For as long as I can remember Comcast's west coast subscribers have gotten the east coast feeds of networks like AMC. So a show like Walking Dead that airs at, say, 9PM on the east coast, simultaneously airs at 6PM on the west coast. Well they abruptly changed the west coast to 3 hours delay. So the show that airs at 9PM local time on the east coast now also airs at 9PM local time on the west coast. Three hours later. This is supposed to be "Great News!" because someone at Comcast thinks there's still such a thing as "Prime Time Viewing". Apparently nobody at Comcast (or the affected networks) understands that one of the last advantages the cable company has over competitors is the ability to unveil a new episode of a popular show like The Walking Dead simultaneously to the entire country. So everyone (who wants to) gets to watch it for the first time, at the same time. By delaying the west coast, it means some of us won't see the shows we like for at least 24 hours due to the time shifting. Well hell, if I can't get the big premiere on Comcast, then I might as well cut the cord because as soon as I'm forced to time-shift, I have other options that will cost less than Comcast. I can go to iTunes and pay only for exactly what I want to see, not 300 channels I never watch just so I can get what I do want, when I want it. Bah.
