Some cable TV customers of Comcast Cablevision of Mobile on Wednesday, March 20th, and Thursday, March 21st, probably would have noticed no programming (or darkness) on the cable TV channel Comcast Cablevision of Mobile used for providing standard-definition programming from WFGX-TV if they had set their cable TV receivers for the channel. Even though the station was still broadcasting regular programming over the air on those days, the aforementioned customers were not receiving the station's programming through the cable TV system operated by Comcast Cablevision of Mobile because of an error in the system's ability to decrypt (or unscramble) the signal from the station. The system's ability to decrypt the signal was restored sometime between 12:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. on March 21st. By then, the customers affected by the error were receiving the station's programming through the system again.
