As a result of the outage, viewers were unable to access any live Disney content, including recordings that had been saved to their personal libraries.
Because of a breakdown in negotiations between YouTube and Disney over the terms of the contract between the companies, which expired late Friday, there was a service outage on Saturday morning. It was YouTube’s request that Disney bill the company at the same rate for distributing its content as it did for other television providers of similar size. After much deliberation, the two companies came to an agreement on Sunday.
YouTube apologized for the inconvenience and announced that it would provide a $15 credit to those who were affected.
