TV.YOUTUBE "SERVER CAN'T BE FOUND" WHEN TRYING TO SIGN UP AT WWW.TV.YOUTUBE.COM
[size=150]Proud owner of a ROKU smart TV for a few days. Wanting to sign up for YouTube TV, I searched for it in the search box, loaded the channel, and got a sign in code to be entered at http://www.TV.YOUTUBE.COM/START via computer or smart phone. I don't have a smart phone. When I go to the "START" link on my computer, I get the "SERVER CAN'T BE FOUND" message. My favorite browser is FIREFOX, and I get the same message with EDGE, Chrome, Opera, and Ice Dragon. I have flushed the DNS repeatedly; tried several DNS locations per several Google searches, and deleted all cookies [size=100][size=150]relevant to YouTube [/size]in all browsers to no avail. Through searching for http://www.TV.Youtube.com with Google, I found a foreign language page with that address but when I entered my New Jersey zip code was told that YouTube.TV is not available in my area. Searched for the problem in this forum, found 4 posts that did not help.[/size][/size]
[size=150]I had no problem finding and installing other channels, such as NBC, ABC, and CBS news. [/size]
[size=150]Relatively new computer, Windows 10 64 bit. latest update, no problem with any other website.[/size] [size=150][size=100] [size=85][size=150]I don't know what else to try.[/size][/size][size=120] [size=150] Looking for ideas from the Forum, and thanks in advance.[/size][/size][/size][/size]
Re: TV.YOUTUBE "SERVER CAN'T BE FOUND" WHEN TRYING TO SIGN UP AT WWW.TV.YOUTUBE.COM
Thanks, makaiguy - you got me there! But it was weird. When I clicked on the link in your reply, it was like duplicating the tab. Did it twice. Then, for some reason, I right clicked and opened it in a new page. It took me right to the place where I had to put in the code from the TV. Had to do it twice - the first time I entered it and clicked on "continue" (maybe it was "Next") the circles went round and round fpr at least 5 minutes. Then, behind the circles, was a message that something went wrong. Worked nicely the second time. Out of curiosity, I went back and copied your URL (the same one I had used several times!) and pasted it into my browser. It took me, again, to the page where I have to enter the code.
I truly, truly appreciate your help! [and this time I did not try to adjust the font size! ) ]
