Default NBC or our local station?

The Super Bowl broadcast froze for several minutes and we missed the 2nd quarter Eagles score. Broadcast finally started working during a commercial, but has been flaky ever since.

Is it just our local NBC affiliate or is this a problem in the whole NBC network?

Ours blacked out for a short period as well. On the OTA as well, only because it’s clearer than satellite.

If those seeing the screen freeze or pixelate on NBC have Spectrum cable......Spectrum is the problem. A tech told me to expect some viewing problems during the Super Bowl and on other NBC programs and that we should ask for a days credit when it happens. It is not a country wide problem but a regional one.

I just got a 4k tv finally and on some shows / channels / games etc I notice pixelation on certain parts of the screen. For instance, the NBC logo on the score box. It has some pixelation. Is that because of Spectrums quality ? I was nervous it may be from the TV but if I watch a 4k movie its no issue. Im clueless with this TV crap. Any word on when cable will be 4k ?

Yep a spectrum problem in mid/northern mi. It has be locking up, pixelating, slow internet, the whole gamut of over promised under delivered services.

The good news is our electric co-op is planning on offering fiber-optic service in the not too distant future.

They went to black for about 15 sec after a score & blew a commercial pod
I would not like to have to explain that one to the bosses

No freezes on Optimum so anything else must be local providers
