YouTube coming to Apple TV

Apple has announced that YouTube is coming to AppleTV. Beginning in mid-June, Apple TV will wirelessly stream videos directly from YouTube and play them on a user’s widescreen TV. Using Apple TV’s elegant interface and simple Apple Remote, viewers can easily browse, find and watch free videos from YouTube in the comfort of their living room. You can see how it works on the AppleTV section of Apple’s web site.

The upgrade will be done via a free software update in mid-June.

Apple also announced that it will start offering a 160GB version of the AppleTV, starting tomorrow for US$399. The original version with a 40GB hard drive will remain on sale for US$299.
