Boston not unaffected by national Comcast cable outage

It used to be 500 channels and nothing to watch, but this morning it's more like two channels and nothing to watch. As Matthew Gilberti reports:

My TVs are stuck on Sportscenter and The View. Don't know which is worse!

Comcast Business is unaffected. I was able to change the channel to WBZ and WHDH without an issue.

Maybe Boston proper wasn't affected, but certainly the suburbs were. All we had were channels 2-24 and >200, didn't check OnDemand channel 1. Everything else in between was out for a couple of hours.

The Weather Channel (not in the above range) displayed a nice, bright, green screen with their normal ticker running at the bottom, displaying green arrows signifying traffic to and from the Central Artery was just fine...

Though perhaps not to the same degree. I tried changing to a couple of channels and my X1 box just gave an error code. Most channels seemed fine though.
