We stream local TV content from tv.youtube.com because we can find no other streaming service that provides our local stations. We use Firefox for this streaming, because our primary browser, Vivaldi, does not currently provide geolocation information, and YouTube needs to know our location in order to provide the correct set of local channels. YouTube requires our location to be refreshed periodically. That is, we can stream local channels using Vivaldi for a while, but then we need to confirm our location again.
I'm guessing that this requirement is so that they can prevent the sharing of passwords, and can detect the service being used in various locations.
Recently, instead of the Seattle/Tacoma area, Firefox has apparently been telling YouTube that we're in the Spokane area, which is about 300 miles to the east of us. That means that our local channels are now Spokane area channels, and thus we see no local news content.
Vivaldi currently streams correctly, showing us Seattle channels, but that won't last long. The next time we need to confirm our location, we'll need to switch back to Firefox again. Is there a way to find out if this has been reported by others?
