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.
Thank you Roku for shutting off Youtube TV from my Roku Tv's..... I am soooo thankful to have had to spend money to purchase an Amazon Fire Stick to be able to watch Youtube TV. The Amazon Fire Stick works great.
I was having trouble with YouTubeTV hanging up during ads, so I decided to remove the app and reload it. Now the app is unavailable to reload and I have to go through regular YouTube to get to TV. Very annoying! I'm sure this was done intentionally by ROKU, IE I'll take my ball and go home approach to YouTube. I'm beginning to think that the freeze ups in the app were also intentionally done by ROKU. If this doesn't get resolved soon, I'll take my ball and go home and order a Chromecast device. Inconveniencing customers is not the right way to resolve issues.
@Brewboy53 If you look further back and see the reasoning behind Roku's disagreement with Google, they are claiming to support user privacy and protection. Based on what Google has done elsewhere, that has some merit.

I have 4 Rokus. Just bought another before I became aware of this roku vs youtubetv fight! Roku removed my youtubetv app (Because I sure didn't)!! Time to fire both! Will be returning my new Roku and cancelling youtubetv. Not gonna contribute to money hungry tactics!!
