Letmewatchthis.ch/1channel.ch is currently down and throwing an 502 Bad Gateway error. We can’t access the site through IP (which is often possible when this error occurs) because Let me watch this is using Proxyshield which forbids direct ip connection. Just have to wait it out for now.
In the meantime we are compiling a list of sites to tide us over if there is ever another 1channel.ch outage. You can check them out at 1channel/LetMeWatchThis Alternatives. Leave a comment on the article if you know of any useful sites and your entry will be added to the list.

It seems like letmewatchthis.ch is having some dns issues again. The site loads perfectly accessing it on any 1channel.ch, 1channel.il, letswatchsomething.ch, letmewatchthis.ch here in North America, but is getting name lookup timeouts on Asian and European proxies.

Let me watch this (1channel.ch) is up and down tonight. It looks like their servers under alot of stress, and we’ll often see a too many connections error. This is happening because the website is experiencing high traffic volumes and/or the site is under a DoS attack. The site was the victim of a serious DNS hack last month. A rival movie site was able gain access to the dns record and point the traffic to their own site. The site has also suffered a DoS attack but those are quite common in the TV/Video streaming scene.
Either way, leave it for 1 minute and try refreshing. You should get to the site at that point though it amy be slow to navigate through.

Looks like let me watch this is down tonight. This is presumably due to high traffic volume as they have been having trouble handling http requests over the last couple of days. This could also be caused by DoS attacks which are becoming all to common in free streaming internet video scene. All of the 1channel.ch/ letmewatchthis mirrors are down right now unfortunately, so sit tight or try another site. We’ll update you with more info as it becomes available!

Let Me Watch This is unavailable through any it’s domains (1channel.ch, letmewatchthis.com, letmewatchthis.ch, letswatchsomething.ch). The site is down for maintainence and should be up and running pretty soon.
September 16 2011
1channel.ch and let me watch this are back up. Admin has stated the downtime is due technical problems and not malicious third partys.
If it should go down again, you can access a cached version of 1channel.ch at http://letswatchsomething.com/. Thanks admin for all you hard work!
1channel.ch and letmewatchthis are down still today, presumably because of the hardware issues admin cited yesterday. We’ll let you know whats going on a soon as more info available.
Once again letmewatchthis.ch is now http://1channel.ch
September 15 2011
1channel.ch is back down. Admin mentioned they were having hardware issues early and this was probably exaserbated by huge traffic volume for tonight’s primetime lineup. It may be up and down for the rest of the night.
Let me watch this is back up and running on their new domain http://1channel.ch. We are confident that this was not a government or MPAA action, it was either a malicious attack from a competitor or server maintainence. Admin has stated that they are having some “hardware issues”.
Letmewatchthis is down again completely. Even when trying to access it directly from it’s new domain http://1channel.ch, the connection times out.
Late last night they did post an announcement on the letmewatchthis.com domain that they were undergoing some maintenance so it will probably be available again soon from 1channel.ch.
We know that they’re DNS was compromised and that letmewatchthis.ch was pointed at to a competitors website. That issue seemed to have been corrected but the 1channel and LMWT was completely unconnectable today. Hopefully everything will be up and running soon, we’ll keep you updated with info as it’s available.

Let me watch this went down earlier this week. When you try to go to the website it does not reroute you to the new address, instead it points you to a black website with a hyperlink a competitor’s less functional website. Go to http://1channel.ch instead to access the new letmewatchthis mirror.
Apparently the issue is that letmewatchthis.ch has become compromised. There are no other details at this time but we will bring you updates as they come.
