Roku just got Youtube (with Chromecast like streaming)

Very cool

Just updated mine
Had to update the Roku f/w first, then to connect to my yt account it was a case of visiting YouTube.com/activate and entering the code generated by the Roku YT app and to pair my android devices just scanned the qr code.

The YouTube app seems to work well !  Cool
I didn't need to update the Roku's firmware, as is seems to have done it automatically at 01:11 on 22nd April.
Just needed to add the channel, and it worked immediately without requiring a YouTube account login (although that was available as an option to synchronize account preferences).
Thanks again for the heads up  Wink

Not really into YouTube but installed app onto my 2012 Roku LT with no problems - not tested it as yet.
