channels need to pay the movie company when they show a movie, the price goes down over time, as any big movie drops into the price bracket of a
channel, they show it as soon as possible, there are uasually quite a few channels that have the same price bracket and with big movies such as the
ones you mentioned, a group of channels with simular budgets are likely to put them on within a couple of weeks of each other.
if you watched tv more you might have noticed this happening before, as it is i'ld imagine you noticed these programmes because you are more
sencitive to movies with an apocoliptic theme because you have an interest in these themes.
if you noticed the same thing around 9/11 its probably the same thing happen then with bigger channels or perhaps the tv channels felt ''america
faces down advercity and wins'' movies would have been popular viewing at the time.
