You'll need an Amazon Fire TV Stick 4k Max (well worth it for this!)Install the Downloader app on the fire stick and turn on Apps from Unknown sources in the settings ->https://www.firesticktricks.com/sideload-apps-on-firestick.htmlInstall SmartTubeNext app on the fire stick from Downloader app ->https://www.firesticktricks.com/smarttubenext-on-firestick.htmlEnjoy ad-free youtube

I only sideloaded 2 apps from Downloader and they have been fine, haven't tried any other apps as I've no need for them, I'm not even using the firestick for anything else!

It's free for a month anyway so I'll see how it goes, plus I cancelled my MUBI subscription because their film choices have gone up their own hole so my wallet isn't more or less hurt.
