From what i have seen it is a google services issue. I dont have youtube tv to test. It might work in the browser also (I've seen reports it does, with scrolling issues).
Install the following for signing in. YouTube and services are working with these.... If you need the files i can try and upload them.

Google Account Manager v4.4.4-1227136

Google Services Framework v4.4.4-1227136

Google Play Services (AndroidTV) v11.9.51 (836-177350961)

Google Play Store (AndroidTV) v4.6.17

For youtube
YouTube for Android TV (Android TV) 2.02.08

You can just install the old one:

Works for me. No guarantee Google won't mess it up. Follow the simple guide, disable updates.

Oh. Sorry.
I never even thought about that.
It's one thing for Google to block a free service but to charge a subscription, then make it so a significant amount of customers can't access it...its just a really bad decision.
I'd definitely contact YTTV customer support and complain.

Probably not. But I think Fire Tv is the most popular streaming device in the world. If enough people complain they just might rethink things. Or if you're persistent enough...maybe a refund, free month, credit.

Yes this version works perfectly fine on my firestick - you can also cast to the app (app must be open on tv) from your phone if you goto the apps settings and select link with code & do same on your phones YouTube app

I cast because the search function of the tv app doesn't show a keyboard input
