Glad to See Comcast Continues to Sell Out, Even For Playoff Hockey


Really with the superimposed ads during the playoffs? Have a little bit of dignity… just a shred? I'm half expecting to see a Miller Ford ad during Game 2.

  1. What does this blog post say? I didn’t get to read it because I was too distracted by all the ads for Philly Phaithful t-shirts and Crossing Broad tickets and BC sports and half off Red Zone coupons and $10 tailgates. Whatever it was, I’m sure it was insightful and not at all hypocritical. Keep up the great work

  2. And yet your articles continue to take a minimum of 2 complete minutes to load from at least 9 ADS PER PAGE.

  3. They’ve been like that all season. I’ve never liked it. I noticed the Sharks doing it last year and was happy we didn’t here in Philly. Then this season happen. Oyi.

  4. I’m sure the only difference between regular season ads and playoff ads is Comcast is getting paid more to show them now. So yea they will stay up for the post season.

  5. Comcast also decided to black-out the game at Penn State, when i play extra for the fucking channel up here, had to watch a British ESPN feed online that was all grainy and blurry, about to go ape-shit on some poor Comcast telephone operator

  6. relax people those ads are annoying and so are the ads on here. ads are annoying everywhere, but learn to live with it. its how people make money.

  7. Couldn’t watch the game in Shippensburg. 2.5 hours away (where i’m at for school). Versus (on Comcast Cable) showed the Bruins/Habs game, and a blackout.
    Disgrace. I thought hockey was having a great rebound year, but here’s hundreds of amateur fans trying to watch their first Flyers playoff hockey games turned away on college campuses.
    That feed of ESPN UK is how we had to watch the game.

  8. first, i bet you didn’t think this post would have backfired like it did. Second, by you posting this, you are just making their advertising even more successful. Third, there’s money to be made – make it.
