How To Watch YouTube On Older LG TV Models
If you have an older LG TV Model that doesn’t support the YouTube application, there are a few workarounds for watching YouTube on your television.
Using A Streaming Device Or Gaming Console
One way to stream YouTube on an older LG TV model is to use a streaming device or gaming console.
Here is a short list of options you can use:
- Amazon Fire TV Stick
- Apple TV
- Roku Streaming Stick
- Chromecast with Google TV
- Xbox Series S/X
- Xbox One
- Many more…
Once you have a streaming device, you’ll want to plug it into your LG TV (and wall, if needed) and connect to WiFi.
Then, search the device’s store for YouTube, click Download, and wait for the installation process to complete.
The process will vary slightly depending on which device you’re using.

Using LG SmartShare
Another option is casting from your Android device to your LG TV using SmartShare.
Essentially, LG SmartShare allows you to screen mirror any applications from your Android phone to the television.
Most LG Smart TVs have the SmartShare application preinstalled, so you’ll have to download and install the application onto your Android device.
Like the LG SmartShare method we just covered, Apple AirPlay offers the same functionality for iPhone users.
The main difference between the two is Apple AirPlay comes pre-installed on both your LG TV and iPhone, so you’ll need to check the control centers on each device to active it!
Getting YouTube onto your LG Smart TV is a relatively simple, short process.
Once it’s installed using our instructions above, you’ll be able to stream your favorite movies or shows without any issues.
