The "What's On Freeview" site often sulks when I try to use it.  It usually sits around 2.00am for a long time before it wakes up.  Am I clicking in the wrong place?

Thanks for the confirmation about the weekend.  Maybe that's when the site is popular!

Just tried now and their site is still down.  I cleared the cache and restarted but no go.  At least I know its not just mine now.

Working for me in Firefox. Page loads promptly (and has an Americanism in the title...)


Edit: NOT working on my phone. As mentioned earlier, all the hallmarks of a DNS issue!
