Out-of-town Pittsburgh Steelers fans will largely be out of luck when it comes to viewing this Sunday’s game against the Houston Texans.

The Steelers and Texans will kick off at 1 p.m. on Sunday on CBS, with local affiliate KDKA carrying the game in Pittsburgh. Spero Dedes and Adam Archuleta will be on the call.

But outside of Pittsburgh, your chances of seeing the game are pretty slim. According to 506 Sports, CBS affiliates in Scranton and Erie, Pennsylvania, throughout West Virginia and most of Texas will be airing the game, but that is about it. Even in Texas, those in the Dallas and El Paso markets will get other games.
