the only chance we have is to keep contacting youtube tv and Hulu support with requests to fix this, this is not a samsung issue, samsung developed autorun last app feature to be enabled by the individual developers of the app, maybe thats a mistake, but its too late to be changed now. Keep sending support tickets with YouTube TV and Hulu

This issue is not a problem with Samsung, its a problem with the way Youtube TV app was developed with the option to have Autorun last app enabled during development, please email youtube tv support (firstname.lastname@example.org) the following issue and have their development work on the fix: email@example.com Dear Youtube TV Support Team, There is an issue that has been brought up numerous times in the Youtube TV support forms, Samsung forums, Reddit support forums that never got resolved The issue is on any Samsung Smart TV that offers Youtube TV app (2016 to 2020), when you shut off the tv, and turn it back on again, it does not go back to the Youtube TV app. This does not happen on many other apps on the Samsung Smart TV platform, it doesn't happen in the regular Youtube app or Youtube Kids app, this problem occurs on the Youtube TV app (which suggests the problem is intentional, but i hope it's just because of negligence) Samsung offers the feature call "Autorun Last App" on Startup, but the developer of the app must enable it when they make the app. The Youtube TV app is the only app i use on the TV, so it's not fair that the TV has to open a different app first, and i have to always manually switch back to the Youtube TV app, this is a waste of time and nuisance for everyone who uses this app on Samsung Smart TV's. Please speak to the developers to allow this feature to the app, please collaborate with the developers of the Youtube app or Youtube Kids app so they can help train on how to enable this feature. I set this app on my elderly parents tv in my house and it's difficult for them to switch apps, and i want the TV to always boot up straight away to the YouTube TV app for them It's a very simple feature to enable, please, I implore your team to make this your number 1 priority. Samsung Smart TV platform is the most common TV sold in America, it shouldn't be overlooked. Thank you for your time and patience, I listed below all the support threads that are currently discussing this missing feature.
