Bally Sports app crashes nationwide during NBA and NHL games

The Bally Sports app was down for everyone on a Wednesday night that featured NBA and NHL games being broadcast – or meant 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 ultimately resulted in various error messages over the 30 minutes (this did we have to watch video ads on multiple trials, at least!). 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 seems like 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 is a sample of the reaction of Twitter users to the failure of the Bally Sports app:

Bally Sports posted 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. “
