    I'm in MN - no other channel carrying the game I can find. Why is a preseason game on NFL Network blacked out?

    Money I guess. The 49ers are on KICU that's not in HD. Oh well.

    They sent a tweet a few minutes ago and said that it is back on Ch 212. I haven't checked to verify that it is now OK, but just reporting that I did get a tweet.

    I'm in Oakland and the game's no where to be found. Channel 36 has infomericals on now and a replay of the Raider game @ noon.

    Guess I'll go out and play and hope they don't black out the game @ 4PM.

    Blacked out in Oregon too. Called DTV to ask what's going on and finally after about 18 minutes, Ch 212 came back on. A real DTV screwup. What's worse is the 2 DTV people I talked to said it was blacked out because it was available on local channels. No locals in Oregon are broadcasting this game!!

    The 49ers was broadcast on Channel 44 (upn Stations) in HD. The niners had won the game 37-17.

    It was a mistake. I guess people don't realize that.

    That is correct. I recorded it successfully on a later showing. The initial one was blacked out by mistake. (in central Iowa, among many other places.)
