I usually refresh the page a few times to move past ads. A lot of times 2-3 refreshes is all you need. Sometimes the ads are persistent and I'm eventually forced to watch one before accessing the video but in these cases they were all different ads. What struck me as odd here is that, for YouTube TV ads, not only does 3-5-10 (I was curious) refreshes not move past the ad but every refresh returns the exact same YouTube TV advertisement which isn't typical (for me at least).
Seems to me that they basically renamed the failed venture of YouTube Red and are pushing a censorship happy streaming service with the end goal of suggesting progressive marxist channels and de-listing any and all channels which don't abide by the left's coveted "critical theory".
