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.

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.
What did the Founding Fathers prescribe to address such a problem?
THE SECOND AMENDMENT.
Read the unabridged version of it.

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

Disney owns ABC (and ESPN).

Re: I wonder if they'll buy out the local TV stations
said by IowaCowboy: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.
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 support the right to keep and arm bears.
| || |said by IowaCowboy:Highly doubtful as affiliate agreements are usually for 10 years, and this one in all probability predates the Comcast take-over.
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.
said by IowaCowboy: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.
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.
Re: Award for most un-original
said by DaveDude:The NBC peacock logo was to show off their new "color" television programming when color TVs were new (1956) and then it became, "Proud as a Peacock."
NBC has the worst logo already, they needed something totally new.
It has become part of the identity like Comcast will never be known as anything else even if they tried the Xfinity name change.
NBC = Government propaganda They should have just put a picture of Obama or used the Democrat party logo instead of the peacock.
Re: That's their official logo?
said by ConstantineM:I see it's actually real. The logo is on the Comcast home page.
Are you kidding me? It's their official logo? This looks like one of those made-up pictures that you or other web-sites would have for various AT&T / T-Mobile -> AT&T-mobile style pictures!
It looks totally out of line, out of the blue and weird as an official logo, that's for sure. Probably would top the list of the worst make-overs ever.
Karl, did your graphic designer quit and went straight to Comcast? :-)

Bet it took a lot of long meetings and hard work... to come up with such an innovative and radical logo.
