Roku streaming players and Roku TVs were affected by a massive outage Tuesday, with numerous users reporting on Twitter that they couldn’t load Netflix, YouTube and other channels on their devices.

Even stranger was what they got to see instead: a warning from the FBI, informing them that the channel in question had been removed “due to repeated claims of copyright infringement.”

Other channels affected by the outage include FoxSportsGo and FandangoNow, according to user reports on Twitter.

Roku acknowledged the outage on its website, saying that it was “investigating and working toward a quick resolution.” On Twitter, the company’s support team suggested that affected users may have to install a system update to get their streaming device or Roku TV working again:
