In recent weeks and months, users have reported a host of other problems with YouTube TV, but the good news (especially since we really like this service) is that most of them are not insurmountable. In fact, what we've found is that many of the initial problems were caused by YouTube TV itself not working during the initial launch. Recently, the problems are due to compatibility.
One of the first things to do if you are experiencing any YouTube TV problems is to check the compatibility site. For example, if you are trying to use YouTube TV on an older Apple TV device, the compatibility site makes it clear you do need to use the fourth-generation version that supports 4K. You'll also want to investigate whether there might be an issue with your Internet connection, your router, your smart television...meaning, the problem might be something with your own devices, settings, or connection.
What if you are trying to use a VPN to access the service? Well, the truth is that it depends on the VPN. We recommend using a VPN that stays up to date and works reliably and to make sure you avoid a lower-end VPN that might cause issues.
