BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB)- Not all Bills fans will be able to watch the London game on TV but U.S. Senator Chuck Schumer hopes to change that for one part of New York.
He’s asking the NFL to change its contract at the last minute to include broadcasting to Rochester. Right now, only people living in the Buffalo and Jacksonville television markets will have access.
Fans will be able to stream the game for free online at Yahoo.com.
Senator Schumer said Rochester fans should have the choice to watch the game on TV because of their connection to the team.
“Rochester is part of the Bills’ heartland, after all they even have their training at St. John Fisher,” said Schumer. “There are so many Bills fans in the Rochester area and if they can’t see the game, it’s not fair.”
Senator Schumer also said the next time the Bills play overseas, the NFL should include broadcasting to Rochester in its contract.
