Help & troubleshooting for channels on your Roku device, including adding/removing channels, logging in to, authenticating, or activating a channel, channel-specific playback issues, assistance contacting channel publishers to report issues, and adjusting channel-specific settings.
I read if an agreement is not reached between Roku and Google by Dec 9th, YouTube will not be able to be added to new accounts. I have a Roku that already has YouTube on it. It states on the following page.
"If you use your existing Roku account, streaming channels you have added to the Roku devices already linked to your account will be downloaded and installed on the new device automatically."
If YouTube is removed and I buy a Roku after that and use the existing account on first device where it is already installed, will YouTube still be able to be downloaded and installed on the second device automatically since I downloaded it to a device before Dec 9th or does it not matter if you have it already installed on another device?
I believe you are in the clear. I read somewhere about this in the past. I apologize for the vagueness but as I recall, the person said that their new Roku device downloaded the "unavailable" app from another Roku device on the network. I am not familiar with Roku devices doing this so I can't be certain.
Yeah me too. Contrary to popular belief, theories are not fact. I have never been in this situation and have never seen it myself so for me it stays in the Theory Camp.
I have a feeling that even if they don't come to terms by Dec 9th that they will in the near future. I am going to use that time to discover all the other content within the Roku-verse. If it goes on for more than three months then I might start looking into how to get around this.
