HP has announced it is making YouTube video content available for people to view through its HP MediaSmart connected entertainment products, including the soon-to-be-released MediaSmart Connect digital media receiver and the high-definition MediaSmart TV.

People will be able to watch and share full-screen videos on their HDTVs and to create multiple playlists from anywhere they watch TV. Viewers can log into their YouTube accounts using the remote control and can then start watching videos on their HP MediaSmart products.

"With the addition of YouTube to the HP MediaSmart platform, consumers will have even more ways to enjoy the latest entertainment on the Internet", said Carlos Montalvo, vice president of marketing and services, Connected Entertainment Business, HP.

"Bringing YouTube to HP MediaSmart products will let users browse and select a series of videos, then relax and enjoy the show on their big screens."
