There once was a time when Roku owners had access to an official YouTube app for their enjoyment of cat videos. Suddenly, the app was pulled and was no longer available. Some Roku users were “grandfathered” in and were able to keep their YouTube app as long as they didn’t uninstall it. Others would have to seek third-party solutions, like VideoBuzz or Plex. Well, those days are gone, as the Roku 3 now has an official YouTube app available for download again.
Just wander on over to the Roku Channel Store to partake in all the YouTube glory. Unfortunately, the channel is only available Roku 3 users at this time. Roku may bring the channel to its earlier devices soon though.
