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."
