Xfinity

I still don't get why the name exists, other than to try and hide the fact that the Comcast name in many communities is about as popular as Al-Qaida.

Where's the penalty?

Comcast spends 13.8 Billion and pays 800K "fine" for flat out lying to the Feds, no one gets punished and everyone makes money right? If it were Joe Blow, lying to the Feds gets jail time AND a fine.
Just more proof that only in Amerika can you buy innocence and justice, Amerika where the Government is for sale to the highest bidder. The stench from Washington DC sickens the common man

Re: Where's the penalty?

This is government AND corporate corruption at the highest level. In the current system, sometimes there is not much difference between the regulators and regulated.

Shape of things to come
Since Comcast bought NBC shouldn't the NBC logo be under Comcast's?

There are overseas companies which could have come up with a better logo for a fraction of the price. Then again there are tens of thousand of grade school children which also could have done a better job and probably would have settled for a year of internet access as payment.

I wonder if they'll buy out the local TV stations

My favorite TV station for local newscasts is 22 News WWLP-TV, which is the local NBC affiliate. It is currently owned by LIN corp.

I wonder if the terms of their NBC affiliation prohibit them from getting into carriage disputes with Comcast. WWLP-TV is currently fighting with Charter.

Or maybe Comcast never gets into carriage disputes, gives into the TV station/programming provider demands, and just turns around and raises rates on it's ratepayers.

I have my DVRs set to record the 22 News at Noon, 5 and 6 pm newscasts.

I like the old logo better. Everybody seems to be changing their logos and packaging lately. Wendy's, Sears, TD Banknorth, and a few others have changed their logos. Gap had to go back to their old logo after customer backlash. Even sodas have changed their packaging with Mountain Dew being changed to Mtn. Dew. My favorite is Diet Mountain Dew which is packaged as Diet Mtn. Dew.

I wish they would bring back the old Pepsi logos of the early '90s. And I remember the days when a can of soda out of the machine was 55 cents. Now they sell it by the bottle at $1.50 per container and they have even put debit card readers on the soda/candy machines.

I still wish Comcast had succeeded in buying Disney way back when. Then we'd have this:

I remember back when I was a student at WNEC (WNEU now) in the 80's and that station was still under the control of William L. Putnam. He used to have interesting editorials. A college friend lived near their tower and used to joke he could hit 22 with a .22.

Award for most un-original

NBC has the worst logo already, they needed something totally new.

Wait... Is this a joke?

Wow that is a terrible logo. I am in disbelief that they would do something so hideous.

I guess this means that they truly want to be the same brand.

Leona Helmsley was right but she didn't broaden her scope. Yes, only the little people pay taxes but the little people also go to jail and get the bulk of government punishment. Had she kept her mouth quiet, they would not have singled her out to make an example off. Other than her, and Martha Stewart, there aren't too many big wigs that get carted off to jail.

Highly doubtful as affiliate agreements are usually for 10 years, and this one in all probability predates the Comcast take-over.

Possibly. If Comcast owned the local affiliate, they'd get paid on retransmission rights and paid as a cable service provider. The reality is however, that free over the air TV is NOT in Comcast's best interest. Comcast would much rather have you paying an exorbitant amount of money per month for the most cheaply produced programming targeted at the lowest common denominator.

NBC = Government propaganda

They should have just put a picture of Obama or used the Democrat party logo instead of the peacock.
