Bayern-PSG viewers on Canal + were treated to a surprising sequence at the start of the second half of the Champions League round of 16 second leg on Wednesday evening. We play the 47th minute of the match at the Allianz Arena, when football fans in front of their televisions were treated to a strange soundtrack in full live. An ambient sound, halfway between elevator music, a switchboard waiting jingle or the soundtrack of an erotic film for some.
The musical interruption did not last very long, but was well noticed by viewers. On social networks, many Internet users have joked or wondered about the origin of this cut. At first, the chain played the card of irony by publishing two tweets, one with piano keyboard and musical note emojis, the other where he summons the commentator of the meeting, Paul Tchoukriel , to cut his account from the Spotify music streaming platform.
Contacted Thursday morning, Canal + provided Parisian-Today in France with the reason for this sound superposition. “The host broadcaster (German broadcaster DAZN) who produces the international signal of the match for all broadcasters and delivers the feed to us has sent in the comments the music on hold of the post-match conference which was in preparation for 10:02 p.m. “, tells us the channel.

“Our technicians immediately reacted and switched to our private means, continues Canal +. The incident lasted 34 seconds. Note that the other broadcaster of the Champions League in France, RMC Sport, did not encounter this problem during its retransmission. And that a spin on social media does not show similar remarks abroad.
Beyond this musical interlude, Canal + subscribers had to face problems following the meeting on the myCANAL broadcasting platform. “Our teams are mobilized to resolve this anomaly as soon as possible. We apologize for the inconvenience caused ”, explained the chain in the evening before fixing this problem before the end of the match.
