Comcast Thinks A 31 Hour Tape Delay Is Just Fine

[Bumped way late, just because it should be front-page news that our Chicagoland Comcast subscribers are getting fucked. Also, according to comments, the game will be televised... Sunday evening. Seriously.--OPS]

AAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGHHHHHHH!

Comcast finally gets the Big Ten Network, so I can finally watch Hawkeye sports.  This is great, right?

Not so much.  For this coming weekend, they are only showing one game during the 11 AM slot, OSU vs Youngstown.  One of five that are scheduled.  ONE!  When I emailed asking about this, they responded that "Currently we only have one official Big Ten Channel. There's no current solid plans of adding any extra overflow channels at this moment to your lineup."

What the hell kind of truncated channel lineup is this?  So basically, they got the PR boost from saying they they have the BTN, but we, as customers, are still screwed.

I hate them.
