According to Cord Cutters News, there will be no more ESPN3 on YouTube TV. We later confirmed the news from YouTube TV’s official Reddit account. In August 2019, YouTube TV stopped offering ESPN3 form the ESPN to all its subscribers.
Some might wonder, what is ESPN3? ESPN3 allows users to watch amazing shows like games airing on ABC and great content you don get o ESPN.
The same thing happened to DIRECTV NOW, at launch YouTube TV supported ESPN3. Later on, it got dropped. Now all YouTube subscribers can no longer access it although, the ESPN app is still accessible. The ESPN app still has good stuff in it like ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, etc.
On the bright side, you still get ESPN3 from other internet service providers with no cash involved. For this to work, you’ll have to logout from the ESPN app to gain access to ESPN3 then log back in to watch ESPN, ESPN2, etc.
You can get ESPN3 from so many streaming services using the ESPN app; Like Sling TV (you can also get ESPN3 from the Sling TV app)
How to fix YouTube TV playback error on Roku
Network Connectivity Glitch
The first thing to do is to check for any Network Connectivity Glitch. Connectivity glitch can happen when your device is starting up or your YouTube app. If you’re experiencing this, here’s what to do; Unplug the Roku device and the router/modem, then plug them back in and turn everything ON. That should fix your device if it’s not powering up or when the app is not opening. If that doesn’t work, try uninstalling and reinstalling the app.
Change display settings
Another thing to do is to change display settings. If your playback error refers to an uneven video display, do this. All you have to do is:
Go to your Roku device settings>Display type> select 4K 30Hz TV, 4K 60Hz TV, or 4K HDR 60Hz.
