To the Editor:
For several years I have subscribed to TV Guide Magazine for television programming, but in many cases the program schedule did not agree with what was actually on television at a given time. In some cases, the cable provider had cable network channels that were not listed in TV Guide Magazine.
But the TV Guide Magazine I received for week of Jan. 1 through Jan. 7 had all the programming which the local cable provider has for its extended basic service with "STARZ" and "ENCORE" and the program times agreed. Then I received the issue for Jan. 8 through Jan. 14, and it was back to times not agreeing, and cable channels networks not listed. With some additional investigation, I have determined that Craig receives the TV Guide Magazine edition for southern Colorado, which has scheduling problems. The issue I received for Jan. 1 through Jan. 7 was the edition for Denver.
I have contacted TV Guide and requested that my subscription be changed to the Denver edition. Of course, I am the only person with this zip code requesting the Denver edition and they cannot assure me that I will receive each issue on time. If at least eight subscribers in a specific zip code request the change, then TV Guide will assure that you will receive the magazine on time.
