How do I add YouTube TV to Roku?

I have a Roku Ultra and am considering switching to YouTube TV.  When I try to add YouTube TV channel, I can't find it.

Is it just through YouTube channel?

Is it supported in the states?

 

Thanks,

 

Steve

Re: How do I add YouTube TV to Roku?

Roku and Google are in a carriage dispute over YouTube TV - this has been national news since it started over a month ago, in case you missed it:

For now, the YouTube TV app is not available for new customers/downloads (existing customers retain their apps and can re-download it, depending).

However, Google provided a workaround for those that lose/cant use the YouTube TV app - you can use the YouTube app, and it has a link to YouTube TV within it (lower left in the menu).
