If you removed it from your account, there's no way to get it back at this time. Your only option is to use the regular YouTube channel to access YTTV.

I can't believe this dispute is still going on. Almost five months now. I'm beginning to wonder if both sides have just given up and it will never be settled.

Remember how long things went on with HBO Max ? Thr time frame with You tube tv must be close to that period of time,

Youtube TV and Amazon Fire Stick

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.

You can use YouTube TV on a Roku by going to the regular YouTube app and selecting YouTube TV on the bottom of the left menu.

Hmmm. Have to add extra characters to make a post now???

Re: YouTube TV vs Roku negotiations

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.

Re: YouTube TV vs Roku negotiations

@jram17 you do know that you can access YouTube TV through the regular YouTube app, right? You can still get what you are paying for that way.
