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.

Twitch is acting strange now... When I am trying to go to browse or followings all i get is a brown window with the twitch logo on it and it stops loading.

Got a message that one of my favorite streams is on, was able to click to the page through that, however it is not loading. Through the main site I have no subs, no chat, nothing. At least the direct page still shows I am subbed.

Definetly down right now. Was watching PhantomL0rd's streams when all of a sudden everything Twitch just cut off. I restarted the router thinking it was my internet, but its still down and every other site works fine.

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.

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.

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.

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.
