Delay in Netflix Streaming
Netflix’s “Love Is Blind:” appeared to have technical issues. The Live Reunion,” which was scheduled to air live on Sunday at 7 p.m. CT. Downdetector, which tracks website outages based on user reports and social media posts, began receiving reports of Netflix error messages as viewers rushed to watch.
Although only the live event appeared to be affected, thousands of people complained about issues with “video streaming.” Twitter users also started making comments about the obvious problems.
On Twitter shortly after 7 p.m., Netflix acknowledged the delay, writing that “Love is… late” and that “Love Is Blind: At 7:15 p.m. CT, “The Live Reunion” would begin. The post was retweeted by Nick and Vanessa Lachey, the popular series’ hosts.
Netflix did not announce on Twitter that the Love is Blind Live Reunion would not be broadcast live until just before 8:30 p.m. on Sunday, writing, “We are incredibly sorry that the Love is Blind Live Reunion did not turn out as we had planned.” We are currently filming it, and as soon as we can, we will upload it to Netflix. Once more, thank you and sorry.”
The gathering may be live for those going to a Hollywood survey party, Nexstar’s KTLA affirmed. When it will be available on Netflix is unknown. Last month, Chris Rock’s comedy special “Selective Outrage,” Netflix’s first live event, was streamed online. Variety claims that there were no widespread streaming issues associated with that event.
