Anyone else having problems accessing Lightbox tonight. Working fine till about 30 minutes ago and now I cannot access any content. Tried rebooting, changed browser, no reponse at all I get the login screen and once I enter credentials it just sits there going round and round.

Same again this evening - did as you did, but not on my side.

Technical support said they're working on the issue ASAP.

I can get on now right now though, no problem.

Just hiccups with all those thousands of people watching :)

I was amused tonight when Spark spokesman admitted that there was no evidence whatsoever that their DDOS problems were caused by the pictures. That was just something that someone made up for the hell of it.

I suddenly got a "Sorry, you can't access Lightbox from outside New Zealand" message.  I can now browse content again but trying to watch a show just has the spinning circle thing and then redirected to the home page.

Same here while trying to watch Vikings - starting to think I won't be subscribing if they can't sort this stuff out pronto.

Lightbox has been doing odd things for me this weekend, seems for whatever reason, snaps dns servers fail on www.lightbox.co.nz every so often. but is perfectly fine on without the www.

I am getting the DNS problem re living outside NZ. Spark is an enormous company and if the cannot get streaming working pretty much all the time then I seriously doubt whether anyone else will either. I would like to know how many people they have signed up and what sort of loading on the servers are they getting. I would imagine  TVNZ CDN is twice as busy as Spark and they seem to have delivery working

Well TVNZ now reside in Telecom/Spark Tower. Maybe the two firms are looking for the pix
