Roku Ultra btw.
Same issue for me on my Roku Ultra. Internet speed is 25mb and the other streaming services like Netflix and Hulu work without issue. Going to try Hulu Live TV for a month and see if that's any better.
One thing about YouTube that I have observed compared to Netflix and Amazon. YT will stream at much much higher bitrates than the others. I have seen 4K streams with bitrates higher than 40 Mbps, and even standard 1080 over 20 Mbps. They don't seem to adapt their rates as well as the other sites for slower connections. I haven't tried YT TV, but it's most likely streaming about the same.

It wasn't on a Roku unit, it was the YouTube TV app in my LG TV. The regular YouTube app in it plays most, but not all videos in 60fps (and conversely my new Roku Stick + plays the ones the TV won't play in 60fps, but not the others! I posted separately about that.)
