In order to download the application, you’ll have to sign up for the service on your mobile application or through the YouTube TV website. Then, you’ll have to navigate to the “Apps” section on your TV and locate YouTube TV. Unfortunately, you can’t sign up for YouTube TV through the new smart TV application, but you’ll be able to easily sign in once the app is downloaded.
