YouTube TV has become one of the top names in the world of live television streaming, and one of the service's main goals last year was supporting more and more platforms. Keeping that trend alive, YouTube TV is finally adding support for its second desktop web browser.

Since launch, YouTube TV has only been viewable on a computer while using Google Chrome. This sort of made sense considering Google's ownership of both services, but it was irritating nonetheless. However, as noted by the eagle eyes at YourTechExplained, YouTube TV now works with Firefox.

On the "supported devices" page for YouTube TV under "system requirements" for a computer, it reads —

For the best YouTube TV HD viewing experience, download the latest version of Chrome or Firefox.

There's still no word on support for Safari, Edge, or other web browsers, but at the very least, this is still a step in the right direction.

  • Firefox is awesome, so this is excellent news!
  • YouTube TV is a top name? Lol. Direct TV and PS Vue each have more than three times the users and channel selection YouTube TV ever will.
  • YTTV works so well. I have both DTVNOW and YTTV and I always prefer to watch on YouTube because it doesn't have interruptions and the interface and DVR is much easier to navigate. But yeah channel selection keeps me with DTVNOW since I was an early user with the big discount.
  • I disagree that it should make sense. It implies YouTube TV isn't using standards. It should be supported out of the box by all browsers.
