YouTube Leanback: YouTube That Looks Like TV

July 12, 2010 | Source: Bloomberg BusinessWeek

Google’s new YouTube Leanback serice aims to become a fixture on your television by letting you watch an uninterrupted stream of full-screen YouTube videos in high definition, using your keyboard’s directional arrows and the return key to navigate through the new service.

The beta service decides what to show you based on your YouTube account preferences, and you can use Leanback to watch your YouTube movie rentals obtained through the new YouTube Store.
