Re: issues with youtube app on roku tv

Hi @hahahaha

Thanks for the post.

If you haven't tried yet, you can remove YouTube then re-install it. To ensure the process is successful, make sure to restart your device before adding the channel back in. We would recommend doing this from the Settings menu by navigating to Settings System System restart > Restart.

For detailed instructions, refer to this Support link: How do I resolve channel playback issues?

Let us know if there's any difference after.


All the best,
Kariza
