I would like to add the RFD channel

RFD-TV

I would like to see RFD-TV added in the Morgantown, WV area - specifically zip 26588.  Are there any plans to do so?  I know that Comcast carries this network in some areas.  A new show from American Mountain Theater is being added to the line-up.  This originates in WV and I'd like to be able to see it.

Has Comcast given any reason for not getting Boomerang in NJ?

And thanks for the link. Good information.

Re: RFD-TV

Nope they just say its not part of our system.  I have all the channels and I find it strange that comcast does not carry that channel.  It can't cost them that much to carry it its just old cartoons.

Silver Problem Solver

Re: RFD-TV

You get Cartoon Network don't you? If I am correct Boomerang is the same company.

Agreed on the cost of carriage issue but in MN they put it on Preferred tier. The local phone company offers it on the mid-level tier which is very similar in channel offerings as Digital Starter.

Strange. And a bummer.

RFD-TV in Springfield, IL

I have asked our local office in Springfield, IL about the possibility of getting RFD-TV here for over a year and they tell me that Comcast corporate has determined that we are not a "rural" community so they don't feel the programming would be relevant. RFD-TV has many shows that would be enjoyed by your subscribers. I would very much like to see this channel added to our system locally. It is carried in many other Comcast markets.

Re: RFD-TV in Springfield, IL

Try the direct route. RFDTV itself.

You can make requests via this site to have it added to your carrier. May not work but if they get enough requests from your area who knows.

want RFD channel

I have asked for the RFD channel to be added to my lineup several times. With all the channels that you provide that I don't watch (at least 30), why can't you provide one that I do want to watch?

Comcast, I can send pictures of corn and cows if I need to prove my ruralness.  I'd give up 50 channels I don't watch just so I could watch The Marty Stuart Show.

RFD TV

I see that Comcast has opted to drop the #1 Rural TV channel in the country, RFD-TV. When they do this, for another food channel, adios Comcast and welcome back DISH. Whats the matter with you goof balls. No more Millie B or the other well watched channels. Ive been thinking of going back to DIsh and this has made my mind up.

I just heard that Comcast in Colorado Springs is going to get rid of RFD-TV for a "food channel".   DO NOT REMOVE RFD-TV.   We already have enough food channels!!  I will cancel COMCAST if they do not keep RFD-TV.

 It may also be helpful if you contacted your local Comcast office directly. These forums are mainly a customer to customer help forum. Chances are not good for this to be seen by a Comcast employee.

Or you could try this

Send an e-mail to this address

We_can_help@cable.comcast.com

Include:

full name

service address

phone number

account number

link to this thread

full details of the problems

Let them know in the email your wish to keep RFD channel.

I also recommend contacting the RFD network themselves via their website to let them know you want to keep them on Comcast.

Bring Back RFD TV

I have been a subscriber for over 22 years in Albuquerque, NM. Comcast dropped RFD TV in August and I am really upset about it. It is programming geared toward rural America and is very family friendly. Please help me convince Comcast to bring back RFD TV!

Re: RFD TV

I have to agree that the channel lineup is not that great for me either. There are goo-gobs of channels that I never look at because they have no entertainment value whatsoever.

 

I would like more old TV shows like Ed Sullivan and Carol Burnett. Or some of the old variety shows like Dean Martin's.

 

Plus old country TV shows out of Nashville such as the Porter Waggoner and The Wilburn Brothers shows. Buck Owens had a good TV show out of Bakersfield in the 1960s.

RFD TV

Why is Comcast removing RFD from Family Network??? There are soooo many sports channels available and this was the only one dedicated to the horse/farm community. You don't have to live in rural areas to enjoy the shows, especially if you are a horseman. Please........ put RFD back on. You are losing a big part of the prospective customers for the products being advertised.

Re: Add channel RFD

Sunday Sep 7, 2014. I turned on my TV to watch Ralph Emory at 5PM and no RFDTV. I am devastated. I just figured out that is why I did not see Crook and chase last week. Please - when are we going to get RFDTV in the Houston area - Cypress, TExas to be exact. That is one of about five or six channels I watch. I look forward to your reply, Comcast.

RFD Programming

Just inquiring about RFD! Had some RFD programs on FamilyNet but that has disappeared. Is there plans to add RFD to a new lineup? I was very aggravated when those programs were removed.

Re: Add channel RFD

Screw Comcast. It doesnt matter that we dont have RFD, as the Comcast service has gone from bad to worst ever. They have more problems than dropping our beloved RFD. Time for us to move on. DISH & Direct TV seem to have nice deals. So what if they screw you, Comcast has been doing it for years. I have heard that the concept of "cafeteria" type cable is the next big thing, where youpick only the channels you want, and pay accordingly. Of course Comcast wont offer it. Im also tired of theior monopoly. I want a choice of cable companies like the old days before comcast bought everyone off.

RFD TV

Since the merger in the cable companies.  Agricultural type stations are phased out like RFD-TV. What is up with that? Big enough deal for those of us with Ag interests I may be going Satellite? Been a 15 year + customer but doesnt seem to matter now.

Suggestion

Any chance of the RFD Network being added to the Comcast channel line up?

New Poster

RFD-TV

Can you add RFD or at least the musical portion of the network to the Houston market?  I want to see Larry's Country Diner, Marty Stuart Show, and others in this category.  Comcast is the ONLY carrier in the area that is NOT offering RFD.  I was told last year by a customer service rep that you would have it by early 2015, but so far that has not happened.  This is important to me, enough so that I am considering swithing to ATT-Uverse if Comcast does not add it!

I would add the RFD-TV channel, but I know that Comcast already removed that from their lineup out in the western states even though it was the #1 channel in that market. Why? Because RFD-TV doesn't fit Comcast's "urban" image. Neither do the customers in that market.....but why should matching channels to market demographics matter?

Re: Add channel RFD

I remember watching RFD-TV when we had Dish. I loved the interviews with the gentlemen that restored antique tractors. I would say that Comcast would most likely NOT be adding this channel to our line up in the Greenwood/Indianapolis area.
A number of us here on the forum have also been wanting Fox Sports 2 to be added to the line up. So far, no good.
I expect Comcast TED to answer us again with his pre- approved politically correct answer. Its all about who is watching ( number of eyeballs ) that the advertiser can get.
I would say that us as consumers should write whoever controls Comcast Xfinity and ask who does the planning on what we can see. What does it take to change this system, because obviously this could be better.
Why can't we have ala carte channel selection? In this digital age, we ( not Comcast Xfinity) should be able to watch what we want, whenever we want. I am sure there has got to be a better system. Agreed?

Re: RFD TV

Thank you, Comcast Zach. I have missed RFD-TV is the only channel on Dish TV that wished Comcast Xfinity would carry besides Fox Sports 2. RFD should cost a lot less.

Hi bchand51 -- We do not carry this channel. I will place a channel request for you. These requests are tracked to help us evaluate which channels we should carry in our lineups.

I too, me my ownself, would also like to have RFD here in Chicago burb. But I doubt it will ever happen.

 

Plus I would like to have Military History back. I had it for years and then somebody decided to put it into some other package so that it would cost more money to get it back.
