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.

NBA League Pass now available through YouTube TV for $40 per month

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2018

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. Cable subscribers will already have options, but for everyone else, there are also online-only alternatives. The NBA offers its League Pass through various platforms and apps, and it's now available through YouTube TV.

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.

Heads-up: These are the networks you can access with TV Everywhere and your YouTube TV account

Wednesday, August 8th, 2018

Last October, YouTube TV started working as a cable login, allowing subscribers to the service to access other participating networks' streaming sites and apps with their YouTube credentials. However, at the time, we didn't have an exhaustive list of all the networks that support the feature. Now, Google has published it and we know there are 67 partner sites (though with several regional iterations of the same one). 

Without further ado, here is the list:

  • ABC
  • AMC
  • BBC America
  • Big Ten Network
  • Bravo
  • CBS
  • CBS Sports Network
  • CNBC
  • Disney Channel
  • Disney Junior

The latest additions include text revealing an upcoming Pixel Stand charging dock, settings for a YouTube TV content filtering option, and what looks like enhanced voice-controlled features for use in the car based on work Google has done with Assistant-enabled headphones.

‘Skinny bundle’ streaming services like YouTube TV are struggling to turn profits

Monday, July 23rd, 2018

Internet-based cable alternatives like Sling and YouTube TV are having a hard time figuring out how to make the model profitable, according to a report from The Information. Sources say YouTube TV is paying networks a total of about $49 per month for each subscriber to its basic package — which the company charges $40 a month for.

Deals with networks aren't cheap, and they're only getting more expensive: the yearly programming costs for internet TV services reportedly increase by as much as seven percent per year.

YouTube TV offering a week of free service to make up for World Cup outage

Friday, July 13th, 2018

You don't mess with soccer hooligans, so YouTube TV is looking to make it right after an outage during the World Cup earlier this week. Many of those affected by the outage say they've received emails from YouTube that promise a week of free service as compensation. That's not bad for a rather brief interruption.

If you were watching the match when service cut out on Wednesday, check your email for a notice from YouTube.

YouTube TV goes ded in the middle of fancy soccer game

Wednesday, July 11th, 2018

Yes, you read that right: YouTube TV has gone down amidst a major sports game yet again. This last happened during Game 2 of the NBA's Eastern Conference Finals, and it seems like Google's streaming service just isn't built to handle all of the World Cup fans either.

You'd think that Google would try to strengthen its service before such a big game, but apparently not.
