We are already one week into the year 2020 and the 2020s … and some parts of the new year and the new decade have not been good to me, especially when it comes to the shows and channels that I watch on a daily basis. On New Year’s Day, I was not able to watch PCNC after being able to do so for the last three or four years or so. It was on Comcast Channel 35 for a few years or so. For a few days or so, a message appeared on a black screen while I was able to watch Channel 35 for, maybe, a “split second” or so … and, on Monday, the channel officially disappeared from our cable lineup. Since I’m not able to watch PCNC anymore, I now have to change my weekday viewing habits a little bit. In the mornings, I will watch The Hallmark Channel and CNN … and, in the afternoons and the early evening hours, I will watch just CNN. That may be a good thing for me in this case, because, later this year, CNN will celebrate its 40th anniversary on the air. CNN is on Comcast Channel 32. Hopefully, I’ll be able to watch PCNC in one form or another in another location at some point this year, but, until then, I won’t be able to do so in my own home.
Just so you know, PCNC is short for Pittsburgh Cable News Channel … and CNN is short for Cable News Network.
