In-App Features could be your first choice to remove or block any YouTube channel or videos on your smart TV. Follow the steps to do so:
  1. On your Android TV remote, long press the video you want to delete, using the Select Button. You will have the options on the screen.
  2. Now tap on the Not Interested Option to hide and block the video from your YouTube timeline.
  3. Now select the Don't Recommend channel option, to remove any further recommendations from the selected YouTube channel.

Enable Restricted Mode

You can remove and block YouTube channels and any mature videos on your Android TV by enabling Restricted Mode. To enable the Restricted Mode you can follow these steps:
