    Surprised this was not on the front page. I got an email yesterday that the tvOS YouTube TV app is out. I downloaded it last night and it works great. Yet another reason that the Apple TV 4K is the only box I'll ever need.

    I haven't played with it a ton, but it is very nice. All of my local channels are on it. I found fast forwarding while watching extremely clunky though. Unlike PS Vue, where I can just pause and then easily scrub forward and backward, the YouTube TV app I have to swipe up twice and then try and scrub forward. Maybe I just have to get used to it.

    Is this like every other service, where local channels are only available in some areas?

    Yep, although they are in a lot of areas. I'm in Buffalo, NY and I usually get that stuff last.

    I'll have to check, cause you only think you get stuff last.

    Edit - just checked. Not available here yet.

    Ah sorry. The app needs work anyways. Fast forward and reverse are a mess and the whole UI is laggy. I'm sticking with PS Vue for now.

    Hey there,

    Is anyone having issues with the YouTube TV Apple TV app and the apple TV remote? I was able to use the remote like any other of the apps by sliding a finger across the remote. This no longer works and it only responds to taps, no more sliding. It truly is a pain as there is no consistent way to know where to tap and what works. I have restarted a few times and nothing has changed. Any thoughts?

    They have a horrible setup for fast forwarding and reversing. people were complaining about it on Twitter too. I have to scroll up twice usually to be able to scroll right to fast forward through commercials. PlayStation Vue is still the best by far for me, although they only have 2 of my locals.

    This is my only annoyance with the app. Everything else is a step forward - especially discovering and browsing.
