Apple said on Wednesday that it will put Google's YouTube Internet video catalog on television through its Apple TV set-top box.

Beginning in mid-June, Apple TV will wirelessly stream videos directly from YouTube and play them on a user?s widescreen TV.

Apple TV works with iTunes to play users' content -- video, movies, television shows and the like -- wirelessly on a wide-screen television.

Along with the YouTube announcement, Apple said that YouTube members can also log in to their YouTube accounts on Apple TV to view and save videos.

Apple also said it was selling a new Apple TV with a 160 gigabyte hard drive. The drive has four times the storage of its previous TVs for up to 200 hours of video, 36,000 songs, 25,000 photos or a combination of each.

With a wireless, high-speed Internet connection, Apple TV can automatically sync content from one Mac or Windows PC or stream content from as many as five additional computers to a television without wires.

An Apple TV costs $299. The larger model will cost $399, and will be available on Thursday.

But the deal also could bring Apple into the middle of a rancorous copyright battle over television shown on the Web.

MTV Networks owner Viacom Inc. , which is suing YouTube for copyright violation, said it would welcome the chance to license material to Apple.

Viacom sued YouTube in March for $1 billion charging it with "massive intentional copyright infringement" after finding hundreds of thousands of Viacom-owned videos uploaded to the service without its permission.
