A note WDSU ran about Spanish-language issues.

Last week, NBC’s Sunday Night Football broadcast aired with Spanish audio to many viewers, with local affiliate WDSU (New Orleans) coming in for particular criticism there (although it wasn’t the only station complained about). This Sunday, that appeared to happen again for WDSU during the Indianapolis Colts-San Francisco 49ers game, at least for those receiving the station through AT&T U-Verse. The WDSU English-language NBC feed worked fine on other providers, including this writer’s YouTube TV package, but it ran repeated graphics (seen above) indicating they knew there was a language issue on AT&T U-Verse, and encouraging those customers to reset their language settings. Here are some of the complaints about that:

It’s unclear what exactly led to this issue, but it’s certainly notable that it happened to the same NBC affiliate for at least some of its viewers for two Sunday Night Football games in a row.
