It's no surprise that Grand Junction is Broncos' territory, it's also no surprise that in February analog TV will stop completely but it may be a surprise to fans that pre–season Broncos games will only be broadcast on the Western Colorado CW.
The games would normally be seen on NBC, but with the Olympics taking precedence the Bronco games had to be moved.
Jared Cooper of US Tech says, "the average retail for the box is $59.95 plus tax." However, there is a government rebate for the box that you can apply for on-line. "You bring us the coupon you immediately get that $40 rebate so then out of pocket it would just be the $19.95 plus tax," says Cooper.
You will need the box eventually in February, but if your rabbit ears can't pick up the CW on channel 39 or 47 you will need a digital receiver now to catch the action. However if you have a new TV chances are you already have a digital receiver.
Cooper says, "everything from about two years on up will have the digital tuner built in."
So how do you know if your TV has one? Cooper says, "when you are doing a channel search lets say you go into your menu of your television and do a common search for channels an option would be search for digital channels. so if you don't have that option to search you don't have it."
The Western Colorado CW isn't carried by Dish or Direct TV, so anyone wanting to catch the Broncos' pre–season games will have to watch the old fashion way, over the air. But subscribers who already have a digital receiver can just plug an antenna into their box or TV to pick up the CW feed.
