SUNSports and FSN Statement

by Staff Writer / Tampa Bay Lightning
This past Saturday's Lightning @ Thrashers game was scheduled and aired on FSN Florida at 7pm. It was not originally scheduled to air on Sun Sports, due to the previous programming commitment with the Gator and Seminole postgame shows, but was added as a joined in progress telecast and Sun Sports did join it at 8:12pm immediately after the post-game shows.

The game did air on FSN Florida as scheduled at 7pm. However, due to a technical issue with DirecTV, DISH & FSN Florida, satellite viewers did not see it on FSN Florida until around 8pm. As soon as that issue was discovered, FSN Florida worked closely with DirecTV and DISH to get the
situation resolved as quickly as possible and we apologize for any inconvenience this issue caused for Lightning fans. Please know that FSN Florida and Sun Sports are looking into this and taking the steps necessary ensure the problem is corrected in the future.

Thank you,
FSN Florida & Sun Sports
