YouTube’s streaming live TV service is now available on Apple TV devices, the Google-owned video site revealed in a surprise announcement this afternoon. In a tweet telling Apple TV owners to check the App Store, the official YouTube TV account disclosed that its app is now available on tvOS devices. This follows news earlier today that YouTube TV has made its way to compatible Roku devices as well.
YouTube TV’s expansion to other popular set-top box platforms has been a bit of a rollercoaster since its spring 2017 launch, with YouTube saying back in December that it had delayed its Roku and Apple TV app launches to the first quarter of 2018 after failing to meet an earlier deadline the company set back in late October. Then, earlier today after when the Roku news dropped, a YouTube representative told media outlets that Apple TV support was coming “very soon.”
