Need a service status page in the public space

Have spent ages this morning trying to work out why I cannot connect to other PCs / cannot login to my TV account.

Did a Google search for the issue and found a number of "Is the service up" sites reporting issues connecting to TV servers.

Came to the TV customer / support website ... not a hint of anything useful about service availability.

Came to the community ... login process was unresponsive (server did not respond in the expected timeframe).  When it did respond* I had to jump through device authorisation approvals ... then register for the community ... then work out where service information might be ... only to find none.

*In the meantime everthing started working again.

There has to be a better way of infroming users of the server status than what is (not) done presently.
