Definitely needed. Had a Sony Blu-Ray player that could once run YouTube, but then Sony refused to update it to run on YouTubes latest standards. So I need a replacement device.

Is it possible for Telus to add an Youtube App to Optik TV?

I imagine Telus is working on it. Smiley Happy Would be interesting.

I know this is about a month mate, but if you have the new 4K boxes, they now can run YouTube. Just push the apps button on your remote and it’s right there.

Hey all.

 

@RyDawg is correct on that. It wasn't simple (what is?) but it was a popular ask and our product teams were finally able to make it happen based, in no small part, on that feedback. Check out YouTube on Optik.

 

Thanks for the suggestion, @morfao

You don't actually require 4K service to have a 4K box. Give one of our agents a call or online chat and see what they can do to help.
