YouTube TV boasts a wide variety of live and on-demand TV from major broadcasts and popular cable channels for its users.

However, some are experiencing a lot of inconveniences on the TBS channel feeds while streaming content.

YouTube TV users facing glitchy TBS channel feed

Several users have reported (1,2,3,4,5) experiencing pixelation issues while watching TBS on YouTube TV. Users have expressed their frustration with the problem and how it’s impacting their viewing experience.

@AEW@YouTubeTV@TBSNetworkfix this damn broadcast. The video keeps cutting out and it’s all pixelated. And it’s only on TBS. I tried a couple of other channels and it’s not doing it. I closed the app and everything and it didn’t help.

@YouTubeTV is there a reason the TBS stream is so glitchy tonight???

Some users have even shared screenshots of their TV screens, highlighting the poor quality of the TBS channel feed.

Since the glitch is subjective only to the TBS channel, it seems that the issue is not related to the internet or the service.

Frustrated users have taken to social media and Reddit to express their concerns about the problem and discuss a solution.

This is not the maiden time that YouTube users are coming across glitch issues. We have earlier discovered YouTube TV users struggling with a similar glitch issue while streaming Super Bowl.

Official acknowledgment

Thankfully, the YouTube TV support team has acknowledged the issue through a tweet.

we’re aware of the pixelation issue on TBS feed and we’re looking into it rn. appreciate your patience

It’s not yet clear what is causing the glitch issue. Some users have also suggested that this issue is not limited to one device but affects multiple devices.

This issue has raised concerns among YouTube TV users, who are paying a subscription fee to access a seamless and uninterrupted streaming experience.

We hope that YouTube TV will work quickly to address the glitchy TBS channel feed. Until then, stay tuned as we will update the story with any developments we come across.
