Have you recently been experiencing problems with your Apple TV not downloading iTunes content? If you are, then you are not the only one.
TheNextWeb has reported that Apple has confirmed that it is experiencing some issues with its iTunes service.
The problem is accompanied by an error message that reads, “this item cannot be downloaded on this network, you must be connected to a Wi-Fi network.” This problem prevents folks from downloading or streaming content to their Apple TVs.
Judging by a thread in Apple’s support forums, the issue does not seem to be very widespread. At the same time, for those that are experiencing problems, there is not much light at the end of the tunnel:
“I just spoke with Apple Support, they are currently having a problem, they don’t know what is causing it. It seems to be on all platforms and the problem only occurs when you try to download anything over 15MB. They do not have an ETA yet for when this problem gets resolved…”
In perhaps a related note, several users have claimed over the last few days that the App Store has been seeing similar problems. Apps will constantly show a download status of ‘Waiting,’ and will either take longer than usual to download, or time out completely.
It is frustrating that there is not an ETA for a fix on this yetHowever, at least it does not appear to be affecting very many users. Apple is yet to address this issue or comment on it.
