    This isn’t an actual thing, you must have somehow activated Spanish as a language on your T.V Usually with the SAP button, check that it is set to English not Spanish. This is probably your problem.

    Maybe you mean on Time Warner CATV (technically not "airing")? For example, Packer preseason games are carried by WTMJ over the air, but they're having a dispute with TWC, so WTMJ is off the TWC lineup. Either company could also pull the Fox Spanish version, but for now they're letting it go. So your options are:
    1) Watch it on Fox and learn Spanish
    2) Watch it on Fox, turn down the sound, and listen to commentary on WTMJ radio (620 AM)
    3) Get a TV antenna and watch WTMJ over the air

    Time Warner also shut down CBS in several markets, so there may be similar situations with teams other than the Packers. (I don't know. Not a big sports guy.) Regular season starts in a week for CBS and a couple days later for the Packers. Somebody has to cave, or there'll be lots of surly sports fanatics.

    The options listed above would be great fixes, unless you decide to go AWOL and call FOX to resolve the situation yourself using another website (amatuer bombmakers . gov or something similar). As far as I can see, I'd think the "Best" fixes for now until it is resolved in your area/channel is to re-read the above!

    Is this a surly football fanatic?

    Also, one other option. Get an online schedule, and buy the online ticket to watch the game online (probably in any language you prefer). Or one better, buy season tickets to every game you wish to watch. This also would work if you are rich, and wish to stay at home to watch all the games (not sure what language it would be in) but buy out every game and resell the tickets legally. This will make every game available to OTA TV, and network TV, since they can't black out the game if all the tickets are sold out according to their records!

    This last response is because we cannot read your mind, and any smart butt thing I can think of will be given to you! If a mod thinks I was out of line feel free to delete any part or all of this reply.

    The blackout by Time Warner Cable of WTMJ has been over for two weeks now.

    The answer to "It's in Spanish" is: "Yes it is. Change the channel."
