And here’s a discussion thread on Reddit:

As of now, there’s no official word from the operators of the service. In fact, the TV Muse Twitter and Facebook accounts have been dormant for quite some time now. So we aren’t sure whether there are legal issues or some technical problems.

Rest assured, we’re keeping a tab on the matter, and will let you know as and when there’s a news worthy development on the matter. Meanwhile, do let us know your thoughts on this ongoing TvMuse outage.
