But why are they moving cartoon network from basic and expanded service? Prices are always going up and customers keep losing channels.

Most CN content is moving to HBO Max. Linear cable TV channels are slowly dying out.

First TCM moving to S & E a couple years ago, and now this.  You have to wonder how long it'll be until the other Turner owned channels TBS and TNT are also bumped up a tier.

Last straw for me - I pay a fortune to Comcast for digital tv and internet, both have subpar service btw, and now they want to blackmail us into more expensive packages by moving channels away from loyal customers to squeeze more money out of our pockets. A pox on Comcast

Xfinity continues to abuse its base.  I’m ready to ditch this terrible company.   A double pox on these losers.

Imagine how Comcast must feel when negotiating and end up having to pay more for a network knowing customers are going to complain over a price raise.  FWiW, you're going to experience the same thing with streaming services.

@Again Glad you are such a passionate expert regarding the loss of Cartoon Network by hard working families who will now have a larger monthly bill to pay for a more expensive package in order for their kids to keep on enjoying  this channel during a pandemic. And kudos for also being so deeply in touch with the hurt feelings of comcast employees as they pass on these increases to their loyal customers. I really don’t know how they can sleep at night with all this pain and suffering they are experiencing.

Don't make excuses for them they are not hurting.  They are just giving me another great reason outside of the shi**y service to cancel my pay tv with them.

AT&T is completing the installation of their fiber in the neighborhood as we speak.  For 20 years Xfinity has be charging the same price while reducing services, it's finally time.

You are aware that Cartoon Network is owned by AT&T? They are the ones demanding ever higher fees for Comcast and others to carry their networks. As far as AT&T is concerned, they don't mind the loss as they expect people to subscribe to HBO Max instead, or use ATT TV, which is just as expensive, if not more, than Comcast.

Xfinity can't afford to take a lose they only made of $103.56 BILLION last year guys cut them some slack.

We have to keep on this and keep letting them know that we want Cartoon Network back! My mom has DirecTV and they once took away a local news station. My mom kept emailing them and eventually they went back, negotiated a better price and worked it out, and she got her channel back! Keep on it and tell Comcast to go back in, negotiate, and make a better deal!

High paid execs thinking people will pay more for one channel rather than just cut and get more streaming services are morons. Hope they enjoy the bonuses they give to themselves, cuz their fading away. I only watch xfinity for sports, and am looking to get a good way to watch them now without comcast.

Expect the cost for streaming services to go up as more people ditch cable.

I've had Cartoon Network since I started my service and now it's telling me I need a subscription.  What happened?  I don't recall receiving any notice about any changes.

@user_5d5bb9

The very first post in this thread explains what happened.  Do you read your billing statements beyond how much you owe?  If you're on autopay you should still read your billing statements.
