View Full Version : Chiefs Question about the MNF game.

09-08-2010, 09:23 PM
For those who live outside of KC might know better since KC has been without a MNF game for a while.

I have a friend of mine who lives in an apartment and he does not have ESPN. I remember when ESPN carried Sunday Night Football, they aired the game on ABC when Kansas City played on SNF a few years ago. Does anyone know if ABC, NBC or another local channel will carry the game for those without ESPN? I'm sure there will be live streams, but seeing it on TV is obviously better.

Yeah, there will be a local channel that will carry the game. Positively.

I don't have a San Diego'ian TV schedule... But that just doesn't make any sense since ABC and ESPN are owned by the same company . I don't see ESPN letting anyone except ABC carry the local broadcast..

Those in Kansas City might wanna tune in an hour early. Special show from Arrowhead about 40 minutes from kickoff.

Last year the game was on ESPN, NBC, CBS, and ABC in San Diego.

(We played in MNF week 1 in the same time slot)

Thanks for the Clarification. If that is indeed how clarification is spelled...
