I always thought that was standard policy across the board. Why
encourage someone to flip to another network/channel?

And when Channel 38 had the Sox in its first, much-longer stint as the
flagship, I think they tried to charge rights fees. So local stations
just pulled down highlights from the other team's telecasts, when
available. And in this day of every team owning/affiliating with a RSN,
I'm sure that'd be even easier to accomplish.

8:00? 8:25? 8:40? Find a flick in no time
