KEYE to show all Texans games...
 
Haven't seen it but was listening to 610 over the internet and they just said that Austin is "over Vince" as KEYE will not be showing the Titans games and will show all Texans games this year. :kingkong: As soon as I confirm it, I'm going to make sure and send a thank you. If I can send the hate mail, I can send a thank you as well.

All 13 games that aren't on FOX or ESPN...no conflicts with the Cowgirls on Fox those dates either!

Don't get too excited just yet. Some of VY's worshippers are coming out of the woodwork after listening to their idol's prophecies yesterday of greatness, being the next black QB to win the SB, and being a shoe in for the Hall of Fame.

VY uttering those things is a sign that they will happen because "if Vince utters it must come to pass without fail". (2 Vincelations 3:5)

They'll change their tune if Vince gets the starters role again and manages not to lose the game.

I hate to say it but we're getting picked up because we're expected to win this year. We're generating a lot of buzz around the league. If the Texans open flat again, we'll be dropped from the listings. I believe that.

It's all up to the Texans to win. Win and you'll prosper.

CORRECT.

That's how it happens up here where I live.

They start off showing the Texans games on local CBS...then we get dropped for other games that the network thinks will draw more viewers.

Never, ever, ever believe that a local affiliate will show you wire-to-wire Texans games. They are loyal to advertisers FIRST, and the advertisers will want the affiliate to put up games that they think more viewers will watch.

My religion: God and NFL Sunday Ticket.

Re: KEYE to show all Texans games...
 
Yall absolutely right and I received a response stating as much...but as of this moment, they have "us" penciled in, not someone else.




As of today we will show Texans games...I believe it's 13 or 14 of the 16. The only two or three we aren't showing are on FOX or an ESPN/NBC game.

I will say this - the schedule is subject to change. But as of today, that is our plan.

That said - I don't believe we've had this plan in place in the last few years.

Thanks for the email - and please don't ever hesitiate to email me if you have any questions!

Let's not get too excited. KEYE had always planned on showing Texans games until the Texans started stinking it up. If things go a certain way, the plug will be pulled again, to be sure.

Actually there is one conflict.

The first FOX game is on October 25.... but one is at noon and one is at 315. Luckily FOX has the doubleheader that Sunday, so assuming FOX will show the Texans and not the game of the week - that one will be fine.

However, on December 13, the Texans and Cowboys both play on FOX - also one at noon and one at 315 - however that Sunday - CBS has the doubleheader, meaning that FOX can only show one game that day and you know which one they're going to pick. So we won't be seeing SEA @ HOU in Austin... instead they will show SD @ DAL.

So, if KEYE does what they say they're going to do - the ONLY game (including pre-season) that we won't see in Austin is SEA @ HOU on Dec. 13.

Let me just say I'm trilled about the news. I never/shouldn't have to call, e-mail, and generally act a fool to KEYE while I'm watching an online feed that comes and goes, this thrills me to no end.

However, the part in bold is awfully irritating to read for me because one major point of contention during the exchanges I've had with Gary & Co. is I believe they have final say on who is shown. (hey!, no Gary!! I just realized that, whay a country!).

Some of you might disagree with that, point taken in advance, but now KEYE is inferring credit for the Texan-friendly schedule.

Shoot, if that's the worst thing that happens today I did good. Great news. *sigh*

This is great news. I'm telling everyone I know.

Non-fans of the Texans should at least be intrigued with seeing the best receiver and defensive end in the league. That alone should keep ratings afloat.

:

Cat Ballou - a movie with Jane Fonda (who played Cat) and Lee Marvin - played a perfect drunk. Good movie, in its time. Probably still is.

He's a good guy. I've had email exchanges with him - but he actually has nothing at all to do with this. It's the programming director/programming department that has the hammer. He's in charge of the sports content for the station, but not the programs the station shows.

Nice - I was thinking about investing in Sling Box so I could get games on my computer.

With a new baby...I can't count on getting to the Tavern or Third Base this year.

HTown2ATX 08-08-2009 07:10 PM

Will CBS affiliate KEYE in Austin be carrying Texans this year?
 
For any of you in Austin like me, you know that we Texans fans are usually stuck going to a sports bar to watch games because the CBS station here would rather play titan games hoping for a chance to ride VY's jock. I just looked at the KEYE schedule for next week for our game against KC, and surprise surprise, Airwolf will be shown instead. That's right...f-ing AIRWOLF. So, any media savvy people here in town happen to know if the Texans will be getting the lions share of TV this year in Austin or is it same old same old? If it is the same old story, I recommend 3rd Base on Mopac and 6th, really nice and they usually have the Texans games on the big screen in the back. Just a suggestion, I'll be there if the games aren't on TV, but really, really hoping that they are. Anybody know more than me on this?
