  1. Hiya! As the person who originally uploaded that video, you’re correct about the blacking out of sports highlights and the reasoning behind it. They (usually NFL, MLB, and XOSDigital for college) generally monetize rather than take down, but NFL is notorious for blocking views on mobile for the entire video... for like ten seconds of their highlights! It was either completely trim sports or just black them out (usually I black out only what aired on TV such as ESPN, Fox, etc since those are Content ID’d) and still let you get a feel of the sportscaster and their style, and what the

  2. It needs to happen. Yesterday. Back in the day, Warner Cable in Akron used to charge extra for Sportschannel Ohio to watch their Indians and Cavs games. Let the fans pay for it. It's making pay TV way too expensive and the OTT services aren't going to budge to their demands.

  3. Yep and if DirecTV and other cable providers don't want to allow us the fans to pay for it then they can go bye-bye. I'm afraid that sports not named the NFL will become irrelevant by the end of the decade unless things change and change fast. People are abandoning cable at a much faster rate now and it's time for cable and satellitte companies to finally allow the teams and the leagues to stay relevant to the next generation of consumers.

  4. That's my concern too. DirecTV and maybe other smaller cable companies could very well sue MLB and other leagues as well because of this.

  7. They haven't dumped the name at other time slots, as far as I know. What really bothers me is they have been running cold opens for a few years now. They really need to bring back an actual open.

  8. Boston has abandoned this look. Any other CMG stations also dropping this format?

  9. I understand the building is an albatross, but...wouldn't you just let the real estate side of the business handle it and just keep the move going? Is a real estate transaction in Denver such a big deal for Scripps, they would be bankrupted, give up the ABC affiliation, shut down their news division, and become a Katz subchannel farm if they couldn't sell one building? Also the tone of this from the GM...nobody in the news and old entertainment divisions of the stations designed or built it, and this basically sounds like he's mad at them for his 'collaboration' issues in 2021.

  10. Really? I could have sworn I read somewhere years ago that he came up with the idea of having those unique domain names while running KNWA and corporate liked it and decided to expand it to the whole group. Not sure I understand your statement "local is consistent in messaging and not looking like Tegna, Gray or Sinclair with their very copy/paste approach." Sinclair is pretty homogenous in their approach (I know very well having familiarity with their operations, so I'm not surprised). But TEGNA and Gray seem to leave a lot of the direction of their stations up to the
