I think you're missing the point.  This is about testing the platform works at scale not that people know how to use a web browser. 

Perhaps going with the same supplier that's failed to deliver a stable system for a few hundred concurrent users to deliver one for tens of thousands wasn't the winning decision we all might imagine it to be.

This will be showing them what’s wrong. Then they will fix it. If they don’t by all means get angry then.

Had all the various error codes everyone has mentioned.  The latest I’ve had is to get into the Watch Live page and insted of the picture and start arrow, I’ve just got an empty black box with red outline.  

Works fine with the app on my iphone, but can’t link that to my LG smart tv, so not good

I haven't paid for it - this was predictable.

I'd bet against any IT fix happening in a couple of days however particularly on a platform that's struggled for a long time.

Exactly the same on my macbook

I've just gone on the app and where do I go on there? Robins TV. Live stream? Well that doesn't work either

Im also on a Mac - tried both Chrome andF Firefox. I think we are meant to be streaming on the "Watch Live" button

Not after fixes they put in place after tonight 

I respect the relentless optimism but it's misplaced.  If they can't even get login to work then they've missed their opportunity to actually test the streaming platform works at scale.

Fixes like that are rarely just turning it off and on again.

Epic meltdown due here Saturday. I'll be in the middle of it. I'm struggling to understand what they've upgraded. The css? It seems like the backend was built with a couple of coathangers and some gaffa tape. There's nothing like being on the bleding edge of technology...

(Now how to sub to the official blackburn rovers stream?)

The thing I find hard to credit is that they seem to have just picked a supplier based on price and what other clubs do.  There are plenty of streaming platforms that work at vast scale without issues (youtube, twitch, vimeo... so on) that would make this much lower risk.  They've long needed to employ someone who knows IT rather than letting "commercial" people buy it.

Couldn’t log on my laptop after lots of attempts. So tried my iPad and that was ok. So tried My laptop a little later, it would then allow me to enter my voucher number. After doing that, it now tells me that my voucher number has already been used. So it looks like I have to watch it from my iPad. I have emailed them.
