Earlier this year Google announced that they planned to roll out a YouTube TV app for Roku and the Apple TV by the end of 2017. Now according to Cnet they are delayed until the first quarter of 2018.
Google also told Cnet that they now plan to roll out apps for older mart TVs mainly Samsung sets from 2014 and 2015 and Sony TVs that used the older Linux-based operating system. (The 2016 and 2017 Sony TVs running Android TV already have a YouTube TV app.)
YouTube TV recently added support for 60 frames per second (fps) to some channels. At first, it only worked on ESPN ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN News, SEC Network, FS1, FS2, BTN, FX, FXX, FXM, Regional Fox Sports Networks, National Geographic, Nat Geo Wild, Fox Soccer Plus and FS1 sports networks. No word on if the new devices will also support 60fps.
60fps offers a far better experience but also means it takes up twice the amount of data because it is using double the frames every second. So many live TV services have kept 60fps for their sports-related channels.
