How to Activate YouTube on a Samsung Smart TV
If your Samsung Smart TV is experiencing difficulties with YouTube, there are a few steps that may help to solve it. First, verify whether or not it can run the YouTube app; older than 2011 Samsung models may no longer support it, although screencasting may still allow for streaming videos directly onto the television screen.
Try restarting your TV by unplugging all power sources for two to three minutes and turning it back on – this should reset its network settings and perhaps fix your YouTube app problems.
Finally, you could also try switching WiFi networks and browsers on your TV to see if that helps determine whether there is an issue with either of them or any other potential causes that could cause YouTube app to stop functioning correctly.
Step one of becoming an effective YouTube marketer is optimizing your video’s metadata, such as titles, descriptions, tags and categories. These attributes enable viewers to locate your content when searching the platform – make sure to include relevant keywords as well as general and niche terms!
YouTube also makes it possible for you to add subtitles and closed captions to your videos, making them accessible for viewers who may be hard of hearing or deaf, while helping make sure that all YouTube users can access them.

Activating YouTube TV on a Roku
YouTube TV is an easy and cost-effective way to stream all your favorite shows on a Roku device, featuring over 80 channels that you can choose from and cancel any time. To activate YouTube TV on Roku devices, follow these steps.
To start streaming on a Roku device, ensure it is connected to your Wi-Fi network. If your connection seems slow, try restarting your router/modem, repositioning hardware on your network or making other adjustments that could improve its speed.
Roku users streaming YouTube content have fallen prey to an elaborate scam being perpetrated by fraudsters using Roku. Scammers trick users into signing up for a fictitious YouTube account before charging a fee against either their credit or bank account to activate it and watch videos again as claimed. Mashable has identified this scheme which would not have been possible without help from Google – the parent company of YouTube.
Google recently unveiled a feature called “Connect” that enables you to remotely control an Android TV using only your phone – no need for shared Wi-Fi networks!
To use it, launch the YouTube app on both devices and sign in with your account. Your TV screen will provide a code which needs to be entered on your mobile phone in order to link them together.
Once linked, all your videos can be easily accessed from any device. On iPhone, iPad or Mac simply tap any video to bring up its controls before selecting the casting icon (a rectangle with three curved lines in its lower-left corner) at the top of your screen to cast to Chromecasts and AirPlay devices – once your TV is found just select that and start streaming! Alternatively you could activate Ad Free YouTube TV with Brave Browser; its free web browser automatically blocks YouTube ads!
