Willow.tv Down – Bastards

Update: Willow Finally Up @ 5:30AM EST

Somebody, quickly get us our gun.

We want to shoot these Willow.tv bastards. There’s gonna be blood on the floor. Lots of it.

It’s 4:51AM on the U.S. East Coast.

And like all of you we too are desperate to watch the opening India vs Bangladesh 2011 ICC World Cup cricket match match being played at Mirpur in Bangladesh.

Folks, for the last 1 hour and 21 minutes we’ve been struggling to get Willow.tv (for which we paid $129) to load with zero success.

It’s not loading on TV (via Roku Wireless).

Nothing happens when you click on the Willow channel. Just a click sound on the Roku remote control is all that you hear.

No, it’s not loading on the PC/Web either.

Here are some of the error messages we are getting on the PC while trying to log on to Willow:

Service unavailable
Bad Request (Invalid Hostname)
Active Server Pages error ‘ASP 0126’

Include file not found

/EventMgmt/CXTvWeb/WillowMedia.asp, line 134

The include file ‘Misc/HeaderSection.asp’ was not found.

      so far streaming is fine with no hiccups.

      I am so god damn mad…. waking up at ungodly hour to watch the first ball of world cup and you get this “Service Unavailable” error. Whats irritating me the most was the huge cost it came with and no bloody service. If you are planning for a refund by some means, please let me know.

    any luck SI? Now my WII throws some garbage error… but PC works just fine. watching in my laptop.

    SearchIndia.com Responds:

    Tried 20 minutes back on TV (Roku). No luck.

    We don’t want to risk it again because we have to log out first from PC before trying TV.
