Service Update from YouTube TV

To our members

May 7, 2021

 

An update for our Roku users: Today we’re introducing a feature that gives you a new way to access YouTube TV from within the YouTube app. This update will be available to all YouTube TV members on Roku over the next few days, and we will expand to as many devices as we can over time.

Here is how it works:

  1. Make sure you have the YouTube app downloaded from the Roku Channel Store
  2. From the YouTube app simply click on “Go to YouTube TV” in the left-hand menu of the app
  3. If it’s your first time doing this, you’ll need to sign in to YouTube TV
  4. You can learn more in our Help Center

 

We’re still working to come to an agreement with Roku to ensure continued access to the YouTube TV app for our mutual customers. As of right now, existing YouTube TV members still have access to the YouTube TV app on Roku devices.

We hope that you find this helpful.

We regret to share that, despite our best efforts, we have been unable to reach an agreement with Roku. We continue to offer Roku the opportunity to renew the YouTube TV deal under the existing reasonable terms.

As we post this, you still have access to YouTube TV on Roku devices; however, Roku may choose to remove the YouTube TV app from their devices.

While we continue to work toward an agreement, we want you to know that you can still cast to your Roku device from your mobile device, tablet, or computer by following these simple steps. You can also continue to access YouTube TV using all of the devices listed here.

In light of Roku’s current stance, we encourage you to reach out to their customer support team to request they keep YouTube TV on Roku devices here or tweet @roku.

We are committed to ensuring our members continue to have access to YouTube TV and will continue advocating on behalf of our members.
