    For anyone having trouble logging in to Youtube on ATV. Apparently google requires a youtube channel and G+ activated on the account, then ATV logs in no problem.

    I can log in no problem on other devices. Only the Apple TV fails to Log in to Youtube account.

    I believe you have to go to your google account. Go to security and click on apps and websites under account permissions. Then you create a password for the apple TV. I think having to do this has to do with not being able to do 2 step authentication with the apple TV.

    Anyway, this is what worked for me. I'm obviously not 100% certain it will work for you. You may have a different issue than I did.

    Give it a try.
