Roku says its impasse with Google over carriage of its YouTube and YouTube TV apps has remained despite six months of efforts to resolve it.
The distribution deal for YouTube’s main app is set to expire on December 9. YouTube TV, the pay-TV service with more than 3 million customers, already reached the end of the line last spring. Roku removed it from its channel store, meaning no new customers have been able to sign up, but existing ones have still been able to access their subscriptions. If the December deadline arrives without a deal, new Roku smart-TVs and connected devices...
Google's YouTube ratcheted up its dispute with Roku Thursday soon after Roku posted an update for its customers on the state of their talks, which have been dragging on since late April. If the two sides fail to reach a deal by Dec. 9, both the main YouTube app and the smaller service YouTube TV will be blocked from any new Roku devices, Google said. (Existing users on existing Roku devices will still be able to access both apps.)
YouTube is a plethora of video resources, particularly for music videos. You'll need an MP3 converter or a YouTube downloader to download them and extract the music files. You can save the music file to your computer or a USB drive. If you want to transfer a video from YouTube to a USB device, you must first capture and convert the video on your computer. The captured video file can then be transferred to your device using a USB cable.
YouTube is testing multiple audio tracks for videos, which users can switch through to find the appropriate one for language or descriptive audio. While useful for producing multilingual content, multiple audio tracks also allow for more readily available descriptive audio tracks for blind or low-vision users. Experts say that making...
RESTON, Va.—Comscore has announced that it is the first measurement provider to deliver deduplicated audience measurement across YouTube's largest platforms (PC, Mobile, and now Connected TV) as well as co-viewers of Connected TV screens. The move marks a significant expansion of Comscore's partnership with Google that was announced in August.
YouTube TV announced that it was adding support for 4K content earlier this year. But not everything is available in 4K, and you won’t get it with the base plan. In fact, you will need to pay a bit more to get 4K content on YouTube TV. So we’re going to show you how exactly you can watch 4K content on YouTube TV, and which channels support it.
Squid Game now sits firmly atop the latest Nielsen streaming rankings, after failing to crack the Top 10 with its first (but only partial) week of release.
For the Week of Sept. 20, the Netflix megahit amassed 1.9 billion minutes viewed across its nine episodes, easily besting all other original streaming series.
The previous week’s champ, Netflix’s Lucifer, slipped to No. 2 with 860 million minutes viewers across 93 total episodes. It was followed by Netflix’s Sex Education (865 million/24 episodes) and Midnight Mass (566 million/7 episodes) and Apple TV+’s Ted Lasso (509 million/20 episodes).

Click here to read the full article. PARIS — “People, especially brands, look for performance 10 minutes after an event or a show, asking what the earned media [value] was. The answer [at that point] is, like, $5,” said YouTube’s head of fashion and beauty Derek Blasberg, speaking at a digital press conference with Alison Bringé, chief marketing officer of data research and insights company Launchmetrics.
The pair was presenting a report on the 60-day, or longtail, impact of video marketing on the media impact value of brands, based on the case study of five brands: Prada, Dior, Pyer Moss, J.W....
Apple TV+ original series "Dickinson" will air for its third and final season in November, and Apple has released a trailer for the end. "Dickinson" was among the first shows to debut to Apple's new streaming service when it launched in November of 2019. The series, which follows young poet Emily Dickinson, will return for a third and final season on November 5.
I don’t remember George Franklin’s 1990 murder trial, one of the nation’s first to hinge almost exclusively on the phenomenon of repressed memory, but I absolutely remember when suddenly every broadcast procedural started having regular plotlines built around repressed memory.
Or maybe I don’t? Maybe I watched a repeat of L.A. Law — probably “I’m Ready for My Closeup, Mr. Markowitz,” from 1992 — and conflated that into recollections of countless similar episodes? Maybe I only read an episode description from that L.A. Law and was able to imagine the rest of the episode?
Memory is a tricky thing, much more so...
