When will a native YouTubeTV application be available on ROKU?

Jump to solution

Now that there is an agreement (again), when can we expect a native YouTubeTV application to be available.  I am in the process of moving from Frontier to YouTubeTV and just purchased a firestick which works very well.....but I'd like to use my existing roku on my other TV.  The current interface (through the  youtube application) is messy (and I'm being kind)

YouTube staying on Roku!!!

In case you haven't heard, Roku and Google have come to terms.  That means all of the terror and fear that was shoved in people's face was for naught!

Hopefully there will be an equal amount of positivity.

Reports indicate a multiyear deal was reached. What does "multiyear" mean? Two years? three years?. Just wanting to know how long we can rest easy.
