    2018-19 NHL (and NBA) season

    Recycled AND italicized it. But seriously, I was a fan of the entire NBC/TNF look. That should've been spread across but I digress.

    Out and About

    Actually, yeah. It would've been a much better replacement for HLN. But I guess someone's watching Forensic Files

    Only thing that could hamper NBCS N.W. would be carriage issues.

    George HW Bush dies at 94

    I think it was mentioned before that Fox wanted it's network signal sent out as clean as possible (I suppose as few frame syncs and other gear required).

    CNN Evacuated for Bomb Threat

    There'd have to be an anchor on-deck in Atlanta (or elsewhere) all-the-time. Daytime they could hypothetically switch to CNNI but the evenings they were caught with their pants down and had to go to tape. They used to do a show from LA for CNNI/US but that's over now. Hence why it took a bit of time for another anchor to come up. Keeping a crew/anchor in Atlanta during primetime would be smart but would also be costly.

    George HW Bush dies at 94

    They could've broken in, either in a commercial break, between quarters or could've done what ABC did a few weeks ago and just have the announcers throw to the news desk and come back quickly. Despite Level 1 status, I suspect the Fox affiliates I recieve turn off their splicers outside network time (or during)? Last spring when Trump held a press statement and Hannity came on the Fox network with the news, WUHF stayed with MasterChef and KAYU stayed with syndie strips. Regarding Days... doubtful. They'll probably transmit a repeat to air for international broadcasters (looking at you Global TV).

    George HW Bush dies at 94

    The National for CBC BC/News Network has updated their show. CTV has not. CNN kept Don Lemon on through the Cooper repeat and seem to be doing a recap through the Cuomo. I suspect that they'll go to International at the top of the hour. 20/20 is airing a George H.W. Bush special. Any idea if this was a change for the West Coast?

    The NBC report wrapped up at 1226am ET

    Emergency Alert System and AlertReady

    Correct. I do suspect Shaw Broadcast Services has an agreement with that particular station to receive services. I know that Canadian service providers need to find a partner to bring services cross-border. I think KSPS passes all Spokane signals for their western cable feeds.

    NBC moving network master to Denver

    There was also a Washington D.C. hot backup for FNC/FBN as of a few years ago.

    Emergency Alert System and AlertReady

    Glad to find this thread again. During the test on Wednesday after my phone went off, I looked at my TV. It was tuned to CNN when I heard "This is WTVD-TV Raleigh" before the Canadian emergency alert took over. Just wondering if the Canadian system may have triggered the U.S. alert system or not.

    Midterms Coverage

    I think they deploy some kind of other software/hardware to do those squeeze backs. I'll have to ask around but I do think that kind of software does exist. They could have very well sent a few reels of commercials to a 30 Rock control room (and it could've very well been ANY free control room at 30 Rock, they could've used 8H for example) and they could've gone back to back from one control room to another.

    The ESPN Thread

    Mods, I mistakenly put this in the wrong thread - this probably should've gone to chat even.

    The ESPN Thread

    Players Only-games have returned to NBA TV. The commentary crew is based in a slightly redressed and re-lit Studio J watching via monitors and seated at the Inside the NBA desk. I know in the NHL, each broadcaster is required to feed clean feeds back to the league (and they presumably onpass these feeds to the NHL Network), I would presume that's how NBA TV gets their feeds as well.

    A Sports Team Owning a TV Station?

    Don't forget the Mariners owning the majority of Root Sports with AT&T the balance. I'd call it Root Sports NW but I think we can retire that suffix now.
