Default KEYE no longer 'official home of the Texans'

...for preseason or otherwise. Below where the red arrow is is where they used to have 'official preseason home of the Houston Texans (which last year before we all started raising hell actually said 'official home of the Houston Texans'.)

Here's a screencap I just pulled from www.keyetv.com/sports


I can say with 100% certainty that this is a result of THIS BOARD bombarding them with emails, and attention getting back to the Texans front office who placed a phone call to KEYE and came down on them for it.

However - now I'm starting to worry that the Texans might threaten KEYE with 'show all our games or none of them at all', which would be bad for us in Austin, and continue to stunt the growth of the fan base. Hopefully the two sides (three sides if you count us fans) can come up with something that is in the best interest of Texan fans... let's keep up the pressure and post any updates as they come!

One of the problems we have is that Allison Smith works for the Cowboys, they have an obvious conflict of interest.

I live in Austin and have DirecTV, but I do support the cause of getting KEYE straightened out. It is hard to build fan support in a community if the community can't watch the games.


Go Texans

Isn't keye a CBS affiliate, and if so, I thought CBS affiliates had to show AFC games, and FOX for NFC? If thats the case I would think the Titans would pose more of a threat than the Cowboys. At least I believe that was the case last year.

Not for preseason games. They can show what ever they want.

You are correct, they will show Titans games in the regular season, Cowboys games in the preseason. But with a Cowboys bias in the Sports department, don't expect them to hype or follow the Texans anytime soon. Cowboy fans don't like us much.

You might want to call the NFL in New York City. How did KEYE get out of the NFL Territorial Restrictions and get to show Titans games?

This is unusual to say the least.

Here is what I have found, I guess they can do what they want unless we find a way to change their mind:


Quote:
Which games get shown in what particular markets are determined by the following factors: First, each home team's "primary media market," the market in which the team is physically located, must televise all of the away games involving the local team (a vestige of the days when only road games were shown), and all of the home games, provided that they are sold out at least 72 hours prior to kickoff (or else, they are subject to blackout, see below). In addition, the league also designates "secondary markets," media markets adjoining primary markets (generally penetrating within 75 miles of a stadium but not having their own team) that are also required to show the local team. Generally, these secondary markets must show the road games but are not obligated to show the designated team's home games. Their decision on whether to show home games typically depends on whether or not the NFL-designated local team is perceived to be the most popular in the market. In all other markets, the networks are the sole arbiters of what game gets shown where. However, they usually make their decisions after consulting with all of their local affiliates. In some rarer occasions, some affiliates are offered a choice of a few games for a given time-slot, if there is not one game that stands out as appropriate. In those cases, sometimes affiliates allow viewers to vote on which game will air.
