One X user compared the experience to Netflix's live "Love Is Blind" reunion experiment, which went awry due to technical difficulties. The streamer has not hosted a live reunion since.

Trouble seemed to continue for some users as the night wore on. Starting into the game, users reported their Paramount+ was “crashing constantly.”

Right before kickoff, X user @nikkihodum wrote, “Never thought I would be angry my paramount + isn’t working & I cant watch the superbowl but here we are.” Hodum told problems resolved after she unplugged her Apple TV box.

Lucy Huber told her Paramount+ is "still glitching" but her family is watching anyway, without any other streaming option.

Ryan Moyer told he has done "a lot of refreshing and restarting the Paramount+ stream," which "went out once before kickoff" and twice since the game began. "Luckily, it restarted easily each time," he said.

Some were having trouble watching the Super Bowl halftime show.

Online sentiment can best be described by one tweet: "Tonight is NOT the time to keep getting error codes when trying to watch a live event," one X user wrote.
