Bugs spoil the Champions League resumption party this Tuesday evening. Co-broadcaster of PSG-Juventus with RMC Sport, Canal + has encountered numerous technical problems on its MyCanal application since the start of the match.
The Subscriber Information Twitter account acknowledged that these bugs were due to too many logins on the app during the meeting: “Faced with heavy traffic, you may encounter difficulties connecting to MyCanal. We invite you to wait a few minutes to avoid too many simultaneous connections. We apologize for the inconvenience caused. »
Users who connected before the match would have no problems, while those who arrived around kick-off and after the event would encounter more difficulties.
During the return to the set, at halftime of PSG-Juventus, Hervé Mathoux also apologized to the many subscribers who failed to connect, while specifying that the technical teams of the encrypted channel were doing everything to fix it.
In the evening, seeking explanations for these bugs, Canal + studied the trail of a cyberattack and therefore did not rule out the possibility of having been hacked.
In September 2018, RMC Sport also experienced a major bug on the first day of the Champions League. It then broadcast the Liverpool-PSG meeting exclusively.
