UNC-NCSU will be televised

CHAPEL HILL --- The University of North Carolina will play host to NC State in football on Saturday, October 9, at 6:05 p.m., as was originally scheduled earlier this week.

WTVD, the ABC-owned station in Durham, will provide the game live and free of charge on Time Warner Cable's Digital channel 213. WTVD will also show a taped delay broadcast of the game at midnight on ABC-11.

People in the viewing area who have a digital receiver may also see the game live at channel 11-3.

The game is sold out at Kenan Stadium.

"We appreciate the work the staffs at WTVD and Time-Warner Cable did this week to get the game televised to as many people as possible," says Carolina Director of Athletics Dick Baddour.

"We had discussions about doing a pay-per-view telecast, but the earliest window we could begin a pay-per-view game was at 7 p.m.," says UNC Director of Marketing and Promotions Norwood Teague. "We believe those fans who had bought tickets would prefer the earlier 6 p.m. start.

"This is the best of both worlds," continues Teague. "We've heard a lot of positive comments from our fans who attended the 6:00 game against Georgia Tech and those fans who were unable to get tickets to the NC State game now have multiple opportunities to watch."
