In spite of posts to the contrary, THE ISSUE IS NOT RESOLVED and Roku Customer Support is stinky dog poo. I've been a YouTube TV and Roku subscriber for 4 years, and was satisfied. Recently I lost cable internet for a couple hours due to a Xfinity-Comcast outage in my area. After Xfinity restored service, it apparently reset my Roku account to new customer; and YouTube TV and YouTube apps on Roku no longer work - neither app can load to the a mysterious "network connection problem". Both YouTube and YouTubeTV continue to work perfectly on my 5 Apple devices, so it is not a Google account issue, and all other Roku apps work for me. I'm using a Roku 3800X Streaming Stick.
I followed all of the instructions on several Roku Customer Service posts about YouTube issue such as: "Resolved: Channel launch issue - "Can't run channel". DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME! None of the suggestions worked for me, but cost a lot of time.
I spoke to YouTube customer support yesterday (unlike Roku they will actually call you!) and their rep confirmed uninstalling and reinstalling their apps in Roku WILL NOT WORK. He said that YouTube is being blocked by Roku (due to a dispute which has been widely reported). The YouTube rep had no solution - but said that at "some time in the future the problem will be resolved", but also said "YouTube TV will not be back on Roku."
Adios Roku and good riddance! I've unplugged your useless streaming stick from my Samsung TV and ordered an Amazon Fire TV streaming stick (3rd generation).
