    So I guess this is the wrong thread to ask if there's any more word on the YOUTUBE app availability?

    Back in the day when I sold TVs, we used to ask "What does SONY stand for?

    "Soon Only Not Yet."

    youtube app needs a little tweaking when you listen to videos through the app on your tv it sounds great but when you try to listen to it on the bluetooth soundbar it needs to be fixed a little bit more.but otherwise it is allright.

    The YouTube app was included in DISH's latest software update pushed to Hopper 3 set-top boxes last night. With this update, DISH becomes the only nationwide pay-TV provider in the U.S. to deliver YouTube via set-top box. YouTube joins several Hopper apps that together bring a range of entertainment options to customers, including Netflix, Pandora, Vevo and The Weather Channel.

    "We designed Hopper 3 to be much more than a conventional set-top box," said Niraj Desai, DISH vice president of product management. "By aggregating apps like YouTube and Netflix with live linear television, Hopper 3 is capable of serving as a household's comprehensive entertainment hub."

    Users watch hundreds of millions of hours on YouTube every day, generating billions of views. DISH customers can now search, browse and play videos, as well as log into their YouTube and YouTube Red accounts, directly on a Hopper 3.

    The YouTube app on Hopper 3 can be accessed from channel 371 or by selecting the "Apps" button on the remote control. Customers can also use the YouTube app on mobile devices to cast videos directly to their Hopper 3.

    Big surprise to me, as I was told earlier in the week that it would just be going to employees this week.

    Note if you did not get it yet, you will just have to wait until your receiver is targeted there is no way to force it.

    The 4K issue, if I recall, was hardware-related, so that will never change with the Hopper 3.

    Yes it is. The hardware on the Hopper 3 does not support the VP9 encoding that Youtube uses for it's 4K.
