Bally Sports app crashes nationwide during NBA and NHL games

By November 4, 2021December 5th, 2021Sports app

The Bally Sports app was down for apparently everyone on a Wednesday night showing NBA and NHL games broadcast – or, which were supposed to be broadcast – on the regional sports network.

We tried it on the Bally Sports Roku app for the Los Angeles Clippers broadcast for their game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, and we encountered a consistently slow load that eventually resulted in various error messages over the course of the 30 minutes ( this has done we have to at least watch video ads on multiple trials!). Finally, the app started working… just in time for the post-game show.

And we tried this after seeing a significant number of social media users report that the app was down. Overall, it appears the app crashed for about an hour and at crucial points in some of the games.

This app (and RSN as a whole) has received a lot of reviews even when it actually works.

Here’s a sample of how Twitter users reacted to the downtime of the Bally Sports app:

Bally Sports released the following statement to Awful Annoncing:

“Our streaming provider encountered a technical issue this evening that affected Bally Sports. The issue has been fixed and all feeds are now fully functional. We apologize to our viewers for the disruption. “
