Why is Live PD delayed? It doesn’t make sense to delay a show that is suppose to be LIVE. Watching live and following along on Twitter is part of the experience. I switched from DirecTV not long ago and this is one of the many things that really disappoints me. On DirecTV, Live PD is actually LIVE. What’s the deal? Any chance Cox will get their act straight and start showing LIVE shows live?
Bruce, I understand it is not truly live and on east coast is delayed a little to bleep the bad words and hit the mute button to keep an address or social security number from going out live. And at slow parts they show edited pieces from earlier in the day or earlier in the week, but it is advertised as to be interactive. In fact viewers have tweeted about seeing suspects dropping or throwing items as the officers are not looking and the show informs the officers on scene to look for those items. They ask viewers to tweet questions for special guests, they answer questions posted about specific laws or slang terms. You cannot interact with the show when it is 3 hours later. What I am saying is exactly what you point out with live sporting events. They start when they start and you are watching at the same time I am watching, your clock says 1pm and mine says 10am. All I am asking for is when they go on air at 9pm from the A&E studios in New York, I can start watching in Arizona even if it happens to be 6pm. I did it on DirecTV. If that was an East Coast feed why can't I get that on Cox. If people don't want to watch "Live" at 6pm they can always DVR it. Either A&E or Cox is missing the boat here. Don't advertise as a "live" interactive show and then show it 3 hours later.
Complain to A&E that they are promoting a show as "Live" and interactive but sending it to you 3 hours late.
I agree...all fans should watch Live PD "live"...but that's not how cable works. To cut-the-cord, I'm researching streaming services and A&E has to be in the offering. Just about all streaming services offer A&E except YouTube TV and PlayStation Vue.
I was considering DirecTV Now but after reading the subscribers' reviews, I'll avoid it. They hate it. I'm currently considering Hulu with Live TV at $39.99. It has everything I want except Comedy Central but I can live without it.
Anyway, if you want the east-coast feed, check the applicable streaming forum to verify and then cut-the-cord.
As far as fan interaction, the questions are 90 minutes into the show. That's plenty of time for eastern and central viewers to submit questions...just not mountain and western because the show hasn't started yet.
I wish officer Alyssa Wright would come back on the show.
Now even more ridiculousness. Daylight savings time. New York “Falls Back” so now they are 2 hours ahead instead of 3. LivePD is now on at 10pm. Shouldn’t it be on @ 8pm. I suppose I could understand if it stayed at 9pm time slot but getting later is just weird.
