BT has suffered an outage of its website and app leaving BT Sport customers unable to watch three fourth-round FA Cup replay matches.

Football fans planning to watch the live games on computers through BT Sport’s online player or via mobile on the BT Sport app have been unable to watch the action, including League Two club Cambridge United facing top flight club Manchester United,

BT has said it is aware of the problem and is trying to fix it.

Disappointed fans and BT Sport customers took to Twitter to complain,


The technical difficulties come as BT Sport gears up for bidding against Sky, Al Jazeera and Discovery Communications for another three years of rights to broadcast Premier League games.

BT Sport boasts more than one million customers since paying £738m in 2012 to secure broadcast rights for 38 games every season.
