Twitter is flooded with user complaints about not being able to watch the World Cup match, with many users sharing photos of their smartphones, television sets, and computers showing the Hotstar error message. The stream starts working sometimes and then goes down again. Hotstar’s official support account claimed that it was a temporary issue and has been resolved, however the service’ subscribers are still complaining on Twitter.
“Hi! Apologies for this. There was a temporary issue and it was resolved within few seconds. You may check again now,” Hotstar support account wrote in a reply to a user. The account is sharing the same reply to everyone complaining on Twitter.
When accessing the India vs New Zealand World Cup match, the streaming service shows, “LIVE Streaming Interrupted due to technical failure. We deeply regret the inconvenience.
