No, it's not just you - YouTube TV is currently having a major outage, primarily on the East Coast. It doesn't seem to be affecting everyone (our own Ryan is having no problems over in Minnesota), but it does seem pretty widespread, with lots of reports on Twitter, DownDetector, and Outage Report.

Google is rolling out 'voice remote' in YouTube TV

Some Google apps get new features tied to updated versions, but others seem to spawn new things at random intervals when Google deems it appropriate. YouTube TV is one of the latter, and today's new feature is "voice remote." You don't need an app update, but you also can't access voice remote yet unless you are chosen by the Google.

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. It's easily the most annoying thing about YouTube TV, but that's finally starting to change. Some channels now let you choose between different versions of your saved content.

YouTube app now shows YouTube TV watch history, but it doesn't do anything yet

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.

YouTube TV gets a customizable live channel guide screen

Google sometimes adds new features to apps via updates with changelogs and whatnot. Other times, new features just magically appear one day. That seems to be the case with a new YouTube TV feature.

[Update: Adding SportsNet New York, too] YouTube TV learns not to spoil the game, expands to Charleston, WV and SC

Spoilers suck. Whether you're enjoying some books and the TV series gets ahead of itself (Game of Thrones, you're dead to me), or your friends just can't resist revealing the twist at the end of a good movie, spoilers seriously ruin your appreciation for something. It's about the journey as much as the destination, right? So sportsball fans that subscribe to YouTube TV can now configure for scores to be hidden in the YouTube TV interface. Google has also expanded its TV service to Charleston, South Carolina and West Virginia.

YouTube TV is getting more channels, new markets, and a price increase

Google is preparing a big expansion of YouTube TV content, but it doesn't want you to know that yet. Buzzfeed News accidentally let the news go live early, and the internet took note before it could update the post. So, you can expect Google to announce a raft of new channels tomorrow, February 14th. The price of the service is also going up next month, but only for new subscribers.

YouTube TV is now live for both Rokus and Apple TVs

YouTube TV looks like a pretty sweet deal for those in supported markets. But, there are a few drawbacks. Most notable among them used to be device support, popular set-top streaming devices like Rokus and Apple TVs didn't have apps to support the service. If that was holding you back from being a YouTube TV subscriber, you should be happy to hear that Google just rolled out apps for each.
