We have tried pinging TwitchTV website using our server and the website returned the above results. If twitch.tv is down for us too there is nothing you can do except waiting. Probably the server is overloaded, down or unreachable because of a network problem, outage or a website maintenance is in progress...

Can't Access TwitchTV - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Try alternative urls such as en.twitch.tv

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

If you guys are trying to watch Dota 2 or Starcraft 2, go to teamliquid.net and look at the live streamers on the right and click on the link to go directly to the stream. Hope this helps some people!

Chris Willis · 1 day 17 hours 59 mins ago

This site is useless when the front page is working, but the servers are down so no one can stream or watch right now. Just getting a logo in the middle of the screen if you try and go further in on the website.

Eiason Simmons · 2 days 6 hours 59 mins ago

i keep getting a grey screen with the twitch logo

Twitch.tv is down for me :( (On all browsers), other site works just fine (i.e. youtube, google, facebook...)

Cynthia TiiNy Godin · 25 March 2014 - 08:01

I was trying to stream GTA V. servers are down i believe nothing is loading.

Barry Watts · 25 March 2014 - 07:54

its down for me not loading no channels loading. fix this twitch better be fixed soon

Monsterous Rage · 25 March 2014 - 07:51

Glad I'm not alone on this, but still doesn't help me streaming lol

Timothy Tracey · 25 March 2014 - 07:50

Yes, channels won't load for me as well, cpu or tablet.

Ted Newman · 25 March 2014 - 07:39

The site itself is not down, which is why this says it isn't, but nothing will actually load once you get there. Following channels are all blank, streams will not load, browsing comes up with no channels/games. Some people seem to be able to get on, and even I was able to watch a stream for a bit, but it went down again for me, too.

Craig Judge · 25 March 2014 - 06:20

Just managed to get on but was down

Johnny Gonzales · 25 March 2014 - 06:19

beta.twitch.tv works try it out

Stefano Cecconi · 25 March 2014 - 06:18

Twitch is empty from everything, is not up, not even close.

Stefan Tapken · 25 March 2014 - 06:14

streams dont work

Aiden Rosenblatt · 25 March 2014 - 06:09

yea twitch is down for me too its just blank no channels. also i think its kinda douchy for the website to say "The website is probably down just for you..." when they seriously have no idea if that is the case, they should share their best evidence on how the site is doing not be assholes.

Lucas Jackrabbit · 25 March 2014 - 06:06

yup same for me, can't load channels, "Untitled Broadcast" and nothing happens

Meaghan Salisbury · 25 March 2014 - 06:03

Says no live channels no matter where i go

Zachariah Bateman · 25 March 2014 - 06:00

Australia, no channels live here either.

Timothy Ryan · 25 March 2014 - 05:56

Not working for me, Ireland.

Robin Witzner · 25 March 2014 - 05:44

Mine says "No channels live"

Alexis Kavouras · 25 February 2014 - 07:56

I have a problem. None of the plays or livestreams are working for me. Just a black page with Twitch written in the middle.

Popa Marin Sergiu · 25 February 2014 - 03:37

i have this problem: You have been blocked from using Twitch. Please visit the Support Center for more information on why you may have been banned.

Liam Barlow · 22 February 2014 - 11:51

Lorenzo Carnio · 28 January 2014 - 22:12

Clicking on following or games or any of the links results in a blank white page to the right... no loads

TEAM PHYS1X · 16 January 2014 - 19:56

Don't tell me this is because of the LoL tournament that's going on!?

Bas Vd Molen · 16 January 2014 - 19:53

Haley Alsante · 16 January 2014 - 19:53

Iflywithstars Gaming · 25 November 2013 - 17:13

Ryan C Davidson · 9 November 2013 - 12:23

Site and all streams are inaccessible for me. Comcast xfinity in Snqoualmie (Seattle suburb)

Ssid IsTik · 8 November 2013 - 21:26

Twitch is down for northwest xfinity users. Called the ISP and they confirmed it told me they would call me when it is up and running again for us. Yeh 3 hours ago...

Duncan Fogarty · 1 November 2013 - 19:56

It seems it's down again. I don't know what's going on but I can't seem to access the site at all.

Nicolas Valzino · 24 October 2013 - 02:50

im sorry but its false, twitch is down so fix this and dont say its up

Bryan Holmes · 19 October 2013 - 11:59

Not working for me in browser on my pc. It seems to be an ISP issue. The app on my phone wouldn't load through my wifi connection but worked perfect through t-mobile's data connection.

