Fans worldwide have been waiting for the FIFA World Cup 2022 to begin and the day finally came. However, as Jio Cinema is the streaming partner for this year’s world cup, it really managed to upset users because of the streaming issues on the platform, be it excessive buffering, failure in loading the stream and more.
Users took to Twitter to express their disappointment, complaining of buffering issues even though they are having a good-quality internet. Twitter is flooded with fans reacting to the poor streaming, thereby saying that their world cup viewing experience is ruined. Jio was quick to acknowledge the issue and stated on Twitter itself that their team is working hard to solve the buffering issues, alongside a TikTok video of a worker covered in the dirt working tirelessly with machinery.
One user wrote, “… At 300 Mbps broadband connection, the picture is getting stuck again & again. It is a very bad experience”. Another user tweeted, “Hey don’t be ridiculous and put this on fans. The stream is buffering every 3 seconds on the browser and every 10-15 sec of a mobile app (I have high-speed broadband before you ask me). Post-opening ceremony! Are you prepared to handle an important match load?”

Jio Cinema’s Twitter account also told users to update their app to give users a ’great experience’ and apologised for the inconvenience. It seems like Jio’s servers couldn’t handle such a load and ultimately failed to provide a smooth streaming experience. However, as Jio has upgraded the Jio Cinema app, one should have no issues streaming the match from today.
