Who doesn’t love a good surprise? Probably most of the victims of our most watched Pranks of 2013. But as for the rest of you, we’ve got one more surprise for you in 2013: we’re bringing you the YouTube app (or “channel” in Roku-speak) today on the Roku 3 in the U.S., Canada, U.K. and Republic of Ireland.


This surprise is packed with features like:
  • HD streaming: Finally see how intense Red Bull’s videos look on your TV.
  • “Send to TV”: Control YouTube on Roku from that sick new phone you just got, turning your TV into your personal JumboTron. Just connect your device to the same Wi-Fi as your Roku.
  • Your subscriptions on TV: Sign in to YouTube and easily get your subscribed channels on your TV like PTXOfficial.
Check out their video to learn more and download the YouTube channel for Roku today.
