Nickelodeon Is Channel 33, Comcast Adult On Demand Is 333

Michael writes in with an unfortunate coincidence:

I discovered last night that my Comcast Adult on Demand channel is 333. Easy buttons for a child to accidently press, particularly when Nickelodeon is 33. That’s right, one extra push, and my five year old gets the Playboy listings instead of Spongebob.

Yeah, I blocked Adult on Demand, but I only found it in the first place because I was searching the hinterlands of Showtime en español.

It’s nice that you have such a good sense of humor about it. We imagine that eventually Comcast is bound to get some calls from parents who aren’t so pleasant to deal with.
