MPBN announces Downton Abbey-football conflict support line

 The Maine Public Broadcasting Network is announcing the creation of a resource line formed for households in conflict Sunday, Jan. 20, between watching the end of the New England Patriots and Baltimore Ravens game and the airing of Episode 3 of Season 3 of Downton Abbey.

The automated line at 207-330-4549 will direct callers to alternate viewing times of the show.

“We recognize that the New England Patriots game may extend past 9 p.m. and Downton Abbey fans may not have control of the remote control at that crucial time,” stated Cory Morrissey, MPBN Marketing Director. “We want Downton fans to know when and how they will next have access to this episode. It’s a solution we believe the Earl of Grantham would endorse.”

MPBN will post Sunday’s episode on the Video On Demand service found on MPBN.Net on Monday, Jan. 21, and will rebroadcast the Jan. 20th show at 8 p.m. Jan. 27, to be followed by the airing of the regularly scheduled episode at 9 p.m.
