Many DirecTV Now viewers tweeted that they were having service issues during Monday night’s College Football Playoff games on ESPN. This caused some fans to miss the thrilling conclusion to the Oklahoma-Georgia Rose Bowl that went into double overtime, as well as the start of the Alabama-Clemson Sugar Bowl.

Viewers tweeted videos and photos showing their DirecTV Now streaming service not working during the games, and it appears some experienced outages of 30 minutes.

The DirecTV Now Help account on Twitter responded to a displeased College Football Playoff viewer, and told the viewer to log out of the service for five minutes and log back in (and it’s unclear if this even fixed things for viewers).

Then again, viewers with any service still missed a goal line play in the Sugar Bowl if they didn’t find their remote in time to make the switch from ESPN2 to ESPN.
