YouTube XL Brings YouTube To Your TV

YouTube XL Brings YouTube To Your TV

Fancy watching TV clips from YouTube on, well, your TV? YouTube introduces its own TV-sized interface called YouTube XL.

At the beginning of the year Google unleashed an optimised interface for the Wii and PS3, but YouTube XL appears to be the next step in that progression. The new and improved YouTube XL (presumable the XL stands for extra large) boasts a better interface than the old “YouTube for TV,” though it lacks a few of the features available on YouTube proper. (Namely comments, which is arguably a positive.)

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.

  • Greatest waste of time ever. I can’t read the full title of what i’m looking for on youtube xl and thus have to waste time clicking on a load of different clips to find what I want. 🙁
    absolute fail imo, is there a way to get rid of it?
