YouTube TV not loading up

My YouTube Tv won’t completely load. I get the logo and a spinning circle. I have checked for updates and I am up to date. Any other suggestions?

Don't remove it, or you may not get it back.

You may want to reboot your Roku device and see if that makes a difference.

Alternately, you can access YouTube TV within the YouTube app. Scroll down to the bottom of the menu on the left and use the YouTube TV link there. That gets you running until the glitch resolves.

Can’t run channel , not enough space

I try to turn on YouTube tv and it says can’t run channel because there isn’t enough space so I should remove one or more channels. Ok, no problem, I have channels I don’t watch. So, I do that, get rid of maybe 5 or so and it still won’t run YouTube tv, or a couple other channels either. I decide to reinstall YouTube tv, big mistake, because when I go to reinstall after removing, ITS NO LONGER IN THE CHANNEL LINEUP. **bleep**. YouTube is, so I download that, try to open it, and get the same can’t run channel message….. any ideas?

Thanks for the post.

As @DBDukes mentioned, you can access YouTube TV within the YouTube app now by scrolling down to the bottom of the menu on the left hand side and then selecting YouTube TV.


Thanks,

Re: Can’t run channel , not enough space

Same thing is happening with my YouTube.  I have deleted unused channels, but it still says there isn't enough space.  What do I do now?

Thanks for the post.

Can you please provide more information about the issue you are experiencing? What Roku model device are you using? How many channels do you still have on your Roku device? After removing the unused channels, did you make sure to restart your Roku device before trying to adding the Youtube channel?

With more detailed information, we will be able to assist you further.


Thanks,

@Shaynesherman

Thanks for the post.

Can you please specify the issue you are experiencing? What Roku model device are you using? What channel are you trying to access when you see this issue occur? How many channels do you currently have on your Roku device? Have you tried removing any unused channels, restarting your Roku device, then re-adding the channel you are trying to access to see if the issue is still occurring?

Please keep us posted what you find out.


Thanks,
Danny

Re: Can’t run channel , not enough space

Mine is doing this as well. It is only happening with YouTubeTV. I have deleted several unused channels, unadded it and readded it, but it’s still giving me this message. I’ve played it for about a year and a half before this with no issues. I got a brand new version of Roku about a year and a half ago.
