Technical issues at the Baton Rouge Fox and NBC affiliates this weekend meant DirectTV and Dish Network viewers, as well as those who catch the stations via antenna, were unable to watch the New Orleans Saints defeat the New York Giants 52-49 on Sunday.
The outage at WGMB-Fox 44 and WVLA-NBC 33 also meant those viewers were not able to see the final two games of Major League Baseball’s World Series nor the NFL Sunday night matchup between the undefeated Green Bay Packers and the undefeated Denver Broncos.
