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

Regular Visitor

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

I don't understand why you will not add One America News??? I know many many people who have opted not to have Comcast because you do not carry it. Most likely, we will be dropping you once our contract ends so we can get One America News with a different provider.

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.

You can move it, but nothing changes. The truth hurts doesn't it, Ted. I can't wait until my contract is up so I can dump Comcast and all of their services.

You should really read the Forum Guidelines. 

 

This forum is set up as a place where customers can get assistance and guidance.

If you want to continue to make the same repeated remarks about the process, this forum or this company, there are many other places that this sort of thing can be done outside of this forum.

Thanks again.

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

I notice that Roku has the network for $4.99 (appears to be a one time charge).

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

Your reply is very direct, clear, and honest. However, I suggest you and other employees of Comcast consider getting ahead of the curve. Add OANN.

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

I'd love to see One America News ... Comcast is constantly adding channels and the vast majority are useless with very little interest. Here you have a news station that is straightforward, no-nonsense, and has a ready market - but Comcast refuses to add the station. Why?

One America News Network

Does Comcast Xfinity has plans to include One America News Network into it's cable news lineup. If not what can I do to make it happen?

Re: Add One America News to Lineup

Comcast needs to add OANN to the lineup soon. It is a great news channel. Get it done!
