    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. ;)
