Current YouTube TV customer considering new Roku device
I am a current YouTube TV customer who uses Roku devices for streaming. I know that existing YouTube customers will be able to continue accessing programming via Roku devices, but one of my devices appears to be going bad and I want to replace it. However, if I do replace it, will I still be able to access YouTube TV? My understanding is that no new customers will be able to download YouTube or YouTube TV, but will I be able to download as an existing customer? I've not seen anything anywhere that addresses current YouTube and Roku users who change or upgrade Roku devices.
I do not think you will be able to add YoutubeTV to a new Roku device until the dispute is over. Even as an existing customer, if you remove it from an existing device, you are unable to reinstall it back to that device, so I would assume that would extend to new install on a new device as well.
However, for now, you can still access YoutubeTV through the regular Youtube Channel. (lower left corner, there is a YoutubeTV icon). As such, worse come to worse, you can still access YoutubeTV in this manner on a new Roku device.

Re: Current YouTube TV customer considering new Roku device
If you link a new Roku device to your existing account that already has Youtube TV it should be installed automatically along with all the other channels already on devices linked to the existing account.
