TV Player Suffers Outage

Online streaming platform TV Player has suffered a major network outage, affecting most of the channels in their free package. At the time of writing, these channels are still offline.

TV Player is a available via its website, as well as apps across several devices. Free and paid for services are available, and a sign in/log in is mandatory.

The service has recently faced criticism for moving most ITV channels to premium package, despite these services remaining free to air on platforms such as Freeview and Freesat.
