Yup, they are getting a not full version, and renting it as full

Re: Comcast deleting parts of movie scenes

I disagree with Comcast's reply. I have downloaded two movies that were definitely edited/cut from what I saw on regular TV:-- Madd Max (the first) and The Birds. I’ve seen these moving many times and I know exactly where they were cut. Moreover, you can also tell by the way the scenes that are edited jump.

Although I don't have explicit recollection of each missing thing, the one part of a scene near the end of the movie was missing where Susan Cooper crashes the BMW into the tree and then enters the foyer of the mansion where De Luca is going to kill her colleague Fein.  She tells him she is useful because the knows about Dudaev the buyer and makes a comment about not having guys with Russian flag tattoos on their hands meeting him because his brother was killed by the Russians. I remember this scene from a few weeks ago and verified online that she does in fact say something to this effect, but in tonight's movie on Comcast that part of the scene was cut out. I am concerned about renting movies from Comcast if I am not actually getting the movie I rented, but rather some interpretation from Comcast about what parts of the movie can be cut. Has anyone else noticed this or have ideas to why it is happening?  Thanks!


 

Comcast does not edit movies.  Comcast only retransmits the movie that the original provider ( producer/network/owner ) is supplying to Comcast for that transmission.
