Apple TVApple today announced that it‚Äôs it’s updating Apple TV to bring YouTube to the living room.

Beginning in mid-June, Apple TV will be able to wirelessly stream videos directly from YouTube and play them on a user’s widescreen TV. Viiewers will be able to browse, find and watch free videos from YouTube directly using Apple TV.

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

Hackers actually had added YouTube support to Apple TV previously, but Apple’s announcement will bring this option to mainstream Apple TV users.

Thousands of the most current and popular YouTube videos will be available on Apple TV at launch in mid-June, with YouTube adding thousands more each week until the full YouTube catalog is available this fall. YouTube members will be able to log-in to their YouTube accounts on Apple TV to view and save their favorite videos.
