Roku users, we have some bad news.

The digital media player has pulled the YouTube TV app from it’s channel store due to ongoing disputes, according to USA Today.

The decision came after the Youtube TV’s contract with the digital media player expired and the two sides haven’t managed to forge a new deal. 

However, the good news is that Roku revealed it’s “taking the extra step to continue to offer existing subscribers access to YouTube TV on the Roku platform unless Google takes actions that require the full removal of the channel.”

Essentially, if you’re grandfathered in, you should still have access. New subscribers, on the other hand, won’t have access until a new deal is reached. 

Per The Verge, Roku told customers that they should “not delete the YouTube TV app as it will not be available for download to Roku devices.” 

Dallas Lawrence, a spokesperson for the company, told the USA Today that he’s “disappointed” with Google’s decision to allow the contract to expire. 

“It is well past time for Google to embrace the principles that have made streaming so popular for millions of users by giving consumers control of their streaming experience, by embracing fair competition and by ceasing anticompetitive practices,” said Lawrence.

Roku has said the negotiations broke down over “unfair terms” that weren’t in the best interests of users. 

However, YouTube TV’s spokesperson, Mariana De Felice, said that the company was working in “good faith” with Roku and they are “disappointed” by the “baseless claims” that have been made as they continue negotiations.

When Will ‘The Resident’ Return After the Time Jump?

The Resident Review No Good Deed Season 5 Episode 2

If you turned on the TV tonight hoping to catch a new episode of The Resident, you were in for quite the surprise. 

The medical drama did not air a new episode this week, October 26. 

That’s quite a bummer considering The Resident Season 5 Episode 5 — the show’s annual Halloween episode — featured a jaw-dropping time-jump that brought the staff of Chastain three years into the future. 

Right before the reveal, the series also gave Conrad, his co-workers, and fans, closure to Nic’s death.

Since the series is taking a little break, we’ll have to wait to see what everyone is up to several years down the road. 

When can we expect new episodes?

The short answer is that the upcoming episode will air after the World Series. 

If you’re not a sports fan, you might find yourself wondering when that is. 

The October 26 episode was preempted by Game 1 of the World Series. 

The earliest the show could return is Tuesday, November 2. That’s if and only if the World Series wraps up within five games or less. 

However, if it spans six games, The Resident will return with a new episode on November 9.

Basically, you’re going to have to pay attention to sports for the next few weeks to ensure that you don’t miss The Resident Season 5 Episode 6. 

Here’s the synopsis for the episode to get you excited about what’s to come, although, I know you’re probably still buzzing from the major twist. 

“Conrad brings a patient into the hospital who causes a high-security crisis; an MMA brawl sends a well-known fighter to Chastain and all hands are on deck; Bell and Raptor vie for the same position at the hospital; Leela gets a visit from her sister.”
