LG TV - YouTube App No Longer Supported After June ?

Hi, I have a 2011 LG LW5700 Smart TV. This week when I opened the YouTube app I was greeted with a message saying that it would no longer be supported after June. Now I know that back in 2015 Google announced that they were ending YouTube support for some older devices. However, that was back in 2015, and my device continued to work perfectly with YouTube. So why now, in mid 2017, is support for the app ending ? It was my belief that Google already made the change to the new YouTube API ages ago. My TV was also not listed as one of the devices that would no longer be supported: link

Is anyone else with an older model Smart TV having this issue ?
