SOMEONE ASKED 👇
8/7c in pacific time zone?
HERE THE ANSWERS 👇
8:00…7:00 Central time…that’s what the “C” means.
You would watch it at 8 p.m.
8/7 c is usually interpreted as 8 eastern/7 central.
It depends on the channel, really, but probably the first case below.
1) The networks and some cable channels (including subscription movie channels) generally have two feeds. One for East coast and one for West coast. For instance, what someone in NYC would see on HBO at 3 p.m. eastern time zone would be seen by someone in L.A. when it’s 6 p.m. in N.Y.C., but still 3 p.m. in Pacific time zone.
2) Some channels save the expense of the dual feeds and show a primetime block of programming at 8 p.m. eastern and then repeat it at 11 eastern/8 pacific.
3) Another way of doing things would be to totally disregard whether or not a program appears at a given time on both coasts and air it simultaneously to all (i.e. 8 eastern/5 pacific). This is done all the time for live programs. If you’ve ever seen the end of a NFL game, you’ve probably heard the announcer say “Stayed tune for _____ next, except on the West coast.”
That was just confusing? Try this:
Whatever channel that will air this mystery program probably has a TV schedule at their website that either lets you select your time zone or asks for your zip code in order to select the time zone for you. If you do that and search for the air date you’ve heard, you should find the exact time for your desired show.Source(s): The pseudo-knowledge within
Pacific time zone is 2 hours behind central so it would be 5:00.
