Don’t overlook YouTube TV, folks. More devices have gained support for the $35/mo package that gives you a bunch of channels accessible from anywhere at any time.

Two additional platforms are going to help YouTube TV’s expansion. Google announced that its live television streaming service is heading to Android TV and Xbox this week. Both platforms will offer access to custom-built apps allowing you to watch live TV on your biggest screen without the hassle of a cable company.

Prior to this, using YouTube TV with a Chromecast was the only way to get the service on a television.

The new apps for Android TV and Xbox should be available in the next few days. It’ll be accessible on the NVIDIA SHIELD, Sony’s Android TV-powered televisions, the Xbox One, Xbox One S, and Xbox One X. Other devices like LG and Samsung’s smart televisions will join in the coming weeks. Apple TV, too, will soon get its own YouTube TV app.

If you’re interested, you can try YouTube TV free for seven days. The live TV streaming service is currently in all of the top fifty metropolitan areas in the United States. And its footprint will continue growing into 2018.
