Aereo apologizes for brief outage during the Golden Globes

Aereo, the streaming TV startup backed by media mogul Barry Diller, has apologized for a brief service outage tonight. The outage only lasted about an hour, but was especially unfortunate because it coincided with the Golden Globes. The outage struck Aereo’s largest market, New York City, where it launched in 2012.

Aereo, a service that lets you stream live network TV over the Internet, went down in New York during the Golden Globes for about an hour tonight. The company acknowledged the issue on Twitter and said it was working to get the service up again. An Aereo spokesperson confirmed the outage in a statement to Business Insider: “Aereo experienced a partial outage in New York City tonight, which impacted small group of users who were unable to access their accounts. Our engineers have worked to resolve the issue. We are truly sorry for the inconvenience and encourage any Aereo members impacted by the outage to reach out to [email protected].”
