YouTube says fixed issues with TV, main app after users report problems

(Reuters) -Alphabet Inc’s YouTube said it had fixed issues with its main app and YouTube TV after thousands of users reported problems with accessing the video-streaming site on Monday.

Outage-tracking website Downdetector showed there were more than 12,000 incidents of people reporting issues with YouTube on Monday afternoon.

Downdetector tracks outages by collating status reports from a number of sources, including user-submitted errors on its platform. The outage may have affected a larger number of users.

At 5.49 p.m. ET, YouTube incident reports were down to about 700 on Downdetector.
