Baseball fans were not happy when PlayStation Vue’s live streaming crashed during Tuesday’s Cubs-Dodgers NLCS game.
Have you ever been watching a big game and the cable goes out? That’s something you wouldn’t wish on your worst enemy. True fans of a sport hate missing a second of live action, especially during playoffs.
Some baseball fans got a taste of what that was like on Tuesday night during the Cubs-Dodgers NLCS game. PlayStation Vue, a popular live-streaming TV app on PlayStation, crashed during the game on Tuesday and baseball fans went nuts.
The Chicago Cubs and Los Angeles Dodgers both have die-hard fan bases, so you would have to assume that the meltdown because of this crash had to be immense, and it was.
With the teams tied 1-1 in the series, the Cubs hit the road to face off against the Dodgers in what seemed to be a must-win Game 3. Losing and going down 2-1 in the series with another matchup at Dodger Stadium in Game 4 wouldn’t be an ideal situation.
Right before the Dodgers scored to go up 1-0 in the bottom of the third inning, the popular streaming service on PlayStation became a little less popular in some people’s eyes. FOX Sports 1 on the app had crashed and watching the game went from an enjoyable experience to an absolute nightmare.
Chicago might be the overwhelming favorite to win the World Series, but the Dodgers are playing the Cubs tough through two-plus games. Fans of the sport would love to watch an incredible postseason matchup like this and, if you watched on live TV and not Vue, you were in luck.
Here are some of the best Twitter reactions to the PlayStation Vue crash during the Cubs-Dodgers game:
Not sure what's up with @FS1 on @PlayStation Vue. Would really like to watch the Cubs…
