I'm having the same issue but it seems to have cascaded onto my iphone and ipad. I can access the App store fine on my devices but can't download anything and it won't let me search for quite a few uncommon apps which I know are there because they show up on the itunes stores on my iTunes on my Work PC (Windows 7).
At first I thought it was a wifi/network issue - maybe my company firewall was blocking something - so I took my iPhone off wifi and on regular data...still getting same issue where I can access and see content on App Store but can't download anything.
Any help would be appreciated!
sud1987, it seems the iTunes store and App stores are down.
I cannot download anything either, and my Apple TV cannot connect.
But Apple's status page still indicates everything is fine http://www.apple.com/support/systemstatus/
If you tack onto an ancient thread about a problem which was resolved months ago you're just going to confuse yourself. As has been reported in numerous posts in these forums it's a widespread problem, which doesn't appear to be related to any security or other updates. Evidently there is an issue with Apple's servers and it's a question of waiting for them to fix it.
Re: New episodes available for download - The Blacklist, Season 2 AND Shark Tank, Season 6
WILL NOT PLAY...AGAIN. BOTH NEW EPISODES SHOW UP ON APPLE TV, but:
"THE ITUNES STORE IS CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE. TRY AGAIN LATER" ...AGAIN! (as of now: for two hours).
Can you imagine turning on "normal" TV to see a show or sporting event or BREAKING NEWS
and seeing a message that says, "Try again later".
iTunes store is UP and store PLAYS older episodes, but not the new ones.
THIS IS A BUG!
REBOOTED the Apple TV. (Unreliable crap, requiring frequent rebooting. I have 4.)
I had always hesitated to PURCHASE TV episodes and especially MOVIES for fear that I would someday NOT BE ABLE to access them...if, for example, Apple went out of business. BUT here we are and Apple is still (sort of) in business, BUT NOT AVAILABLE AND NOT RELIABLE. I WILL NOT PURCHASE ANY MORE TV OR MOVIES FROM APPLE TV.
NO WONDER "Tim" lowered the price on Apple TV.
NOTE, However, that I WAS able to download the new Blacklist episode to my iPhone (using up valuable real estate, so I'll have to delete it) AND play it through AirPlay (one of the RARE TIMES AIRPLAY WORKED).
Apple is really screwed and screwed up. TIM HAS FAILED US.
Apple died when Steve jObs was fired years ago, and now that he's dead, it will fail again.
Back to ROKU! (I have two, never had a problem with them, never had to reboot.)
And… ON TO SAMSUNG GALAXY phones! (We currently have 3 iphone 6+, not to mention past iPhone 5s's and 5's. Never 4...thought an Apple Phone was a bad idea. I was right... So MANY things don't work with the iPhone 6+ and iOS 8, and , strangely, NO ONE is reporting them to us ONLINE.)
(A friend just texted a picture from her Galaxy 5. The clarity was so outstanding, it was blinding.
Our iPhone 6 PLUS's (and 5s) make the pictures look like they have the photoshop painted "Sprayed Strokes" effect applied. Very bad.)
