Many people are asking on social media if the blackout will continue with the move to NBC and WTHR.

 

Sorry to bring a year old thread back up but according to upcoming TV listings, yes.

 

WTHR will continue the longtime Indy TV tradition by blacking out the upcoming Indy 500 race until night-time to try to get racegoers to actually attend the race at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

 

Of course, you pretty much got every Indy TV station doing live morning race day coverage from 5am-noon. This is pretty much next Sunday on WTHR:

 

6:00-7:00 PM: Eyewitness News at 6:00

7:00-8:00 PM: Indy 500 Pre-Race (should be 11am on NBC)

8:00-11:30 PM: Indianapolis 500 (noon on NBC)

11:30PM-12:00AM: Indy 500 Post-Race (3:30pm on NBC)

12:00-12:30 AM: Eyewitness News Nightbeat

I'm sorry, but IMO, this is the stupidest tradition ever. I understand the reasoning behind it. I just don't think it should be done.

The race is on Sunday. They'll air NBC primetime programming during the race like WRTV did with ABC primetime shows during the race.
