Re: Youtube TV for RokuSE

I'm not familiar with any model called the SE. Can you list the actual model number? There was a Roku SD (model N1050) way back in 2009. but that is no longer supported, and isn't capable of installing/using the newer channels, such as YouTubeTV.

Re: Youtube TV for RokuSE

Per Wikipedia, the SE (2710) was a 2013 unit, basically an LT with support for 1080p resolution added.  It is slow and underpowered by today's standards.

Some channel apps, written after these older slower units were replaced with more capable ones, will not run on the older units.  In most cases they will not even load on the older units and may not even show up in the Streaming channel search on them.   As a quick check, if Netflix does not offer you a choice of which Netflix channel to use, you have an older unit that will not run some of the newer channel offerings.

Youtube TV, being a relatively recent addition, probably falls in this category.

Ah, found it. It was also called the Roku 1. As mentioned, that player was released Sept 2013. It is considered a legacy player, and no longer supported by Roku. And that is likely why YouTube TV isn't available on it. Unfortunately, it's time for an upgrade.
