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

I am too looking for the Youtube TV app, not Youtube.
Let me know if you find a solution.

I sideload the app for the phone but the app could not determine the location.

How can I make the app locate my location?

I installed a version that works on mibox but when I try to play a channel the app crashes.

If you have working version could you give me a link to it?

Working YouTube tv
So I have successfully gotten YouTube tv to work on my fire stick 2.
com.android.vending-4.6.17-80260017-minAPI8.apk

com.google.android.gms_11.9.51_(836-177350961)-11951836_minAPI19(armeabi-v7a)(213,320dpi)_apkmirror.com.apk

google_services_framework_4.4.4-1227136_androidapksbox.apk

google_account_manager_4.4.4-1227136_androidapksbox.apk


Things I've installed different than the thread.
Settings.apk for fire tv
Fake gps app from play store
I have used wireless adb to
settings put secure location_providers_allowed gps

settings put secure location_providers_allowed gps,network

settings put secure mock_location 1

I will write up a full tutorial later today. I have another fitestick to test on, so I can start from beginning.

It's sorta a pain in the ass to get the fake gps coordinates right. I installed the app on my phone, then used the coordinates it read out, and typed them into fake gps using Cletus keyboard. It is important for negative - sign.

Notes are it needs a mouse to navigate some of the app, Cetus play works fine.
Feel free to ask questions.

@rainman74

This thread is is for the YouTube TV service's app. YouTube TV provides paid live TV streaming services to multiple markets within the United States, and is an 'over-the-top' streaming replacement for cable TV subscriptions such as those provided by AT&T/Comcast/etc.

See www . youtube . tv for more info (remove spaces when entering into your browser).

While the naming is similar (and made even more confusing with your replacement app's use of 'TV' in it's title), please don't confuse regular 'YouTube' (which your app is a replacement for) with 'YouTube TV'.

With all this being said, I absolutely appreciate this topic can be confusing for some xda members if you don't live in the US (and aren't aware of the YouTube TV paid streaming service), and especially since the word 'TV' is now being used in the name of the replacement YouTube client.

(Edit - while I'm on a mobile device and can't actually check the apk, I'm presuming it's not the correct YouTube, since the original (and very good) 'Smart YouTube TV' app built by Yuriy Lyskov is a plain YouTube client).
