YouTube XL announced for big screens

A recent launch from YouTube sees the video on demand site now catering to those with the smallest screens available, right up to the biggest.

Just as there is a version of YouTube optimised for watching on mobile phones, the company has now launched a version optimised for watching on large screens.

YouTube "XL" gets a new design that sees larger text, simplified navigation and a continuous play feature, which lets you search for a topic on YouTube and then press play once to watch all of the videos sequentially on that topic.

Getting from one video to the next takes just a few clicks, claims YouTube, and the action can be controlled via a Bluetooth-enabled remote control, or in some cases, your mobile phone.

With YouTube's high definition content increasing by day, and internet-enabled televisions and other home cinema devices more and more common, the world's most popular video website wanting to move onto your telly seems a logical step.
