Watching the LA Chargers on Local Television (TBD)

A big change has occurred with the LA Chargers.  Up until recently, you could watch the LA Chargers at KFMB-TV, a virtual and VHF digital channel 8, which is a CBS-affiliated television station located in LA, California.  KSWB-TV, a virtual channel 69 (UHF digital channel 19), which is a Fox-affiliated television station located in San Diego, California, also hosted their games.  Now, with the team’s move to Los Angeles, it is uncertain which network will take over.  We will certainly post it as soon as it becomes public though!
