You'll have to take that up with folks at NFL, since it involves their defined local franchise areas and specific TV 'blackout' no-carry rules, along with big money revenues for the league and member teams.  Spectrum and TV viewers have no input on the decisions being made.  Don't expect logic to prevail, it's ALL about the money at a time of declining sports viewership. 

And just a hunch that Portland, ME is defined as part of the NE Pats viewing area, not the Giants.  There's a web site where you can look that up by using your viewing location ZIP code and the local TV station ID.

Visit this site to learn what games will be shown in what markets:

NFL broadcast rules dictate what games you will get and when you will join a game in progress.  When you are getting both games of a Double-Header (and CBS had the DH last week), you will stay with your early game until completion UNLESS you are in the TV market of one of the teams playing in the late game.  Once your early game is over, you will join the late game in progress.

 

As posted, this is not a Spectrum thing, nor is it a TV Station thing (although a local affiliate can request a game, although it's not guaranteed to have its request granted.)
