Back in October, YouTube announced that it would be rolling out apps for its YouTube TV over-the-top cable TV service on connected devices over “the coming weeks.” But it turns out that two of the biggest living room platforms — Apple TV and Roku — won’t get a YouTube TV app until early 2018, according to a report from CNET.

While the delay is certainly disappointing for users of those devices, Google has managed to succeed in rolling out YouTube TV to most of its other promised platforms, including Chromecast, Xbox One, Android TV, and recent models of Samsung and LG smart TVs.

Along with the Apple TV and Roku apps, which a YouTube representative told CNET would be available sometime in Q1 2018, YouTube TV apps for older Samsung and Sony smart TVs are also in the works. Although like the Apple TV and Roku apps, an exact release date has not been announced.
