WRAL is the long-time ACC basketball affiliate in this market, and
each season we must carry a certain number of games in primetime. Some
are great games; others are not. We must take them all.
Our standard practice is to move the affected network programs overnight so 100% of our viewers at least have the opportunity to record the shows.
When basketball is on the schedule, we publicize the change on the WRAL-TV Facebook page, on Twitter and we mention it on television. You can also check the up-to-date TV schedule online for any changes.
We understand the frustration that these conflicts cause, but we
always try to make the programs available in some fashion. Many of the
network shows are available for viewing online the next day at cbs.com,
so that is another option.
