The Super Bowl Breaks a Streaming Record

[F]airly predictably, there were problems with this year’s stream: […] A CBS Twitter rep initially diagnosed the problem as specific to third-generation versions of the [Apple TV], but the problems appeared to be more widespread than that (I’ve got a fourth-gen version of the box — the newest one — and had no luck as well). The good news, for both CBS and for streamers, is that appeared to be the only major glitch during the game. Once CBS and/or Apple got the app working, about 20 minutes after kick-off, I streamed the game without incident, and the picture looked pretty darn good for the rest of the game. – Peter Kafka, Re/code
