Champions League final: BT Sport stream on Youtube causes viewers to complain

Football fans turned on BT Sport after the broadcasters suffered a series of problems with their Champions League final stream.

The broadcasters, who own the rights for Champions League matches, vowed to stream Europe's showpiece event for free on Saturday night.

This meant that those who were not subscribers could watch one of the most highly-anticipated finals on these shores for some time, given both Liverpool and Tottenham were to contest it.
