LOS ANGELES -- A blackout on Sunday cut off the Super Bowl telecast for Time Warner Cable customers in Southern California for about an hour.

will re-air in full the Seattle Seahawks' 43-8 victory over the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII on Tuesday, Feb. 4, at 9 p.m. ET.

Time Warner Cable spokesman Rich Ruggiero says the company resolved a technical issue that affected just the Fox standard-definition channel, not the Fox high-definition channel. He says the company apologizes for the inconvenience to customers.

Earlier, hundreds of football fans took to Twitter to complain about the blackout.

Customers lost the standard-definition signal for about an hour, starting before the halftime show. Two other Time Warner cable channels -- KCAL-TV and KTLA-TV -- also were blacked out.

Ruggiero says the company is investigating the cause of the blackout.
