Suddenly stopped recognizing my HBO subscription

New Poster

Suddenly stopped recognizing my HBO subscription

I've been a customer since 2003 with the same package and have not changed since then.  HBO is included in the package price.   For year, I've been watching HBO GO, using the Xfinity app, and watching Xfinity.TV on my computer.  About 4 days ago, it started saying I don't have HBO in my package - but I didn't change anything, my TV still has HBO and when I dial into customer support, they tell me I have HBO.   But nobody has been able to fix it after 5 calls.  Half the time, I get hung up on on transferred to a number that is disconnected.


I believe that since I have an old package, some systems changes happened a few days ago that caused the Single Sign On system to not recognize my HBO subscription - I can still log on, it knows who I am, it allows me to watch Showtime shows, etc.  Just can't find HBO.


Every time I call, I sit on the phone with someone who wants me to reboot my cable box or tells me I need to reset my internet password.   Is there anyone @ Comcast who can actually help with this?
