Ferocious Matildas fans say Channel Seven’s streaming service crashes at worst possible World Cup opener
Football fans have taken to Twitter to express their frustration after experiencing problems with Channel Seven’s streaming service during Australia’s World Cup opener.
Sevens won the broadcast rights for the women’s tournament – co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand – with the network showing several high profile games throughout the competition.
As such, with Seven broadcasting Australia’s opening match against Ireland in Sydney, the Matildas will be looking to get off to a winning start despite being without Sam Kerr – who injured his calf in training on Wednesday.
But many fans claimed they were unable to watch the game due to problems with Seven’s streaming platform, 7 Plus.
‘Why isn’t your app working!!!’ A fan wrote. ‘Channel 7… geez!!’

Some viewers seem to have trouble watching the game on streaming platforms
Another said: ‘Geez, if anyone could have predicted that millions of people would want to use the 7 Plus at the same time tonight…’
‘Your platform @7plus?’ A third fan said. ‘3 different browsers giving 3 different error messages saying why you can’t broadcast.’
One fan saw the funny side, though.
‘7 plus crashed watching the Matildas’ the fan said with a laughing emoji.
Channel Seven has denied there was a problem with its streaming service and insisted it was a case of ‘user error’.
