On May 21st, 2015, at approx. 12:37:40AM, I was watching KIRO on Shaw Basic Digital Cable, channel 15. This was the only opportunity that I had to see the final broadcast of “The Late Show with David Letterman.” This show was not scheduled to end around until 12:55AM. At approximately 12:37:40AM, Shaw suddenly switched KIRO over to a simulcast of CTVtwo(channel 12), which was airing a different television show. As a huge David Letterman fan, I was livid to be denied the final minutes of his final show. Since the final moments of series finales are some of the most poignant, I am tremendously upset by Shaw’s actions.
Also, no one from Shaw informed me that VOD would offer the program. I only found out through a friend who informed me, but only to find out on the last day when the selection was removed from VOD.
