    Has anyone had issues casting last week tonight to Chromecast? It's happened every week for the past couple of months on all of my Chromecasts. It just crashes my hbo max or plays audio only. Plays fine on my phone without casting or through fire tv or the xbox hbo app, and it's only this show for some reason.

    It’s been mentioned a bunch in the OSU thread. Seems to be a big issue

    FuboTV 4K is absolutely amazing on the OSU/MINN game.

    It’s ahead of the normal broadcast by a few seconds but the audio on 4K is synced with video on 4K.

    This is my first season with yttv. Anyone have an issue when streaming espn to a chromecast where it just switches the game midstream? Sometimes it even goes to a game that's already ended

    New sports channels in the add-on sports package with YTTV. I don't think the price changed, despite ~2x of channels included.

    New channels now included.
    • beIN Sports
    • Billiards TV
    • Outside TV+
    • Players TV
    • PokerGO+
    • SportsGrid
    • Stadium College Sports
    • VSiN

    I use the CC with Google TV and occasionally an older chromecast. No issues like you describe.

    In case someone else comes across it, did some googling and saw it was a recent glitch with 1st gen chromecasts. Switched to a newer one and it went away

    Any idea when ABC gets a 4K channel on YTTV? Cause the normal ABC broadcast is so trash, even compared to the non-4K broadcast of all the other networks

    YTTVers:

    Anyone else get 3 NFL Network channels pop up the other day? I'm guessing they are alternate/overflow channels since they do not display permanently in the guide.

    I'm not a big NFL game watcher. What should I expect to air on those?

    Yes and yes they are overflow channels. Not sure why they exist for the NFL Network since it's not like they air multiple live games at the same time. As you stated, they will only show up in your live guide if there's something airing on them so it's really nothing to pay attention to.

    I've never understood why they don't let you create custom categories and sort that way (locals, sports, kids, etc). Moving channels around is just so unnecessarily clunky.

    Just get her a separate family login so she can have her own content. I think you can add 6.

    I will say that I love the sports filter in the live guide on Saturdays. Incredible for finding games. Should be clutch during march madness, too

    I just record every cfb and nfl game and watch at my leisure.

    Rarely watch anything live unless I put on sports center in the background or something.

    Same. Live TV primarily gets used for events/sports, rare occasions where I feel the need to see live breaking news, and putting on TBS sitcoms or Bravo as work background.
