Google announces YouTube TV service is now available on select Android tablets
YouTube TV service has been expanding in many US cities in the last couple of months. However, the Google's service was not available on Android tablets until recently.

Today, the Mountain View company announced YouTube TV comes to bigger Android screens. Unfortunately, Google doesn't mention which are the Android tablets that now support YouTube TV, but we do know for sure that in order for the mobile app to work it requires Android 5.0 Lollipop or higher.

YouTube TV service costs $35 per month but comes with up to 6 accounts per household. It allows subscribers to simultaneously record live sports, popular shows, series, news, events, movies and TV episodes without DVR storage limits. However, keep in mind that each recording will only be stored for 9 months.

More importantly, Google's streaming service can be tried for free and those who subscribe can cancel anytime if they change their minds. Make sure you check the list of US cities where Google has already enabled YouTube TV service before trying to subscribe.

Samsung is still peddling off their Android tablets. Every carrier seems to have a deal in place to add one on top of your phone service.

Samsung, LG, Lenovo, Asus, Haewei, and probably a few other name brands still make them. It seems Google, Moto, Sony, HTC, Dell, HP, and many others gave up on the market. I still find them useful, just little reason to upgrade or get a new one.
