I think you mean you cannot user your Roku to access YouTubeTV, as regular YouTube is still available on Roku.

The carriage agreement between Google (owner of YouTube and YouTubeTV) and Roku regarding carriage of the YouTubeTV app on Roku has expired. Google is demanding Roku turn over users' search requests made through Roku to Google and also that Roku make changes to Roku operating software to accommodate Google desires. To date Roku considers these demands to be unacceptable and an agreement has not been reached.

Meanwhile, Google has added the ability to access YouTubeTV as an option in the regular YouTube app, which IS available on Roku. Sounds to me that Google is willing to forgo the same conditions that are blocking an agreement for YouTubeTV when accessing via YouTube.  Doesn't make sense to me.

Roku Family Sharing plan? Don't know of anything by that name. Apple and YouTubeTV have sharing plans.

There's no such thing. Roku does not have subscriptions to anything. You can subscribe to different providers through The Roku Channel, but Roku themselves do not offer anything that requires a payment or subscription. You might have stumbled across some scam site claiming something that doesn't exist, or you're referring to something within a specific channel that has nothing to do with Roku.
