"tired of the ongoing shenanigans surrounding the YouTube TV app,"

Tired of it?  I gave up on it.

"For the past couple of months, YouTube TV and Roku have been at odds"

The past couple of months?  When I first got a Roku it didn't even have YT because they were at odds. I can't remember when I got it, but it's a 2XS which came out 10 years ago...Mine's probably not that old, but I think there was a private YT channel that got shut down and then the official YT showed up eventually, but I felt like it was sluggish and maybe even purposely crippled.

Now I have a couple of Roku sticks as well and they work fine, but YT on the 2XS stopped working at some point. Also, Al Jazeera and a few other channels don't work on that one.  The fact that AJ doesn't work is more bothersome to me though.  I see my Rokus as News & Netflix devices.

And lately it seems it's more News & Snooze than Netflix & Chill..

Odd. YT and YTtv both work fine on the Rokus. I was concerned that it was going to break - still am - but not yet. Thinking about home brewing one with a Pi.

I suppose pointing out the comma splice would also be considered petty.

Ugh! Free is too expensive of a price to put up with TiVo stream.

It's like cricket wireless or spectrum cellular bundles or 3rd party energy providers.

Who here hasn't screwed up their punctuation occasionally?

"Don't be evil" vs. "Don't. Be evil" is a simple mistake anyone could make.

Irony - The YTTV app is broken for many existing Tivo Stream users. Channels freeze but the audio keeps playing. It's been going on most of this year but neither Tivo nor Google has lifted a finger to fix it.

///Plugged it in today and updated it based on this news. Still FUBARed

Completely unrelated, but (to me) worth noting:  a couple weeks ago HBO updated their app and it sucked.  It broke scrubbing and was buggy and borderline unusable.  Why is that worth noting?  They actually fixed it.

TiVo worked with Sling to make them the preferred Live TV service for the stream. My problem with the stream is that it's crap hardware. I had two that came defective.

Amazon screwed up their Prime Video app for Android TV a month or two ago and hasn't fixed it.
