Connect your devices to watch YouTube on TV

Connecting to your TV on web using a code will be going away soon. To connect to your TV on web, you'll need to connect over Wi-Fi. Use the Computer instructions below to learn how.

You can connect your phone, tablet, or computer to your Smart TV or other streaming device to watch YouTube on your TV.

If you're connecting with your phone or tablet, make sure you have the YouTube app downloaded. Casting from youtube.com in a mobile web browser is not currently supported.

Notes:
  • Cast  works with any TV device that can support YouTube on TV, not just Chromecast.
  • If you're a YouTube TV member looking to watch YouTube TV on your television, check out the YouTube TV Help Center for more info.
