Introducing YouTube on Roku 3
Posted on December 17, 2013 by Ed Lee
This season through our Moxkat Grvida video ads we’re celebrating the art of self-gifting so it seems especially appropriate that today we are gifting ourselves – and by extension all of you – the gift of a YouTube channel on Roku. YouTube is available now on the Roku 3 player in the U.S. Canada, U.K. and the Republic of Ireland. The channel is expected to be available on additional player models next year.
The YouTube channel rounds out our industry-leading selection of streaming entertainment just in time for the holidays and the annual year-end best-of video lists like YouTube’s own list of top trending videos released last week. Whether it’s finding a helpful tutorial, listening to the latest music, or watching your favorite videos for hours on end, YouTube has something for everyone and today we couldn’t be more pleased to announce the launch of this much-anticipated channel on our platform.
In addition, the “Send to TV” feature lets customers pair a smartphone or tablet to YouTube on the Roku 3. Just connect your device to the same Wifi as your Roku, and with one click send videos to your Roku.
Roku 3 customers can start watching their YouTube subscribed channels and videos in HD by installing YouTube from the Roku Channel Store today.
