Since last week, Youtube app running on my Roku TV does NOT allow me to watch what youtube considers "restricted videos" because of age. Before, I was able to watch any video using the Youtube Roku app, but now I am not able to. I can't only watch such videos using my PC. Note that this is also happening with my android devices, say Amazon Fire TV stick! I'm 68 years old, and I know what I want to watch or not. What the heck is Roku doing? Is Roku now being owned by Donald Trump?
A very unsatisfied customer,
It has nothing to do with Roku, Inc. or the Roku app. A lot of people have complained about this since Google made the changes to accounts. Essentially everyone has two accounts. One is your Google account, which apparently will restrict videos. The other is your Youtube account that has all your likes, subscriptions, playlists, etc.
There are two things to try:
First, make sure your birth date is in your Google profile.
The second is to log out of the Youtube app and log back in ensuring that you select the correct account.
