Thanks for the inquiry.

Have you tried signing out of your account in the Youtube channel, then signing back in with the other account that you wish to switch to?

For more information about that channel's authentication and functionality, you'll want to contact Youtube support directly to inquire further. Many channels on Roku are developed and maintained by the channel provider themselves.

Challenge I'm having is that when I select "add Account" to switch nothing happens. It was able to switch between accounts before by simply selecting the profile pic in the Youtube TV app. Now nothing happens. The extra steps to sign out and sign in every time when switching was avoided before. Was there an update or something?

Thanks

@Caprwapido  This is about YouTube. Not YouTube TV. There is no “add account” when using the YouTube TV channel. There is however switch accounts.
