Google To Yank YouTube TV And YouTube From Roku On Dec. 9 Amid Contract Standoff
Google plans to remove two YouTube apps from the Roku store on Dec. 9, as a months-long skirmish between the two companies has resulted in a standoff.

YouTube TV has not been available since April, while the companies have been negotiating a carriage agreement. That said, in a blog post yesterday, Roku said that Google plans to remove its flagship YouTube app as well.

CNBC reports that YouTube TV arrived on Roku in 2018 -- after a noteworthy delay -- in exchange for special access to search data, and prioritized search results for YouTube videos within Roku’s search feature. Roku agreed to both terms, but asked Google not to request any additional data, which the search giant reportedly would not commit to.
