DirecTV’s NFL Sunday Ticket stream has gone down for the second week in a row. american football fans about Twitter complain that they can’t log in or get an error when they try to load the stream.

Earlier Dead spin reporter Timothy Burke says on Twitter the service started having issues at about 2pm ET and since then all streams have gone dark. DirecTV recognized the problem in a tweet, noting that it is “aware that customers will not be able to stream NFL Sunday Ticket through the app and will share more information when we restore programming.” When reached for comment, DirecTV pointed out The edge to the statement it shared on Twitter.

Sunday Ticket users experienced similar issues last week when it went down for several hours. It also didn’t help that a number of other services that broadcast live football, including YouTube TV, Sling TV, and the NFL app, were also experiencing outages at the time. Thankfully, it doesn’t look like other services are experiencing any issues this week.

After this football season, NFL Sunday Ticket will have a new home. DirecTV’s rights to Sunday Ticket expire this year, with Google and Apple reportedly in the running to secure them.

Update Sept 18, 3:30 PM ET: Updated to note that DirecTV responded to The edge with the same statement on Twitter.
