standard" quality resolutions.

The YouTube Go limited preview was followed by the beta release in 2017.

Google has been working on solving this problem with its "offline first" YouTube Go app, but the app has only been available in a handful of countries for the previous year. The app also lets you share videos with nearby friends without using any data. Hulu also recently launched a live TV option baked into its on-demand platform, and it is simply called Hulu Live TV. If you don't have a relatively recent one, you should probably take a look at the list just to be sure, though.

"There is great momentum around the world with localised versions of YouTube now in 90 countries in 80 different languages". If you think it's worth it, you can stream the video right away, or download it to watch later as many times as you like.

The much-awaited launch of YouTube TV on Roku follows a brief hiccup last week.
