    Just switched to YouTube TV now that Vue is officially done tomorrow. Is there a way to organize the guide in alphabetical order instead of grouped by channel type?

    Also, does anyone know of a way to get DIY network outside of YouTube TV? I’m going to miss myself some Mike Homes and Maine Cabin Masters.

    In settings you can customize the guide.

    You can drag and drop them in alphabetical order on your mobile phone and it will also be that way on TV too.

    Ive read once you do that it won’t add new channels when they become available. I don’t trust my wife to figure that out if it ever comes up.

    I'm talking about the order, not about making channels visible.

    The more you use youtube the more it leans your viewing patterns and on the home screen will populate with things you'd want to watch. I find I hardly ever have to go to the guide.

    This is the best part of it for me. Even when I forget what I was planning to watch, there is usually an option for it on the 3-5 recommended channels when I open the app up.

    Does anybody else have issues with recorded shows not saving where you're at in an episode (resuming show at a later time)?

    I was on PS Vue and made the switch, and it has been almost all positive (besides no NFL Network/RedZone option). Just not sure why my subscribed shows start from the beginning when I've previously watched a portion of them.

    Philo, $20/mo. I got it in addition to YTTV to pick up other channels I liked.

    I find it is easiest to move the channels around in a browser window of your computer.

    Viacom channels are not on many streaming services. Their loss.

    We'll be switching to PhIlo after basketball season. Seeing the comparison really makes you realize how much ESPN networks cost each month.

    I concur. You can reorder the channels on your phone/mobile device but it is kind of tricky and trends to jump around when dragging them. It is really simple on the computer and much easier to see everything. I can't do it from my TV using my Roku. It tells me to log in on my computer to do it.

    Wait I thought Vue was ending the 30th?

    Did anyone use Vidgo? It has DIY, NFL Net/Redzon and some other things that are interesting.

    Thanks, it seemed that might be the case on the few reviews I read. Just realized it doesn't have NBC or its affilated channels. That is a nonstarter. No Blackhawk games!
