    Well my friends, we are heading into the new football season here. How do you think KEYE is going to treat the Texans this year?

    I bought the insurance of Sunday Ticket again this year just in case I can't make the bar and KEYE is continuing their treason.

    So, the first question is: Will Austin residents be able to see Texans preseason games live this year?

    I know KEYE favors the Cowboys here...and honestly you can't get mad at them...they are another Texas team, and KEYE has sinced dropped their "official station of the Texans" lie.

    So will there be another station carrying the Texans?

    I thought I saw someone somewhere say that at least the Broncos/Texans game was going to be televised in Austin, but I can't find the thread. If that person reads this, maybe you can repost?

    The great thing about the "official station of the Texans" thing being removed - is that it was a DIRECT result of us on the boards sending them emails and telling them to drop it, because it's so damned insincere.

    I'll keep my eyes open and post if I find out anything.

    The problem between Texan fans and KEYE has nothing to do with the Cowboys. The Texans are an AFC team and KEYE handles the AFC games on Sundays. KEYE chooses to show Tack games over Texans games since VY is the Longhorns Lord and Savior.

    I thought we covered this part.

    He's talking about the pre-season. It has everything to do with the Cowboys.

    Nobody's snapping! Sigh... man, message boards just aren't good for personal interaction. Haha.

    I wasn't purposely being curt or short... just trying to make a succinct point and not repeat myself and talk it into the ground like I seem to do pretty often. :)

    But since it's also part of the discussion - when the regular season starts, I see no reason to believe that the station won't keep doing what they have been doing. A quick look at the Texans/Titans schedules shows a ton of conflicts this year, just like last.

    So it looks like it's going to be the same ol' BS.

    Damnit! I thought this thread was going to be about how KEYE has rededicated themselves to the Texans and were REALLY going to be the official station of the Texans. Not that it matters to me personally. Since 3rd Base will be my home away from home.

    Speaking of, didn't someone mention something about 1530 asking where Texans fans go to watch the games? What ever came of that?

    Getting back to it. I think it's a foregone conclusion the pre-season will belong to the Cowboys. I believe it would be that way the season after the Texans win the Super Bowl. It's just the way of the world in Austin and the Front Office apparently recognizes that and will never market this town.

    I'm holding out hope I get to watch the Texans on Sundays. We have a legitimate shot at making the playoffs and I don't want to miss a game.

    Not gonna happen - at least not every week. You'll have to get DirecTV or go to one of our watch parties.

    Well I know that you will be able to watch reruns of all the preseason games (expect vs Cowboys) on NFL Network. I emailed KEYE to ask what the preseason schedule is going to be like...I am sure I will hear from then soon.

    Last year KEYE showed BOTH the Texans and Cowboys..I hope they do it again.

    Anyone else going to Dallas for the preseason game?

    Do you have Time Warner, Rockabilly? Looks like they're doing the Cowboys on the main KEYE channel, and the Texans on that secondary channel that they have. I don't know if you can actually get that other KEYE channel without digital cable or not... but BOTH of these channels are on Time Warner digital, and they're both available in HD. I got this screencap from the KEYE site:

    Did they have two channels last year? Any chance they'll put the Texans on the secondary channel when there's a conflict with their precious Titans on the main channel?
