YouTube TV Went Down During the World Cup and People Are Freaking Out

July 11, 2018, 7:50 PM UTC

YouTube TV went down as soccer fans were watching the England Croatia game of the World Cup, and people were not pleased.

YouTube TV acknowledged the issues saying on Twitter, “Hey everyone — sincere apologies for streaming issues with YouTube TV. The timing is horrible but we’re working to be up and running again ASAP!”

People were not very pleased with the situation and voiced their concern on social media.

Some said they even joined YouTube TV just to watch the World Cup. Users reported that they were unable to see the end of the first half of the game and are still waiting for the service to come back on so they can watch the second half.

YouTube TV has been posting updates on its Twitter account, and is working to fix the problem. However, nearing the end of the game with 10 minutes left, the service still was not up and running again.
