Re: One America News Network - the new CNN - will we get it?

People on this thread have been requesting OAN since 2013. That constitutes "years".

Re: We want OANN on Comcast!!!!!!

"Submitting a ticket" is NOT a solution. A solution would be ading OANN to the cable lineup!!

OANN

Why don't you carry OANN??

Valued Contributor

Re: OANN

The subject line here is misleading. OAN is NOT the new CNN. OAN is a minor network that doesn't even subscribe to the Neilsen ratings service. Just because a few dozen people on this message board want it added doesn't mean that a large enough percentage of subscribers want it to make it worthwhile for Comcast and OAN to come to a carriage agreement.

Understood and agreed on the thread title -  I modified the subject line at the top of this original thread (that was initiated by the Original Poster).

Re: OANN

So what is the status of our "ticket"?

Is comcast going to add OANN real news, or continue pushing their corporate ignore the man behind the curtain line?

Re: OANN

I disagree with your assessment on the new CNN. You have to go back a few decades. CNN at it birth did not have any  ratings.  OANN is the new CNN because it offers news the way CNN did the year the cable systems picked it up.

Re: One America News Network - OAN - will we get it?

Add it, I have been considering leaving and until I watched it the other day and realized you didn't carry it....well now I have a reason to change providers. So add before my desire for balanced coverage beats out my laziness, please.

We would like to see the OAN channel on our xfinity channel line-up.

Is there anyone else that would like to see the One America News channel (OAN) on the xfinity network in southwest Florida?

Disappointed that NEWSMAX and ONE AMERICA NEWS are not currently offered on Comcast -- coming from Verizon, I assumed they would be with Comcast as well.   We no longer watch Network News nor CNN, MSNBC, etc.  Please consider these news channels.

REMINDER

This thread is about requesting OANN programming.  The mods have left the thread open as it is a frequent topic on this board. At this time Comcast has not announced any plans to carry OANN. You may want to consider submitting a Customer Feedback Form to request OANN.

One America News Network

As a loyal subscriber I was without Xfinity for a month while we were moving and had Direct TV in the apartment that we temporarily lived in while transitioning to our new home. While channel surfing my new server I came across the OAN channel 347 on Direct TV and became a huge fan after several days of watching OAN. Now that I have moved into my new home and have Xfinity once again, I notice that OAN is not included in Xfinity. If at all possible, please add One America News (OAN) to your lineup as I am totally disgusted with the "Fake News" that is carried throughout Xfinity. I'm certain that Xfinity can pull away Direct TV and other subscribers to your network.

I had this channel with Verizon and after watching it for 15 minutes, I was ready to crawl out of my skin.     The host seem to wine a lot.  Very annoying.

Re: One America News

I have posted before and nothing, as soon as my 1 year contract ends I am moving back to UVerse, eventualy thye will get internet speed up. They carry OAN and AWE. I dont care for most of the lineup just a few channels so not having these two does affect my family as they watch these two. 

 

Ticket open, under consideration etc... all excuses for no action or consideratoin whatsoever. 6 months to go and I am out.

You can watch Newsmax TV on Pluto TV, a free online service/app. I watch it on a Roku, but you can watch it using a browser, a desktop app, smartphone and other device apps. It has a bunch of other channels too, some that are worth watching.

no way to get to particular message numbers. More news channels the better if they are inexpensive enough. maybe a news tier?

AONN

Has anyone from Comcast answered the question about getting OANN channel?  I see questions, but no answers.

Re: AONN

Hi Annie2151 -- Your post has been merged with an existing thread regarding AONN. Per our responses, we do not have any plans to add this channel at this time. Our programming teams constantly evaluate programming choices and make decisions based on customer interests, costs, channel bandwidth management and contractual obligations. They will continue to negotiate with AONN on potentially adding this channel.

Do I need to remind you that OANN says Comcast has no interest in adding OANN to our lineup and are not negotiating.

Just to add some additional background:

 

The Comcast programming teams and local management teams constantly evaluate programming choices and make decisions based on customer interests, costs, channel bandwidth management and contractual obligations. The Comcast employees who participate in these forums certainly pass along your collective feedback, interests and concerns to those teams. All channels, regardless of affiliation, are required to go through the same application and approval process in order to be carried by Comcast.

 

As with any network contract, we want to come to an agreement that offers the best terms for our customers and our company that keeps both our costs and our customer's monthly costs to a minimum.

 

As with any business, situations may change based on customer demand, channel bandwidth opportunities, business opportunities, costs and contractual obligations.

 

We don't have any announcements to make regarding the addition of this channel at this time. We also don't have an expected date for an announcement for adding this channel in Comcast areas.

 

Any potential channel addition(s) would be communicated ahead of time according to any FCC and local franchise requirements.

 

I realize that is not the answer that most of you were looking for but that is the current situation and an accurate answer.

 

The reality is that there could be a deal announced next week, next month, next year or not at all. Depends on the many factors I outlined above.

Thanks for your question, your interest and your passion. It has been noted and shared.

 

Certainly not the same - but FYI - customers with X1 can easily get to some of OAN's top stories anytime on TV via the YouTube App. Press the XFINITY button on the remote control, select the Apps button then select YouTube.  You can search for OAN using the on-screen keyboard.

Thanks for the interest and the passion. It has been noted and shared.

As mentioned earlier, "no strong interest" (that was the quote you provided earlier from a response you received from OAN  - is not the same as "no interest") may not be there most likely based on contract terms and conditions, costs, etc.

Generally speaking, (and not specific to OANN) these arrangements for carriage (for any network, on any platform, on any provider) almost always boil down to contract terms and conditions, which are confidential between the parties.
