Why activate YouTube on a Smart TV?

You can use YouTube without signing in. At no point on any of the devices mentioned- above does YouTube lock users out until they sign in. After you sign in though, you can then access content that you’ve buy e.g., movies, and you can then sync your watch history from an Android device or from the desktop making it simpler to continue watching content.

Conclusion:

The one thing all of the devices given in this guide have in common is that an amazing inconvenient device is used to collaborate with them e.g. a controller or a remote. The YouTube app on some devices provides an option to sign in with your Google account and ignor the whole ‘activation’ process but signing in using a game controller or a remote is boring. Input a code from the display on your desktop is quite easier.
