BRYAN -- The management of KBTX did everything possible to provide Suddenlink Cable subscribers an opportunity to watch Sunday's much anticipated showdown between Indianapolis and New England, but in the end, the station's solution was denied by the NFL.
Due to KBTX's proximity to Houston, it is considered a secondary market of the Houston Texans and is legally bound to broadcast the Texans' games whenever they are being carried by CBS.
That means KBTX was never scheduled to carry the battle of unbeatens between the Patriots and Colts on Sunday.
KBTX worked out an apparent solution with our CBS affiliate in Waco, KWTX, through our network representatives and Suddenlink Cable, in hopes of providing the game to local cable customers.
KBTX's solution was legal, but deemed unacceptable in the eyes of the NFL.
The game can still be seen by over the air antenna on KWTX channel 10 out of Waco, as well as on both Direct TV and Dish Network courtesy of KWTX.
Kickoff is set for 3:15 p.m. from the RCA Dome in Indianapolis, Indiana.
