Viewers Outraged As RTE Player Crashes Once Again During World Cup

Viewers Outraged As RTE Player Crashes Once Again During World Cup
By Maurice Brosnan Updated

The RTE Player failed today during the afternoon's sporting action, leaving fans tuning in for the Leinster hurling final between Galway and Kilkenny or the World Cup last 16 clash of Spain and Russia immensely frustrated.

It is the second time in less than 24 hours that an issue arose on the player. On both occasions, the official Twitter feed confirmed they were investigating the matter.

It is not the first time the service has experienced streaming issues. During the final round of Group F World Cup games, viewers were once again left disappointed as the player crashed.

In late 2009, RTE began to load the RTE player with programmes. The service combines live broadcasting with previous broadcasts from the last 21 days. They had recently advertised the service as offering viewers the possibility to watch every World Cup game on the player.

When contacted by Balls.ie, RTE said the following: "due to a technical issue earlier, RTÉ Player was temporarily unavailable. Coverage was restored as soon as possible.”

As for the sporting action, Galway and Kilkenny played out a tense draw while Russia and Spain went to penalties.
