This story first broke from a very good friend of ours at the Chris.Pirillo.com blog, where the Community Manager, Kat Armstrong was reportedly being blocked from accessing Ustream.tv from her ISP. What we were able to findout right now is that it is happening to some ISP in someÂ locations, but is being majorly affected to RoadRunner users. Some users wereÂ reportingÂ that when trying to watch a live video, all it shows is a black screen on the flash Ustream Player and when trying toÂ accessÂ the site, it greets users saying that the content cannot be viewed, and to contact the provider. We been also getting reports that when some users are contacting their provider, the site gets magically unblocked five minutes later. From what we know is that it is happening to to some ISPs (RoadRunner and Bell South) in some locations, and it is not a DNS issue.
