Vidgo and its subscribers have been dealing with a major outage for some time now. While Vidgo does continue to work on a fix for the problem, and says “solid progress” has been made, the company is currently unable to provide any firm confirmation on when full service will be restored.
The Vidgo outage surfaced at the end of September. At the time, it looked as though the outage would only last over a weekend. Almost two weeks later and Vidgo subscribers are still impacted by an issue that’s been attributed to a dispute with a vendor.
One affected customer has shared an update from Vidgo with Streaming Better, confirming the situation is still ongoing. According to Vidgo, “We have been working in good faith with the vendor involved and believe we are making solid progress.”
At the same time, the company was unable to provide any confirmation on when the outage will end, stating “While we do not have a specific timeline, we will continue to share new information and updates.”
The latest update goes on to explain that Vidgo has now started issuing credits to affected customer accounts. When the outage first surfaced, Vidgo said it would provide customers with a credit equal to two weeks of service. We assume this is the credit that’s now started rolling out. Vidgo also said that it is considering offering additional credits in the future as well.
“For all customers affected, we have begun applying the credits to your accounts and we may provide additional credits as we evaluate the situation.“

While none of this is likely to be the news Vidgo customers have been waiting to hear, Vidgo does seem adamant that the issue will be resolved, eventually. In the meantime, subscribers should keep an eye on their accounts for their statement credit.
