Trying to add back Youtube TV after it was accidentally deleted

I accidentally deleted Youtube TV from my Roku.  I can't seem to find it to add it back.  How do I add it back?  I am paying for Youtube TV thru Verizon Fios.

Re: Trying to add back Youtube TV after it was accidentally deleted

You cannot install the YouTube TV channel at this time. There is a disagreement between Roku and Google. However, you can access YTTV within the regular YouTube channel. Move to the menus on the left, and at the very bottom is a link to YTTV.

Has anyone tried installing it on a new device (during initial setup) on an account where you currently have YouTube TV running as legacy install on older devices prior to the shut off? Have heard it can be done.

Re: Trying to add back Youtube TV after it was accidentally deleted

Has anyone tried installing it during initial setup on a new Roku device if you have it running already on older (before the ban) devices on your account? During the automatic part where you existing apps are put on the new device during setup. Have heard this may work, but until then do not want to buy a device when this is what I use my older ones for.

Thanks

Yes, others have added a new device to an account that had YTTV and it was installed on the new device. Just never remove the channel from any device or it's removed from all devices on that account.

Re: Trying to add back Youtube TV after it was accidentally deleted

Thanks! This brings up an associated question (2) please.... if you have a device you accidentally removed it from, could you completely reset this device and then try setup like it was a new device? And your comment seemed to indicate if you remove it from one of your devices, it is then removed from all others? I may have misunderstood your reply.

Thanks again!!!!

Yes, removing a channel from one device removes it from the user account, and is automatically removed from all devices linked to that account. And it can happen within minutes, not waiting for the next auto refresh event.
