Jio Cinema Poor Streaming: Fans have to wait for four years. Then came the long awaited greatness – the football world cup. The 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar was inaugurated last Sunday, November 20. Morgan Freeman, BTS singer Jang Kook thrashed Qatar’s Al Bait Stadium in the opening match. But the Indian audience’s experience of watching that opening match was not very good. Indians had to go nuts watching the live event. Viewers have reported massive buffering issues while watching the opening ceremony of the 2022 FIFA World Cup from Jio Cinema. Spectators took to Twitter to express their outrage at the disappointing opening of the World Cup.
But the problem was not just the one seen in the opening match. Viewers also reported on Twitter that this buffering was a major problem during the Qatar vs Ecuador match.

Meanwhile, when users started complaining one by one on Twitter, the Reliance Jio authorities were shaken. According to Jio Cinema’s Twitter handle, users need to update their app once to view the streaming properly. Even after the update, however, the problem remained with the whale it was on. In other words, viewers have to face a lot of buffering problems even while watching the opening match of Qatar and Ecuador.
Only in this case, turning off is replaced by lagging & hanging

However, Qatar lost 2-0 to Ecuador in the opening match at home. In the curtain raiser ceremony of the tournament on Sunday, Ecuador’s Enner Valencia scored two goals to give the team victory.
The worst ever start for a World Cup broadcast.

Al Bait Stadium was packed with spectators in the opening match. The 60,000 capacity auditorium was packed. But the Indian audience had to face problems while watching that match. It turned out that even after asking Jio Cinema to update their app, the issue was not resolved. Now it remains to be seen if Jio Cinema has the same problem as before while watching the next matches of 2022 FIFA World Cup.
