Has this channel been permanently removed from the lineup?

I don't know, but I sure miss it already. Just tried to find it this evening. I emailed KCTS about it. I suppose petitioning Comcast to bring it back is next.

If it is this channel:

Then it may have been paying Comcast to lease the channel,  or supported or rebroadcast by a local school/college or government channel.

It is gone from Xfinity's channel lineup, which is something of a shock when you consider that the channel doesn't charge cable networks to air it.   Petitioning KCTS definitely won't help because they don't own it.  The good news that there is is that you can now view their content online via the link that andyross provided.

When I checked the web sites list of channels here in the Chicago area, they were all local college/university channels only available in a few towns each. It's hard to tell what, if any, fee they may charge the schools.

As noted earlier, it's typically carried by local colleges or universities. If they drop it, then there is nothing Comcast can do as they just air what is given them.
