Earlier today YouTube TV officially launched on Roku players and Roku TVs with a dedicated YouTube TV Roku Channel. Now they have also launched an Apple TV app for Apple TV owners.
Google and Apple did not make any announcement but Apple TV is now listed as a supported device and we have been able to install it on our 4th gen Apple TV. According to the last update, the YouTube TV app now works with iOS 9.1 or later compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch and now the Apple TV.
Update YouTube TV just tweeted this:
And there it is! We are happy to announce you can now use YouTube TV on @AppleTV. 🎉
