YouTube TV’s PS4 App Needs to Be Reinstalled

PlayStation 4 Large

Do you use YouTube TV on the PlayStation 4? You may have noticed a warning asking you to reinstall the app. This is due to a bug that prevented YouTube TV’s app for the PS4 from updating.

Because of this, YouTube TV is asking PlayStation 4 owners to uninstall and reinstall the app. This is the only way YouTube can fix the issue. If you received the warning, you should uninstall and reinstall the app.

YouTube TV is the first non-Sony live TV streaming service to work on the PlayStation Vue. With this being a fully new system to support, issues are likely to arise from time to time.

Google reportedly bid to be the first non-PlayStation Vue live TV streaming service on the PlayStation Vue. It is unknown how long this exclusive deal is good for. Hopefully, cord cutters will soon have other live TV streaming options for the PlayStation 4.
