    Im having this problem right now. Just cant stream music in any device. My problem is, I live in an unsupported country. I just tried to play music from a vpn to see if the problem was the ip, but I still cant access it. Guess I will have to cancel my subscription.

    I can't download or stream anything in the US right now. I think Xbox Music is down.

    Same here. No luck playing music on my phone or Windows 8. This seems to happen way to often to me. I hope they can get this fixed sometime soon!

    Yep, just searched the problem, found this thread, and checked xBox music. Definitely a known, and really annoying, issue.

    I wish there was an alert we would get on our phone whenever the service goes down so we don't have to look on the internet for these issues

    ^ Try turning off the connect with Xbox music option, see if that helps. Everything seems up and running for me again right now. Watching Xbox music as I'm typing this.
