YouTube TV is finally available on select Android tablets


When YouTube TV — the live TV streaming service — isn’t expanding to new markets, they’re busy bringing more Android users into the fold. As tweeted by the YouTube TV account, the service is now available on select Android tablets. Just download the app you’ll be streaming on a bigger, more easily viewable display.

Originally announced in February of this year, YouTube TV only went live in select markets back on April 5th. At the time, the 4 major networks were covered along with around 30 cable channels but even then, markets were limited. YouTube Live added 14 new markets last month, with the promise of 17 new markets in the coming weeks (to see the full list, click here).

So, now that Android smartphones and tablets are covered — what about new platforms like Android TV and Roku? It seems that too is also being worked on, but the YouTube TV team wouldn’t commit to any sort of release schedule.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.
