I’m currently watching YouTube on my express 4K+ in my hotel. The hotel/dorm function isn’t working, but my phone hotspot is working fine. I watch YouTube virtually every day, using at least one of my Roku players. Roku is NOT blocking YouTube. Google is responsible for the functionality of the YouTube channel, and if it’s not working correctly it’s up to them to fix it.
