    I meant just put your email address in the username field. It will work.

    Well that is strange. My email address works just fine. In fact you CAN'T log in with a username anymore; Not since Google changed the whole login system a while ago.

    When was the last time you updated your AppleTV's firmware?

    do you have 2 step authentication enabled on your google account?
    if you do then you will need to create an application specific password for the appletv.

    Just a friendly note, don't reveal your email addy on the internet :p
    You could just edit your username out and leave the @icloud.com part

    I certainly understand your frustration with Google+. I haven't posted a single comment on YouTube since they integrated it.

    Honestly, if you have a device that can do it, it's best to to just AirPlay YouTube. The iOS app is much better than the one integrated into Apple TV. (you may also be able to find a plug-in for your browser that'll allow it to airplay YouTube videos)

    I didnt thought of that mate... thanks a lot. Nice workaround solution :)

    If it wasnt for youtube channel subscription reasons i would have permanently deleted my g.account.

    These days your Google account IS your YouTube account.
