Cup Final Game 1 in North Carolina

Rate this topic

8 posts in this topic

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.......

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.

NNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!ONEMILLIONONEHUNDREDELEVENTHOUSANDONEHUNDREDELEVEN!!!!!

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.

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??
