YouTube TV’s New Guide Is A Bug That Will Be Fixed Soon

Did you come home to a new guide on YouTube TV that only shows three networks at once? The good news is that it is a bug, and it is being fixed according to a post by an official YouTube TV Reddit account. Soon you should once again see a full list of channels instead of just three channels on the guide.

Here is what the guide currently looks like:

Thankfully this is not some new look they are testing, and the guide should soon return to normal.

This all comes as YouTube TV is building out several new improvements. Last week YouTube TV announced new Multivie support that will now support women’s sports with the addition of the WNBA League Pass. Now you will be able to watch multiple WNBA games at once.

Back in June, YouTube TV announced several new improvements were in the works, including better picture quality, a new library to make your DVR even better, and Mulitview improvements. So far, only the multiview improvements have become a reality.

Now Google has confirmed to Cord Cutters News that a public beta of the new Library has started to roll out as a public test. YouTube TV says a handful of customers will start to see the new library as YouTube TV tests it before a more public launch at a later date.

This all comes as YouTube TV has been very vocal about rolling out new updates to the service as it continues to develop its new live TV streaming service.

Here are some of the other announcements YouTube TV made about its service back in June:

Picture Quality Experiments: We’re testing transcoding changes, including a bitrate increase for live 1080p content over the next several weeks. These will target devices that support the VP9 codec with high-speed internet connections. If these go well, we plan to make them permanent by this summer. More info to come!

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.

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.
