Pixelization on YouTube TV Channels

Certain channels within the YouTube TV app have recently begun pixelating in bright red, blue, and green colors. In particular it affects our NBC channel. I have tried deleting the YouTube TV app and reinstalling it to no avail.

Re: Pixelization on YouTube TV Channels

Hello @tckimster

Thanks for reaching out to the Roku community!

In some cases, removing the channel and then re-installing it may help. To ensure the process is successful, follow the steps below making sure you restart your Roku device before adding the channel again.

- Remove the channel: Highlight the channel tile on your home screen and press the Star button to open the options menu. Select Remove channel and confirm.
- Restart your Roku device: Restart the device from the settings menu. Go to Settings > System > System restart > Restart.
- Re-install the channel: After your Roku device restarts, visit the Roku Channel Store and add the channel again.
