Channel 13 Lost Signal

While some of us were relieved that the pathetic "free" broadcaster for Angels games, My13, lost their signal about 45-seconds prior to Mark Ellis' walk-off grand slam on Sunday, the precedent for this is unacceptable.

According to the dying newspaper industry's Orange County Register ...

"There was a communication issue on the production end that we're looking into," said Angels vice president for communications Tim Mead.
The glitch apparently resulted from problems between AT&T and Vyvx, the satellite carrier for Sunday's game.

Understand folks, that after about two minutes of blank screen, the broadcast resumed with THREE commercials back-to-back, and THEN joined the trashy My13 coverage in progress - an image of a dead child's body surrounded by police and gawking passersby. If My13's strip club-themed promos for its That 70s Show reruns were not enough to keep you from letting the kids watch the game, the dead kid behind the police tape should have been.

Bottom Line: My13 has no decency, be that its Stepin Fetchit programming, its satellite chaos, its inappropriate adult-oriented promotional spots or its lightning-fast cut-aways from Angel games to rehash syndicated programming we have already seen ten times. There is no loyalty to the Angels and let me assure you all, there will be NONE returned. I specifically walked past Jack-in-the-Box, where I had planned to purchase a smoothie after seeing the commercials on My13 Angel broadcasts. But not now. I won't buy any new product advertised on My13 telecasts.

Arte, stay home and watch a broadcast or two. Enjoy the depression like the rest of us.
