You can now choose to whether to watch a show, say a sports event or your favorite series, via video-on-demand or a DVR version.
If you click on the DVR version, you get more playback flexibility.
YouTube's DVR let you pause anytime, rewind, and fast forward—even past ads.
The service also offers unlimited storage space for cloud DVR, and that means nobody has to worry about exceeding limits. Users can load as many shows, games and movies as they want into YouTube TV's DVR.
YouTube TV added a dark theme to cut down on glare.
The Dark Theme darkens the background on your PC while you watch YouTube TV.
According to YouTube, not only does this reduce glare, but also enables viewers to"take in the true colors of the videos."
These are the kinds of user-experience bells and whistles that help YouTube stay ahead of the Comcasts and AT&Ts of the world. And this might be a good place to explain the reasons Sacconaghi said he believes YouTube TV is better than traditional cable.
"Cable companies are not tech companies," he wrote. "Their apps never work quite right. The user interfaces lag. The streams don't buffer properly. Cloud recordings mysteriously fail to record."
YouTube TV also tweaked its Live TV tab.
Subscribers can check out what's showing at the more than 60 television networks that YouTube TV offers.
To make surfing all those channels a breeze there's a live preview (rather than just a thumbnail) that's visible as you scroll down the list of channels.
The Live tab can now also be customized, so you can reorder channels and networks in the guide while hiding others.
Sports fans can also shield themselves from spoilers.
One of the coolest and smartest new features is something called "Hide all scores for this team/league," which enables sports fans to hide scores for specific sports teams and leagues.
This prevents final scores or live previews from appearing before a viewer has had a chance to enjoy the game or match.
What upgrade would be complete without a tie-in to Google Home?
Subscribers can now program their Google Home to help them channel surf on YouTube TV.
YouTube TV said in a statement that users can tell Google Home, "Ok Google, play MSNBC on YouTube TV," or "Hey Google, fast forward 3 minutes," or "Play the latest episode of Grey's Anatomy on YouTube TV."
You get the picture. YouTube and Google are helping to simplify and re-invent the TV-viewing experience.
