RSN TV alert for coverage of our game at UNC (link)


Those of you where NBC Sports Washington [formerly Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic (CSN)] is your Regional Sports Network should be aware that the game is scheduled for both a 2.5 hour slot on the NBC Sports Washington channel as well as a 3.5 hour slot on the NBC Sports Washington Plus channel.

The difference is because the NBC Sports Washington channel has Caps pre-game programming scheduled to begin at 6:00 PM ET, only 2.5 hours after the start of our game.

Like the former Comcast SportsNet Mid-Atlantic, NBC Sports Washington is undoubtedly contractually required to show this “local team” Caps pre-game programming, thereby preempting the remainder of our game, expecting viewers to switch to the NBC Sports Washington Plus.

In the past, however, the problem has been that not all TV service providers have also provided the “Plus” channel. Those viewers should probably try to make arrangements for an alternative viewing method.

The following link is to a Zap2It.com search pre-loaded with our game (make sure your zip code and TV service provider are set correctly using “Change My Location” and if necessary, revisit the link).

Zap2It.com: College Football : Virginia at North Carolina

Zap2It is a website that, among other things, provides local television listings. The site is produced by Tribune Media, one of the largest providers of TV data for electronic & interactive programming guides.

For example, in my zip code and TV service provider (Verizon FiOS TV), the link above reports:

Sat 10/14 3:30pm-6:00pm 76 NBCSWA LIVE
Sat 10/14 3:30pm-6:00pm 1525 NBCSWA LIVE
Sat 10/14 3:30pm-7:00pm 78 NBCSWAP LIVE
Sat 10/14 3:30pm-6:00pm 576 NBCSWAH LIVE HD
Sat 10/14 3:30pm-7:00pm 578 NSWAPHD LIVE HD
Sat 10/14 3:30pm-6:00pm 821 ESPCE1H Live HD
