Super Bowl OTT feeds hit by glitches

PlayStation Vue, Hulu hit by issues during game; latency also a problem

Last night’s Super Bowl LII did not go off completely glitch-free for some internet TV providers.

Two virtual MVPDs – Hulu and PlayStation Vue – faced some technical issues during the game, reports Multichannel.

Dan Rayburn, an expert in the streaming media world and a consultant and principal analyst at Frost & Sullivan, noted via Twitter that Sony PlayStation Vue was hit with “major problems” Sunday night in multiple cities.

Hulu confirmed on Twitter that its service had experienced a “technical issue” towards the end of the game.

Rayburn also tweeted that some OTT feeds were being significantly hit by latency, with the official livefeed running around two minutes behind the broadcast.
