On Wednesday night, England played against Denmark in The 2020 UEFA European Football Championship, in the hopes of reaching their first-ever European Championship final. The semi-final kicked off on ITV at 8pm and will finish at around 9.50pm, depending on extra time. However, not all fans were able to watch the football match smoothly, as some viewers watching on Apple TV suffered “technical difficulties”.


Taking to social media to apologise to those not able to watch the semi-final, ITV said: “Unfortunately we’re experiencing issues with Apple TV.

“Please bear with us while we fix this. Apologies for any inconvenience.”

However, not all fans were so forgiving as many were quick to respond to ITV on Twitter, they shared their outrage at the blunder.

One fan raged: “Absolutely garbage. Already bad enough with low-quality streams and now the app keeps crashing out. Shouldn’t be allowed to have the rights to the football as you’re doing it a disservice.” (sic)

Another penned: “What kind of shocking coding is behind this app that it crashes with the slightest problem with the video stream!? It’s an absolute embarrassment for ITV and its advertisers should be having words with them.

A third wrote: “Everything everyone else is saying… What a complete shambles, ITV should not be allowed the rights to these major comps when their tech is clearly not up to the job.
