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

Throwback uniforms.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

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!!

It was blacked out in MS also. I did not try after 12:30....it may have come on after that. Sorta silly on D's part.

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.)
