Waoo! adds YouTube app to TV box during summer

Thursday 1 June 2017 | 20:30 CET | News
Danish ISP Waoo! said it will add YouTube access to its television boxes during the summer, at no extra cost to viewers. Last year, it had said YouTube would be added at the start of 2017. Waoo said this will make watching video in Ultra-HD even more convenient than before. Speaking at Copenhagen's 'Future TV' conference on 31 May, director Jorgen Stensgaard said the barrier between TV and the internet is being dismantled slowly but surely. Almost two thirds of the global internet audience uses YouTube, he added.
