Apple TV Can’t Connect to Server

Well, I just discovered the downside of iTunes Match… I’m trying to stream music from our Apple TV, but I can’t. Instead, I get the spinning wheel while it’s “Accessing iTunes Store” and then an error.

The text of the error reads:

Unable to Sign In
Apple TV can’t connect to the server at this time. Please try later.

And when I hit “OK”, it just does the same thing.

Yes, I’ve tried logging out and logging back in, but that hasn’t helped. In fact, it won’t even let me log back in because — you guessed it — it can’t connect to the server. Lovely. So now, I wait.

Update: Problem (re)solved. I waited around for awhile and also restarted our Apple TV and now it works. Not sure if restarting was the key, or if there was a server-side issue that was resolved in the interim.
