Default Austin TV for Bucs/Texans pre-season

EDIT - UPDATE - CW Austin is NOT showing the Bucs/Texans game. Far as I know, the game will not be shown anywhere on TV in Austin.

Back before pre-season when I emailed KNVA to find out if it was true they were going to show the Texans pre-season games, the person who replied told me they would in fact be showing the first two games. Nothing was said about this Thursday's game, however. So I wasn't sure if our great Austin fans would be able to watch.

I emailed the station today for a follow-up, and I got this confusing reply:

Quote:
We have an NFL game this Thursday the 28th of August, teams are as follows: Jacksonville @ Washington , it airs from 6-9p!
Keep in mind this wasn't necessarily a programming person at the station... rather a person who responds to viewer comments... they may not have an in-depth knowledge of the station's specific programming. But I did reply and asked for clarification/notification if something changes or if their initial email ends up being erroneous.

I'll update here if I hear any new info.

Default Re: Austin TV for Bucs/Texans pre-season

Hm. I guess the Austin CW is affiliated with NBC, because she was referring to the NBC broadcast of that Skins/Jags game. I asked for clarification, and I made it clear I was talking about the Austin CW affiliate, not the local NBC affiliate... so again, if I hear anything new - (or you know, if one of you guys know what's up) I'll post it.

Default Re: Austin TV for Bucs/Texans pre-season

Okay - I heard back after I asked for clarification.

First of all - KXAN (NBC) and KVAN (CW) are both run out of the same place in Austin, so they do in fact answer emails for both networks in Austin, so that bit of confusion is now clear.

Next - the Texans / Bucs game will not be shown on CW this week, so as far as I know, thus far there is no TV for the game in Austin.

Default Re: Austin TV for Bucs/Texans pre-season

Well, NBC has no choice. It's a national TV game, and they don't do regional coverage. They don't have the option to show any game aside from Jags/'Skins.

To show the pre-season stuff - a network affiliate in Austin would have to make a deal with the Texans pre-season network or whatever it's called. I guess KNVA thought it was worth it for the first two games, but not the last. Apparently neither Schaub or Rosenfels are even going to play Thursday. Maybe they figured the cost wouldn't be worth it ratings-wise.

Did they showed the 4th game os pre-season last year? I know they didn't show it the year before that. It really doesn't matter to me, because half the players that plays that game will be cut by Saturday. Kubiak gonna give them some time to impress other coaches, nothing special to watch.

They did show the game last year. It was on an HD channel though.

Will it be on the radio though?

I just saw the commercial for it on the local CW 39 here in H-town. I will be at the game but I always record it and did not know 'til a few moments ago that ABC 13 was not carrying it and that it had been moved to CW 39.

If you have NFLN they are re-running it Friday morning at 8:00am Central and then again Sunday at 9:00am Central. Set yours or your friend's DVR accordingly.

Weird. I've been assured by CW Austin that they are NOT showing the game. I sent them the link to Nick's post on the other board. We'll see what they say.

I heard back from KNVA CW Austin - their General Manager says they will NOT be airing the game. Bummer, but I do appreciate CW picking up the first two games.

Wow. That's sorta like someone giving homeless people food instead of money, and the homeless person throws the food back into the givers face because he wanted money. When you ain't got crap, then be grateful with whatever you get.

NO it is more like what we here in Austin have been dealing with for two years. Well the titans have a bye week so we will show the Texans. Then to look at ratings they will compare titans vs Colts to Texans vs Raiders and say well the rating were better for the titans.

If it is inevitable just sit back and enjoy it right?
