Abstract

If viewers prefer to watch the news as soon as they get home from work, how should competing television stations schedule their broadcasts so as to maximize the number of viewers? Given a Hotelling location problem with a directional constraint (viewers can watch any time after they get home but not at all before), the authors show that there exists no pure strategy Nash equilibrium.
