I understand that. and can sympothise: but I must say that having the coverage using identical maps and grahpics, identical data, and identical warning information on 4, 6.1, 6.2, 8.1, 8.2, 8.3, 13.1, 13.2, 13.3, 23.1 and 59.1 is a little over kill.
The big 3 in Indy have sub channels, If they put the network feed unaltered, not overlaid with warning tickers on the second or third subchannel, the problem would be gone, as I said, I understand the need to overtake the primary hd feed, cable satellite and whatnot, but when you have 3 channels, just bounce the game to one of those feeds for those of us with rabbit ears to supplement cable, or the handfull of digital cable systems that carry all 3. It is maddening, cable channels don't do this thing, but you are in just as much danger weather wise regardless of weather the game is on Versus or NBC.
also, I think everyone lost WTHR-D as tehy had a transmitter issue, at least that is what they said on the news following the 1/3 of the game that we were so graciously allowed to see.
