my youtube tv does not work, when I go to it it is blank.

We're sorry to hear that you're encountering issues with YouTube TV. It's possible that either the app or your device is experiencing some troubles. You can try several things such as: closing and reopening the app, restarting your device, ensuring your device is updated to its latest version, checking your internet connection, or updating the YouTube TV app if there's an outstanding update. If the problem still persists, try uninstalling and reinstalling the YouTube TV app. Hopefully one of these steps should get your YouTube TV back up and running. If none of these work, there could be a temporary issue with YouTube TV itself.

When I try to comment on a video, I click on add comment but no cursor appears and there is no way to add text. Why?

This issue may be due to several reasons. Firstly, ensure that you are signed in to your YouTube account, as you need to be logged in to comment on videos. Secondly, it could be an issue with your web browser. Try refreshing the page, clearing your browser's cache and cookies, or using a different browser. Sometimes, comment functionality can be temporarily disabled due to ongoing updates or maintenance. Lastly, the owner of the video may have turned off the comment feature for that specific video. If none of these solutions work, there could be an issue with the YouTube platform itself, which they usually resolve in due course.

Uninstall the You Tube app from my Android phone when the Uninstall option is missing?

If you're unable to find the uninstall option for the YouTube app on your Android phone, it could be because the app is a part of the device's system apps. You can only disable system apps, not delete them. To disable the YouTube app, go to Settings > Apps > YouTube. Here, you should find the 'Disable' option. Remember, disabling the YouTube app will revert it to the original version that came with your phone and stop further updates. All your data in the app will be saved.

I paid for no commercials and now I cannot Fast-forward. Help

When you subscribe to YouTube Premium, you get an ad-free experience but the ability to fast-forward is not affected. If you're unable to fast-forward videos, it might suggest a problem with your browser or app. Try restarting the app or your device, clearing your cache and cookies, or try updating your app or browser to the latest version. If you're using a smart TV, the fast-forward feature can sometimes vary depending on the model of your TV. Rest assured, YouTube Premium does not limit the ability to fast-forward videos.

Why does my YouTube tell me my preview has ended in my bedroom but not my living room.

Your YouTube viewing experience can be influenced by a variety of factors, including the device you're using, your location, and your network connection. The message about a preview ending generally refers to YouTube's paid content and could appear on a device or location where you're not signed into your YouTube account with an active subscription. Ensuring you're logged into the same account on all devices, as well as checking your internet connectivity, can help address this issue. If the problem persists, it might be worth checking if your devices need any updates.
