Experience YouTube XL on the Big Screen

Last January we introduced a video website especially for people who wanted to access YouTube videos through their Sony PS3 and Nintendo Wii game consoles. You could say we've now "expanded" on that. Just as there's a YouTube browser for mobile devices, the new YouTube XL is optimized for watching YouTube videos on any large screen.

In addition to an all new design offering large text and simplified navigation, YouTube XL offers a continuous play feature, which lets you search for a topic on YouTube and then press "play" once to watch all of the videos sequentially on that topic. Also, getting from one video to the next takes just a few clicks, and you can control the action with a blue tooth enabled remote control, or even some mobile phones.

With millions of HD playbacks daily, YouTube is now bringing popular YouTube favorites like "Where the Hell is Matt?" to the big screen in HD. Also better when bigger: check out larger-than-life roller coaster point-of-view videos, work-out routines with the screen out of high-kick range, university lectures where you can read the blackboard, and home videos the whole family can watch together.
