National Football League fans were left in the dark for about half an hour on Sunday as what was described as technical issues at CBS pulled the game away.
The outage occurred around 3 p.m. EST, and affected viewers using Verizon FioS, DirecTV, Altice / Optimum, Xfinity and Spectrum in New York, New Jersey and Long Island.
“There are technical difficulties at WCBS affecting parts of the New York City area,” a WCBS spokesperson said early in the second quarter. “We are aware and are working on a solution.”
The outages were somewhat sporadic, according to a social media post. Verizon Fios customers missed the Chiefs’ first score reader before the network emerged. Then, coverage declined for Altice / Optimum viewers.
Although TV coverage was affected, fans could still bring the game online using apps from CBS Sports, Yahoo, NFL, CBS All-Access or ESPN Deportes.
