Comcast’s extra ads ruin NFC championship game conclusion in some areas


It wasn’t just RIM that had designs on the limelight during the football action last night. Comcast affiliates inserted extra commercials over the NFC Championship game last night, thoughtfully playing the clips over the climax of the match ‘twixt the Giants and the 49ers. Frustrated fans who missed out on parts of the fourth quarter and overtime promptly began voicing dissent on the company’s support forums. The Washington Post has a quote from spokesperson Amiee Metrick indicating the problems were due to a possible «equipment failure» at local affiliate resulting in the ill-timed ads reported in Oregon and Washington D.C. We’ve heard that it’s offering a $10 credit and an apology, but it seems unlikely to soothe the brow of those — like the person who recorded video of the incident you can see after the break — thinking of switching to FiOS.
