At about 8:20 I noticed that the channel I was watching went south. Downdetector and Team YouTube seem to indicate things are bad all over. As of 8:41CST Team YouTube’s Twitter page acknowledged there are errors with the YouTube, YouTube TV, and YouTube Music access.
Issues vary platform to platform – on Android I can see the video but not pull any channel info. On Roku I can stream some channels and see channel info. Personally not having issues with YouTube Music as far as I can tell.
What are you doing during the great Alphabet Catastrophe of 2018? We’re watching Ozark on Netflix until the apocalypse passes.
Update: about midnight I tried writing a review for an app and got an error so this may be more widespread than just streaming services. That said, streaming was working an hour ago.
