Yesterday was a tough day for NFL fans who use PlayStation Vue because Sony’s live TV streaming service blacked out NFL games on FOX and we even had a few reports of CBS NFL games being blacked out. What was even stranger about that was how some markets were blacked out while others streamed the game.
Now Fox has issued a statement on the issue. Here is that statement from Fox 29 in Philidelphia that was forwarded to Cord Cutters News:
There was some confusion as to whether our game should have been blacked out on the Sony side. This was due to the pre-season games being blacked out. We have corrected the problem and all NFL games will not be blacked out going forward.
There is still no official statement from Sony on what happened but it looks like Fox is at least trying to push the blame on them. The good news is at least in Philidelphia Fox NFL games will be streamed on PlayStation Vue.
Hopefully, the handful of other markets that saw a blackout of NFL yesterday will also have a similar resolution. For now, though we will have to wait and see what happens come next Sunday.
Cord Cutters News did reach out to Sony for comment and they declined to comment on what caused the blackout.
