How many people does this affect? What is the television population of the mountain and pacific time zones? (If I read correctly, Eastern and Central are getting no change.) NBC will still be holding back selected events to be aired in prime time. While the additional delay for mountain and pacific time zones is part of the complaint, the embargo of selected events to create a prime time programming block seemed to be the prime complaint - and the west coast will still be waiting until their prime time to see events that ended much earlier in the day. It is a step ... but NBC is still protecting their bread and butter prime time.
