Area viewers will be able to watch Wednesday’s Va. Tech-Miami game on live TV after all.
My19 (WDBJ Digital 7.2) in Roanoke arranged Tuesday to air the game live at 7 p.m., filling a void created by a CSN decision Monday. My19 will air the Hokies instead of the Maryland-Georgia Tech game.
The Hokies game was originally scheduled to be televised live on CSN’s overflow channels, CSN Plus and Comcast Network.
But the regular CSN channel will now air tonight’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 at 10 p.m. on the regular CSN channel.
CSN will show the Hokies live on its satellite overflow channels — Dish Network Ch. 453 and DirecTV Ch. 657. The taped broadcast will still be on CSN at 10 p.m.
Also Tuesday, the blackout in Virginia of the live ESPN3.com broadcast of the Hokies game was lifted. So viewers around the commonwealth will now be able to see tonight’s game live on the Internet.
