    I had a strange thing happen today. I tried to switch to the Panthers-49ers game early on, but it was unavailable due to a blackout. The only games that should have been blacked out on ST here were the Cowboys and Texans games.

    I can't imagine why the Carolina game was blacked out on regular ST, especially when it was available through the streaming app. Has anyone else had this happen either today or in the past?

    In Dallas market: I saw the same thing when I tried switching to the Panthers game; got the 'blackout' message. When I tried again about 15-20 minutes later, the blackout glitch was fixed.

    What was available on your local stations. If a local station is covering the game even if not local - ST can't carry it. May not be the case but that way blackouts happen also.

    Dallas Fox would have been carrying the Cowboys-Redskins game. Their CBS had Chiefs-Texans.
