Aimed at regions with spotty internet connectivity, the app offers an improved video streaming experience with offline viewing, video previews, and downloads.

Meanwhile, Chief Executive of YouTube Susan Wojcicki stated in an online post that this year's priorities include better enforcing rules of the popular video service.

YouTube Go is an offline-first app which allows users to save a particular video to watch it offline or when they are on a slower network. YouTube Go just like its normal counterpart will also be alerting the user if and when their favourite Youtuber ends up uploading a new video. (Disclosure: CBS is the parent company of CNET and Showtime.) Initially restricted to a handful of cities, YouTube TV is now available in more than 80 markets nationwide, covering 80 percent of the U.S. population.

Google's data-friendly YouTube Go app is being expanded globally. Watching YouTube TV on an Apple TV prior to the native app release involved streaming via AirPlay from another device such as an iPad.

YouTube still trails Hulu's 450,000-plus live TV subscribers, according to the same report, and is now available in more than 80 percent of US households. The service lets subscribers view more than 40 channels live, with options like CBS, Fox, NBC, CBS, USA, ESPN, Fox Sports and NBCSN.

YouTube TV has been added to the majority of Roku products including Roku TVs, Roku Ultra, Roku Streaming Stick+, Roku Streaming Stick (3800x, 3600x), Roku Express/Express+.

YouTube TV on Roku players and TVs will work exactly like it does on other platforms. On top of that, if you pay the monthly subscription, you'll be given access to the YouTube Red Originals like Step Up: High Water. Recent news also suggested that compatible Roku devices had received the capability to stream YouTube live TV as well. Back then it was announced that the app is coming to Roku and Apple TV, but the launch on Apple TV was delayed into Q1 2018.
