- Socceroos fans were angry with Channel 10
- Streaming issues hit World Cup qualifier
- Australia are taking on Bangladesh in Melbourne
Socceroos fans have lashed Channel 10 after the broadcaster admitted ‘issues’ meant viewers were unable to watch Australia’s clash with Bangladesh online.
Beginning their World Cup qualifying campaign in Melbourne, the Socceroos got off to a fast start after Leicester City defender Harry Souttar found the net after just four minutes from a Craig Goodwin delivery.
But some supporters missed the goal after encountering problems with the broadcaster’s stream of the game online.
‘Can’t watch Socceroos – error code 5000,’ one fan posted on Paramount’s Twitter account.

The broadcaster replied: ‘We are aware of a current issue impacting our stream on web browsers. We are looking into it, but in the meantime we suggest you tune in from a different device. We are sorry for any inconvenience this has caused.’
Another fan said: ‘What is the error code 5000? Because there is no mention of it on the troubleshooting page.’
