Even YouTube admits the timing is horrible that its YouTube TV service has crashed as England and Croatia clash in the 2018 FIFA World Cup semifinals. The video giant has apologized to subscribers, which number in the 750,000 range in 99 U.S. markets and who pay $40 a month, after their feed went out during the intense game today.
Hey everyone — sincere apologies for streaming issues with YouTube TV. The timing is horrible but we're working to be up and running again ASAP!

The Google-owned skinny bundle service went down in the middle of the second half in Moscow. The winner of the match goes to Sundays World Cup final against France. No world on when service would be restored.
The YouTube TV service features access to Fox Sports, which has rights to the World Cup.
