DirecTV Flubs Spice Girls Reunion

DirecTV customers in Los Angeles that were anxiously awaiting Sunday’s Spice Girls reunion in HD from the Olympic closing ceremonies were left disappointed when NBC’s signal was disrupted.

“We are looking into the cause and what we can do for customers who missed part of the closing ceremony,” DirecTV said in a statement.

Following a 30-minute outage, service was restored — after the Spice Girls reunion.

The closing ceremonies aired a second time early Monday morning on NBC.

How about free NFL Sunday Ticket to make up for the outage, DirecTV? No?

It was worth a shot.
