Every subchannel (like Me-TV and ChargeTV) is controlled by local broadcast networks. This means that their content changes based on local contracts. It's likely that your local station carrying Me-TV has replaced it with Charge TV. I would also guess that with this change, your local station is owned by the Sinclair Broadcast Group.
MeTV may no longer be available in your area, may be on a different subchannel (and different number channel on Comcast), or a subchannel on a different local station. This will vary from market to market.
That message is completely incorrect. Whether the channel is part of your subscription but not working correctly, or the channel is NOT part of your subscription, if you want to watch it you need to contact one of their reps at the phone number on your bill or 1-800-Comcast, or chat with them using one of the options at https://www.comcastsupport.com/chatentry/. You can't do anything about it in "My Account".
Entering 94401 in http://www.smithsonianchannel.com/ways-to-watch produces this:
Unfortunately, Comcast XFINITY does not offer Smithsonian Channel in your area. Tell your provider you want Smithsonian Channel as part of your channel lineup!
followed by a "Click here to request it now" link.
Anytime there is a "Free Preview" of any channel we offer, we will always announce it on this board (Channels & Programming). If you keep an eye on the posts at the very top of this board you will notice it there.
P.S. We are running a MLS Direct Kick Free Preview now.
We just upgraded our Xfinity HD-DVR receiver box that came with a voice command remote control.
Is there any way to zoom (enlarge) the text of the Channel Guide? (we sit far back from our TV and cannot read the Guide)
A few weeks ago I stumbled across an Xfinity web page showing all the channels available in my area - not just by package, but the complete list of available channels for all packages. Unfortunately I lost the URL and now I can't find the web page again. Does anybody know where this might be?
The following link will provide you with the channels that you subscribe to: https://www.xfinity.com/support/local-channel-line
I found that I don't have certain channels with my x1 box it says subcribe or with subscription. When I try to look at syfy, or OWN channel aren't they basic stations? It tells me to add to line up channel in order to watch. How do I do that?
If you are getting a "Free with subscription" notice it means that the channel you are trying to access is not in your current package. In order to receive that channel you would need to upgrade to the tier that includes that channel; this means that you would also incur increased charges for that tier. Contact Comcast at the number on your bill or 1-800-COMCAST to upgrade your package to include the tier and channel you are wanting to add.
What happened to "GRIT" channel in Harrisburg, PA?
Apologies. We no longer have the necessary rights and agreements in place to offer this channel in this area.
