Latin woman looking disappointed at her laptopscreen, sitting behind her desk at the office.Have you been suffering from buffering with YouTube TV? Do you have Spectrum internet? Well, it seems that is the source of the issue, according to YouTube.

For the last few days, YouTube TV customers have struggled with a growing amount of buffering when streaming. Now YouTube TV has posted on Reddit that they tracked the issue back to Spectrum customers. According to YouTube TV, the YouTube TV website and apps on devices like Roku, Fire TV, and Apple TV are being affected by this buffering.

Here is the statement YouTube TV posted on Reddit about the recent buffering:

It started on Friday the 22nd, and seems scoped specifically to our web & living room playbacks on Spectrum/Charter cable customers only. It seems to only affect TCP traffic, not QUIC (hence why mobile playbacks are okay).

We’re continuing to investigate, and have a couple of leads – but nothing concrete yet.

Sadly there is still no fix for the recent round off buffering. The good news is it sounds like YouTube TV staff have found a possible solution to the issue. Hopefully, this means there will soon be a fix for customers affected by buffering since last Friday.
