Coming soon to a TV near you: YouTube XL

Yesterday YouTube released YouTube XL: an optimized YouTube UI for the TV screen. While initial reviews were mixed, I believe this is an excellent move on Google's part to counter Hulu. By targeting HTPC and game console installations out there, Google is eager to invading your living room with YouTube XL. Once again, we see that the line between TV screen and PC monitor continues to blur. Before we know it, the "channel surfing" days of none interactive television may be a thing of the past.
