YouTube TV Might be my favorite choice Best alternative to cable TV, However, it can be buggy in some cases.And unfortunately for those watching iOSincreased by one more.
member of r/youtubetv The subreddit (h/t 9to5Google) reports Error in YouTube TV app with iOS iPad OS. According to feedback, playback freezes for both live streams and DVR recorded content. Instead of watching your favorite TV show or movie, you’ll just see a spinning “loading” icon.
And YouTube seems to admit there is a problem. In another subreddit post, a YouTube TV rep posted: Team YouTube_Sam The engineering team says they are aware of a buffering issue with both YouTube TV and YouTube Primetime channels on iOS devices and are working on a fix.
TeamYouTube_Sam only mentions iOS in his post, but this also mentions iPadOS, as the YouTube TV apps on both mobile operating systems are likely to be very similar, if not identical. It is safe to assume that
What if the iOS YouTube TV app doesn’t work?
Unfortunately there is no quick fix to this problem, but there is some good news. Buffering bugs seem to have far-reaching effects, iphone and iPadand many other platforms, including other Apple operating systems, appear to be unaffected.
At the time of writing this article, Google TVandroid tv, Apple TV and mac OS Like YouTube TV’s web platform, it does not appear to be affected by this bug. Obviously, it’s still frustrating that cable TV alternatives don’t work on all platforms, but at least there’s a wide range of alternatives while the fix is implemented.
To be honest, what’s even more concerning at this point is that these bugs are becoming more frequent on YouTube TV. The most famous is the cord cutting option. Freeze during NBA playoffs It dates back to May and I’ve been having problems since then unskippable ads, Problems with Cloud DVR And just recently, before today, TV guide bug Not enough information displayed.I needed it too Deploy redesign to subsequent redesigns Users complained about the new user interface.
I hope this is just temporary growing pains for YouTube TV.But when YouTube takes over this fall, those problems will go away. NFL Sunday Ticket. A bug during an NFL game can have disastrous consequences for football fans and YouTube TV alike.
