YouTube App on Samsung Smart TVs

In November 2017, a class-action lawsuit was filed against Samsung Electronics America for allegedly deceptively advertising Smart TVs as having the capability to access the YouTube app directly from the televisions when, according to the complaint, the YouTube app stopped functioning on Smart TVs that send content and communicate with televisions using an older, flash-based application programming interface (API). (According to the complaint, Smart TVs with the newer HTML5 system still provide access to the YouTube app.) (Baird et al v. Samsung Electronics America, Case No. 17-cv-6407, N. D. CA.)
