Why does Comcast choose such horrible stories to show

Why does Comcast choose such horrible stories to show

I am sure I speak for many when I say some of the stories covered on XFinity are horrible. Today I saw a picture of a Python wrapping itself around a poor goat. Who wants to see such stuff like that!

That's not a story. I happens to be real life.

 

It's your choice to watch something else.

None.

 

I havn't hunted for 45 years. Don't even own a gun anymore. Just because you don't like somthing shown here, doesn't give you the right to control what everone else might want to watch.

 

As I replied, you control whatever you want to watch,

Re: Why does Comcast choose such horrible stories to show ... ESPECIALLY CONSTANT STORIES OF DEATH ...

On a similar vien / topic, I would hope Comcast would reconsider what little blurbs

appear in the Screensaver app for the Set-top Media Box (SM.  It always has

notices that people have died.  Especially when families or individuals are 

experiencing family losses (like we are), it is not positive to see so many death

stories.  Like death of this actor, death of that actor, etc, etc, etc.

 

I wish it could have more "positive" stories that flash up in the 20 to 50 words

(probably, just guessing) that it shows.  Not airline crashes, etc.

 

Or, maybe not just positive but more just neutral stuff.  Please, add that to your

list.  

 

Again, this is on the Motorola screensaver for the SMB directly on Televisions.

Not on web or anywhere else.  It shows the time on one side and alternates

sides.


Thanks.

Not trying to control what is shown, but topics like MH370 or this-or-that actor constantly all day

not finding wreckage and/or dying, is just not the best things to pop up.  Politics okay.  Or, storms

coming, etc.  Just try not to have stuff with so much stark seriousness.

I am not lying.  One time, when there were associated deaths, it was like 2 or 3 messages about a 

death before it cycled.  Yes, of course, there are people who might want to know about Nimoy's,

then the Nobel Prize guy, then that bullfighter, etc.  Too much in one short period of time for 

people when they are in a Grieving Period.  

 

Thanks for understanding.
