YouTube TV works on the browser

I was parked having lunch in my MY and decided to see if YouTube TV would work.

It worked fine...not full screen of course but I was able to browse and play live tv no problem.

You can watch full screen through YouTube app, just have the same account logged in. Scroll down and it will have the live channels. Sometimes I need to verify my location using my phone.
Yes but I wish there was a way to access some basic functions, like opening the glovebox or adjusting the ventilation.
To do so, you have to exit YouTube and go back to the main display. So using the browser to watch YouTube is more practical,
also you can access some specific YouTube like showing the transcript on the side and use the translate function.

Old thread, but maybe someone will see this:

YouTubeTV (via the YouTube App) has stopped working for me. It will show my library, the Home tab & Live tab. But if I try and play anything now, I receive a licensing error.

Anyone else seeing this? It was working fine for me.
I started on thread on this issue several days ago.

Well I'll be darned! Thanks! You actually spoke (assuming email) to YouTube? Didn't think that was possible. :)
No, actually spoke by phone (used the call back process and was called within 2 minutes). He was baffled at first, put me on hold for 3 min, and then came back with the "known issue" response. Of course, there is no telling when they will get it resolved.
