Frndly TV is down with subscribers currently encountering a Service Temporarily Unavailable message when trying to access the service. While Frndly TV is aware of the issue, it currently remains unclear how long the problem will take to fix.


One of the big selling points with Frndly TV is the price. While many other streaming services charge $70 a month or more, Frndly TV offers plans starting at just $7 a month.

Right now, however, Frndly TV subscribers are finding that they cannot access any of the content available with a subscription. While the main website continues to work normally, attempting to watch something once logged in leads to a 503 error message that confirms the service is currently unavailable.


Again, Frndly TV is aware of the issue and very recently released a message on social media to confirm the outage. Unfortunately, Frndly TV was not able to provide an update on when the problem will be resolved, or provide any additional information on what is causing the issue.

Frndly TV does specifically mention Hurricane Idalia in the message, and for good reason. In spite of its low price, Frndly TV’s channel lineup does include The Weather Channel, making it a cheap option for those wanting up to date information on weather conditions.

However, with the service currently unavailable, those wanting to keep informed on the latest Hurricane Idalia developments are unable to do so.


As Frndly TV also doesn’t currently support any TV Everywhere apps, subscribers also cannot use their login details to access any network apps or websites.

Update 12:30 p.m. PDT: Frndly TV has confirmed that the outage has now been fixed, so all subscribers should find they have access to the service once again.
