Dispatches from the Front
My 89 year old father has been paying $280/month for his and my 69 year old mother’s Comcast account (he’s been paying this amount for about 5 years) – I was recently able to get his bill lowered by about $100/month by adding Comcast Voice to his plan as well as getting them on a “loyalty plan” (they’ve been with Comcast since the late 80’s). Even though the discount will only last for 2 years, my father is ecstatic that his bill has gone down.
I am, and have been a Cordkillers supporter from the beginning and before that a supporter of Frame Rate. I love the show and I am very happy that as time has progressed the video quality has improved.
I am wondering if you could bring out some merchandise to help us promote the show i.e. T-shirts, hats,…etc
Some spoilerin’ suggestions in no order
Venture Brothers (season one is on Netflix)
Black Mirror (good luck)
NATHAN BARLEY is on YouTube and you MUST WATCH it! or RE:watch it
if you watch anything, Nathan Barley, all the episodes should be on YouTube
re watch After Hours or King of Comedy
ok, more later,
Ratings for online shows is complicated and almost nobody gets everything they want out of it except the ratings company. Also why net neutrality matters to Cord-cutters.

Dispatches from the Front
Brian,Giving up on AdultSwim.com? Say it’s not so. I’m the Technology Director for Adult Swim Digital and the site operations fall under my watch. A friend forwarded your show to me with the time code where you called out a few of the problems you’re having. Usually it doesn’t take a popular Youtube channel mention to get my attention on something so serious like an interruption in video playback, but that’s how it happened this time around. However, since that’s how our paths crossed let me know how I can help. Can you tell me a little bit more about the problem you experienced? Do you recall the name of the episode in question? Going by the name of your show, I’m going to jump out on limb and say you weren’t looking at an episode premiere authenticated through a cable subscription login, but knowing for sure will help me track down the problem. Auth/Free episodes are deployed differently through our CMS. Glad to help where I can, and I’m also a big fan of your previous work on Scam School.

Hi Tom & Brian,
I am 36 years old and I have never lived in a house with a cable TV. My parents didn’t have cable and I have never gotten cable myself. I have a Windows Media Center PC and a nice antenna from Antennas Direct with some HD Homerun tuners. Me and my wife record most of our TV from the major broadcast networks and everything else we get online.
I support what Aereo is doing, particularly for areas that broadcast TV is difficult to get with an antenna. However if Aereo winning means the OTA broadcasts get nerfed then I hope they lose. I depend on the high quality content being broadcast freely and I don’t want to have to start paying for channels that have been free for decades.
My household is probably in the minority, particularly among tech enthusiasts but as such my opinion differs greatly from those you have expressed on your show regarding Aereo. I couldn’t stay silent any longer. I felt I had to speak for us, I assume to be few, who are under 40 and still depend on broadcast TV.
Thanks. Love the show.
I discovered Yahoo Pipes is still working and I made a feed sans Spoilerin Time. In case you care to share it with anyone else:
Hey guys love the show. Thanks for the state of the cordkillers address thing. I’m a audio only listener via the RSS feed using PocketCasts (which supports Chromecast FYI) Ive had absolutely zero issues with the hosting being on archive.org for what it’s worth. Downloads seem fast when I grab spoilerin’ time early and I never notice the show because it just shows up in the morning.I liked the ‘how-to’ special and would like to see more…I think I’ll film myself setting up my Plex server/Chromecast and maybe a walkthru on my Harmony remote. Also, if I ever do watch the video, I have zero issues with the chat in the lower third. Kinda like it even.
I prefer the combined feed for the main show and spoilerin’ time. My ‘workflow’ consists of checking what you spoil in the patreon email, if I’m caught up I download it myself from archive.org. if I still have to watch Game of Thrones then I wait for it in the RSS feed. I like the update on kids shows by the way Brian 🙂 my kids are burning through bubble guppies and Clifford and who knows. By the way barbie’s dream house adventures is packed with nerd references like star wars and indiana Jones. If you use a DNS service for your Netflix by the way you can greatly vary what kids shows are available on Netflix since the nickolodean deal only ran out for the USA but Dora/Diego and lots more are still on UK and Canadian Netflix.
Lastly, I loved the bookclub like review of The Shield as I’ve just watched the first season roughly in line with Toms viewing.
Thanks guys. Love the content.
