I really need to get this working as I can't afford IPTV or any live TV substription right now. Is their any possible way I can get this working? I'm one of the lucky few that live in an area that YouTube TV covers and I'm testing out their 1 month trial. Right now theirs not much options in reguarding to using it on anything other than a phone/tablet.

I've tried side loading YouTube TV onto my fire stick and I have google services side loaded using this guide from AFTVNews (sorry I can't link as I've not met forum requirments) as well but it's telling me I need to update my google services in order to use the app.

Here are the Gapps I've successfully sideloaded:
  • com.google.android.gsf.login v4.4.4-1215936.apk
  • com.google.android.gms v8.7.03.apk
  • com.android.vending v6.0.2.apk
If anyone can tell me which one I need to update specifically for the Fire TV/YouTube TV app is so much appreciated!

I would like also to know. I have an older FireTV that has all Amazon updates blocked so it wont update Youtube app. Is there a way to either download and sideload it or update just the app from the Play store?

I was able to side load the new Android TV app for You Tube TV. I get the new interface, but cannot play anything. When I click on a program it boots me back to the launcher.

It wont let me edit the previous post.

Ok after looking around i found this helped me to get to run. I have not signed in or clicked on start trial yet. Short on time today..

1. get play services and store via this xda thread
https://forum.xda-developers.com/fir...rvice-t3672181
install both.
I installed these versions
Android TV) 8.0.28.R-xhdpi [8] [PR] 163004339 (320dpi) (Android 5.0+).
Google Play services (Android TV) 11.7.44 (836-173432861) .


2. install the youtube tv apk
https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google...-apk-download/

YouTube TV - Watch & Record Live TV (Android TV) 1.04.05 (arm64) Version: 1.04.05 (10405330) arm64
Package: com.google.android.youtube.tvunplugged

I hope this works... If not I will probably load the fake gps apk and see.
will report back tonight after errands

Got all 3 installed and YouTubeTV launches without error but i'm stuck there. It seems there is no way to add my google account so the setup does not complete. I cannot get the login field to accept text input.

I was able to get a step further by logging in, but when you go to select a show or channel to watch you get booted from the app and back to the Fire TV UI.

So, ads play but as soon as the ad is over it crashes. Could this be something Google is doing?
