Today YouTube TV’s team made several major announcements on Reddit about the future of YouTube TV. This includes fixes for the 5.1 audio, Apple TV, and DVR. YouTube TV will also be making improvements to its Library.
This all comes as YouTube TV gets ready for NFL Sunday Ticket to launch this fall.
Here is what YouTube TV announced today:
5.1 Audio/Video Sync: We’re rolling out some fixes over the next few weeks to address A/V sync issues across Live playback. We continue to welcome feedback! Feel free to leave a picture of your Stats for Nerds and your device information on this thread if you’re still experiencing issues. We’re also actively working on a separate follow on fix for VOD audio sync issues.
Apple TV: We resolved an issue last month with 1st gen 4k Apple TV devices crashing on long playbacks.
DVR: We had a few transient delays with DVR availability due to last month’s outage, but these are fully resolved.
Library Changes: We’ve heard your feedback about Library issues and are working on fixes to address the relevancy of Catch Up on your Favorites, incorrect Watch badging, and ordering of Recently Recorded entries.
NFL Sunday Ticket Unlimited Streams at Home: You asked and we listened! We’re updating our product functionality to grant you access to unlimited NFL Sunday Ticket streams in your home and 2 additional streams outside of your home for you and your household. You can read more here.
Stay tuned for more updates on the multiview feature and video quality next month! As always, thanks for your feedback.
