    Well if an bird is dead I think a lot of channels will have to be turned off to at least get RSN's HD up. Will they let people out with no ETF suspend for an full year?

    Panic much?


    No, but working in IT it's the sense of urgency and "what's the ETA" mentality when something breaks (either within my control, or outsourced by a third party or service provider).

    Just curious what happened, that's all.

    The same channels are out on the iPad live streaming so that points to a content source acquisition issue.

    Could have been knocked out by EM emmissions from an approaching alien fleet that uses an alternative form of power and propulsion.

    We'll know shortly I guess :eek2:

    Actually there is a slide up that says it's a technical issue on their end.

    Ok some of those work on iPad while others don't.

    TBS, CNN, Audience, FX work... but many of the other ones have the technical difficulties message up.

    Not a word on Facebook (besides a wrath of customer complaints) or a message on the website. I suspect the outage shouldn't be too long since there's no announcement from DirecTV regarding it.
