Netflix has issued an apology after a glitch caused the much-awaited live stream of its hit dating show, “Love is Blind” reunion to be delayed. The show involves couples getting engaged before they see each other, and fans were eagerly waiting for the reunion episode.
However, they were left frustrated when the stream failed to start at its scheduled time, with viewers in the US able to watch it 75 minutes later, while most were met with a screen that read “There’s an issue with the live stream.”
Netflix Apologizes for Technical Issues
While the technical reason for the delay is unknown, Netflix issued an apology for the inconvenience caused, saying they were “incredibly sorry.” They also announced that they would air a pre-recorded broadcast of the Love is Blind reunion at 8:00 pm BST (3:00 pm ET) on Monday.
Netflix’s Attempt at Live Programming
This was Netflix’s second attempt at streaming a live event after it successfully streamed a Chris Rock stand-up special in March this year. However, technical errors meant that the Love is Blind reunion live stream did not start at all for most people.
The decision to delay the reunion caused consternation among fans, with many taking to social media to voice their frustrations. Some fans in the UK who chose to sleep over the live stream woke up to find out that the episode was not available.
The delay in putting the episode online was seen as unacceptable by some, with others pointing out that spoilers were now being spread across social media. Some global viewers even claimed that they are no longer interested in watching the show at all.
Netflix’s Plan to Move Towards More Live Programming
The delay in the Love is Blind reunion has cast doubts on Netflix’s plan to move towards more live programming. The streaming giant has announced its intention to broadcast the Screen Actors Guild Awards from 2024, among other live programming. However, the technical issues with the Love is Blind reunion have raised concerns among viewers about the company’s ability to deliver live content.
