Thank you so much for those additional details as it is extremely helpful for troubleshooting and better understanding your concerns! Just to confirm I understand, is the channel is showing content that is different than the content listed in the guide?

@ComcastJen Hello. Yes Channels 251 and 1188 previously showed the Laff channel. Now they appear to be showing DABL. I believe this is a local station affiliation change but can you confirm that please? And to clarify, the xfinity guide still shows them as Laff

Having same problem with Laff. Showing Dabl channel instead. Are you going to put back Laff program?

@user_8d9861 Where (i.e. what ZIP code) do you live? It's possible that the station that was carrying Laff decided on its own to switch to Dabl, in which case Xfinity can't replace it with another Laff channel unless there is another station in your area that is carrying it.

My zip code is 30126 and I am having the same issue and so is the Xfinity location in my area.  They have a television in their lobby and it is the same programming issue too and DABL is now also on the Antenna TV LAFF channel.  Xfinity had no answer.

You two are having the same problem as the person in this thread. The short version: WSB has apparently dropped Laff and replaced it with Dabl. Comcast can't bring Laff back unless it finds another nearby station that carries it.
