  • Roku (NASDAQ:ROKU) Downgraded by BidaskClub

YouTube TV streaming service is now available on select Roku devices, Roku announced Thursday.

Back in October, YouTube TV announced dedicated clients for smart televisions, gaming consoles, and other streaming devices.

In addition to the expanded availability, Google is also rolling out a new version of YouTube Go in the Play Store today. Earlier today, YouTube TV rolled out for Roku devices, another platform for which YouTube promised support a year ago.

As a refresher, YouTube TV lets subscribers watch over 40 channels live, with options including CBS, NBC, Fox, FX, and a ton of others.

According to Zacks, "Roku, Inc.is involved in creating streaming platform for delivering entertainment to the television".

The company added, "We've been working hard to build a YouTube app that works for you, with brand new features designed with your preferences, aspirations and needs in mind".

YouTube TV is already available on Chromecast, Apple TV (via AirPlay adapter), Android TV and Xbox. For those unaware, YouTube TV is presently limited to some 80 metro areas in the U.S., and is available with a monthly subscription plan of $35 (approximately Rs. 2,240) with up to six users allowed per account. However, YouTube TV has been alone among major vMPVD services in being shut out of Roku. The search giant's YouTube TV service is quite intriguing thanks to its paltry $35 monthly fee (often much less than cable TV). Sports fans will also be pleased to know that there are 10 available channels for their Sports cravings, including big ones such as ESPN, NBCSN, and more.

Another praiseworthy feature of YouTube Go is that the users can share saved videos with anybody without using any data.

Cordcutters have many internet-based TV providers from which to choose these days, but one of the most attractive is offered by Google.
