Google's Roku workaround is to cram YouTube TV into the YouTube app

Google's Roku workaround is to cram YouTube TV into the YouTube app

The ongoing drama between Roku and YouTube TV has, frankly, been hilarious — though it's probably not that funny for customers using the platform since the spat resulted last week in Roku kicking YouTube TV off its platform. While Google has urged affected subscribers to spam Roku's support lines asking to get it back, the company has come up with a workaround for the time being: YouTube TV is now available from inside the YouTube app itself on Rokus.

In a press release issued today, T-Mobile outlined its plans for Android for the latter portion of this year. And those plans pretty much begin and end with the word "Google." The biggest of the deals is that Google's Messages app will now be the standard, default SMS and RCS platform for all T-Mobile Android phones.

New YouTube TV store tab shows off subscription options on smart TVs

New YouTube TV store tab shows off subscription options on smart TVs

YouTube TV is already fairly pricey, as cable-cutting services go. But if you want even more content on top of its standard live TV channels and on-demand video, you can add on more packages (just like old-fashioned cable TV, for better or worse). An interface tweak is making it easier to find these options on television, without having to search for them on a phone app or the web.

YouTube TV set to offer new package with 4K streaming, offline downloads, and unlimited streams

YouTube TV set to offer new package with 4K streaming, offline downloads, and unlimited streams

Since its debut in 2017, YouTube TV has become increasingly expensive. Costing just $35/month at launch, the service will now run you almost twice that at $64.99/month. That's as much as some cable TV subscriptions — so much for "cord-cutting." YouTube TV does try to justify the cost by offering features such as cloud DVR and family sharing (plus occasional freebies), and some new perks are also coming, according to both a recent teardown and an announcement today. YouTube TV subscribers will soon get an add-on package that provides 4K streaming options, plus offline viewing and unlimited concurrent streams.
