How to get the best YouTube experience on your TV.

I've been enjoying YouTube content for quite some time now and there's no better way to do that than on a big screen. A little known feature of YouTube is it's laid back UI made for TV that you can access on your desktop browser through .

You navigate the UI with the directional keys on your keyboard along with a couple of shortcuts like "G" for Guide and "S" for Search along with the help of "Enter" to skip ads once you can and F11 for full screen since you are viewing this on your browser.

If you are an active YouTube user with a Google account you can sign in by hitting "Sign in" on the menu and visiting to get a code that you then apply. Apparently this UI made for TV is very similar to the one used on Android TV so you get a similar experience on your Intel Compute Stick or any PC that you have connected to your TV. You can also use your phone as a keyboard while searching if you are connected on the same network.
