YouTube Suddenly Disabled

I have a new Roku player and all my selected channels were working fine for the past month until today.  There is no way to click on YouTube now and, when, I try, Roku freezes up entirely and I can't click on any other channels without going back to Home.  I deleted YouTube and then selected it again but it did not fix the issue.  I also noticed that among the channels there is a "YouTube" and a "YouTube TV".  What is the difference.  Is anybody else experiencing a locked YouTube?  All my other channels are working okay.

Same here. Was able to use the Youtube application as recently as this morning, but only get frozen Roku when I select it.

Hi EVERYONE WITH YOUTUBE FREEZING ISSUES:

1) This is what I did and back to working!!!  I went to my iPhone, downloaded Ruko app.

2) Clicked on Ruko remote control on my phone

3) Clicked on remote mode, then clicked on Star * symbol, to remove YouTube channel 

4) Using my phone still, I searched for Ruko app on Google!  Signed in YouTube on my phone from Google!

AFTER SIGNING THROGH GOOGLE I’VE HAD NO FREEZING!  I HOPE THIS HELPS!
