Hi @Teguman,

Thanks for reaching out to the Roku community!

Please be noted that Roku devices automatically set the time zone for your Roku device.

To change the time zone from the main Roku settings, please follow these simple steps:

  1. Press the Home button home button on roku remote on your Roku remote.
  2. Scroll up or down and select Settings.
  3. Select System, and then Time.
  4. Select Time zone.
  5. Choose between Set automatically and Set manually. If you select Set manually, choose your time zone from the list.

For full information on this, you can take a look at this link: How do I change the format of the clock? | Official Roku Support

However, if the issue is only with the channel alone, this is a good indication that there likely an issue within that specific channel that will need to be addressed with an update from the channel publisher. Channels on Roku are created and maintained by each channel publisher. In this case, you'll want to reach out to that channel publisher directly to share your feedback.

Hope this helps! Let us know if you have any other concerns.

Many thanks,
Mary

Having the same issue on TCL Roku TV. My time zone is Eastern,  I have set manually and automatically,  no matter what it says the wrong time in YouTube. The YouTube app seems to be using GMT.

Is your Google account set to the correct time zone? https://accounts.google.com/

Are your YouTube account settings using the correct time zone? (There may not be a separate setting for this, with recent updates to YouTube, but I would still check just in case.)

I use the Roku Premier Box and my YouTube app is 4 hours ahead ( I'm in the eastern time zone). When the clocks go back in the Fall it will be 5 hours ahead. I have no idea how to fix that or if it's just the way it is.

Same issue here, i have my time zone set correctly in both roku settings and on youtube but the roku app loves to show the time 5 hours ahead no matter what, it's either a problem with the youtube roku app itself or with roku because my time zone is correct if i use youtube itself anywhere else
