FOX Sports apologizes for Bears-Vikings technical difficulties

Posted: Updated:
(KMSP) -

FOX Sports was having technical difficulties throughout the Bears-Vikings game on Sunday -- a problem that peaked when the network cut to the studio halftime show in the final minute of the first half.

The broadcast also lost video multiple times and struggled to produce instant replays and graphics.


"We started to experience issues with the signal to the transmission lines into the truck and when we lost the signal, immediately tried to reboot the entire process to get the signal back as soon as we possibly could. We understand that it is unacceptable and we apologize everyone who was watching this game, especially those viewers in the Chicago and Minneapolis markets. We certainly do our very best to avoid this situation but unfortunately, these things occasionally happen."
