It's not just you — anything named YouTube is down

If you're thinking to yourself "Ya know, you guys never mention the 99.9 percent of the time that YouTube TV is working just fine ..." Well, you're right. We don't. But this isn't one of those times and so we're going to mention (again) that YouTube TV (and YouTube proper, along with YouTube Music, apparently) is struggling a bit this evening.

That in and of itself is not the end of the world. On the other hand, the end of the world will likely not cost us $40 a month. (Or cost us anything at all, for that matter. Or at least not for very long.) The point is, YouTube TV is down. It is not working. It is an ex-TV.

Last time this happened — in the middle of the damned World Cup semifinals — we got a week of credit for our troubles. This time? We'll see.

So no YouTube TV for you this evening. Maybe it's a good time to call your mother instead.
