@XfinityMorgan I am having the same issue! I live in Enola, PA. It pisses me off because I love to come home to Maury and the People's Court and all I am getting for at least 3 weeks is the stupid jewelry shopping network.

I am in the Harrisburg PA area and we too have lost the CW channel to this JTV channel, [EDIT]!
Can you confirm what channel number you're attempting to watch the CW on? I'm showing channel 13 as the SD feed and 805 as the HD feed for that area.
In york county, Dover, pa our channels are 20 and 805 for HD (both are showing Jtv)
Thank you for reaching out to us regarding the missing channel @user_96e4b8. I am also showing that the channels 20 and 805 are both registered as The CW Channel. We can take a closer look and assist with this concern. Can you please send a Direct Message with your full name and address?

This is the response I received:
The issue you are experiencing is a direct technical issue with Sinclair broadcasting stations across the nation through their feeds. As it is not related to our service for resolution, any inquiries or questions would have to be directed towards them. They tell us they are working on a fix, but I don't have an ETA.

The problem in South-Central PA is at the station, WHP-DT3, owned by the Sinclair Broadcast Group. The over-the-air signal as well as the feeds Comcast carries are supposed to be the CW, but most of the time Jewelry TV is being broadcast instead.
Sinclair Broadcast Group, the nation’s second largest TV station owner, is experiencing technical issues with some of their local TV stations, as well as with their lines of communication (telephone, email, etc.). It's possible that this is related to the issue going on with Sinclair. If regular troubleshooting steps have been completed and we've also been able to confirm that the channel number you're experiencing this on is owned by Sinclair, then it's likely that this issue is a result of Sinclair’s technical difficulties. If this is the case for you, please know that we’re awaiting information from the programmer as to when the issue will be resolved. We will provide updates here accordingly.
@XfinityMorgan has there been any updates on this matter?
Hi, @user_AT17 [Edited username to remove PII]! Thank you for reaching out on our Forums page for an update on the Sinclair Broadcast Group. We appreciate you greatly for patiently waiting for a response. While researching this further, I have discovered that as of yesterday, they're working diligently to fix the damage that was caused but it’s going to take some time because it was a big hacking attack. We will continue to monitor this issue on our end and follow up with an update. I also recommend in contacting [Sinclair](https://comca.st/3CnzAPB) to check on if they can provide any additional information as well.
Hello, @user_AT17 [Edited username to remove PII]! I just wanted to check in to see how everything is working and if you were able to contact Sinclair Broadcast Group to see if they can provide any additional information.
How come channel which is supposed to be the CW channel now is the jewelry channel? The guide still shows listing for the channei, the station plays JTV. Is this channel being bootoegged? Where is the CW programs? CW is on channel 805, but it is the JTV. Zip code is 17057.
Says they had a ransomware attack:

I am having the same issue. It's been over a week. I've contacted xfinity, CW and WHP. All pass the buck. When will this be fixed?

I live in York and have been having the same problem but it’s finally fixed! I watch Bob’s Burgers every night at 1 AM and tonight it’s actually on for the first time in weeks! I was going to call tomorrow and cancel cable… not just because of this but it sure wasn’t helping. But I’m so happy to see the show I fall asleep to every night that cable is safe for now!
I live in Michigan and this issue has been going on for over 4 weeks now. It would be great to get an update from the company. The issue is with both CW and Fox.
