I was not around today so I set my TV to record the Packers/Bears Game on NFL Sunday Ticket. When I got home tonight - I find it did not record. It was supposed to be on channel 432 but it wasn't. I am really ticked at this. Why was it not on NFL Sunday Ticket?

Probably because it was on Sportsnet. I think that games on CTV and Sportsnet are blacked out on Sunday Ticket. I'm not sure about this though.

When I set my unit to record the Sportsnet channels said TBA and it said that it was scheduled to be shown on 432 so that is the channel I set it to record on. I am still fuming as I missed the game.

It was also on Fox West (Seattle and Spokane). It's always best to check CBS/Fox first, and then Sportsnet/CTV. If Sportsnet says TBA, then it is a good idea to check their website.

I have no clue why the guide said it would be on ST, unless they just listed every game because the networks made their picks later in the week than usual.

all games are on Sunday Ticket regardless of what other channels they are shown on. The only blackouts I got were when the Bills didn't sell out their home games. I am in 905, so the NFL's 75-mile radius rule applies. When I tried to tune into those games, I got a message saying the game is blacked out in my area.

also, what time did you set? if the recording started at 4 pm, fast forward for 15 minutes, as the game started at 4:15

It's strange, but if the game is on Sportsnet, fox, cbs etc it will not be shown on the ST channels.
The most extreme example of this is when you're watching a game on ST then SN, Fox or whatever tunes in for the last couple minutes of the game the ST channel will immediately be blacked out (some PPV message will appear) and you'll have to find the game on the SN/Fox/etc channel.
It has happened to me a couple times this year.
