YouTube playback error with error licensing

I was not able to get YouTube TV to come on today. After reading some articles, I went to YouTube and had YouTube Tv at the bottom left. I was able to get it to work after accessing this way. When will the "playback error" about error licensing this video be resolved? I could not find any updates later than May 3, 2021.

Re: YouTube playback error with error licensing

Try:

1) Check for updates:  Settings/System/System updates/Check now - try again

2) Remove YT app, RESTART ROKU TV (Settings/System/Power/System restart/Restart), Reinstall YT app - try again

3) Unplug your Roku TV from AC power for 5-10 minutes - try again
