Cannot re-download youtube tv channel.

Jump to solution

Longtime roku user and longtime youtube tv subscriber. Youtube tv channel would not load correctly. Kept saying youtube could not run because it could not be re-installed. So deleted app so as to fix like before and re download app. Now app is not shown on any list for re installation. Getting sick and tired of pansy disputes between big money corporations and how they don't care about the customer.

No one knows when Google/YouTube will agree to having the standalone YouTube TV app on Roku again. But, in the meantime, there is a workaround.

Launch the YouTube app. Scroll down to the YouTube TV link on the bottom left. Launch it that way.

Totally agree. I have 5 roku streaming devices. I'm having the same error as you. I hope they get this resolved. It's my most used app.

We are having the same issues with ALL 5 different Roku devices / TV's we have.  After having the "Roku Support Known Don't Contact Us Anymore" issue of the YouTube TV app not working (09/14/2021), I too decided to uninstall the app as a means to a resolution.  What a **bleep** mistake....... After doing so, now there is no YouTube TV app avail to download.  A few hours ago Roku said that ISSUE was "fixed" however after "checking for updates (on ALL 5 devices), none of them reported any updates found to install.  So now I (AND PROBABLY HUNDREDS OF OTHER USERS) can no longer get the **bleep** app at all.  This is all BS from both Roku and Google.  On Amazon now ordering 5 HD 4K FireSticks.

(*** Hey Roku, are you there, "PROBLEM ACTUALLY SOLVED")

Like everyone else, my YouTube tv wouldn't work.   Removed and was going to reinstall and low and behold, no longer available.  Was going to go around it with YouTube, but it doesn't work either.  I'm so tired of this issue for something that should not be an issue.
