Video streaming web site YouTube announced a new beta service today called YouTube for TV (if you want to try it in your regular browser, here’s how). To begin with, the service is available on Sony PS3s and Nintendo Wiis, offering a “10-foot television viewing experience through a streamlined interface that enables you to discover, watch, and share YouTube videos on any TV screen with just a few quick clicks of your remote control.” Sounds good so far, but if you’ve got a Wii or PS3, let’s hear what you think in the comments.

  • Probably the biggest change is making it easier to click places using the wii mote – some links were too small and accidently clicked on with the default browser originally.

    Functionality wise though, it’s more similar to the menu strip that comes up when you mouseover an embedded movie now.

    More funny, is that Youtube runs better for me on the Wii, instead of the ps3! On top of that, the ps3 version’s playback is much more choppier on some videos.
