CBS will not be airing today’s Indianapolis Colts vs. Oakland Raiders game, instead they will be broadcasting the Chicago Bears vs. the Cincinnati Bengals game.
On WSBT’s Facebook page, who is the CBS affiliate in the area, wrote, “PROGRAMMING NOTE: WSBT has been assigned the Bear’s game by CBS today. If you’re a Bears fan, you’re thrilled. If you’re a Colts fan, not so much.”
They continued saying that it is a difficult situation for them, when both teams are playing in the same window on CBS.
WSBT says that this will be the only time the conflict occurs, and that they will be airing all remaining Colts that the station has broadcasting rights to this season.
