    Hi,

    So the older ATV3 youtube app was great. When you paused a video it would bring up recommendations and also you could scroll down and subscribe to the channel if you wanted.

    The new ATV4 youtube app doesn't seem to offer this - if i come across a video i like I can't see to work out how to subscribe to the channel nor does it offer other recommendations.

    Am i missing something or is this new ATV4 youtube app missing a couple of things?

    Thanks

    That's why I sometimes use my Playstation 3 to play YouTube videos. My ATV3 does exactly what you say and show recommendations... but on the Playstation 3, it shows dozens of recommendation while I watch a video... I just hit the down button and a whole row of about a dozen recommended videos show up. I can either start playing any one of them and/or subscribe to that video's channel.

    So sad to see that the ATV4 has nothing like it.

    The new app is missing rather a lot at the moment. I assume that it will improve over time: meanwhile I'm Airplaying YouTube video from my iPhone.
