Under a new contract reached late Thursday between Time Warner Cable and Walt Disney Co., which owns ESPN, the ESPN3 website will soon be available to Time Warner Cable customers in this region for the first time.
But because the companies' dispute wasn't resolved until Thursday, Time Warner Cable engineers and programmers may not have enough time to get the system set up by Saturday night, said spokesman Keith Poston.
"We obviously would love to have it available for our subscribers and we're working as fast as we can to make it happen," he said. "I'm sure fans will be disappointed, but it's not something they've had before. This site wasn't available last season."
Annabelle Myers says she's been assured by ESPN that the game will be available on TWC. If you're in Raleigh and can't make it to the stadium, you can watch the game at The Brickhouse. I'm sure there are other options as well.
