Probably something to do with the Amazon Web Services Outage which is still ongoing.

Yep, almost in it's 4th day...wtf :(

Sources say it's a DoS attack followed by an intrusion.  Hope our PSN IDs are safe, really not good!

lyonrouge: stink for us trying to use RemotePlay :-( How am I going to watch TV in the office now?


I'm also having issues with TVNZ On Demand, it freezes about 10 seconds before finishing a segment then I have to close it and reopen it and open up the next chapter.

Any one else suffer from that?

Oh and when hitting High Quality, then Full Screen, it starts playing the episode, while the advert is playing in the background...

Latest update on outage
http://community.us.playstation.com/thread/3423560

Updated: 8:20AM PST 4/25/11



From the PS Blog:



"I know you are waiting for additional information on when PlayStation Network and Qriocity services will be online. Unfortunately, I don?t have an update or timeframe to share at this point in time.



As we previously noted, this is a time intensive process and we?re working to get them back online quickly. We?ll keep you updated with information as it becomes available. We once again thank you for your patience."

Supposedly it's down because there's a Custom Firmware that was recently released that allows you to take anything from the PS Store or become a PS+ member without paying for it.