Nate Williams · 19 October 2013 - 11:06

It's not working for me either, yet every other website I access works just fine. I can barely even get the twitch homepage to load and channels are out of the question.

Alex Koenigsberg · 19 October 2013 - 10:40

It took about 5 minutes to half load the home page, no errors have been received but all it just wont load

Jordan Daigle · 19 October 2013 - 10:06

The twitch.tv website won't even load in any browser. Getting pretty pissed. Twitch support said it would be a few minutes and that was well over an hour ago.

Mikhail Anoshka · 15 September 2013 - 12:10

The site is down and not just for me, or something is up with the servers

David Elswick · 14 September 2013 - 20:06

Twitch isnt working the website server its self is up but im getting A http error

Scaleon Khan · 28 August 2013 - 21:13

It's down right now and gives me an error message, but I am still able to watch it on mobile.

Ur fukin dun kid · 28 August 2013 - 21:05

50 thousand people watching LoL... no wonder it's down... Now I'm missing my favorite streamers because of it.

Jeremy Blackwell · 28 August 2013 - 21:02

The site is down; but I am able to connect to streams through the mobile app; so I can keep watching with my phone hooked to my TV..

Rizzy Renea · 28 August 2013 - 20:59

Casper Stark · 22 August 2013 - 20:56

Dan Webb · 17 August 2013 - 13:39

I can't load twitch chat but others can and it's definetly not my end

Elisabeth Heide · 15 August 2013 - 03:45

Well it's not down right now, but it seem to be buggy. HTML Error or smth...

Justin Williams · 2 August 2013 - 17:04

its been having issues all day.. at first i could only get to my page by going directly to twtich.tv and then logging in .. now if i try to log in it takes me straight to HTTP error... hopefully will be back up by tomorrow morning.

(ps) all of you flooding to try to get in right now is not helping fix the servers =D go make some breakfast, lunch, dinner and try again later

William Richards · 12 July 2013 - 12:56

Chatbox is still forever loading, been like that for over an hour now.

Malt Mickey · 12 July 2013 - 11:44

Chat won't load... worked this morning, won't load on any browser, tried chrome, IE and always use FF. None work for me at the moment. 7/12/13 1:44pm

Carl Gibson · 2 July 2013 - 14:58

Babette Vincenz · 2 July 2013 - 14:54

Carl Gibson · 2 July 2013 - 14:48

U Just have to sit and wait and eventually it will be back up and running the server's are obviously just down for maintenance or Technical fault!! lol I'm Hoping to be streaming soon myself if anyone would like to check it out then its "Pl4yer4Life" :P

Harry Salter · 2 July 2013 - 14:48

Was watching NGT streaming, won't load the page after I accidentally closed the tab.

Liam Major · 2 July 2013 - 14:46

Cannot access at all. Have tried using links to channels, but always say's 'Reader timed out'

James Bryan · 2 July 2013 - 14:14

I can "login" but the "login" button never changes to my username. I cannot type in the chat, but i can see the stream. I have cleared cookies, caches for all browsers and DNS cache. Still this weird problem What to do?!

J Brandon Borders · 2 July 2013 - 03:11

I cant access my account, It'll only let me stream through linked accounts but I cant access through the twitch site?

Drew Domalick · 30 June 2013 - 22:59

Twitch is down for me. Is down for others as well. I'm getting this error:
An HTTP error occurred while getting: http://www.twitch.tv/

Lud's J-r · 29 June 2013 - 11:03

twitch.tv down ? => An HTTP error occurred while getting:
http://fr.twitch.tv/

Adrian Nastasescu · 28 June 2013 - 12:36

Yup, I can confirm that Twitch.tv is down here in Canada/Montreal as well.

Sharante Dawon Brown · 23 June 2013 - 06:29

chat still down for me too hope they fix it soon cause i really like chating :(

Casper Stark · 22 June 2013 - 06:42

I hope twitchtv know that blizzard hold the rights too that popular catch phrase "Soon"

Senox Soprano · 22 June 2013 - 06:06

We were not hacked. Our web CDN made a requested change without obeying our caching ruleset, which resulted in some caching that had a (very, very) slim probability of revealing a limited amount of your account information. To be cautious, we’re changing stream keys and requiring a password reset on your next login. Finally, no payment information was exposed as we do not store any of this information.

Dagnis Straupmanis · 22 June 2013 - 06:00

It will be back soon, today probably. It's not dead or closed you idiots..

Tori Pendleton · 22 June 2013 - 05:28

Don't worry just look at this: blog.twitch.tv/2013/06/site-outage-passwords-and-stream-ke...

