A regional publisher’s debut football broadcast was marred by technical problems which meant the match was not shown live.
Archant’s Mustard TV had been due to show Norwich City’s friendly game against West Ham United last night.
However, viewers were instead greeted with a message, pictured below, stating the channel was having “technical difficulties” when they tuned in to watch the match.
The Norwich-based station has blamed a failed satellite link for the issue.
A full recording of the game was made available for supporters to watch, and began broadcasting while the second half was still in progress.
Mustard TV says it is now concentrating its efforts on ensuring its plans to broadcast Saturday’s friendly against Brentford live will go ahead as planned.
Managing director Fiona Ryder said: “For reasons beyond our control, the live satellite link failed, but we were able to broadcast our recorded coverage whilst the match was still being played.
“We are as disappointed as all the Norwich City fans that we were unable to broadcast live and wish to apologise for that.
“All our efforts are now going into ensuring that Saturday’s game against Brentford is broadcast successfully.”
