Old Apple TV Devices are Losing YouTube App Support This Spring




, , ,

Users streaming YouTube on old Apple TV boxes will have to find another way to watch since the devices are losing support for the YouTube app next month. The 3rd Generation devices released in 2012 will soon no longer be compatible with the YouTube app. Instead, you’ll need to use airplay if you want to stream on your TV.

Here’s the message popping up on Apple TV 3rd Gen user’s screens:

Starting early March, the YouTube app will no longer be available on Apple TV (3rd generation). You can still watch YouTube on Apple TV 4K, Apple TV HD, iPhone, or iPad. With AirPlay, you can also stream YouTube from your iOS device directly to any Apple TV (3rd generation or later).

If you’re still using an old model and looking to upgrade, now is the time to do it before support for YouTube leaves next month. Luckily, the latest Apple TV 4K streaming device is on sale for just $149.99, down from $169.99 for the 32 GB.
