Not true. I have an 8 yr old gateway updated to windows 10 and YouTube tv works perfectly. It is actually a very good service. My brother says it is now available on 6 screens but I have not confirmed that. I can't see tivo adding that app to anything but a Roamio OTA
You mean, through a browser window?
TiVo is horrible at streaming compared to Roku, Apple TV, et.al.
You can watch all OTT services in a browser. I think the point was there's no easy way (besides Chromecast) to watch YouTube TV on a TV. I think it's pretty rare for people to have a computer connected to their TV. And for the few that do, working a browser from the couch is a pain. And using a Chromecast is just as painful.
In any case, the YouTube TV app is now availble on Roku which makes the service viable for millions more people. Still too expensive for the limited lineup, IMO, compared to the competition, but it's great to have another option.
Does the Roku app have a guide? I used Youtube TV for a month, ended a few days ago and it was not on Roku. Are you sure it is? Not just announced. Problem with it was no guide beyond current and next.
Yes, I'm sure it's there now. I just installed it. The screenshots show a guide. I haven't run it myself, so I'm not sure how far out it goes. Looks like your trial ended just before the app was released. You can install from the link below.
I just checked the lineup again. Still very weak with lots of gaping holes. I get twice as much on DirecTV NOW for the same price, plus it runs on every platform.
I check my TCL ROKU TV regularly. It now has a guide for OTA channels which is cool and with a thumb drive you can pause. But no YouTube tv yet. Thus is the tv , not a Roku box.
I don't understand. You said you can watch Youtube TV in a browser, which we all agree on. And you're also saying the app isn't on your TV yet, which doesn't surprise me at all.
Maybe this will give you an inisight on exactly which Roku platforms get the new app.
YouTube TV is now available on select Roku devices
In any case, my point and Nash's was that the Youtube TV was on very few platforms until recently. And you still can't get it on your TV either, which supports this point.
Go to streaming channels in Roku TV, Youtube TV is their, select and add. I'm doing it as I write this.
If you don't see it go to Roku account online, find it and add.
