Youtube TV app for Samsung Smart TVs has been released.

https://news.samsung.com/us/samsung-smart-tvs-youtube-tv-app/

This states it is for 2016, 2017 models.  Is Samsung going to release app for earlier TVs?  I purchased my TV in 2016.  Could not upgrade to app.  Turns out my model UN32J5205AFXZA was apparently made in 2015.

How can this query be marked as solved?  The question is: where is the YouTube TV app for "older" Samsung smart tvs?  "I don't know" is not a solution.

The YouTube TV developers have made the decision not to provide an app for these televisions. They have movet from the Flash platform to the HTML5 platform.

To solve this, I just picked up a Roku on Amazon.

 

Problem solved and it works better than a chromecast.

This is not solved. Many of us have elected to leave cable and satellite tv. YouTube TV is the best option at present. Why won’t our pre 2016 smart tv download that app?

This isn't a solution, it is just an excuse
