The viewership on Facebook Watch peaked with around 136,000 live viewers. While not considered a major success, we are to believe the numbers would have been way higher if viewers did not have so many problems trying to find how to watch it.
I luckily was on my laptop and had no problems at all. People in the U.S. reported they could not watch it on their phones or had to download a separate app on the device they were using, by the time they downloaded it, the Mixed Match Challenge was already over.
Here are some of the comments from fans having problems trying to tune-in:
Who wins?….like a lot of people I can’t see it 😒 pic.twitter.com/QyoWtWvfFT

I missed a lot of it between buffering, freezing and then going all black. I got back in at the end when Mattie taped. Who was the woman on commentary?

After the amount of time it took to figure out how to watch it on my TV, 2 matches is the least they could do. Also they could never partner with Facebook again, that’d be an improvement.

Only available in USA, too bad, I’m sure a lot of people will be upset.
