Google has seemed to have caught wind about the situation and has forced them to remove the YouTube channel from their service and now it seems that new users aren’t able to access the channel anymore whereas folks who’ve been using it all this while can still access the YouTube service. The FAQ has even been updated to display:
“At the request of YouTube, this private channel is no longer available on Roku. To remove the channel, please go to “My Channels” in the Channel Store.”
While Roku has mentioned that they’re in the midst of discussions about getting the streaming video service back, there’s no official word of what’s going to happen yet. So for those of you who can still access YouTube on Roku – enjoy it while you can, you might not get the chance to again in the future.
