3 Pittsburgh games on tv tonight and how to watch them all

Postby pittsoccer33 on Mon Sep 16, 2013 10:14 am

Tonight in Pittsburgh all three of our pro teams have games:

-Penguins on the CW

-Steelers on ESPN AND WTAE

-Pirates on Root

The good news for anyone in the Pittsburgh area is that you don't need a cable box for the Pens or Steelers. If you want to be a nerd like me and set up several hdtvs you can split your cable coming out of the wall three ways:

-one to your cable box for the Pirates

-one straight to your second tv for the Steelers

-one straight to your third tv for the Penguins

You'll need to set your 2nd and 3rd tv for CABLE or QAM in the tuner settings and run a channel scan which will take about 10 minutes. You can also use an antenna if you have one to get the CW and/or WTAE. Three games in high def quality.

Ignore the steelers game, flip between penguins and pirates is my answer.

If you are a Steelers fan I would advise against watching the game.

Can't believe I'm saying this, but I'll probably spend more time watching the Pirates.

This would be true if it was televised outside the home market (don't have MLB package). So probably will end up flipping back and forth between the other two (do have CI/sports pack, assuming DirecTV doesn't black out their own network in ROOT).

I'm hoping the Pens are on CW. Right now the guide is showing Seinfeld.

start out watching the Pens, move over to the pirates, flip over for the last 10 minutes of the Pens, flip back over to the Pirates, finish up with the Steelers before heading out to Best Buy for GTAV.

btw, CW is 503 on Fios. I must have overlooked it about 4-5 times before realizing it was at the beginning of the lineup.

I solved my probolem by watching the Penguin game only. checked in on the Pirate game once to see the final score. Also after the Pens games was totally done i watched about 15 mins of Steelers then went to bed.

Went to my daughter's jv and varsity soccer games. At least she only gave up 3 goals all night.
