FIFA World Cup: Jio Cinema ruined 1st match for Indian viewers​

JIO Cinema glitches



Jio Cinema Glitches: People have only one option to watch FIFA World Cup in India, which is Jio Cinema and sports 18. People thought that when Reliance got the rights to show the FIFA World Cup, it would probably be shown on the Voot app. People also took a Voot subscription of Rs.600. But Reliance has decided to show the FIFA Cup for free on its newly launched OTT platform Jio Cinema. But when the telecast of the match started today, the viewers had to face many problems on Jio Cinema, after which the viewers on social media started sharing the problems they were facing with Jio Cinema.
PATHETIC buffering and lag issues with @FIFAWorldCup coverage on @JioCinema. Smart TV worst affected; mobile a touch better. Thank god India isn't playing or I'd have broken the TV in frustration and sent the bill to Waqf board on whose land the Ambanis have built Antilia. WDTT

Jio Cinema FIFA World Cup Telecast glitches​

The streaming of the match stopped for a long time on Jio Cinema. Even if it went on for a while, a lot of glitches started appearing. Today, during the Qatar-Ecuador match, the Indian audience witnessed long buffering, which completely destroyed the excitement of the match.
It seemed as if Jio Cinema was not tested beforehand or Jio Cinema’s streaming server was not able to handle so many viewers.

Not one or two, but all the Indian viewers faced this problem. There was a lot of long buffering happening even on good internet.
Later at 8:52 PM Jio Cinema asked to update the app

Dear @JioCinema fans,

We are continuously working to give you a great experience. Please upgrade your app to the latest version to enjoy #FIFAWorldCupQatar2022. Apologies for any inconvenience.#FIFAWorldCup #FIFAWConJioCinema #FIFAWConSports18 | @FIFAWorldCup

as already pointed out. maybe giving away free access caused too much stress on their servers causing the outage. what is the experience of this company with prior streaming service of other events? did they have the required experience and people or was it a new venture?

They have a free app called Jio TV/Cinema and a subscription app called Voot. The subscription app is excellent and works well. The free app may not have the server capacity to handle huge traffic. They couldn't anticipate new found football craze in India also maybe some international traffic also diverted because it has free access.
