Some Comcast Subs Had Trouble Scoring With NFL RedZone Last Sunday


Some Comcast subscribers to NFL RedZone encountered difficulties watching the scoring service during the first Sunday of the pro football season. The MSO said the problems were few and far between and rectified during the Sept. 12 telecast.
A number of subscribers, largely in the Mid-Atlantic states, indicated that on Sunday the NFL Network channel -- which shows highlights, stats and all of the plays inside the 20-yard-line, the so-called red zone -- in some cases suffered from pixelation issues, switches between the standard- and high-definition versions of the ad hoc channel, or that the service remained black.
That's according to entries from subs collated on DSLReports.
An NFL Network spokesman said the service didn't have any technical issues nationally.
A Comcast spokeswoman said: "A few isolated technical issues were reported at the onset of this past week's RedZone coverage and our technical teams quickly worked to immediately resolve the issue. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused customers."
