Caches are great for speed, but when they don’t update often enough, it’s a confusing experience in an app or on a web site. I use YouTube Subscriptions almost every day on my AppleTV and it rarely shows me the latest videos, which I can see when browsing my subs on youtube.com in a browser. There’s no obvious way to force a refresh in the AppleTV app, but I found these tips in the Google Forums.
- Double press the Home button on the remote (The TV icon).
- Swipe up on the YouTube app to force quit it.
- Reopen the YouTube app.
- Due to caching, you might need to navigate away from the Subscriptions page and back to it a couple of times.
- For example, if you’re currently on Subscriptions, go to Home, then back to Subscriptions, then back to Home, then back to Subscriptions. The Subscriptions should be refreshed to reflect your current account.
