I couldn't watch the channel 208 Fox NFL football game as it was blocked and forced us to watch the same game on CTV 210. That's never happened before.

Edit: Maybe Fox went off-air in the middle of the game.

Maybe they were unable to perform the substitution. In that case I believe the channel must be blacked out.

I believe the rule is the simsub must of equal or better quality that the signal it's replacing, so they wouldn't black it out.

I believe it was a station or signal issue as it was on the FOX channel at the start of the game and then was back on later in the game. I'm on Shaw Direct and never have to deal with simsubs where I live and saw the same thing. If it was a simsub then the CTV signal would have been on the FOX channel as well, not the FOX channel blacked out entirely.
