Wondering if this happened to anybody else.
Comcast SportsNet (CSN), which is local to WDC, is showing the Washington Capitals vs. Buffalo Sabres on TV tonight. Also, on Versus, they are showing the same game. I thought there would be some airplay whacked out rules, because Versus’ other option was Philadelphia Flyers vs. Florida Panthers. So the same game was playing on both channels. I was watching the game on Versus.
Third period, the game is tight. Very well played by both sides. Then, at approx. 9:20 PM EST, near 3:00 left in the game, Versus *totally *blacks out. Nothing for about 30 seconds. Then they come back. Out of curiosity, I flipped over to Comcast (the local channel). They had the game. Flip back to Versus, and they’ve moved over to (what seemed to be) the 2nd intermission report from earlier in the game and going to show the “bonus coverage” of the PHI / FLA game and didn’t carry the end of the game.
I guess my question is was anybody out of the local area happy that they were able to watch the game but then ticked when they blacked out? Does anybody outside of the area care about the Caps?
