Cowboys game against Packers to be carried locally

From Staff Reports

Nov. 21, 2007 - Dallas Cowboys fans received good news this week from Suddenlink cable company - the Cowboys game with Green Bay on Thursday, Nov. 29 will be televised locally, according to company officials.

The game will be carried by the NFL Network, which reaches only about 30 percent of the homes in America, and is not available on Suddenlink.

However, the NFL also has an agreement that one local station in each of the market areas of the two teams playing can carry the game. That station has been designated by the Cowboys as KDFI (Channel 12 locally), according to Pete Able, Suddenlink's vice president of community relations.

Because Sulphur Springs is considered part of the Dallas/Fort Worth viewing area, the game will be carried on the local cable.

Winnsboro, however, is not part of the DFW link and will not carry the game.

Both the KDFI website ( and Suddenlink's web site ( have confirmed the station will carry the game.
