NFL Network just switched away from Giants/Steelers game

WTF. The Giants game just went off the air on the NFL network. It's now Chiefs-49ers game. WTF
Absolute

NFL does not consider fans

I go buy Gamepass and still not see the game because it freezes up on my IPAD.

It is on Fox here. I live close to Pittsburgh.
NFL Network angered 4 sets of fans at my sports bar

After 3 quarters, they started switching between the Giants/Pittsburg & 49ers/KC. They did it so much that it was impossible to follow either game. Incredibly stupid on their part & very frustrating to anyone who wanted to get an idea of how his team was doing.
What was the point of cutting into the Giants game?

The NFL Network schedule had the Chiefs-49ers game at 10pm Eastern after the Giants game.

Well, the Chiefs game was slated to start at 10, but kicked off at o. Wonder if that was the actual time of the game or if maybe weather (they get pretty bad T storms in summer no?) made them kick it off earlier
NFLN SUCKS

A clear stupid bait and switch tactic....won't watch that channel for the remainder of the preseason...why should I.
NLFNetwork is bullshit

they switched from a big market game to a small game. We should have never shared our media rights.
Wow, that is aweful

Way to piss off your customers, NFL Network.

The best way to deal with this, is to write letters of complaint to NFLN. Threaten to drop watching NFL games altogether unless they honor showing full NFL games they advertise. Don't stay silent on this.

I was able to watch the full game on the local NBC channel in the NY metro area, but if I were watching and the broadcast got cut, I'd be highly annoyed.
