YouTube went public in 2015 informing customers the app would no longer be supported on older Smart TVs & Devices manufactured prior to 2013 as they were making major changes to their Data API (application program interface).

Unfortunately, these alterations would require more than a mere software upgrade to adapt older products. We are talking major hardware upgrading which is just not going to happen.

We apologize for not having had the hindsight back in 2010 to build our products in preparation for the next few decades but who could have known back then and were those new components even available at the time?
