    When WCVB (Channel 5) carries the ESPN broadcasts of the Patriots'
Sunday night games, those games also air on co-owned WMUR (Channel 9
Manchester NH). However, the rules for carrying ESPN's football over the air
must not be the same for baseball, as the Red Sox game is only available
over the air on Channel 5.
