In all the hulabaloo about the NFL Nework and cable companies, it’s often forgetten that fans who live in the TV markets of competing professional teams can still watch those games on local broadcast TV stations, subject to standard network blackout rules. For instance, the Dec. 22 contest between the Cowboys and the Panthers will be televised on KDFI-TV, according to information posted on the home page of that station’s Web site as of Dec. 14.
Suddenlink Communications does not carry the NFL Network, but it does carry KDFI in various communities in the larger Dallas/Fort Worth television market, including but not limited to the following Texas towns …
