YouTube TV: Millennials will love TV on their phones, trust us!

YouTube TV is also available to watch on laptop and desktop computers, which for many young people equates to the biggest screen in the house.

But at launch, YouTube TV doesn't have support for other streaming devices like Roku or Amazon Fire TV, even though those products are more popular than Chromecast. According to the most recent data from researcher Parks Associates, Roku was the most-purchased line of streaming media players in the US, with a 30 percent share. Amazon's devices just beat out Chromecast, with a 22 percent of sales compared with Chromecast's 21 percent. Apple TV followed at 20 percent.

When CNET asked why YouTube TV is emphasizing mobile even though consumer behavior seems to go the other way, YouTube said that more device support was coming.
