Google-owned YouTube, YouTube TV suffers outage

Several Google-owned streaming services are suffering from technical glitches, the company affirmed in a status post on Tuesday.

The issues are affecting video on-demand service YouTube and premium live TV service YouTube TV, according to a company official.

Google says YouTube users and YouTube TV customers may be experiencing problems with streaming videos, account switching, casting to TVs, using apps on game consoles and menus not loading when videos do stream.

A Google official said the issues started Tuesday afternoon, and the company does not know when they will be fixed.

Customers of other YouTube-branded products, including YouTube Music, were also experiencing issues, the company confirmed.
