What you need to know
- Loading a video in the YouTube app on Apple TV is causing some people to see an error message..
- YouTube says that it's something it's aware of and a fix is being worked on.
A number of users are reporting that they are seeing an error message when they try to watch videos via the YouTube app on Apple TV. Thankfully, YouTube says it's aware of the issue and is already working on a fix.
Reported by MacRumors and 9to5Mac, a number of users are being given the "something went wrong" error when trying to watch video on an Apple TV HD and Apple TV 4K. Some users have suggested that deleting the app and reinstalling fixes things, but that doesn't seem to be guaranteed to work.
However, YouTube has at least acknowledged the issue via Twitter, going on to say that a fix is currently being worked on.
Anyone experiencing the same issue and error message should probably try the reinstall trick. But failing that it looks like you're just going to have to wait for YouTube to roll out an update that fixes whatever's wrong. And if you're really lucky it might be something that can be fixed server-side, removing the need for an updated app to be rolled out.
