Look at post 3387 above. If you can show that the ATV supports DD+, then take a snapshot and post it. Otherwise, listen to what others are saying.

Very disappointed to see that. I hate the current YouTube app on the Roku3. I subscribe to 5 or 6 channels and when I use the app I just want to see what the newest uploads to the channels are. The AppleTV app is great for that. Now my best option is the app on the iPad and use AirPlay.

Kick your older ATV2 to another room, and pick up a cheap ATV3, and you can still use the app as intended. It's only going away on the old models, not the new ones. (And I still think a new ATV4 has to be coming soon)

I still have the old YouTube app on my ATV3, my guess is because I didn't update the OS (I'm running 6.2)

What are the pros and cons of the new version? Does it show ads?

Also what is the current version of iOS? Any new features worth updating?

The new channel does show ads many you can't even skip. I will stick with OneTube on the Fire TV which has a cumbersome interface but has no annoying ads.

As much as I love the ATV, my go to device is the Chromecast for any YouTube content. And with the latest update, I can use my TVs remote to control playback.

My YouTube usage is pretty much limited to watching a single clip that I found as a link on a website (e.g. Facebook, AVSForum, etc.). So, for me, I just use the web interface (Safari on my iPhone and iPad or Foxfire/IE on my laptop). And, if I want to watch the video on my TV, I AirPlay it from my phone.

I follow many steady video producing channels so I find the new ATV3 YouTube app very good for my needs

Yeah, I wasn't getting a video in all my lists that this version will not be supported. I went ahead and updated the iOS, I got the new YouTube app which looks better, but sucks, especially with all the ads.

The good part is that the interface of the ATV3 seems snappier and the 10 sec back /30 sec fwd steps are almost instant now, at least on HBOGO and NHL app (these apps don't buffer like the Youtube app). I don't have Netflix right now, so don't how it works with that

But, before I did that, I tried the YouTube add-on in Kodi on my chromebox. It's better than the old app on ATV3, navigation is the same, but it has contextual menus, channel art and icons and most importantly no ads

Apple need to start upgrading their iTunes movies soon if they're serious about the Apple TV, as VUDU is introducing 4K streaming sometime this year (apparently).

The quality of the iTunes movies (currently) are really good at the moment (imo), but it feels VUDU is winning at the streaming/buying digital movies 'game'.

At the very least they could start doing more movie/tv deals every week, because we're not getting much digital codes anymore from our physical purchases.

New Apple TV yes, announced before fall, no. Cnet as a source..you gotta be kidding. A new TV service being announced maybe, it's the developers conference and that would actually make sense.

It was just one of several websites speculating on the new Apple TV. Doesn't really matter does it?
