Over the weekend some PlayStation Vue subscribers found that their NFL games, especially on Fox, ended up being blacked out. The blackout left many subscribers wondering what was happening and if they would have access to NFL games this year on PlayStation Vue.
Sony has yet to release a statement but Fox yesterday 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.
Here is the message some PlayStation Vue subscribers are finding today:
Sounds like FOX was completely to blame imo. Sony offering me a PSN Wallet credit (basically a bill credit) as a sign of good faith tho pic.twitter.com/i9jD5AG2hK

Make sure to check your PlayStation Vue app to see if you can get a credit for the blackout.
Cord Cutters News did reach out to Sony for comment and they declined to comment on what caused the blackout.
