Was court tv dropped from xfinity lineup?

Here we go again with another unexpected lineup change.  I have been unable to access Court TV for a couple of days.  The tv guide list for ch 17 & 438 as Court TV/WHDT but it is not Court TV that is broadcasting.  It seems to be called The Florida Channel which is 24 hrs news & weather from all over Florida.  Who needs more news?  If you want weather, go to the Weather Ch.   I called Xfinity & the rep had no idea what I was talking about.  Kept saying that since tv guide for 17 & 438 indicate channels as listing Court TV, then it must be so.  But, I am going to assume that the rep is not answering a phone located in my area of Florida so there is no way she can check it out. There has been no announcement of this change whatsoever.  

Meanwhile, where is Court TV?  Did it get assigned to another channel?  Was Court TV dropped from the lineup?  Why?

Court TV is a local sub-channel. Check with your local station to see if it was dropped from local OTA, or cancelled contract with Comcast. It might still be there if you can reach the station with an antenna.

If you do buy an antenna (inside our outside), get a amplified antenna. That will improve the range.

Thank you for your reply.  I was told that Court TV is now only accessible with antenna.  Roku has Court TV app, so you can stream it.  But with streaming, you cannot use DVR to record to watch at a later time.  So, you either watch as it is being broadcast or you lose out. Court TV does not archive an entire program from previous broadcasts. That makes it impossible to pick up where you left off. Rep/Agent at Comcast denied any knowledge of why it isnt on cable.  The identity of ch 17 & 438 still indicates "Court TV".   I think it is an 'affiliate' of WPTV.  I called WPTV but voice mail was full & got hung up on.  

Is an indoor antenna any good at receiving signal?  Is it possible for me to use an indoor antenna & get OTA as well as cable? To record an OTA program, would I need to use a recorder like a VCR?  (Dont laugh. I still have one!) 

I am in a homeowners association. I pay for cable through my HOA dues. Those dues get taken out whether I watch cable or not.  So it isnt like I can 'cancel' that payment & watch OTA channels.  Even with streaming you have to pay the cable co. for internet access--which is less $ if you get a 'triple play'.  Then you have to pay all these different streaming services.  For the life of me, I do not understand how people think they're saving $ by cutting the cord.  But if comcast/xfinity keeps dropping channels I prefer to watch they may force me off their billing plan. So at the moment I feel like I am in a no-win situation.  gawd.  I think the madness in the world started with the cable company treatment of customers!

Any advice about antenna would be appreciated.

@jrosie46 It depends on how far and the terrain. I can get stations local stations as far as 30 miles or so away with an indoor Antenna. I am in in a hilly area. Now that OTA are digital the range and pic is better. I just have it on one TV.

It also depends where the stations tower is. Here in Western Lancaster County Pa A station is located in near Lancaster City and the tower is in the next County in Eastern York County Pa and actually closer to me then their station.

In case any Court tv fans are struggling with the Court tv streaming app, Court tv back in the xfinity line up.  Here on the "treasure coast" (florida) it is on channel 225.  I hope this channel is available to all the court tv fans.  Also "Court TV mystery" channel is 223.
