Did your YouTube TV just start to show a message that “this video has been removed for violating YouTube’s Terms of Service?” You are not alone, as Google has confirmed the glitch and that they are busy working on it. This glitch is not impacting all local ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC affiliates but is hitting locals all over the United States.

Update: Google has posted that the issue has been fixed and all locals should now be working again.

Right now, it seems that the issue is only hitting select local channels with no clear pattern of what channels are being impacted by the issue. For now, sadly, there is nothing you can do to fix the issue but wait for the issue to be fixed.

Google has confirmed that they are aware of the issue and are working on a fix. A spokesman for Google wasn’t immediately available to comment on when the problem will be resolved.

The warning message about violating terms of service has left some Cord Cutters News readers worried that they did something wrong. The good news is that the warning message is about the channel and not anything you did. Also, Google says this bug will be fixed soon.

Cord Cutters News will post updates as we learn more about this YouTube TV bug.
