On Sunday, February 19th, Crave subscribers experienced technical issues when attempting to watch Episode six of the highly acclaimed series The Last of Us. Crave quickly issued a response, acknowledging the situation.
Upon the arrival of The Last of Us’ sixth episode, dubbed ‘Kin,’ many eager Canadian viewers jumped to Crave to start watching. However, throughout the duration of the episode, many were left frustrated. For reasons that remain unclear, Crave’s app began signing subscribers out, leaving them unable to watch the episode.
During the tail end of the last night’s episode of The Last of Us, Crave acknowledged the issues subscribers faced. “Our team is aware that some customers are experiencing technical difficulties with the Crave app, the @CraveHelp account said.

HBO’s The Last of Us has become a must-watch for many fans of the video game series and newcomers alike, so naturally, these tech issues stirred some frustration. “We understand the urgency of the matter and are working as fast as possible to resolve it,” the account went on to say.
To make matters worse, the exact same tweet was published on Sunday, February 5th. The timing of the previous tweet was nearly the same down to the minute. Anecdotally, it doesn’t appear as though there is a consistent platform that is giving audiences trouble. As of the time of writing, it’s hard to say whether the issue predominantly stems from the mobile, smart TV, or console app.
It’s also not clear what issue Crave is facing exactly. Given the popularity of The Last of Us series, it stands to reason that perhaps there is too much demand to stream the show. Given the case, it will be interesting to see whether Crave can rebound from this technical setback with future episodes.
