Ok, so I’m watching the Sox/Rangers game on the Extra Innings Package, which basically shows me the local Boston NESN broadcast. Well, from time to time, as the commentators are speaking, it breaks in to a pre-recorded “Be sure to watch NESN before each game blah blah blah”. But it seems to happen as the announcers are saying something like, “Now lets give you…” and it cuts off. Seems to me like they are going to say “the local boston pitch count” or something like that. Then, when the pre-recorded message is over, often times the commentators will be in the middle of a sentence.
My question is, does this happen when watching the game locally in Boston? And if not, how do they know I’m watching it on Extra Innings and not locally?
