Youtube TV Not in Channel Store

My Youtube TV did not go on when I repeatedly tried to start the app this evening, so I deleted the Youtube TV app with the intention of reinstalling it. Unfortunately, and unbelievably, Youtube TV is not now available in the Roku Channel Store. It is my understanding that this has arisen over some dispute between Roku and Google. Regardless, if this turns out to be true, I will replace my Rokus and not use the product again. Roku's success has been based upon the recognition of its growing customer base that it puts the customer's user experience ahead of all else. I have repaid Roku's customer-centric philosophy with my loyal support of its business over many years, as have so many other customers. We  all expect that loyalty to continue to be a two-way street.

You can access YouTube TV by opening YouTube.  On the bottom of the list on the left side allows you to open YouTube TV.  Not the best but it works.

Re: Youtube TV Not in Channel Store

Correct. I have done this and appreciate that there is a solution, albeit one that requires a new activation for each screen, which is a lot of extra work for me because I have many screens. That having been said, this is ridiculous and augers badly for Roku, which is no longer a trustworthy company for me.