Expanded partnership with Google enables advertisers to fully inform their video investment planning across all screens for an accurate view of true reach and frequency. Comscore, a trusted partner for planning, transacting, and evaluating media across platforms, is excited to announce it is the first measurement provider to deliver deduplicated audience measurement across YouTube’s largest platforms (PC, Mobile, and now Connected TV) and including co-viewers of Connected TV screens. The milestone delivers on the significant expansion of Comscore’s partnership with Google announced in August and makes Comscore the first provider to be able to offer advertisers the ability to measure deduplicated reach and frequency with this comprehensive level of coverage, now including the incrementality of YouTube’s impact within media plans.
Netflix and YouTube may be far more dominant than we realize. According to a report from LightShed Partners, Netflix and YouTube combined for 47 percent of “connected TV time spent” in June. That number is just 2% lower than the firm’s last report from 18 months ago. Think about that. Even with a raging pandemic and an explosion of streaming content, those two services are still sucking up half the oxygen in the room.
Connected television (CTV) is a slept-on part of the media mix. They are a gateway to many different types of content, from the traditional broadcasters to digital and social video platforms. Since around 80% of households in the UK have at least one CTV, that provides a number of audience opportunities for advertisers – provided they think about the device in the right way.
It’s been several months since Roku and YouTube TV reached a cease-fire in their dispute over … well, over a few things. But it now looks like the war is heating back up. To recap, Roku in April 2021 first announced that negotiations that would extend YouTube TV’s availability on the Roku platform had broken down. In doing so, it said that “Roku cannot accept Google’s unfair terms as we believe they could harm our users.” Exactly what those disputed terms are has been a little ambiguous. Roku has said it has to do with search results. Google calls any allegations baseless.
YouTube is a name that’s mostly associated with on-demand Internet videos, but it has also become Google’s umbrella brand for its multimedia streaming service. The transition from Google Play Music to YouTube Music wasn’t exactly the smoothest, and some features that may have been considered a staple of free tiers were walled behind subscriptions. That, however, is changing for users … Continue reading
One of Netflix’s newest shows “Squid Game” has become a worldwide sensation. Following its Sept. 17 release, the show became the first Korean drama to top Netflix’s global charts. The show starts off in black and white as Seong Gi-hun talks about a game he played in his childhood known...
The Bad News? No YouTube TV On New TVs Whatsoever!. Roku has been having YouTube problems for a while now, and surprisingly it is not about money. Roku does not take any cut of the revenue from YouTube ads, Google gets 100% of the money so cutting off the growth of the that revenue stream seems an odd decision, nevertheless that was what Google decided.
You Season 3 is now streaming on Netflix. Some plot points (but not major spoilers) discussed below. After Season 2 of You ended abruptly following the big reveal of Love Quinn's (Victoria Pedretti) surprise pregnancy, it was clear the series was headed in a new, albeit uncomfortable direction. After learning of his impending fatherhood, Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley) made what he felt was the life-affirming decision to ensure his relationship with Love worked, no matter what -- including trading in the rough-and-tumble lifestyle he once lived as a book manager in New York and the new life he attempted to weave in Los Angeles. With Season 3, we see the fruits borne of those decisions, and how rotten they can truly be.
There are few things I enjoy more than a good setup. I loved the beginning of Lost, when it was all questions and no attempted explanations. I like the step-ups in Stephen King books, when everything is creepy and weird and insinuating, more than the conclusions when he decides to either burn everything down or randomly introduce a character whose apparent disability is actually magic.
I think the first 45 minutes of War of the Worlds is one of the best things Steven Spielberg has ever directed, and when people mention that they hate the ending, I can usually pretend not...
Netflix has touted the massive success of its “Squid Game” drama for several weeks, and now there are third-party numbers to back up the success of the fall TV hit nobody saw coming.
Nielsen’s latest report on the most viewed streaming TV shows of the week, which was based on data from September 20 to September 26, stated that “Squid Game” was viewed for 1.91 billion minutes, making it the most-viewed show of the week by a considerable margin. Netflix’s “Lucifer,” a consistently popular fantasy series that regularly tops Nielsen’s reports, ranked second, with 860 million minutes viewed.
“Squid Game” has been...
