Spark Sport reaches highest viewership for Japan Vs SA

We’re really happy with how it went. Our platform, key performance measures and real-time monitoring tracked well. The feedback we’ve received through our channels and social media has been largely positive with most customers reporting a great viewing experience.
A small minority of customers reported isolated user-related device issues and our care teams worked to help them troubleshoot.
Our general advice to Spark Sport customers is to make sure the operating systems on all devices are up-to-date and any software updates are installed. In addition they should ensure that the Spark Sport app and any other related apps such as Chrome are running on the latest versions.
