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.

If you are one of the unlucky ones to find out that your NFL game was blacked out on PlayStation Vue you have options. According to reports you can use the Fox Sports Go app on streaming players to access your game. Just log in with your PlayStation Vue login and you can stream your local NFL game through the Fox Sports Go app.
Why PlayStation Vue blacked out yesterday’s NFL games is still a mystery. We reached out to Sony for comment, but we are still waiting for a response. We are unsure if this is an ongoing or will be a one-time issue.
So what can you do to watch NFL games as a PlayStation Vue subscriber if the Fox Sports Go trick didn’t work?
The first thing you should try is an antenna. An antenna can give you the best possible image over streaming with no delay. Also once you buy it you own the antenna with no monthly fees.
If you want to see if CBS, FOX, and NBC are available in your area, check out AntennaRecommendations.com and enter your address to get an idea of what is available in your area.
The other option is to switch to a different streaming service that offers locals in your area such as Hulu and DIRECTV NOW. The best part is there is no long-term contract so if NFL games come back to PlayStation Vue you can always switch back.
