Cowboys Game To Be "Delayed"
November 26, 2007 at 11:12 AM (PT)
Many football fans have wanted to turn down the TV network announcers during a game and listen to the local radio broadcast while watching the action on their HDTVs, only to find the video delay to be distracting. (The radio announcer says "incomplete" before you see the pass thrown, for example.)
The DALLAS COWBOYS RADIO NETWORK has come up with a unique work-around, and will offer two different delayed broadcasts to listeners for THURSDAY night's COWBOYS-PACKERS game. By delaying CUMULUS Sport outlet THE TICKET's two frequencies (1310 AM and 104.1 FM) by 10 seconds, HDTV and Satellite viewers will be able to use their DVR "pause" buttons to sync their home television video with the COWBOYS RADIO NETWORK's audio.
DFW listeners with rabbit ear antennas or cable TV will be able to listen to CUMULUS' 93.3 THE BONE, where the COWBOYS RADIO NETWORK will continue with its usual game day delay.
