And that's it. You can remove any channels you know you'll never want to watch. (You also can use the handles on the right to change the order of where they appear in the guide. Just grab and drag.)

Our top equipment picks for YouTube TV

YouTube TV runs really well on pretty much everything — so long as it's not Amazon Fire TV. (Because Amazon doesn't support it at all, because Amazon is fighting with Google.) Here are our top recommendations for YouTube TV.

For Apple lovers

Apple TV 4K

The best box if you're on iOS.

If you're all-in on Apple, Apple TV 4K fits in perfectly with all the specs (including 4K, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos), and it ties in nicely with your iCloud account.

YouTube TV runs great on pretty much everything it runs on. It's faster to load on the more powerful (and expensive) hardware, of course, and that's why Apple TV and NVIDIA Shield TV lead those lists. But you'll also do well with a Roku box or Roku TV.

Additional Equipment

Apple TV isn't the only way to watch YouTube TV. It works great on a computer in a browser, or on a phone or tablet. But for TVs, we'd also recommend:

NVIDIA Shield TV ($199 at Amazon)

The best Android TV box you can buy is not new, but it's still among the best and most powerful pieces of hardware for streaming TV. (And you might well find it on sale.)

Roku Ultra ($89 at Amazon)

Roku's most powerful box has everything you want (except for Dolby Vision), at a price that's almost criminally low.
