local bars or leave the city in order to watch their NBA teams in the playoffs Monday night For the fifth time in three rounds of the playoffs local residents living within the 35 mile radius of San Antonio could not tune in to the game on television Even those willing to pay for special home cable connection had no option Fans will have to deal with the blackout again on Wednesday when the series resumes for Game 2 at the Alamodome The blackout stems from an NBA rule that protects companies which purchase broadcast rights to the game Paragon Cable of San Antonio bought the rights to air the game and has been charging its customers on a payper view basis The company however docs not provide service to New Braunfels The game could be seen on TNT by resi dents living outside the 35mile TCI Cable of Texas the cable compa ny which services New Braunfels could nego tiate with the Spurs organization and Paragon if it wanted to purchase the right to offer pay perview for area TCI customers Lawrence Payne Spurs vice president for broadcasting said TCI had not approached the Spurs concerning a deal for broadcast rights during the playoffs TCI officials said tney tried to contact the Spurs late Monday to obtain information about costs We left a message with the Spurs organi said Viola Gucrra business manager of TCI Were looking into getting the rights to put Wednesdays game on Payne said working out a deal and figuring the technical aspects of payperview broad casting is a process that generally can not be accomplished on short notice Paragon which is charging its customers to get the game could not be reached for comment Though local Spurs fans have been unable to catch home playoff games for several weeks some Rockets fans were experiencing the blackout for the first time Jack Miscoc a Houston fan who lives in New Braunfels said the blackout left him uncertain about where or if he would be able to view the game I know this has been happening to Spurs fans in the playoffs but Rockets fans dont go for Miscoc said The thing is Id be willing to pay the but I cant even do that because its not available here Thats ridicu Miscoc planned to watch the game at cither the Ice House or Watering Hole the only two local businesses showing the game Monday night Both places reported brisk business from fans willing to pay a coverage which com pensates for the payperview fee New Braunfels fans arent the only ones in the blackoutarea who arc left without the option of payperview Seguin also falls into that category Some people living outside the 35mile radius have reported being blacked out Payne said he is aware of those fans unfor tunate situation but said they should contact their cable company about it The 35mile blackout radius originates from the courthouse in downtown San Antonio but some resident living 42miles from that point say they are being blacked out H Rockets steal show in the Alamodome Fourthquarter comeback gives Houston 1game edge
