You are currently viewing Stream fails: Fan trouble at the DFB-Schützenfest – the station reacts in the game

Düsseldorf –

Fortunately it was just a test match … While the DFB-Elf dismantled Latvia with one goal after the other (7: 1) at the EM dress rehearsal on Monday evening (June 7th), many fans looked into the tube. The RTL internet stream was badly stuck!

  • Germany beats Latvia 7-1 in the friendly
  • Problems with the internet stream from RTL
  • Fan angry, broadcaster apologizes

If you wanted to follow the game of Jogi’s boys over the Internet, you had to resort to TVNOW, where all streams of the RTL media group (including RTL II and VOX) are available. However, the provider had technical problems on Monday evening – which was particularly annoying for football fans in view of the international match broadcast on RTL.

TVNOW apologizes for problems

There were angry reactions online. Countless viewers who wanted to see Germany’s last test before the start of the European Championship against France (June 15) vented their anger. Especially from the 30th to the 60th minute, the stream went on strike again and again.

TVNOW apologized during the game: “Hello everyone, we can understand your displeasure about the failure of our live streams. We are very sorry. The colleagues are working flat out to fix it. “

Lothar Matthäus predicted Germany’s Kanter victory

With success. In the final phase everything was stable. Before that, the portal “” had received thousands of reports. In the past, RTL broadcasts via TVNOW were much more stable.

As in the 1-1 draw against Denmark, record national player Lothar Matthäus (60) was in action as an expert. And he showed a good feeling for the result. The world champion from 1990 predicted a 6-0 for the DFB-Elf and was very close to the 7-1 final score.

For the EM, which starts on Friday, the TVNOW anger does not play a role: Then, as usual, RTL and ZDF (as well as Telecom’s streaming service Magenta-TV) have the rights. (mze)
