An uninterrupted game of football is top priority if you’re watching the FIFA World Cup.

So if you’re dependent on Jio Cinema to watch the madness in Qatar unfold, you must put your thinking cap on. The popular streaming service from the Ambani stable has triggered a bunch of complaints among football buffs.


SmartTV loyalists now probably have an axe to grind against Jio Cinema for being unable to enjoy the opening game between Qatar and Ecuador without streaming bottlenecks.

While Enner Valancia made light work of the hosts with a brace, football loyalists in India slammed the poor quality streaming, which served as a bummer for most stretches of the game.

Apart from Sports18 (DTH channel), Jio Cinema is the only OTT platform airing the FIFA World Cup.

Now that the India viewers had no other option, the reactions came in thick and fast on social media.
