YouTube Go expands to 130 countries

Previously, users could only download the video in standard and low quality in the YouTube Go app, however, in the normal YouTube app, users could also download in high-quality.

Meanwhile, Chief Executive of YouTube Susan Wojcicki stated in an online post that this year's priorities include better enforcing rules of the popular video service.

The Android-only YouTube Go app was initially pitched at the so-called "next billion" internet users in India. If a user is connected to a high speed Wi-Fi or mobile data this new feature of the app becomes really useful.

The availability of the YouTube TV app to Apple TV users provides yet another alternative to traditional cable television. Following its launch, the app was made available in PCs, phones, and tablets, and one had to cast the app from their phone to a Chromecast in order to watch it on an actual TV.

Before today, YouTube TV app users could still stream content on their TV screens.

Moving forward, in the U.S. YouTube will display a notice below a video that was uploaded by a news broadcaster that receives some level of government or public funding.




Just in time for the Super Bowl and Winter Olympics, YouTube's live TV service has expanded to Apple TV and Roku devices as of Thursday, Feb. 1. The signup option is not yet available on the TV apps.

Those who own any of the devices mentioned above can now get YouTube TV from the Roku Channel Store.

Back on January 22, CNBC reported that YouTube TV had more than 300,000 monthly subscribers.

While the YouTube live TV capabilities on Apple TV are a welcome addition, the path towards getting the service launched on devices like Apple's streaming platform and the Roku has been a bit of a rocky road. It provides live access to nearly 50 networks including major networks like CBS, FOX, ABC, CW, ESPN, Disney, and more.

YouTube TV is available in almost 100 metro areas, and can also be downloaded for Chromecast, Android TV, Xbox One, and newer models of Samsung and LG TVs.
