YouTube TV offering a week of free service to make up for World Cup outage

You don't mess with soccer hooligans, so YouTube TV is looking to make it right after an outage during the World Cup earlier this week.

[Update: It's back] YouTube TV goes ded in the middle of fancy soccer game

Yes, you read that right: YouTube TV has gone down amidst a major sports game yet again. This last happened during Game 2 of the NBA's Eastern Conference Finals, and it seems like Google's streaming service just isn't built to handle all of the World Cup fans either.

YouTube TV finally lets you choose between DVR and VOD versions of your saved content

Google advertises YouTube TV with unlimited cloud DVR storage space, but it's not like that matters. More often than not, YouTube TV swaps out your "recorded" shows for the video-on-demand (VOD) version with unskippable ads.

YouTube and YouTube TV don't share much other than the name, but that might change soon. Buried deep in the YouTube app is your watch history from YouTube TV. This suggests there will be some connection later, but right now it just throws up errors when you try to open a video.
