Sports streaming platforms have fallen victim to their own success. UOKiK wants explanations

Polsat Box Go customers were disappointed on Tuesday, September 13. Right before the second leg of the UEFA Champions League, viewers complained that streaming has stopped working. As a result, they could not watch the performance of Robert Lewandowski, who came to Munich to play against Bayern with the new club (FC Barcelona) (he spent eight years there, scoring 344 goals). They missed the exciting match of two leading clubs with the participation of a Pole, so the anger is understood.

“Cash downloaded and I’m watching a black screen,” complained one of the fans on Twitter. Polsat replied laconically: “We are sorry for the inconvenience. We are verifying the situation.” Polsat Box Go customers also complained a few days earlier about failures during matches of the 1st football league (e.g. a match between ŁKS Łódź and Termalica Nieciecza).

Subscribers of Canal + Online also had problems, who wanted to watch the first round of the Champions League on Wednesday and Tuesday (September 6 and 7) in the application on the TV or computer and mobile devices. In the case of Canal +, the failure from a week ago is not the first recently. In early September, the company admitted that it was “seeing problems with the operation of Canal + online” and announced that it had forwarded the reports to the technical department. Earlier, on August 13, many fans could not watch Robert Lewandowski’s debut in Barcelona, ​​because the Canal + application refused to obey (some customers could not even log in, and the registration did not work).
