Apple TV links with YouTube

No need for PC or Mac

Apple is bringing YouTube content to the living room with its Apple TV home-entertainment system. Beginning in mid-June, Apple TV will wirelessly stream videos directly from YouTube and play them on a user’s widescreen TV. Using Apple TV’s interface and Apple Remote, viewers will be able to browse, find and watch free videos from YouTube in the comfort of their living room rather than in the study on their PC.

“This is the first time users can easily browse, find and watch YouTube videos right from their living room couch, and it’s really, really fun,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “YouTube is a worldwide sensation, and Apple TV is bringing it directly from the Internet onto the widescreen TV in your living room.”
