Activating YouTube In A Few Easy Steps
To get started, you first need to download YouTube on your smart TV. If you have an Android TV, you may already have the app installed on the device, but it might not be the latest version.
In that case, you can update to the latest YouTube version via your TV’s Play Store app. We recommend doing this to avoid any potential problems caused by using an outdated version of YouTube.
Once that’s done, open the YouTube app on your TV and select Sign In.
This will generate a code such as the one shown in the example image below.
Then, using your PC, smartphone, or tablet device, open your preferred browser, and in the URL bar type in: “YouTube.com/activate” and initiate the search.
You will see the same screen as shown in the image above.
You now need to enter the code displayed on your device and then click the Next button.
The next step is to log in using your YouTube account and choose which channel you want to use if you have multiple ones linked to your account.
You will need to confirm the action and grant permission for your devices to link.
Once you have completed these steps, you will see a message from YouTube on your screen saying “Success! Device connected,” with the name of your device displayed under it.
Now you can continue enjoying YouTube on your device as it is successfully linked and activated.
