NFL game not on FOX

I get the Fox channel. The guide has the Cardinals game listed but when I turn it on its wrestling. What’s up with that?

I live in the Pittsburgh area so eastern time zone. My husband asked me to turn it on and it was after 5:00pm but wrestling was on. We checked back a couple times but it was still on. We eventually gave up. I should’ve called Comcast but honestly I didn’t feel like talking to them today lol.

Games blacked out has nothing to do with Comcast, you would’ve been wasting your time. It would’ve been the same regardless of provider

Were you watching WPGH? The online schedule at the WPGH website says the Giants-Seahwaks game should have been on at 5:00, so you can't really blame Comcast on this one. It's possible that the station switched to one of the early games at the last minute (maybe it didn't want to air a game on at the same time as the Eagles-Packers game on CBS), but the website I go to that would have this information crashed this morning, so I can't check it to see what happened.

Where do you live (what ZIP code), and what time did you turn it on? WWE's "Tribute to the Troops" show aired on Fox, either in the hour before today's NFL game (if you live somewhere that got a 4:05 Eastern game) or in the hour after it (if you live somewhere that got a 1:00 Eastern game). Since you were expecting the Cardinals game, which started at 4:05 Eastern, the wrestling should have been on from 3 to 4 Eastern (or noon to 1 Pacific, if you live out west).

@CCAndrew, NFL games for the most part aren't "blacked out" any more; besides, the game in question wasn't being played in Pittsburgh. I am assuming the problem is more with the listing than the fact that a particular game was aired.

The point was meant to be it’s not a Comcast issue, its either changes were made too soon for guide changes to be implemented or the the local affiliate broadcasted something different. It wouldn’t have mattered the provider.

Again, and pardon me for asking, but what is your ZIP code? A number of people who were watching WPGH said that the Cardinals-Seahawks game was on from 4 to 7 Eastern. The only station in that part of the country that appears to have been airing a 1:00 game is in Wheeling.

I did not have a 1PM game in York-Lancaster area on WPMT.  I think the Pitt schedule juggling act may have something to do with it but not sure. They have Pitt on now that was moved.  5PM eastern. People go nuts here when Philly and Baltimore play at the same time and knocks Pitt off.
