i was wondering why our CBS station had infomercials on yesterday during the early football game. [it didn't impact me since i was watching the redskins game on fox, but it was curious they didn't have another game on.]
today, i see the answer. WTKR/CBS posted this: "Sorry Steelers fans, NFL broadcasting rules state that if a local club (in this case, the Redskins) is playing the early game, the other network (us), cannot air a game at the same time. Hence, the paid programming. These are decisions made not by us, but by the NFL, FCC, and networks."
