YouTube TV Major Problems

Some 7 days ago, YouTube TV began to exhibit major problems, particularly with their channel selector and dvr system; changing channels began to take between 10-30 seconds, while ad skipping started taking at least as much time to restart any playback.

Interestingly, YouTube at the same time began stalling during the pre-ads, then doing the same at the beginning of the clip playing. Mid-clip ads stalled as well, all stalling taking anywhere between the 10-30 seconds.

All of these effects were confirmed on multiple roku's (including the latest ultras), all running the latest f/w 9.4.0 build 4200-17. No other apps, including netflix, hulu, prime, and others exhibited any problems. As Google runs both services, they were contacted immediately and over 3 hours was spent trying to troubleshoot the problem and gathering comprehensive information as to the problems. However, as of this date, no fix has been forthcoming.

Then today, folks who had subscribed to hbomax through youtube tv found that the service had cut them off. Neat. The roku app tries to force folks to re-subscribe, as if they hadn't done so through youtube tv; so far, no jumping through hoops seems to work, although looking at ones youtube tv account info shows that hbomax is part of ones subscription. Google confirms that this is a known system error, so we'll see if it gets acted upon quickly.

Meanwhile, the stalling on both YouTube tv and YouTube continues. These are really major programming errors, caused most probably by attempts to streamline part of the system code, and a deep review of the system was not properly done afterwards. As far as today's hbomax mashup, who knows. In any event, google needs to clean house quickly before things get worse.
