cmt

You took away CMT what does it cost to get  it back?

I think that is pretty crummy since Nashville is on there now.

You will need to call into Comcast at 1-800-266-2278 or 1-800-934-6489 and speak with a CSR about which package subscription will get you CMT and the additional cost to you for that subscription.

Re: cmt

CMT is still carried in areas that previously had it, but in many areas, it has moved to the Sports & Entertainment package.

CMT

So you move the CMT channel which Nashville was moved to and knowing how many people fought to keep that show on the air, you make it so they have to pay for another package. I am paying enough to you guys $179.00/mo and this is what you do. Can't wait for my contract to end so I can look at other options. Shame on you Comcast and the greed that is over taking this company.

CMT was moved to Sports and Entertainment in January 2016.  CMT did not acquire Nashville until May 2016 after it was canceled by ABC in March 2016.

If you want to watch Nashville but don't have CMT, it is broadcast on Nickelodeon, your Chs SD 40, SD 124 and HD 740 a couple of hours after CMT airs it.

Re: lost channels

I agree with all!  My wife and enjoy watching the CMT Network and Comcast just decides to delete it from our programing package. We have a contract with Comcast which has been broken.  If more folks complain maybe they will listen.

Re: move channel to a different package

Then tell them to move CMT back! It's still listed in our channel lineup. Dumbest move ever Comcast! Comcast is nothing but a scammer!

Re: move channel to a different package

I am so glad to see all of the complaints here.

 

Add my voice to the others complaining about Comcast wanting to charge us $9.99 to get CMT back!  

 

Ridiculous!

 

Comcast, you need to change your decision-making!  It's alienating your customers, especially when they have other options.

 

Don't you realize that such decisions end up costing you revenue?  Because you will lose more customers than you will gain in revenue by trying to charge $9.99 to watch a single network!

 

In what world it that smart decision-making?

 

Fellow customers, if you want to watch Nashville, find another option such as a neighbor who has FiOS, Hulu, or pay $1.99 to Amazon or iTunes.

Re: move channel to a different package

You can watch CMT on Nick at 11:00pm, the same night CMT airs it just an hour later.  I decided to buy the sports package last week just so I could watch Nashville on CMT until I found out Nick airs it.  I dropped the sports package like a bad habit!!  I only had it for a week and that was a week too long!

Lawsuit? Bring up these shifty tactics to the FCC and other government regulatory agencies? The problem is enough people won't complain about Comcast breaking the contract by taking away/moving channels. So without a good majority of their customers voicing their displeasure nothing will happen. It's the same as Playstation Network now being pay to play on the Playstation 4. Nobody complains about it. They just pay it because 'it is the way it is'. I'm sure some of them are hoping beyond hope that someone ELSE will be the one to speak up and get things changed for them.

Re: CMT

Not a Nashville fan, but I got hooked on Sun Studios, which I have not seen on any other channel.  The fact that I have Digital Preferred and still can't watch CMT is a little messed up!

Re: Spike / CMT / POP Mega Thread change 1/7/16 1/14/16

Yes, Sports AND Entertainment.  So if CMT is considered "entertainment", why isn't MTV or VH1 bundled in that package???  I would like an answer to that!
