US TV streaming service Aereo apologizes for outage during the Golden Globes

What a bad day to suffer an outage. US TV streaming service Aereo has apologized to affected customers after it went down during the Golden Globes tonight.

Aereo’s controversial set-up, which uses a small army of tiny antennas to pick up a traditional TV broadcast signal and pipe the content to each user over the Internet, is available to subscribers in a number of US cities only.

It seems tonight’s outage only affected customers in its largest market, New York City, but going down during an important event could raise questions about its ability to handle traffic and harm its reputation rather badly.
