YouTube's live TV service is now available on the Apple TV and select Roku devices.

YouTube TV lets viewers watch more than 40 live channels, including CBS, Fox, NBC, CBS and FX. You can also add Showtime to the mix, though you'll have to pay extra on top of the $35 (£25) monthly fee.

Up to six people can share the same account.

It also comes with unlimited cloud storage for shows, and you can search for content just like you can with Google.

Previously, it was available on Chromecast streaming dongles, Android TV tellies, the Xbox One games console and select Samsung and LG TVs.

The latest announcement brings it to Apple TV devices and all Roku TVs, the Roku Ultra, Roku Streaming Stick+, Roku Streaming Stick, Roku Express and Express+, Roku Premiere+, Roku Premiere, and Roku 4, 3 and 2.

The bad news? It's only available in the US at the moment, with no word of a UK launch.

In the US, the Los Angeles Football Club (LAFC) recently announced a partnership with YouTube TV, making the streaming service the exclusive home of all of the team's locally televised English-language matches. This is a first for a US professional sport.
