If you tuned into TBS tonight expecting to see the start of ALCS game six between the Red Sox and Rays, you instead got an episode of the Steve Harvey show.
Apparently there is a power issue that is affecting the router between Tampa and the TBS broadcast center in Atlanta.
Unbelievably, they have decided to start the game anyway, without the national TV audience. This is going to get ugly, folks.
You can try to view the game online with MLB.com here.
Update: at 8:28 pm, the game was restored…
Here is their official statement on the outage:
STATEMENT FROM TBS REGARDING ALCS GAME 6
Two circuit breakers in our Atlanta transmission operations tripped causing the master router and its backup – which are necessary to transmit any incoming feed outbound – to shut down. This impacted our live feed from being distributed to any of the other networks in the Turner portfolio and caused the delay in our coverage. Both our primary and backup routers were impacted by this problem. We apologize to baseball fans for this mishap that caused a delay in our coverage.
