I purchased an LG OLED55BX6LB yesterday and noticed that when signed into the Youtube app, I'm still getting ads displayed despite it showing 'PREMIUM' on the app. Not a massive problem as I can just watch Youtube via an nVidia Shield, which doesn't show ads as expected.
Still, it's annoying. Is this a one-off, or do others have the same issue?

The YouTube Originals documentary received its offline debut this week on LG’s massive high definition digital billboard in New York’s iconic Times Square. The feature-length documentary, which premiered on YouTube over the weekend, is directed by Academy Award winner Kevin Macdonald and executive produced by the prolific Ridley Scott.
Life In A Day 2020 debuted on YouTube on February 6, when it also became available on the YouTube app on smart TVs including LG’s award-winning LG OLED TVs. The feature-length documentary is a collaboration between YouTube and LG Electronics and is composed entirely of selected contributions from people around the world who filmed their day on July 25, 2020.
Ten years after the original Life In A Day, YouTube and the filmmakers asked people all over the world to record their lives to tell the story of a single day on Earth. The filmmakers received more than 300,000 submissions, nearly four times the number of submissions to the previous film, which includes thousands of hours of footage from 192 different countries, in more than 65 languages.
Directed by Academy Award-winning director Kevin MacDonald (The Mauritanian, One Day in September, The Last King of Scotland), and executive produced by Ridley Scott (The Martian, Gladiator) and Kai Hsiung (Lords of Chaos), Life In A Day 2020 aims to showcase just how extraordinary life can be on an ordinary day.
“We are proud to collaborate with YouTube to feature this incredible and moving documentary live in Times Square on our LG digital billboard,’ said Peggy Ang, head of marketing at LG USA. “We hope visitors to Times Square will take a moment in their own daily life on February 8 to watch a part of Life In A Day and then enjoy its full impact at home with their families on an LG OLED TV.”

LG TV running v 05.10.30
When I hit my Home button, it shows me a list all my apps. AirPlay keeps showing up. So I delete it. Next time I turn on the TV is back.
I do not have the app installed 'My Apps'.
Any idea why it keeps showing up?
I would like to remove it permanently, or unless I want it.
Since a short while (maybe 2 weeks), the youtube app seems to have issues.
I can only play 2-3 videos consecutively, before it stops loading even the ads that come before each video, black screen only.
Funny enough, sometimes I am not even able to turn the TV off when this happens.
I already tried:
- Logout and back into my youtube acc.
- Uninstall the app from WebOS, turn TV off incl unplug power for 1+ minutes, reinstall the app.
- Reset the TV to factory default, reinstall everything.
Other apps work like a charm still, eg Netflix, Plex, other web based TV providers for local channels.
Youtube App used to work just fine for me, I would assume it has to do with a recent update.
For info, I am on a OLED55B7V
I also am posting a similar help request to the Youtube Forums.
Thanks for your help!
