One of the biggest sporting event in the world — The FIFA World Cup — kicked off on Sunday with a glittering opening ceremony. The likes of Morgan Freeman, BTS’ singer Jung Kook enthralled the capacity crowd at Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor, Qatar. However, the fans in India had a problem in streaming the opening ceremony as Jio Cinema kept on buffering. Many users then took to Twitter to slam the platform for not having the best possible streaming for the biggest event in the world.
The problem was not just restricted to the opening ceremony, with fans also having difficulty in watching the match between Qatar and Ecuador.
Soon after, fans started complaining on Twitter, the official handle of Jio Cinema tweeted, saying that the users are required to update the app in order to have the best possible streaming. However, even after updating, the problem continued for the users.

The worst ever start for a World Cup broadcast.

The opening match of the FIFA World Cup was contested between Qatar and Ecuador, and it was the latter that came out on top, winning the contest 2-0.
Qatar became the first home team to lose their opening World Cup match as Ecuador cruised to a 2-0 victory over the hosts, with Enner Valencia scoring twice in the tournament curtain-raiser on Sunday.
Asian champions Qatar enjoyed the backing of the majority of the crowd at the 60,000-capacity Al Bayt Stadium, but could not follow a glitzy opening ceremony with a statement performance. Ecuador thought they had made a dream start when they silenced the home fans as Valencia headed in, only for the goal to be ruled out by VAR for an offside in the build-up.
