Local Briefs for 9-2


Broncos game blacked out by technical glitch

Some Steamboat Springs Broncos' fans missed the Broncos preseason game with the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday night because of a technical glitch.

The glitch knocked out KCNC, cable channel 4 and the CBS affiliate in Denver.

Only Steamboat Springs customers who do not have digital cable receivers were affected, a Comcast customer service representative said.

Those customers got a blank screen Thursday night and Friday morning until service was restored shortly before 9 a.m.

Viewers with digital receivers did not see an interruption in service.

The Broncos beat the Cardinals, 29-23, in the game, which will be rebroadcast this weekend on Fox Sportsnet, cable channel 27.
