New bill does not reflect loss of Bally's sports network.

My latest bill arrived today and does not reflect the loss of the Bally Sports Network.  I understand that I will be credited for weeks that I already paid for but why isn't my next bill reduced?  I don't want to pay for a service I'm not receiving to only be 'credited' at a later day.

@cb1969 Thanks for reaching out about the loss of Diamond Sports Group (DSG) programming, which includes Bally Sports regional sports networks. This programming is currently unavailable as our agreement with DSG has expired. Comcast pays programmers to bring our customers the entertainment, information, and sports they want. We work to negotiate fair terms in order to ensure the greatest value for customers given all the ways content can be accessed today. We’ve been flexible with DSG, who is in bankruptcy proceedings, but have been unable to reach an agreement that’s fair for our customers. We know unexpected changes to your TV lineup can be frustrating, and we apologize for any inconvenience. For more information, visit 
www.xfinity.com/howitworks

Bally was included in some of our channel packages but wasn't like something we could add à la carte so there wouldn't be an adjustment to your billing for it. 

Comcast and FuboTV reached an agreement on a special offer for our customers to help them maintain access to Bally Sports content. High level details are:
7 day free trial followed by 30% discount for 2 months on the Pro and Elite tiers
Sign-up is through Fubo directly at fubotv.com/offer (site appears to be live as of this email being drafted) and the sign-up window will be open for up to 60 days.
Content needs to be viewed through a supported device (Fubo is not integrated into the X1 platform app ecosystem)
The Fubo offer will be included in the Editorial Tip Card & MLB Team Pages and on our programming expiration website www.xfinity.com/facts

So, a reduction in service but not a reduction in price for the package that included Bally Sports content.  Oh, that makes perfect sense.  In addition, signing up for Fubo to receive the content that Xfinity will not discount now adds on to the bill for anyone wanting the content...and the so called discount offer doesn't add much to much in the long run.   Already very disappointed with Xfinity's rates, and to not adjust the rate for the loss of programming just shows how greedy Xfinity is.

@XfinityPeterH​ I received email from Xfinity stating this:

"The loss of this channel will result in savings that we'll pass along to you, and you'll see a monthly credit on your bill in the coming weeks. You don't need to do anything to receive your credit; we'll automatically apply it to your upcoming monthly bill statement."

If this is the case, why is Xfinity saying I'm to receive a credit but then you're saying the package cannot be discounted.

Can you explain what the $12.25 regional sports fee actually covers?

@cb1969 that is great to hear. This has been a recent change and with so much changing so fast sometime even us reps don't get all the information, so you are all set. Chances are it will show up on your new bill once it prints. Thanks for that information.

I have the same questions about Bally credits as listed above.  I don't see an answer to the question of "where is the credit on the bill".  All I see from comcast is a lot of talk but no action.  I guess the info put out on all the media about refunding customers is only for eyewash to the masses.  Congrats Comcast you have missed the ball again.  I have several services from Xfinity.  As soon as I can figure out all the impacts, I think I will probably be gone.  It's pretty evident that Comcast sure doesn't care about the customers.

Concern moved here to the Billing help section for greater exposure to Comcast corporate employees (The Digital Care Team) for assistance.
