When does the streaming start on Super Bowl Sunday?
CBS will start livestreaming about 30 minutes before kickoff at 5 p.m. CT.
TDS is providing customers these options because TDS and Nexstar Media Group have yet to reach an agreement in its contract. The CBS stations and communities impacted include:
KBIM (CBS) – Hobbs, Lovington, Carlsbad, Alamogordo, and Ruidoso, New Mexico
KRQE (CBS) – Socorro and Truth or Consequences, New Mexico
KREZ (CBS) – Cortez, Colorado
KLAS (CBS) – Mesquite, Nevada
KLBK (CBS) – Seminole, Texas
Due to a contract dispute, Nexstar, which operates 174 stations and reaches 38% of all U.S. households, is preventing TDS from broadcasting channels such as ABC, CBS and FOX in select markets in Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada and Texas.
