7 local channels not on comcast

Comcast we have 7 local broadcast channels that are not on your system in Salisbury, MD that need to be added.

 

WGDV - Laff TV, Azteca,Bounce,H&I,Grit, & Escape

 

WBOC-Telemendo.    

 

When will these channels be added to our local comcast tv programming?

We expect to add WGDV Azteca and WBOC Telemundo in the Salisbury television market (DMA) on November 11th.


We are swapping out the current DC-based affiliate stations for the local stations. We will be putting the channels on the same channel locations as the DC stations so there is no customer disruption.

Those channels are not the primary broadcast station; those services are on the dot 2 or dot 3 multicast of the local broadcaster (secondary and tertiary sub channels)  and are not required to be offered on cable or other multichannel video providers.

We don't have plans to add those channels in this area at this time. 

 

I have passed along your interest in this programming to the right teams for future consideration.
