Re: what happened to KFFV channel 351

I was informed by Comcast that their account was suspended. Why they were suspended and when they may be back is not available. I have emailed KBS World in Los Angeles for their comments also.

According to the Wikipedia article on KFFV, Weigel Broadcasting acquired KFFV and on 1/17/18 all networks not owned by Weigel,

a category which includes KBS, were "purged and replaced."

Will we be refunded for loss of service?

Comcast has no control over what networks local TV stations carry. They just pass on the signals per agreements made with the station.

Wish the CH351 message could be updated with an english translation.

Really hope the KBS programing can come back on-air on the TV. 

Otherwise will need to watch the KBS website.  [ prefer the TV ...]  Thanks.

We should be compensated for this.

Re: what happened to KFFV channel 351

The message roughly translates to "You can no longer use this channel."

This is very upsetting, as we watch KBS daily.

Re: what happened to KFFV channel 351

I used to watch KBS World daily, so I really hope they try to get it back in the lineup.

Thanks for the link. I submitted a suggestion for other korean-english broadcast possibilities, if available ... ie: tvN, MBC, SBS, etc ...

Just chatted with CS person and he confirms that the channel is NOT suspended.  He's sending a technician out to fix my grey connection and the channel issue.  Will keep everyone posted.

Wrong answer. Everybody lost KBS channel 351. NO NOTICE AND N O EXPLANATION GIVEN BY COMCAST/XFINITY. What do you expect from a company that has the woprst customer service rating in America. (yes, even worse than Walmart)

I have escalated your issue to the Comcast Team available to these forums. Check back often for a reply in this thread or via Private Message from a Comcast Official Employee.

Smiley Happy Looking back to a message posted on 1/19/2018 ... { According to the Wikipedia article on KFFV, Weigel Broadcasting acquired KFFV and on 1/17/18 all networks not owned by Weigel, a category which includes KBS, were "purged and replaced." }

In other words Comcast had nothing to do with KBS, CH-351 going off the air ...

Re: Channel 351, Seattle

Since there was an ownership and network change, that probably means that Comast and the new owner need to forge a new agreement as to what is carried and what, if any, $$$ they will charge Comcast for the rights to carry their channels.

Re: what happened to KFFV channel 351

Hello all,

 

The information provided by @3904 is correct. Channels KFFV and KVOS are now under a different company ownership. These channels have been replaced with Movies!, MeTV, H&I channels. This is something we have no control over.

Comcast worker, You might have no control over this matter. But someone at comcast/xfinity should be able to fix this void.

There are more websites that I have found by accident, by being ceative in my searches.

Just delete them and your downloads should be OK.

Just live stream KBS World from YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NCLQN16Lyb4

 

Not the best solution, but it's something.
