It's the 21st century you Morons.
Every other REAL TV station but you feed Comcast, Dish, and Direct TV with a Fiber Feed to offset events like this. Your actions show that you have no idea how to run a broadcast operation. OH excuse me you do know how to run them cheaply!

Just another case of inmates running the asylum. This used to be a class A tv station until DeathStar engulfed it.

Too bad the outage was not longer. It was such an exciting game. Half-time was the highlight
of the Broadcast. Give It Away Now!

The feed never went down on Comcast in Little Rock, so they must fiber to them. I was told years ago that Dish and Direct mandated a true off-air signal and didn't WANT a fiber feed. But that was a long time ago....

I don't know if they still do or not but KATV used to microwave their signal out to Clear Channel where it was uplinked to Dish and DirecTV. Don't know if any of the other stations did that.

Worst Super Bowl and half-time show in history. Even the commercials were terrible. Sad so many people paid a bunch of money to have to watch that crap (game and half-time show)

From DSLReports.com: "Los Angeles area Time Warner Cable customers were more than a little annoyed over the weekend when the cable company's feed of the Super Bowl suddenly went dark during the end of the second quarter, and stayed out for more than an hour. The outage didn't do Time Warner Cable any favors at a time when they're trying to justify a higher price tag from Charter Communications, who has been highlighting Time Warner Cable shortcomings to the opposite end goal. Time Warner Cable has responded by offering impacted customers a $5 credit (the company highlights that only the SD game feed was impacted)."

Looks like Little Rock wasn't the only city to have trouble with the S.B.
