The NFL has lost one of its most loyal subscribers, as the league announced Monday that the network suffered a data outage Monday night.
The NFL has said that its Network Operations Center (NOC) is experiencing a “network connectivity issue” affecting approximately 1.4 million NFL subscribers.NOC spokeswoman Michelle Krasno said the network outage was caused by a “system failure” and that NOC was working to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.
The NOC has had to take measures to improve its network performance during the storm, including reducing the number of active customers, and was working with customers to ensure they were able to continue using their networks.
The National Weather Service issued a tornado watch for parts of Missouri and Kansas on Monday morning, which could cause heavy downpours and power outages.
The NOC said it was still working to determine if the system outage impacted millions of subscribers.
The National Weather Agency is also monitoring a storm moving toward the Midwest that is expected to produce gusty winds and damaging hail.
