Youtube TV Experiencing A Widespread Outage
If you are having issues watching Youtube or YoutubeTV, you are not alone.
According to Variety, the services are experiencing a widespread outage. Area's hardest hit by the outage, which appears to have started sometime around 7 PM Eastern, include the UK, Western Europe, Australia, South America, and the Northeastern United States.
Users trying to watch Youtube videos get a spinning wheel.
People trying to watch shows (live or recorded) on Youtube TV get a spinning wheel followed by an error message.
So far, no word on when the problem could be fixed.
Outages are really rare for Youtube and Youtube TV. The last time they had an extended issue, which lasted for about 90 minutes, was in October of 2018.
We first noticed the outage at around 7:45 PM, as we were trying to watch Jeopardy. Considering how stable the system is, we never considered it was an outage until after we noticed that nothing was accessible. Time to take a break and watch some Netflix, right?
