    So today I was looking at my my timers for Fox soccer channel- and making sure that my timers are set for Sundays too big EPL games-Liverpool-Everton and Manchester United-Chelsea
    but both are skipped and say "blacked out event"

    I have NEVER seen this before??
    anyone got any ideas?

    I know they black out games for american sports but Fox soccer? its not as If I can drive to the game to watch it !!

    the only thing that has changed isI also had fox soccer + but cancelled it today because looking at what was being shown -they did not have games anymore I was interested in plus
    its the end of the season in 3 more weeks. so I cut it today saving 15 bux but would that affect these fox soccer games I have not changed any of my packages (Still have america everything pack)

    Is this all related? And seeing as Fox has lost the EPL next season and going to NBC sports I didn't think Fox soccer Plus is needed ?
    but im still confused about this "blacked out event" ??

    Check your local Fox Sports RSN. There is a Manchester vs Chelsea game on several FOX channels on Monday. Is this the same game?

    The FSC version is not blacked out in my area (Northern Indiana) but the Fox RSN for my area doesn't have any local teams for my area.

    Yes I have gone thru all the channels ,sometimes rarely they are on FX or FOX local 35
    I went thru all my fox RSNs and PPV sports but nothing-interestingly - my games are recording normal tomorrow the 4th and the monday game on the 6th are recording as well

    just the 2 Sunday games (which are both live)
    and the biggest games of the weekend .......

    If you asked a CSR don't take their word for it. And yes, similar to this has happened before just a month ago, but by game day it was broadcast in HD. I don't know that will be the case but I wouldn't use a CSR on the phone as the authoritative answer.

    NEVER believe what a CSR on the phone tells you. Never. Always get whatever they tell you confirmed on the forums.
