Family watching TV

Family watching TVOne of the most requested features for the YouTube TV app is the ability to mark shows and movies in your Library as watched. With the way YouTube TV adds every program of a show, many have hoped that they would be able to mark a show as watched so it would no longer be recommended.

Now, according to a post on Reddit from a YouTube TV engineer, the streaming service YouTube TV will soon be adding the ability to mark something as watched so you no longer have to see it recommended.

Many still hope that YouTube TV will add the ability to pick just one program to record. For now, though, with YouTube TV recording every program of a show or sporting event, the ability to mark a program as watched is a huge step in the right direction.
