Note:

  • Remember to disable the autoplay feature if you do not want YouTube to automatically play additional recommended videos after watching a video. Go to Settings> AutoPlay on the YouTube menu of your TV, and uncheck the box next to "Auto Play". l
  • Launch the web browser on your Smart TV and go to the official YouTube website if you do not want to activate the YouTube app itself. This workaround is ideal for people who do not want their smart TVs linked to their Google Accounts.
  • Connect your computer to your HDTV with an HDMI cable adapter if you do not have a video game console or smart TV and want to watch YouTube on your TV. This allows you to watch YouTube videos on your TV using your computer's web browser. 
  • You can buy movies on PC or Mac, iOS, or Android, and then access the content of most current versions of the YouTube app by accessing your library and then "Shopping".
