Tried watching yesterday’s Alabama-Texas A&M game on CBS and it wasn’t working. No big deal. It’s college football. Alabama is gonna run train on everyone and win the National Championship because college football is boring and predictable like that. But what is unacceptable is when Turtleboy and millions of other people in the Boston metropolitan area went to put on CBS today and still found this:
Ya know, because it’s a Sunday during football season and the Patriots are on this channel at 4:25. Kind of a big deal. It’s only gonna cost the station millions and millions of dollars. Here’s what WBZ, the local CBS affiliate has to say about this:
Liars. I love how these assholes try to pawn it off on someone else. It’s not working on Charter. Ask anyone in Worcester or nearby.
What pisses me off about this is the vagueness of their reply. Just be honest with us. It’s 11:00 right now. I still have time to make plans. I will drive to Foxwoods if I have to watch this game. I just need to know so I can have time to prepare. Don’t give me this “we’ll restore it as soon as possible” bullshit though. What’s that supposed to mean? An hour? Tomorrow? Next week? Just let me know and stop being assholes.
Look, I don’t know what most of this shit means. Nor do I wanna learn. It’s my job to pay money for cable, and in return it should be on each and every time I hit the power button. I don’t give a shit about your excuses or fancy technical talk. Have a Goddamn backup plan in place. Something. Under no circumstances can you allow this to happen and expect people not to riot.
So….what do we do? There’s only three games on at 4:25 so you can always put on Red Zone if you get that. At least with the minimal amount of games at that time you know they’ll have the Patriots on a lot. Word is Fios and Comcast people are getting it, but not the Charter and satellite folks. I don’t know what to do. Scared. Please help.
