    Those of us seven hours away fron Houston will not get the game, apparently. I really wanted to see this game. Can we try to search for someone that's streaming the game online? :texflag:

    Yeah, I agree. My work schedule will not allow me to get to a sports bar, so hopefully I can get a stream.

    All I know as a possibility at this point is www.channelsurfing.net. But I haven't got the slightest if they will have it.

    I just found out that I have to take Tuesday here as my RDO for working this saturday, so the change means I could catch the game..... so we'll see what we can dig up in terms of a link.

    I suspect one will come to light closer to game time. I will trawl a few Ravens boards on Monday, normally someone on another teams board has found a link.

    Yeah, the problem with the stream thing is we really won't know until the game starts. There's not really any way to be 100% sure that you can find it streaming.

    This is a tad irritating. I just got an e-mail from the Astros saying Friday and Saturday are postponed but apparently Sunday is on as scheduled.

    This doesn't mean anything for Austin - unless it can be confirmed that Austin is considered a "secondary market" for the Texans, which I don't think it technically is. This only applies to Houston as far as I can tell.

    It means it will be shown on ESPN2 in Austin.

    Not so sure about that either. I remember a game (was it pre-season?) they didn't show due to blackout rules.

    I have a feeling this is just for Htown, BMore, and secondary markets. I have a feeling Denver wont get the game.

    Why would they show the game on CBS and ESPN2 if it was only for local and secondary markets. Context and logic dictate that CBS is for the local and secondary markets and ESPN2 is for the national market.

    Well, first of all - logic has nothing to do with anything when it comes to this kind of thing. KEYE has proven that over and over again.

    The reason it would be shown on CBS and ESPN2 (if it's even going to be on ESPN2) is because there's a rights issue... we have two networks with conflicting rights:

    1 - CBS has the AFC contract, and this game was originally a CBS game.
    2 - ESPN has exclusive rights to all games on Monday night, regardless of circumstance.

    So the simulcast would be both a compromise, and a way to fulfill the rights of both networks in the face of an unusual situation.

    Also, it's not going to be shown on ESPN2 anywhere. I promise you.

    Why?

    Football is football on Monday night whether it is on ESPN or ESPN2 right? I am only asking because I got a little happy with the idea that I could see the game out here Monday night and you decided you come over and kick me in the balls.

    This is an odd statement, given that they just said it was going to be on CBS and ESPN2

    I am pretty sure this thing willl be nationally televised now. ESPN2 does not have local capabilities. They are a national station, and whatever they play goes out to all their subscribers. So if its on ESPN2 in Houston, its going to be on everywhere

    I think DC is doing what I'm doing. We don't want to get our hopes up only to see an ESPNNEWS feed on ESPN2 beginning at gametime. It's just that it's happened too many times. Those uf us in Austin will act a fool if we see opening kick off and all is well.

    I'm thinking the reason for the two channels is because incase cable is down due to the Hurricane, the local stuff should be ready to go and will show to the locals. The rest of the nation can watch ESPN2
