YouTube TV results not included in Roku search

I am subscribed to the YouTube TV channel and I have the app loaded on my Roku Ultra, but when I use the Roku voice search, nothing from YouTube TV is included in the search results. #YouTube TV

Re: YouTube TV results not included in Roku search

@Jfrailing 

Thanks for the inquiry.

Please be aware that channels decide whether or not to include their content in Roku global search results. Roku does not limit this. If a channel chooses not to include their content in Search, they will not appear as an option to watch. You would need to contact the specific channel provider directly to inquire further, and share any feedback.

You can reach Youtube TV support here: https://support.google.com/youtubetv/?hl=en#topic=7071745


Thanks,

Re: YouTube TV results not included in Roku search

I dont have YoutubeTV.

But with the regular Youtube app.......

I held down the mic button and said "Youtube Search blah blah"

and it worked.

 

Roku Ultra ---Ethernet rules---

From now on if people dont upvote me and do as I say I will consider holding my breath and selling my Roku's.

Thanks for the tip. Unfortunately that did not work for YouTube TV.
