The YouTube TV app is available for smart TVs, gaming consoles and even streaming devices. Following its rapid expansion across the US since its April debut, Google's popular competitor to Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, Hulu Live TV, and DirecTV Now, is available to two-thirds of the USA, including the top 50 metro areas, the company also notes. However, the launch was limited by the fact that the service was primarily focused on watching content from a smartphone or tablet. It will also reach LG, Samsung, and Sony smart TVs, as well as Apple TV "in the coming weeks".

Have you signed up for YouTube TV? For a service as important as YouTube TV, it was unusual to see Google ignore their TV platform at launch.

The app will enable users to control the live TV experience with their TV's remote control or game controller. There are now a variety of ways to watch TV right on your mobile devices. The app background has been made dark on TVs for a cinematic look.

After many months of rumors and reports, Google officially announced YouTube TV back in April of this year.

YouTube TV is Google's answer to live TV services like Sling TV, PlayStation Vue, Hulu, and more. We aren't told exactly when the application will be made available though, but Google says it should be available on Android TV "in the next few days".
