    Hi i believe this used to occur where it failed to let me watch so called purchased movies, for years, on any and every device used, then it all just all of a sudden started working, but now it seems to be doing this with the Tivo Bolt+ Vox. i believe it may be some sort of syncing issue, maybe, as im lead to believe it's failing to load uploaded videos, watch later videos, correct history etc. i believe i used to be able to watch them, and it works on other devices, so maybe this latest update broke it? Is anyone able to watch Google Play movies via the Youtube app? Since Tivo got rid of the Xfinity app, there's no Disney+, no browser, and now this, i'm starting to seriously look at other options like a Roku.

    Update : k so apparently now that Google has YouTube TV it appears that when you attempt to activate YouTube to be used on the Tivo, it only gives permissions for YouTube TV the premium service to be used on Tivo...I'm told byTivo reps that only YouTube is provisioned to work on the Tivo not YouTube tv. So could it be unless they make changes to the activation permissions in order to allow access and use of the movies one might have so called purchased via the Google play store, it seems they want you to pay for the premium YouTube TV service to be able to access them? Or is just broken? This leads me to believe Google needs to fix the permissions to include Play movies or there needs to be separate permissions for the regular free YouTube app as a separate app from the YouTube TV app, similar to how YouTube kids is separate from YouTube TV. Anyone else seeing the same issue in being unable to access and play Google play movies from the YouTube app on the Tivo?

    probably not connected at all but the Youtube app on my Apple TV is not working now either. I can click into it but directional gestures on my ATV touch remote are not working.

    I'm not able to play my movies either.

    I updated my bolt to the new Tivo+ experience - and I'm not sure if it was coincidental - but I can't play my purchased movies anymore.

    It def appears to be a permission issue of sorts on youtube side. I tried to reset everything in the youtube app but that didn't fix it.
