ITV hub down: Meghan interview sparks site crash as Britons overwhelm streaming service

Online viewers have run into technical difficulties while trying to login and register with the ITV streaming platform. Some users have encountered “registration error” messages and urged to “try again”. It comes as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s tell-all interview with the US chat show host was broadcast on ITV at 9pm.

Several ITV Hub users shared their frustrations on Twitter at missing out on seeing the dramatic intervention from Meghan and Harry. 

One user wrote: “ITV hub crashing as soon as the interview starts.

A second added: “I wish ITV Hub would stop crashing.”

A third commented: “My ITV Hub is on its last legs.”

A fourth added: Why is ITV Hub crashing let me watch Meghan Markle’s interview.”

Others directed their anger towards ITV and tweeted the broadcaster directly.

One user said: “@itvhub trying to sign up for account but it just says sorry it isn’t possible… guessing you’re seeing unprecedented demand.”

Another said:  “I’ve been trying for the last ten minutes to register for an @itvhub account but it will not let me, & won’t tell me why I can’t register.
