YouTube TV is Rolling Out a New Library For Its DVR & On-Demand Programming

One of the main complaints about YouTube TV has been its library, where you can find your DVR programs and on-demand options. Now, YouTube TV has started to roll out a new library.

This new library moves the menus to the very top of your TV. You will no longer find the option to sort your programs on the left side or in the middle, depending on what device you have. Also, many of the menus have been renamed. The shows tab is now called series. YouTube TV is also now sorting titles by what it thinks you are most likely to watch and not in alphabetical order.

This new guide has gone live on Apple TV devices and will likely roll out to others in the near future. However, the reactions of users who already have received the new library have been negative at best on Reddit.

YouTube TV also recently made changes to its channel guide. This change now brings you back to the last channel you watched on the channel guide instead of always bringing you to the top of your guide every time you back out of watching a channel. This feature helps you pick up from where you left off on the YouTube TV live guide instead of needing to scroll down to the bottom every time.

There doesn’t seem to be a way to turn this feature off at the moment. With many customers creating customer guides with favorites at the top, they may prefer to have it back to the default of the guide, returning to the top when you leave a live channel.

This news comes as YouTube TV has reportedly continued to be Google’s fastest-growing service, crossing 6.5 million subscribers. YouTube TV is pulling away from other live TV services like Hulu + Live TV, Sling TV, and Fubo.
