YouTube TV On Your Gaming Consoles Are A Go!

Who's to say you need an extra box for your home entertainment center when you can use one you already have? YouTube has kindly introduced a new portal service easily accessible from your Playstation 3 or Wii gaming console browser by typing in this URL: www.youtube.com/tv. Now, videos are browsable with ease and you'll no longer have to worry about formatting issues when watching YouTube on the big screen. That's great news for us, especially since YouTube has finally started to allow high definition streaming through their video service...

Here's a video example on how to use it using your Playstation 3 browser:

We're still playing with the options, but it seems like the high definition button is actually hidden somewhere in the interface (or perhaps not present at all). This would be a complete bummer if they decided to omit such an important feature. If we're able to find it later, we'll update this post. As for now, happy YouTubing videos at regular standard definition!
