NFL fans on social media were complaining that NBC’s Super Bowl coverage was in Spanish on their TVs and they didn’t know why.

The Los Angeles Rams take on the Cincinnati Bengals at SoFi Stadium on Sunday for Super Bowl LVI. The Rams opened the scoring when Matthew Stafford fond Odell Beckham Jr for the first touchdown of the game.

Bengals kicker Evan McPherson replied with a 29-yard field goal to make the score 7-3. The Rams then scored their second TD of the game when Stafford found Kupp in the end zone in the second quarter. The Bengals brought the score back to 13-10 after an excellent drive with Mixon at the heart of it.

However, during NBC’s coverage, some fans were complaining that they could hear a Spanish broadcast in the background. Many took to social media to ask what was going on and how they could fix it, but nobody seemed to have an answer.

NBC did not issue a statement as to why some fans’ Super Bowl coverage was in Spanish but it was believed to be a technical issue.

A few people have now noted that the issues with Spanish commentary on NBC seem to have been resolved and things are back to normal.
