I spoke with CS last evening after reading your post. The consensus right now, other than the sheer number of titles, is that it's probably an internet connection issue. You might want to contact Google support to see if they have a better DNS service for you to use. (Google DNS servers may actually help alleviate the problem; it's never helped me personally with connection issues, but I've seen a lot of other people here on the forums who have better response times with either Google DNS or Open DNS).
I'm alerting the Social/CS teams. I'm hoping someone will reach out to you Monday, but no guarantees they can fix the issue .
I know that's not what you want to hear, and I apologize. There's just too many factors in streaming and local environments that can cause this particular type of issue.
As an aside, as funny as it may sound, try unplugging any electronics that may be nearby (microwave, stove, etc) that may be issuing interference. Don't just turn them off ... unplug them (most electronics are "always-on"). Other than that, I've personally exhausted all my options/advice. Hopefully CS can help. Good luck!
Might also try other bandwidths on your router, and/or other channels if you haven't already done so. There's a possibility that a nearby router/connection could interfere and cause this behavior as well (not to mention, a next-door-neighbor's microwave).
Yes, it is in HD but the real concern is the extremely long time it takes to launch. I think it is because I have a very large library of titles but apps like Vudu and Movies Anywhere launch very quickly.
Here's how Google just responded:
5. Try playback on YouTube:
- Press the home button on your remote.
- Select the YouTube Channel
- Ensure that you are signed into the same account that purchased the content on Google Play.
- Navigate to purchased videos.
- Retry the video.
Have already tried 1-4 so we'll give #5 a try!
