Cutting cords comes at a cost. For soccer fans the world over, this came out in a big way during the World Cup Semifinal match between England and Croatia on Wednesday.
Those who tuned into the game on YouTube TV were thrown for a loop when the broadcast of the game went down completely.

As of noon pacific time, thousands were impacted.
The reactions to this tweet from YouTube TV’s official account tells us a story of frustrated cord cutters.
They also ended up issuing an apology.
Hey everyone — sincere apologies for streaming issues with YouTube TV. The timing is horrible but we're working to be up and running again ASAP!

For what it’s worth, England took a 1-0 lead heading into halftime. A win here, and they will take on France in the final.
Let’s just hope YouTube gets its act together here soon.
