    YouTube TV had one job, and they failed miserably. During the middle of Wednesday’s World Cup semifinal match between Croatia and England, the live streaming service unexpectedly went down, leaving anyone watching the game in the dark. The service was eventually restored roughly an hour later. However, the damage had been done.

    Obviously, this pissed off a lot of people, myself included. This isn’t the first time that this happened. When the Boston Celtics were playing the Cleveland Cavaliers in the conference semifinals, the live streaming service went down for about 20 minutes or so. This seems like a continuing trend when it comes to live sports because it’s happening to other live streaming services like Hulu.

    So to make things up, the company is issuing a free week to users who are on the $40 a month plan.
