Charlotte TV station will air Redskins preseason games

Before there were Panthers, the Carolinas were largely Redskins country.

And now for a few nights it August, it will be again.

Charlotte television station WSOC announced it will carry three Redskins preseason games this
August.


The station will air Redskins games against the Titans on Aug. 8 and the Bills on Aug. 24 live. They’ll show the Aug. 29 game against the Buccaneers on a one-day tape delay. Panthers preseason games are on another
station.

The only conflict with the Panthers preseason schedule is the Aug. 29 game, which explains pushing it back.

Airing another team’s games in an NFL market is uncommon, but makes sense for the local station, because
anything football will probably draw better ratings than whatever else they can
air in that slot
on a summer Saturday night.

WSOC is an ABC affiliate,
which means they don’t have access to a regular diet of football. And for
Redskins fans there, it represents a rare chance to see their old team without
Sunday Ticket.

Heard this yesterday morning. Was thinking of starting a thread, but I put my post in the Sam Huff retiring thread. Yes great news for us here in the Charlotte area. Was thinking I'd only get to see the Steelers game live. Sucks that the Bucs game is delayed one day. Figured there might be a conflict somewhere. Panther fans are livid. It would be like them showing Falcons preseason games in DC.

But Bubble Screen, NFL network usually doesn't show them live.
