Just had a thought, how does American TV deal with the time difference over America? Can't have same shows on at the same time or it would be pure madness.
Do they just show some shows live and repeat the rest to fit the time in other areas?
Explain please

The brodcasting companies split the States in half theres eastern/central time and mountain/pacific time. So a broadcasting company will play a show at the same time for the eastern/states and then wait an hour and play it again for the mountain/pacific times. If a show plays at 9 eastern, it will air in the central time at 8 o clock(which is the exact same time but in different time zones) then the companies wait until its 9 o clock in mountain time and 8 o clock in pacific and play it again. If something is broadcast live it is broadcast everywhere at the same moment.

Itll say [Enter shows name here] 10pm Eastern/7pm Pacific

No think about it.

They play it twice.

1st time in eastern/central time. which means it is being playes at 9 eastern and 8 central. That's the first showing.


2nd time is the pacific/mountain time. Which means 9 mountain time and 8 pacific time. That's the second showing/

It takes over the other TV systems on grounds of liberation from oppression and communism.

Good God it is halves!


The show airs at the same exact time for eastern time and central time, which means it's on at 9 eastern, and 8 central. That is happening at the same exact time. Then they play it again in mountain/pacific time.

No, sir, actually you are wrong. There are 4 time zones, but they play it at the same time in 2, and then the same time in the other 2.
