Been getting the message on my 50VT25 that youtube will be leaving support in April, I still have Netflix
app and a few others and don't want to add a seperate DVD just for youtube. Is there anything out there
that will plug in the tv's usb and allow me to pickup youtube? I looked at Chrome cast but it seem to only
work from a cellphone app?

No such message on my Panasonic S60. Why the usb port? I also use a Roku2 which I plug into my AVR's HDMI input so I can watch on demand content from FOX, A&E, Showtime and HBO. You can also access Youtube along with hundreds of other steaming channels.

Panasonic is not the only one I see. I received the same message on my Sony Blu-ray player. It says "YouTube app will no longer be available as of 20/4/2015. Sucks because have it in my bedroom and I enjoy falling asleep while watching Youtube video/movies. I need to find a inexpensive replacement for my bedroom.

This is why I would never buy a smart TV (or go for one smart TV over another if the smart features were the only difference.) A 2010 premium TV is already going obsolete...

Instead, get a smart TV box and upgrade that as required to keep up. It'll cost much less, too.

Roku updates their firmware monthly. Mine is nearly 3 years old and although it doesn't have the latest Netflix interface, the channel list keeps growing.

I was thinking of google chromecast because they own youtube and should support the app forever, your right about a premium tv in 2010 should not be loosing apps, we lost ustream and a few others but I didn't miss them like I will youtube.

Hi, Ian! Got the same Youtube ending message on my GT25. No worry for me. I've got a Roku3 and my Oppo 103 has Youtube.

Added a refurb PC to use as a home theater computer to my S60. A $30 video card with HDMI works great. Love my S60. Love the blacks on it. Best buy I think I ever made!
