Updated: Bad timing for ESPN3: Team USA is facing off against North Korea in the Women’s World Cup, and Maria Sharapova just earned a spot in the semifinals in Wimbledon. However, neither game has been available for streaming on ESPN3′s website, because the broadband sports network has been suffering an outage this morning. An ESPN3 spokesperson acknowledged the outage when contacted by GigaOM, commenting via email:
“We’re aware of issues with ESPN3.com, and we’re working to resolve them ASAP. I don’t have an ETA for you at this time.”
He added that the outage wasn’t caused by traffic issues or hackers, but didn’t go into further details.
We’ll update this post as soon as we hear more. In the mean time, please share in the comments: Is the network working for you on connected or mobile devices?
Update (1:35pm PT): ESPN3′s website is back up. Let us know in the comments if you still have issues with the live stream.
