Depending on where you are in the world 2:30 Eastern Time relates to the time difference that falls along the east coast of the United States. It is normally five hours behind during standard time and four hours during daylight saving time.
For example 2:30pm EST is 7:30pm in the UK, hence the UK is five hours ahead or vice versa so the US is five hours behind the UK.
Since the beginning of 2007, the local time changes at 02:00 EST and goes forward 03:00 EDT on the second Sunday in March. It returns back to normal at 02:00 EDT to 01:00 EST on the first Sunday in November, which applies to both the U.S. As well as Canada.
In the United States EST time zones applies to 17 states and the District of Columbia. The following as a rule (and Washington, D.C.) observe only Eastern Time: Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Vermont, Virginia and West Virginia.
National media companies and large channels such as ABC, and HBO will often report or post programs for adverts with EST to notify viewers what time it is on in their region.
For the most part, TV schedules are also almost always posted in Eastern Time. Sporting events from baseball to basketball are also advertised in Eastern Time, even if both teams are from the same time zone but are outside of Eastern Time.
Most cable and national networks advertise airing times in Eastern time yet this is different with national broadcast networks including CBS, The CW, Fox Network and NBC as on the whole they have two primary feeds - an eastern feed for Eastern and Central time zones, as well as a western feed for the Pacific time zone.
