Fired up the old AppleTV today and noticed that YouTube was dropped. Hoping that the new one I just ordered has it.

Story from February: [www.macrumors.com]

"YouTube is planning to stop supporting its YouTube app on the third-generation Apple TV models, where YouTube has long been available as a channel option."

If you mean you ordered one of the new Apple TV 4K, or at least an AppleTV HD; yes, it will have YouTube.



(BTW, it's spelled < y'all >.)

I believe they dropped YouTube TV but not regular ol' YouTube. Dumb name confusion, I know, but when "Playstation TV" is bar you're trying to hurdle...

I have a 3rd Gen ATV just sitting around, sounds like I might as well get rid of it. I will say it handled my iTunes Movie and Show library better than my 4th Gen.

What is the difference between the two?

Is one paid and the other free?

YouTube is the YouTube you probably know from your web browser.

YouTube TV is a paid streaming service for live programming with broadcast and cable channels and DVR functionality.
