Why will the FCC be delaying the broadcast of the Super Bowl?

The FCC will be delaying broadcasts of the National Football League Super Bowl on the National Public Television Network until Feb. 1, 2016, according to a document posted on the FCC’s website. 

The delay was announced Friday and came after the network received more than 100 complaints over the weekend.

The FCC said the delay was based on technical issues.

In a statement, the network said it was notifying fans about the delay, but would not be making any changes to the game schedule. 

“The delay is necessary to ensure that all of our network partners can ensure the availability of all of the content and other features required for the National Basketball Association Super Bowl,” said the statement.

“We are also working with the league to address other issues related to this game.”

The NFL has yet to decide whether to televise the game in 2018.
