YouTube TV service now supports certain Android tablets

Google is working on a dedicated YouTube TV app.


YouTube’s paid subscription service, YouTube TV which is currently available in select U.S. cities now added support for tablets as well. So far, the service enables the users to view 40+ live TV channels and many other privileges only on Android smartphones. But, now onwards it’s gonna change.

The YouTube TV support for Android tablets was officially announced by Google on its Twitter page last week. However, as of now the service is not compatible with all of the Android tablets available. In fact, Google didn’t mention those lucky big screen devices on which U.S. users can watch the YouTube TV. Since, Android 5.0 and above is needed for the YouTube to work on smartphones, we could expect the same requirement for the tablets also.

Additionally, The YouTube service normally costs $35 per month. The subscribed users are entitled to access following features or privileges:

  • Watch live TV from 40+ networks
  • Cloud DVR with no storage limits
  • Record live sports, popular shows, series, news, events, movies and TV episodes
  • Access for 6 accounts per household in a single subscription

Moreover, Google allows the cancellation of $35/month subscription at any time.

Further, it seems Google is working on a dedicated YouTube TV app. It was revealed by the Google’s re-tweat for a users question related to the existence of a YouTube TV app. For which, search-giant replied that a YouTube TV app is under development. Consequently, we could expect a YouTube TV app launch soon in coming days.
