In October of this year, the YouTube team officially announced that support for the YouTube TV app will be rolling out to more devices, effectively expanding the service's reach.
One of the devices on the list is Apple TV. At first, everyone expected the application to be released soon, or at least before the end of this year. It turns out that this is not the case. A YouTube spokesperson said the YouTube TV app will not appear on Apple TV until early 2018.
'Apps for Roku and Apple TV, which were originally supposed to be out before the end of 2017, will now only be released in the first quarter of 2018. Also, apps for old Samsung 2014 and 2015 smart TVs will be released in early 2018, as well as Sony with OS based Linux '.
The delay affected not only Apple TV. The app for Roku devices will also not be released until early 2018. It will also be released for older Sony and Samsung models that do not have Android TVs.
The YouTube TV app is designed to compete with cable TV. The subscription costs $ 35 per month and contains multiple channels. If you want to add more channels, the price will increase. The app is currently available in over 80 cities in the United States.
