But football fans…and frustrated party hosts…from other states also reported problems. Users is Florida and Colorado claimed the outage was impacting them, too.


ComcastCares was rapid-fire responding to complaints online, indicating the firm was responding to the problems. The account didn’t offer an explanation or an estimated time for restorationow.

Comast didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.

Comcast owns the NBC network. Sunday’s Super Bowl was on Fox.
