Saw this on playstation blog and thought some people might be interested ...


Have you ever wanted to just sit on your couch and watch YouTube on your TV? Well, it’s now possible via YouTube for Television, available through your PLAYSTATION 3. Currently in beta, the TV Website provides a streamlined interface that enables you to discover, watch and share YouTube videos on any TV screen through your PS3.
Simply open up the Web browser on the PS3, and enter the following URL: www.youtube.com/tv (note: this link will not work from a PC or Mac, only from a PS3) and hit enter. Now you’re good to go! You’ll notice a new YouTube interface that allows you to watch videos in full-screen. With enlarged text and simplified navigation, it makes watching YouTube on your TV as easy and intuitive as possible. Here’s a helpful video that guides you through the process:

We’re working closely with the YouTube team to make a more PlayStation-centric version of the YouTube TV Website page accessible from the lefthand menu bar (the YouTube button currently takes you to our branded channel on YouTube). So stay tuned for that and in the meantime grab a cold one and sit back to enjoy your favorite videos on the big screen!
Happy watching,
Ginger Kraus

Side note: Look at post 4. It's CAG's own Mana Knight! :)

This is actually pretty cool. Would've been more handy when Youtube used to give my PS3 the fits. But nice just the same. And hey, no ads!

EDIT: No ads OR comments. Is this... Is this heaven?

It's stuff like this that deserves it's own spot in the XMB.

I've always just zoomed in the browser to have the youtube video take up the full screen.
