BBC, ITV and Sky slammed for ‘unwatchable’ FA Cup final marred by glitches

Football fans have blasted the BBC, ITV, and Sky for their ‘unwatchable’ coverage of the FA Cup Final between Chelsea and Liverpool.

Technical issues including glitches, jump cuts and poor picture quality have left television viewers feeling dissatisfied. With Jurgen Klopp's side still chasing an unprecedented ‘Quadruple’ triumph, the Reds’ contest against Thomas Tuchel’s Blues has arguably been one of the most anticipated FA Cup Finals in recent memory.

Unfortunately, it appears the viewing experience has not matched the quality on display from both sides, particularly for customers who chose to watch the match on Sky Glass. And supporters from both sides have not held back in their criticism on social media.

“Unwatchable” blasted one angry customer, who also solidified his frustration by tagging the Sky Help Team Twitter page. “What is going on with your feed for the FA Cup Final! I couldn’t even watch the Tyson fight because you do not do pay per view and I can’t even watch my local news on ITV.” Another angry fan posted, alongside a picture of a fuzzy picture of the FA Cup coverage.

“Reason number 6754 not to get Sky Glass – on FA Cup Final day too,” one Chelsea fan tweeted alongside a picture of a heavily pixelated screen. Many other supporters have also directed their anger at the BBC and ITV for their own coverage of the final.

Another fan blasted the coverage of both ITV and the BBC saying, 'Who on earth is responsible for the broadcasting at Wembley? Both BBC and ITV feeds buffering like a YouTube video on dial up internet #FACupfinal.'

Sky did react to the media storm by reaching out to angry fans individually, as well as a separate post on their Twitter page. “Our teams are aware of this issue and are investigating to get resolved asap, we're really sorry for the inconvenience this causes,” a statement secreted on the Sky Twitter page read.
