Spectrum TV is down

For those of you living in the US, you are probably well acquainted with Spectrum, the Internet and television streaming provider.

Spectrum is currently down

Unfortunately, if they are the only streamings service that you are subscribed to, then you might be out of luck at the moment since the Spectrum services are down, both the servers and even the official website.

Service stability is not something most of these streaming services are known for, since many of them experience frequent and quite long server-related issues. For example, last week Sling TV was also down.
