RE: Pats vs Jets

Now see, on Channel 62 in the Chicopee cable system, WBZ programming is
shown at different times.. We get "News Conference" and Patriots Game Day on
Sundays, every newscast and "Sports Final".. weird I dont understand why
they dont show the Pats games??

Good question!  I don't know the answer, but I suspect that the
stations and networks could play it either way.  One could make the
claim that the Sunday afternoon football broadcast is a single
notional `program', which is customized for the benefit of the local
audience.  It probably depends on the contractual details between the
league and the networks.