Alexander Murray Ellwood · 22 June 2013 - 04:39

I was hoping to watch someone stream or stream myself.. but the site's down. What a pan in the arse...

Jordan Sarkzy George · 22 June 2013 - 04:36

if someone gets my card details or gets me banned im f#!king sueing twitch

Marcus Gale · 22 June 2013 - 04:17

Pája Adál Užnic - Butt Hurt Much? Noone cares if you stream on twitch or not, TBH i would rather you leave twitch, We have enough kids on there as it is...

Pája Adál Užnic · 22 June 2013 - 02:59

I f#!king hate when sth like this happens. You guys should be proffesionals, but as I see it ur just a bunch of ppl who had an idea so they went with it and it worked, who cares if u actually know what what ur doing right?

Oh sure "get everything back online quickly. I am sorry 12+ hours is not QUICKLY. An ETA would be also nice. I mean cmon.. Get some extra staff, u got shittons of money so hire extra help to give us the ETA at least... Anyway I'm now gonna try and figure out a different page to stream on.

Sam Hendrix · 22 June 2013 - 00:51

Wow you guys need to be patient. You've got the whole Internet to waste time on, one day without Twitch Tv won't kill you.

Mizore Shirayuki · 21 June 2013 - 22:47

Heck i started streaming b4 it went down and i've been streaming for the past 3 hours, if it dont get up soon, i'll be pissed

David Aaron Pinkerton · 21 June 2013 - 21:31

I usually have Twitch running all day every day. =\ I wonder when the maintenance will be done..

Luke Goh · 21 June 2013 - 21:30

sad really, just joined, and then all of a sudden was reading someone elses messages - sad indeed, then thought ok well i cant change any of these account details, but thats still pretty crap, so far been down for a few hours and im left unimpressed

John Rupert · 21 June 2013 - 21:02

This is quite a serious issue. Was on skype with a few of the Twitch admins and they've compromised everything. This is including street addresses, postcodes, phone numbers and so on...

Chace Potter · 21 June 2013 - 21:00

specially whne ppl logged in and it went ot another acct and they could change anything on tht acct they wanted, major bad thing to happen dont think id trust oney or card info on a site that lets that happen

Martin Johnson · 21 June 2013 - 20:50

how the hell has twitch tv allowed this to happen with world wide coverage this is appalling
Streamers should think about moving from twitch if they can not keep such a site up OMG

Nick Long · 21 June 2013 - 20:47

I bluescreened yesterday while watching a stream... thought that was sketchy. Now this... hmm, what should I do, ran a scan and nothing, but wow.

Chris Laffin · 21 June 2013 - 20:33

Site will be up shortly. To fix issue, we had to reset all passwords and stream keys. More details on our blog: blog.twitch.tv/2013/06/password-and-stream-key-reset-alert/

Daveda DAVE Horrigan · 21 June 2013 - 20:25

Twitch is calling it a "display bug" but you could definitely read other people's inbox messages AND get their stream keys (basically the password that lets you stream on their channel). Plus, in the chat I was in a lot of the duplicate accounts were posting links to the same p*rn site, any accounts that got banned for that were banned under that name (so it was NOT just a display thing), and to top it all off apparently people are reporting getting trojans from all this. So yeah, something very serious went down.

Cody Malo · 21 June 2013 - 20:01

V FYI: No one is actually logged in as the wrong user, it's simply a display bug, changes can't be made to accounts, ect. Don't panic! :) (From the Twitch Twitter page).

Ark Alberto · 21 June 2013 - 19:59

if some people have logged as different user and have been able to check inboxes and setting accounts.... this is really serious

Adam Goulding · 21 June 2013 - 19:56

logged me in as another user, so I'm guessing tha'ts what their fixing

Hakim Shipments · 21 June 2013 - 19:46

i was watching colbalt after i went to eat came back and see chat wasnt there so had to refresh and then all died D:

Jess Morrison · 21 June 2013 - 19:45

Down for me and being logged in as someone else is not just a "visual" thing as I managed to get into persons inbox

Daveda DAVE Horrigan · 21 June 2013 - 19:38

There's an issue with people being logged in under other peoples' accounts. Twitch.tv says it's just a display issue but there's no telling how true that is or when everything will get fixed.

Russell Hanson-Davidson · 7 June 2013 - 18:47

I've noticed that twitch was having issues with many viewers having video studdering problems with most streamers videos. They might be down for maintenance to solve these issues.
