The issues crept up on the first full day of the NFL’s 2022-23 season, which brought many football fans to their phones, tablets and smart TVs to catch the action on Sunday.
In a social media post, a spokesperson for Sling TV affirmed customers of that service were having problems accessing the channel, with most customers receiving a “Playback Error” message when they tried to tune in.
