The Google’s replacement for the traditional cable TV, Youtube TV, showed to be very complicated to be watched on TV. Now, YouTube TV runs on Apple TV, Chromecast, Android TV, and Roku.
What is Roku?
Roku is the largest player in the home media streaming device market, selling 37% of all streaming devices last year.
The closest competitor is Chromecast, with 19%.
So even though this startup has managed to sneak around the home media giants like Apple or Google, it has done so with great success.
Roku it’s a small box, usually under $ 100, which you can connect to your TV to stream videos from different channels or apps. The task of a Roku is to program a channel that the user can open and stream video on the TV.
What is YouTube TV?
YouTube TV is a live TV and movies streaming based on the fast and user-friendly interface of YouTube.
The service costs $35 per month, but if you are a newcomer, YouTube TV will offer you a completely free trial for you to test the service.
