Online video site 56.com has been unavailable as of 6pm on June 3. Today at 10am 56.com's marketing director Bai Jie said a server room connection had failed and was being repaired. However, no estimated timeline for repairs was given.
Editor's note: While not confirmed, there is a good chance that 56.com is facing some of the same regulatory issues that Tudou ran into earlier this year.
