Thursday in CE: YouTube TV Comes to Roku, Apple with No Word on Firestick Spat
In a surprise twist that ended up actually hurting customer experience, Google and Amazon have been in a mild spat that led to YouTube being removed from Firestick. Yes, there is a workaround and yes it's terrible.
That makes the second narrative popping up even more interesting, as Roku and Apple TV are adopting YouTube TV on their respective cord-cutting platforms. The app is the same as the oneon Android TV, Xbox One and other platforms, complete with access to YouTube TV's unlimited cloud DVR, personalized recommendations, and a full grid-style program guide.
In addition to Roku, a YouTube representative confirmed to CNET that the app for Apple TV is "coming very soon."
