We'll be honest, we had no idea there is a live YouTube section on their site (https://www.youtube.com/live) but indeed there is, so it only makes sense that some of you would want to watch it on your phones. The app YouTube Live by wsoftvn (devs of the excellent easyTube, easyWallpaper and easyHeartRate) has just been released and it is currently free and ad-free to all. Last we checked, free is a good deal and there's not guarantees that it will last. In other words, you may want to grab it now.
Although the selection of "live" shows on YouTube is a little niche (lots of gaming and Arab channels) when you find something you want to watch, YouTube Live works extremely well. We just streamed a news conference over T-Mobile's "4G" HSPA+ pipes (admittedly a much better network than AT&Ts for raw speed) and it went without a hiccup--in fact it looked great. Here are some of the live channels:
- News: CBC Live, MNT, NTV, TOLOnews
- Fashion: Fashion TV, Fashion One, NY Fashion Week
- Sport: Sport Tonight (soccer), Davis Cup (Tennis), WSB (boxing), Wrestling
- Music, Gaming, Chatting, Talk Shows, etc.
It also has a nice layout, showing what is live now, what is coming up soon and what is coming up in the next 7 days. While we wish YouTube's live selection was better, the app itself works great (we just wish the English Al Jazeera as able to stream). So with that, we have to give it a thumbs up for you to try. Even if you don't use it all that often, it's worth the price.
