youtube tv will not launch

I just purchased  a Roku Express 4k +.  All channels that I have launch and play fine except youtube tv.  I get a message that the channel did not launch, Please try again later.  This same thing happened with my previous Roku.  I have tried all the recommended fixes to no avail.  Turn on and off the roku devise, restart router, remove and reload channel, update settings etc.  HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!! This has been going on for several weeks and I cannot get any local channels.  I'm paying over $60/mo for youtube tv.

Re: youtube tv will not launch


Thanks for the post.

Try removing the channel from the Roku home screen by navigating to the channel tile, pressing the * key on your remote and choosing 'Remove channel'. Then restart your device from Settings>System>System restart. Once your player starts up again, add the channel back once more, specifically in this order.

Does this clear up the issue you are seeing? Please keep us posted and we will be able to assist you further.
