Re: YouTube won't launch

Hi @pmorse,

Thanks for posting in the Roku Community!

We recommend contacting Youtube TV directly to follow up for more help. They’ll be able to best assist with any issues and functionality inquiries. Many channels on Roku are developed and maintained by the channel provider themselves. 

You can reach them here:

Many thanks,

Re: YouTube won't launch

I bought the roku devices to stream youtube and youtube tv now that I cannot view these channels I may just have to get rid of my roku devices. NOT happy about this dispute you have with Google, sort it out like adults and leave us views alone.

1) Change your Theme to the Roku Default (Settings/Theme/Restore default theme) - try again

2) Change your Screensaver to a Roku clock (Settings/Theme/Screensavers) - try again

3) Check for updates (Settings/System/System updates/Check now) - try again

4) Remove YT app, RESTART ROKU (Settings/System/System restart), Add YT app - try again

5) Network connection reset (Settings/System/Advanced system settings) - try again

6) Factory reset (Settings/System/Advanced system settings) <--- last resort
