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 can't access YouTube tv from Roku. It seems to have started within the last day. When I try to access the channel, it gives error messages concerning licensing. How can this be fixed? Is this a Roku problem or a YouTube problem? It angers me to pay for streaming television and be unable to watch the shows I want to watch.
If you delete your YouTube TV app in order to reinstall in hopes of fixing the licensing issue, it won’t work. The app will disappear from the add channel list because Roku is fighting with Google. As usual, Google wants more money and all the subscribers are left without that channel programming. I’m sick and tired of this garbage. We never got notification and my cable operator never did either. I got blindsided last night and was unable to watch anything.
Roku had said they were allowing devices that already had the YouTube TV add installed and activated would continue to work but the app could not be added. It appears as of today even those users can no longer access YouTube TV. Unless they come to terms with google we will need to get an Amazon Fire stick or Apple TV. Sad.
Following the advice from one of the online experts last night, I tried to delete the app and reinstall to fix the error message. Of course, once deleted, it couldn't be added back, and since I have my Roku units synced, it deleted it from all of them. You can do the work around and use YT app, and YTTV is at the bottom of the menu on the left...just a couple of extra clicks, but its still aggravating that these two are in this urination contest and its the consumers who are being forgotten about.
