Currently, there's several ways to watch YouTube on your living room TV: smart apps, external media devices like the PlayStation 3 and even connecting your computer (or tablet) to your HDTV set through a conversion cable.

But wouldn't it be a lot easier if you could simply push videos to your TV straight from your tablet or phone?

Google's already ahead of the curve, as they previously implemented video pairing within YouTube just last year, allowing people to send content from the mobile app to other devices, with smartphones and tablets acting as the remote.

But now, that feature's expanding.

As recently posted on the official YouTube blog, HDTV manufacturers Bang & Olufsen, LG, Panasonic and Sony will be adopting one-button pairing compatibility as a standard feature for their products, with more companies like Samsung and Vizio doing the same later this year.

HDTV sets compatible with YouTube on Android's pairing technology will be shown at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) next week, with some models showing off the unique TV interface revealed last November.
