Re: A New Network On Comcast? Scam

First I've heard of it. It seems it is an NBC Universal channel normally sold for overseas cable/sat companies.
»en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_Channel

Doesn't seem to be any reason to bring it to the U.S. when all of the Universal owned channels that the content originates on are already on American cable/sat systems (i.e. NBC, USA, SyFy, E!, etc).

If you look at the video author's notes, it sounds more like it might just be a hypothetical demo of his work in the TV production industry (doing titles and promos), rather than a real thing.

As someone who has been in professional video production, I can state that the clip is not professionally done. It doesn't even come up to demo reel quality. Just ignore it.

Lots of mistakes:

- It uses the old Comcast logo, not the new Comcast NBC logo. Plus wouldn't it be Xfinity?

- The calendar starts with Monday on the left. Calendars in the US start with Sunday on the left.

I would guess the YouTube channel owner made it for fun or some sort of school animation project and has nothing to do with Comcast.

Market research. We're the crash test dummies. They're testing out the concept and the name to see if it has any traction.
