Fury will put his WBC belt on the line when he faces Whyte at at a sold-out Wembley Stadium tonight. For the first time since 1993, two Britons are to battle it out for a heavyweight title in the UK.
But frustrated boxing fans have taken to social media to complain to Virgin Media that in spite of paying to watch the historic fight, all that they can see is a black screen.
Twitter user katherineic fumed: “There is just a black screen after paying for it! On mine and others on Virgin”.
Mrfwon raged: “Been like this since just after 7pm. Rebooted router and boxes multiple times.
“Not acceptable and already missed loads of bouts! Sort it out, and quickly please!!!”
Fellow Twitter user H_J_Lodson chimed in: “Same issue! Didn’t pay £25 for a black screen. Please fix it @virginmedia”.
Some fans have shared an error message which appears on their screens which reads: “We are currently experiencing technical difficulties and cannot bring you this channel at the present time.”
Mdi2929 had the same problem, they asked: “What is happening?”
Twitter user di_vest suggested resetting Virgin for live sport boxing to work, adding instructions on how to do so.
They recommended that if that does not work to try turning the Virgin box off by the button at the back, leaving it for a minute and then switching it back on.
Express.co.uk has attempted to contact Virgin Media.
