Netflix’s promise of live streaming Love Is Blind season four reunion episode, proved to be a disaster on Sunday night. Fans of the show faced techincal issues while trying to watch their favourite series. First the airing got delayed, with Netflix promising to sort out the issues. But eventually, the live telecast had to be cancelled.
After being red-face because of the embarassing situation, Netflix apologised to the viewers and tweeted “To everyone who stayed up late, woke up early, gave up their Sunday afternoon… we are incredibly sorry that the Love is Blind Live Reunion did not turn out as we had planned. We’re filming it now and we’ll have it on Netflix as soon as humanly possible. Again, thank you and sorry.”
Meanwhile, Netflix have recorded the show and announced on Twitter, “Love Is Blind: The Reunion will be available globally at 12pm PT on April 17. Promise.”
