I was wondering why I can never join other Sims when they already watch TV, because it kind of made no sense that all I could do was start watching a new channel etc. So yes I have the problem too! I cannot ever join neighbors when they already watch the TV!

This is still a problem in my game, too, and it's very annoying. I tested with and without mods, in my old save and a fresh one. The second sim has no option to "watch current channel". And I *do* have Movie Stuff installed. 

 

Especially now that we have many more channels than before, it's very annoying to scroll through them all to find the right one.

Yeah, it's still happening.  I noticed something interesting observing my sims' autonomous actions. Sim A is watching the TV. Sim B decides to watch TV as well and in that sim's queue it says "watch current channel". So, technically the action is there. There's just some code breakdown keeping us from helping the sim perform this action. 

 

(IDK if this is helpful, just an interesting something I found out about this glitch.)

The option is still not showing, but some sims do join watching the current channel autonomously

I have this as well! I used to be able to until one of the recent patches and now it's gone.
