YouTube TV and Roku disagreement worsening; what you need to do  

By all accounts, the contract dispute between Roku and YouTube TV has gotten worse and now there’s a deadline that may affect you. On December 9, Google says it will pull the YouTube app from Roku’s Channel Store. (This is the YouTube app that features untold numbers of user-generated videos, not the YouTube TV app. The TV app was pulled this past May.)

If you have already downloaded both the YouTube TV and YouTube app to your Roku device, you are good to go. Just don’t delete either app because you might not be able to get them back.

The reason to keep both apps on your Roku device is to retain access to YouTube TV … thus preventing you from getting caught in the middle of this dispute.

Both Roku and Google have made claims about the other’s behavior and intentions. You can read for yourself an analysis of the disagreement.

But there may be help for consumers … wait for it … the government may come to your rescue with a bipartisan bill preventing these anti-competitive actions.
