No live telecast for Tech-Miami game
CSN announced Monday that it has dropped plans for a live telecast Wednesday of the Virginia Tech men’s basketball game at No. 5 Miami. Instead, the game will air on same-day tape at 10 p.m. on CSN.The 7 p.m. game was originally scheduled to air live on CSN’s overflow channels, CSN Plus (including Cox Ch. 9) and Comcast Network.
But the regular CSN channel will now air Wednesday’s Washington Capitals game, which originally had been scheduled to air only on NBC Sports Network. That pushes the Washington Wizards game from CSN over to CSN Plus/Comcast Network, and relegates the Hokies to a taped broadcast on the regular CSN channel.
The live ESPN3.com broadcast of the Tech game is blacked out in Virginia to give CSN exclusivity. It is not yet known if the Internet blackout will be lifted now that CSN’s telecast of the game will no longer be live.
