YouTube TV

Ron sent in above screenshots of a new YouTube service specifically aimed at being watched on TV..., as announced by YouTube. YouTube says the site is available for the PlayStation 3 and the Wii. When you visit it on your computer, you’re redirected to the normal homepage.

However, Ron – who took above screenshots from his computer – explains the following hack to view it anyway (HTML’ified):

  1. Install User Agent Switcher 0.6.11 for FireFox
  2. Set Mozilla/5.0 (PLAYSTATION 3; 2.00) and Opera/9.23 (Nintendo Wii; U; ; 1038-58; Wii Internet Channel/1.0; en)
  3. Go to
  4. Press F11 (FireFox full screen)
  5. Connect your PC to the TV (See how-to videos)

[Thanks Ron of TotLol and WebSonic!]
