Why did this longtime Comcast station just disappear?

Apologies, I was able to locate the below printed on your Comcast statement dated 10/17/2020

 

Effective December 8, 2020, WJXT-Dabl (SD) channel 230 will no longer be
available on this channel line-up. WJXT-Dabl programming can still be found on
(HD) channel 1172. In addition, on the same effective date, WFOX MY/ME SD
channel 29 and HD channel 1031 will no longer be available on this channel
lineup. WFOX HD will move from channel 436 to channel 220. Programming for
WFOX HD can still be found on channel 1184.

 

Not sure of the exact reason, but it could be at the request of the local station or a contractual issue.

Just found this. Doesn't seem to work on the basic set top boxes. 😥 https://www.metv.com/

Why has this channel been removed, and without any notice?

@jax.jags  In your area MeTV is broadcast locally on a subchannel (secondary channel) of WFOX-TV in Jacksonville. 

 

The station likely will have an update to provide.

MeTV is pretty much always carried as a sub channel of a local affiliate. The local affiliate likely dropped the channel, not Xfinity. They have have no say. That is my understanding.

I agree MouseD. My 84 year old Mother in-law is facing the same issue with a different cable company and she just doesn’t have the desire to sit on the phone and wait for a live person from another country to listen to her complaints and make empty promises and apologies.
Where’s the FCC in all this highway robbery by these cable providers?

I spoke too soon. The new channels both work on our HD box, but neither are on our SD boxes.
Any advice?

Best advice is to upgrade your equipment, you shouldn’t have any SD equipment, it looks like the SD feed is no more. Essentially the same price

You guys seem to be the best and easiest source for information.
Can I upgrade our 2 other boxes that are NOT SD without costing me more?

I just talked to technical guy at WJAX local CBS. He said, as I read in MeTV email reply, that Comcast has moved it to 1184. That channel is not in my lineup. Can’t get anybody at Comcast
