Motorola and Cincy’s Channel 12 to Give Away FREE Tickets to Texans Game Saturday

With an assist from wide receiver Chad Ochocinco, the Bengals avoided a TV blackout Sunday and announced Friday the game against the Texans at Paul Brown Stadium airs live on Cincinnati’s Channel 12 at 1 p.m. in extending their franchise record sellout streak to 47.

The Bengals, Local 12 (CBS affiliate WKRC-TV in Cincinnati) and Motorola worked together to ensure the blackout would be lifted. As part of this plan, Motorola will give away 1,200 tickets (600 pairs of tickets) to Bengals fans for free, starting at 11:30 am Saturday at the North Ticket Office (next to the Bengals Pro Shop) at PBS. Motorola is a long-time sponsor of the Bengals and has a newly aligned partnership with Ochocinco.

For Saturday’s ticket giveaway, complimentary parking will be available in Lot D, located on Mehring Way east of Elm Street. Tickets will be given away on a first-come, first served basis to fans 16 and over.

“We are thrilled with the response from our fans, Motorola and Local12, and we are pleased that Bengals fans across the region can watch our game on Sunday,” said Katie Blackburn, Bengals executive vice president in a news release. “We have great fans, and a sold-out Jungle will give us a real home field advantage.”

The lifting of the blackout means that the Bengals will extend to 47 their franchise-record streak of consecutive sellouts for regular and postseason games. The streak is now sure to reach at least 48. The next home game — Oct. 25 vs. Chicago – is a sellout.

In addition to WKRC-TV (Local 12) in Cincinnati, the Chicago game now is cleared to be broadcast live on the other two CBS affiliates in the Bengals home market — Channel 7 in Dayton. Ohio, and Channel 27 in Lexington, Ky
