My local NBC affiliate, WITN, is showing the Children's Miracle Network Telethon instead of game 1 of the Stanley Cup Finals!!

Last year they did this during Game 5!! They have also interrupted the playoff games for hours at a time to show weather alerts in the area.

Thought I would vent and let everyone in hockey areas what you could be dealing with.......

Damn, I have to be in NC from the 4th to the 8th.

Here's to sunny skies and smooth internet feeds!

I had to deal with the same thing for game 5 last year, and the same thing for tihs game in the New Orleans area for the exact same cause/pledges. Very frustrating but it is what it is unfortunately. I watched game 5 last year in Baton Rouge about an hour away. Either going to do that again or drive to Biloxi/Southern Mississippi or just watch it online if available.

Fargo is doing the same thing! They did this to me in 2007. I was all relieved when I saw the dates this year because I thought that the finals were starting next weekend.
Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I need to make alternate arrangements.
Sunnovabiscuit. I got cable just so I'd have NBC.

I'm going off to fume now.

It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.


"They are the best team in the world. They are a team that can just take over when they want to," Chicago's Patrick Kane said (of the Detroit Red Wings).

I've got DIRECTV.....the local affiliate for NBC has a 24/7 weather channel available for digital cable subscribers. They did the telethon last year and put Game 5 on the alternate weather channle, but have no plans for doing this again this year.

Does anyone know if DIRECTV will move the game to a different channel since its not available through the local NBC channel??
