Google plans to add YouTube TV access to YouTube app for Roku users

Roku removed the app for Google's YouTube TV streaming service after the contract to carry it expired.

Google has come up with a fix for YouTube TV subscribers who can’t get the app in Roku’s store because of the companies’ standoff.

Last week, Roku removed the app for Google’s streaming service after the contract to carry it expired. 

Now, Google says existing subscribers on Roku devices should be able to access YouTube TV from within the YouTube app “over the next few days.” Once the update is in place, existing members will find a “Go to YouTube TV” prompt in the main YouTube app. 

In the online post, Google said it would expand access to YouTube TV from YouTube apps on more devices. And the company also said, “we’re working with other partners to secure free streaming devices in case YouTube TV members face any access issues on Roku.”
