When I went to bed last night CNN was on Channel 33. As of this morning it’s somewhere in the 50s – I’m not sure where.
I’ve got the World Series of Poker on Channel 29 as I type this. Last night ESPN was at 49.
What is Comcast doing? Their mailer said they were clustering similar channels. OK – sounds good, but yesterday MSNBC, Fox News, CNN, CNBC, Headline News and Weather Channel were 31-36. Today the order is different, the channel numbers are different and Weather Channel has been moved away from the pack¹.
I took a quick peek at my DVR before I left for work. All my shows are still set, but they’re set for the wrong channel. There are going to be a lot of unhappy people.
There are supposed to be some new channels too, but as of this morning they were blanks. I assume they’ll be on by the time I get home.
How long will it take to get used to these changes? How will this affect the ‘legacy’ channels that aren’t moving? We shall see.
Meanwhile, for the next few weeks tuning the TV will be like writing the date on checks in January.
¹ – Personal note – good.
