TECH | If they’re gonna be late, CBS will txt you

In ABC, CBS on July 25, 2007 at 10:14 pm

Starting this fall, if an NFL game is going to run past 7 p.m./ET, CBS will text viewers to let them know their shows will be delayed, then text them again when the exact start times of the evening’s programs have been determined. How cool is that? It’s encouraging that the networks are embracing new technologies.

I can’t find the signup form on the site yet, but it’s something to keep an eye on as football season nears.
