Cant get YouTube TV channel

I am trying to get YouTube TV on my roku 2. The channel is not on list of streaming channels. Do I need a newer Roku? Everything I have read indicates that I should be able to access it on the Roku 2.
Do I have to sign up with YouTube TV first?

Re: Cant get YouTube TV channel

What is the exact model.of your Roku 2? If it's the original Roku 2 (XD or XS, circa 2012) you're out of luck. You may also be out of luck if it's the "old new Roku 2", I believe it came out in 2013).. if it's the 2015 version of the Roku 2 (model 4210), you should be able to use the YouTube channel.

Yeah, for awhile, Roku had a model naming problem. They still do, actually.
Yeah, I got some Rokus.
