Comcast and Google today announced a deal that will launch the YouTube app on XFINITY X1 across the country later this year. X1 customers will be able to easily browse and seamlessly access over the Internet the entire YouTube catalog of billions of videos alongside the live, on demand, DVR and web programming included with their XFINITY TV subscription.

 

X1 customers will be able to access YouTube in the Apps and Networks sections of X1, and via featured YouTube content that will be integrated throughout XFINITY On Demand.  And for the first time, YouTube viewers will enjoy universal voice control with the X1 voice remote and be able to access YouTube content in the following ways:

 

  • Launch the YouTube app by simply saying “YouTube” into the X1 voice remote.

 

  • Browse featured YouTube content alongside other On Demand movies and shows.

 

  • Search for movie trailers or TV show clips by saying, “Show me Adam Levine clips from ‘The Voice’ on YouTube,“ or “YouTube,
    find ‘The LEGO Movie’ trailer.”

 

  • Access hundreds of thousands of music videos by saying,
    “Show me Ariana Grande videos on YouTube,” or “Watch Katy
    Perry’s ‘Chained to the Rhythm’ on YouTube.”

 

  • Watch the world’s best gamers face off by saying, “YouTube,
    Launch League of Legends Championship Series.”

 

  • Search the latest videos from your favorite personalities by
    saying, “Show me Ellen Degeneres on YouTube,” or “YouTube,
    Logan Paul videos.”

 

  • Or search millions of user-generated videos like dinner recipes
    and workout routines by saying, “YouTube, show me chicken
    recipes,” or "Find yoga videos on YouTube.”

 

 

Once launched, X1 customers will be able to browse and access YouTube’s massive collection of digital content, including gaming videos, eSports content, music clips, fitness videos, daily vlogs from YouTube creators, entertainment clips, and real-time trending news, sports and viral videos.  Current X1 and YouTube customers will also have the ability to sign in when accessing YouTube on X1 and readily access their personalized settings and subscriptions. 

 

 

 

When will YouTube on XFINITY X1 be available?

YouTube app on XFINITY X1 across the country later this year.

 

Will I have to pay for the YouTube on XFINITY X1?

This service will be available to customers with an X1 XFINITY TV subscription at no additional charge.



How does YouTube on XFINITY X1 work?

  • X1 customers will be able to access YouTube in the Apps and Networks sections of X1, and via featured YouTube content that will be integrated throughout XFINITY On Demand.

 

  • For the first time, YouTube viewers will enjoy universal voice control with the X1 voice remote and be able to access YouTube content.

 

  • X1 customers will be able to browse and access YouTube’s massive collection of digital content, including gaming videos, eSports content, music clips, fitness videos, daily vlogs from YouTube creators, entertainment clips, and real-time trending news, sports and viral videos.

What apps are available are what is listed in the apps menu.

 

If you have a smart TV that has a youtube app, then that has nothing to do with the Comcast box.

If the OP has a smart TV, it may have YouTube pre-installed.  Of course, that would be controlled by the TV remote, not X1.

What are you seeing after that???

I get an error message APPS 04154 and nothing further. Not sure exactly what this means. 

YouTube might be getting away from their "app" (Samsung recently deleted the YouTube app, Panasonic and Roku still have it) and need in some cases we to access YouTube using a web browser.

I don't recall any announcements from Comcast about apps.

Will this support casting/control from mobile devices?  Our Youtube timne is spent going through videos in the Subscribed list and selecting the ones we are interested in as a large playlist.  Maintaining this level of control, while the main screen continues to play, would go a long way to make us not need our Chromecast anymore.  

 

 

Second question:  Full support for Youtube Red?

Until Comcast comes out with a X1 cable-box capable of 4K, those of us with Ultra High Definition televisions will have to access You Tube through the You Tube app on our smart televisions to watch 4K videos currently on You Tube.

 

Their current X1 boxes cannot output 4K streaming videos. Many HD videos, on You Tube, are 1080p (Blu-Ray) which we current view that way on our UHD televisions. It may be possible for some X1 boxes with 1080p output to support Blu-Ray but we need someone from Comcast to confirm if this is, or will be possible.

 

I would think the Xi5 box would be able to handle the HDR videos I find and watch through the regular You Tube app.

I received a message from Xfinity saying that Youtube would be added to the platform, just like Netflix.  Still hasn't happened.  Anyone know when it will go live?
