Default Seacom Cable failure affecting DTSV streaming services?

There are reports that some content streaming for DSTV now and Showmax are being affected by the Seacom cable failure. Does this make any sense please MC?

Are some shows stored and streamed from your overseas server farm?

Heya Geoff, I'm having problems streaming any Dstv movie or series​ on a browser but LiveTV on Dstv site works fine. I'm on Afrihost btw. Would be interesting to hear the MC response.

Just to add that @Luke7777 isn't having problems with similar so could further be related to ISP etc.

EDIT: More about this issue in http://forum.dstv.com/showthread.php?t=38059
And a solution(?) was later posted there.

I guess you are aware of the on going battle between AH and many of its clients about poor service/connectivity/latency/etc?

Actually not at all my latency and connection is always great. I'm on an unshaped 8mb line with a 100gb package. Skype, Google Hangouts (video), Netflix, YouTube... never a problem. Perhaps I'm a lucky one.

Btw, I hope you're still not on Internet Explorer

Folks no direct impact on our services - only if you ISP is impacted.
