News for Saturday, November 26th, 2016

  • The main broadcast channel for WALA-TV had two special editions of a local entertainment and lifestyle program of theirs ("Studio 10") within twenty-four hours of each other between this past Thursday and this Friday on the twenty-fourth and twenty-fifth days of this November respectively (the one they had on the channel this past Thursday was dedicated to various ways of preparing food whereas the one for this past Friday was dedicated to various musical performances).
  • According to a digital statement attributed to the Comcast Corporation sent to customers of their cable TV system in the county of Mobile in southwest Alabama (Comcast Cablevision of Mobile) this November, there was a plan to raise the fee for using a digital transport adapter to receive cable TV programming through the system (from $3.99 to $5.99) on the Sunday of the first day of January of the next calendar year (2017) and apply it to any new customer of the system who may be using such a device to receive its programming by then before applying it to any current customer of the system who may be using such a device to receiving its programming on the Thursday of the first day of June for that year. 
  • WALA-TV and WPMI-TV each had a local news program without an opening sequence (or title sequence) in their broadcasts this Saturday (the one for WPMI-TV during the the first half of the hour of 5:00 p.m. ("Local 15 News at 5:00 p.m.") began with videos of two persons commenting about news of a former president for the nation of Cuba (Fidel Castro Ruz) dying this past Friday whereas the one for WALA-TV during the hour of 10:00 p.m. (it was simply titled "FOX 10 News" due to its time period not being one of their regular time periods for local news programming (10:20 p.m. to 10:49 p.m.) in recent times) began with an animated sequence normally used for "breaking news" on their local news programs in recent times (in the case of the program for this Saturday, the news was about a "possible shooting" in the city of Mobile in southwest Alabama this Saturday).
