BREAKING: Is XM down?
Tags: 2, XM
Seems like there's a massive outage going on with XM right now. Reports have been coming in like crazy, and I myself in NYC haven't been able to get signal since about 12-noon.
UPDATE: Reportedly one of the satellites (SAT1) is down, and all of the repeaters are down due to a "software update." Some are saying that they were told the system is expected to be up within 2 hours, while others have heard that it will be fully restored in 2 days.
UPDATE 2: An XM Spokesman has provided this statement regarding the issue:
"We are experiencing a temporary degraded performance issue, which has affected some of our customers. We expect to return to normal service levels this evening."
UPDATE 3: Add yourself to this Frappr map so the world can keep track of your outage location (Thanks Ken!):
...and of course, more on this as info becomes available.
