I subscribed for Root Sports

Now you’ve taken it away unless I want to pay HOW MUCH????? To keep it? But I bet you will hold me to my end of the contract. [Edited: "Inflammatory"]. Extremely unhappy. Customer for many, many years

Exactly, we want to watch local sport teams on our current plan, not have to pay more NOW to do it!

I am a Diamond member. Have been a customer from day one of Comcast's existence. I signed up for a certain package of channels which had Root Network. For Comcast to just go and take it away is fraud. I am moving on from Comcast since they are only in for the money from us of course. There are other options to explore.

<--  Former @Home cable internet customer, so I was right there with you at the beginning.

I have it on my schedule to visit the local Xfinity store tomorrow for some arm wrestling.  They want me to pay $180/month for 400mbps internet and the Premium Package of TV channels.  If they will move me to 200mbps internet for under $80/month, "Hello, Fubo!".

For the 99% of subscribers who do NOT watch Root Sports, they will be happy about the $8.95 reduction in their bill. Sports networks are EXPENSIVE and have been a major cause of cord cutting. AT&T SportsNet is shutting down. Bally Sports (formerly Fox Sports) is in bankruptcy and has dropped many teams and may lose entire sports franchises. Some services that have started individual streaming often start at nearly $20/month.

I understand your point, but comcast is changing the rules in the middle of the game. I’m required to subscribe to hundreds of channels I don’t watch. How is that substantially different?

I chose to stay with xfinity because I could get Root Sports on that tier and follow the Mariners. It was more than I would pay to ‘cut the cord’ but I was willing to pay that. Now I have to pay 20 more dollars and get loads of channels I won’t watch for the privilege of watching Root sports. Community edited my comment to take out Bait and Switch, but that’s sure what it looks like to me, the customer
