Despite countless channels included on Roku, one has been missing since its inception. Now that problem has been rectified, just in time to keep the device a few paces ahead of its latest rival.
Today the set-top box maker announces that it has finally integrated YouTube across all of its devices — or at least those released since July 2011. This includes “Roku LT, Roku 1, Roku 2, Roku 2 HD, Roku 2 XD, Roku 2XS, Roku 3, the Roku Streaming Stick (both HDMI and Roku Ready versions) and the Roku HD model #2500”, says Roku’s Ed Lee.
You can grab YouTube from the channel store, it is available for the US, Canada, the Republic of Ireland and the UK. It is free to install and use, just like most Google services and, for that matter, many Roku channels.
