ESPN Live Stream Crashes During USA-Germany World Cup Match

Looks like ESPN’s WatchESPN video-streaming service was the most popular thing at the time of the USA-Germany match in the 2014 FIFA World Cup and due to the heavy user traffic, most of the people in the US were not able to access the service as soon as the match kicked off at noon Eastern time on Thursday. A representative from the ESPN stated that the sports programmer was “investigating some limited issues due to unprecedented demand.” We can all imagine the constant traffic as the viewership for the first half of the USA-Germany match peaked at more than 1.4 million concurrent viewers which increased to 1.7 million concurrent users during the match.

This number of viewers created a record for the service across all its live streams. The Portugal-Ghana match was being streamed at the same time alongside ESPN’s live Wimbledon coverage. Users viewers to true to go all bananas over the match as it was a critical situation for their national soccer team. Despite its 1-0 loss to Germany, the Americans advanced to the round of 16 after Portugal beat Ghana 2-1.

As compared to WatchESPN, Univision Communications was not having issues such as these while delivering the live stream online. Univision Communications holds the Spanish-language broadcast and Internet-streaming rights to the 2014 World Cup and for the USA vs. Germany match, it managed to deliver 750,000 live concurrent streams, thus creating a record for the company.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
