YouTube services restored after hours-long outage

Yes, YouTube is down — it's not just you

YouTube says they're now working to fix access issues, after users reported outages all over the world.

YouTube said on Twitter that it is working on the problem but did not explain what happened. "We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and will keep you updated", it said in a tweet. Attempts to visit individual channels on the website returned "500 Internal Server Error" messages. "Please try again later".

In July, the YouTube TV subscription-television service in the United States went down for at least an hour in the middle of the World Cup semifinal between England and Croatia. Those trying to access videos or upload content were greeted with an error message.

YouTube went offline at around 9 a.m. this morning, surprising a lot of internet users.
