    Default Roku 3 to get YouTube Channel

    Apparently it was a performance issue with Roku 2 and why there isn't an official YouTube channel. Supposedly the new chip in version 3 should be able to get it, but if that's the case, why wasn't a YouTube app packaged with the new one?

    While the company isn’t giving any update, I think that based on the new A9 chip inside the Roku 3, an official YouTube channel could come to the Roku 3 shortly.

    Here I thought it was a done deal from your post title.

    I declare shenanigans.

    Roku had YouTube until Google complained. There is a channel right now that does YouTube on Roku, VideoBuzz.
