    Multiple people in the YTTV Facebook group are now reporting being offered a full month refund upon contacting YouTube directly about the outage, even after this email about the free week had gone out.

    I did another trial.
    I’m seeing a lot more 60fps on Roku. My LG app I’m not seeing any though.

    YouTube TV has apparently lifted restrictions to accessing DVR recordings on Fox, FX, FXX, Nat Geo, and Nat Geo Wild. I actually didn't mind the forced VOD on FX shows, as it was only one commercial per break and I'd almost rather sit through a 15-30 second commercial break than pick up my remote to fastforward and find the point that the program restarts...but I guess I'll still have that option.

    In other news, the Sinclair/Tribune merger is officially dead, so hopefully that means I'll get my local Fox affiliate back any day now, just in time for the NFL season.

    Perhaps especially important since Fox has all of the Thursday games this year.

    And when I'm in the regular YouTube app, my recommendations include videos related to TV shows I have been watching in YouTube TV. Funny how that works. ;)

    I was thinking the other day that it would be nice if YTTV would add maybe Hallmark Channel because my wife likes that channel,so after doublechecking all the other internet tv providers and still coming back to the fact that I made the right choices for my program packages I did a search and found that I could subscribe to the Hallmark Movies Now app separately for $60. a year which seemed expensive until I read there are no commercials.

    I looked at it for my wife too, and it only offered older stuff, nothing current. I haven't heard of any changes since I checked it out.

    You can now pause your YouTube TV subscription. No word on whether this will retain your $35/mo. grandfathered price, though many in the YTTV Facebook group are assuming it does.
    YouTube TV memberships can now be paused

    I thought this post in the Facebook YTTV group this morning was worth sharing here. Amazing indeed.

    I woke up this morning and my internet is not up to speed. Check the down map and Florida frontier is having some issue. I can't get Philo, I can't get Hulu, it won't let me in Amazon....but guess what is working? Yep, YTTV.... no buffering on whatever slow speed I have right now. I can't even do a speed test it's so slow. They might have just won the streaming app contest. At least for me. It's been between them and Hulu live up until now. Sorry for such a long post, I was just pretty amazed by this. –Verna B.​

    You can add USA Network and Bravo to the growing list of 60fps.
    SyFy and Smithsonian also 60fps.
