YouTube TV app now available on all Vizio SmartCast TVs

Tuesday, January 8th, 2019

After roughly six months of slow and steady rollout, the YouTube TV app is now available on all Vizio SmartCast TVs. The $40 per month cable alternative first arrived on a selection of newer, high performing Vizio models about half a year ago, with a YouTube engineer on Reddit noting that the company would add more models after monitoring and fine-tuning playback quality. That process seems to be complete now, as Google has just updated its YouTube TV app help page confirming the support.

YouTube TV rolling out full DVR control on more channels

Thursday, October 4th, 2018

Google's YouTube TV offers a reasonably good value for streaming live TV. It has all your local stations, a fair number of cable networks, and several sports broadcasters. However, the unlimited cloud DVR has been artificially limited on many channels. Rather than the recorded version, some channels force you to watch VOD versions with ads. Today, YouTube TV will start opening up DVR options for more networks.

YouTube TV added the option to see different versions of your recorded programs earlier this year—you can tap the down arrow next to programs to expand the list.

The new NBA regular season gets going on October 16th, so it's a good time for ball fans to work out how they'll watch the action.

Just before the price hike from $35 to $40 came into effect, YouTube TV announced that NBA TV and MLB Network were being added to its roster — subject to an additional fee, of course.

The YouTube TV web app now has a dark mode

Sunday, September 16th, 2018

At long last, the mobile YouTube apps added a dark mode back in July. The YouTube TV mobile app is still as bright as ever, but if you use the web app version at all, you're in luck. Late last month, a YouTube TV support article was updated that points out the new dark mode feature.

The page says, "Dark theme allows you to tone down your screen’s glare and experience YouTube TV with a dark background.

YouTube TV memberships can now be paused

Thursday, September 6th, 2018

Pausing memberships isn't something that many subscription services offer, but YouTube TV is now joining that limited club. In the (probably pretty rare) instance that you'd like to pause your YouTube TV subscription, but not completely cancel it, that's now an option according to YouTube TV's support documents.

YouTube TV will allow your subscription to be paused for anywhere from four weeks to six months. It looks like the main reason you'd do so instead of canceling it is to have your recordings continue to be saved while you go on your hiatus, though the nine-month expiration date for recordings still applies.
