Newsmax

As of today, I cannot get newsmax in our area.  It makes sense to me that Xfinity is censoring the real truth, just like Twitter.  Fox News is not longer reliable to me since they turned on Trump

It’s not available on TiVo, it’s an IP channel only available on X1 boxes

So your "real truth" is a "news" network that just accepts everything Trump says as factual?

Well, I agree with the OP.  This channel should be on 1115.  I called Comcast yesterday and the rep said that it would be in service by "tomorrow" (which is now today), but the channel still isn't on.  Comcast says it's included in the Preferred package.  Oddly, I can stream the channel via Xfinity Stream, but it's not showing up on our Tivo.  The rep blamed the problem on Newsmax, but that sounds like something of a cop-out/bad excuse.

CCAndrew, thanks for the reply.  That's interesting, because I specifically pointed out to the rep that I had a Tivo box.  I guess she either didn't pick up on that or didn't know it was an IP only channel.  It is interesting that Comcast would happen to pick Newsmax as one of its "IP-only" channels.   Do you happen to know if there are any other channels which are "IP-only" on Comcast?  I'd be curious to know which ones are.

Use the Xfinity Stream app to compare your TiVo, and look for channels that aren’t on your TiVo

Buzz off studolgon “Valued”Contributor . Stop trolling on a question area for real customers and stop trying to censor and force conformity. Some of us are not interested in propaganda but actual news.
