There isn't a way but you can lock it if you need to.

Re: how to i uninstall youtube on xfinity x1

We, clients, need a way to get rid of YouTube app icon !!!! In the same way we can do in any Windows OS. We have the right to (completely) configure the system we are paying to!

 

It´s not sufficient to have a Parental Control withPIN, this shows that the parent is the responsible to lock the YouTube to the children, and children does not have the maturity to understand this!! 

 

Xfinity X1 is a program, like an OS, and it is able to be configured the way we NEED, not the way Comcast and YouTube WANT.

 

We clients have the right to completely block or remove an icon, or app, in our devices, including the xfinity "whatever it is".

 

I REQUIRE to Comcast a settings screen (limited by PIN) in which I could at least select the apps I want to present on mian screen. This have been an issue since the lauch of this kind of interface.

By using the you tube app on x1, it also uses the WiFi data, I understand you can block it with parental controls, my question is there a way to place a time constraint on it instead of blocking the entire app. That might be an innovation that comcast can try

At this time no there isn’t a way to place time restraints
