WHY IS COMCAST CHANGING TURNER CLASSIC MOVIES TO SPORTS PACKAGE IN OCTOBER?

I just received a notice from Comcast that they are removing TCM, Turner Classic Movies, from all current packages and moving it to the SPORTS ENTERTAINMENT PACKAGE?    What possible logic is there to that brilliant change?  TCM is widely viewed by many Comcast subscribers on their regular packages--NOT SPORTS ENTERTAINMENT PACKAGE!  I URGE COMCAST TO LEAVE TCM WHERE IT IS.  I am seriously considering cancelling my Comcast subscription over this.    Get real Comcast and leave TCM alone.  Seriously!

Stupid reason. Not client friendly.

Within the next few weeks, I will find a replacement for Comcast. I love sports but the main reason I have stayed with Comcast is that I could continue with TCM. I had Satellite Dish until a year ago when I moved from Douglasville, Georgia to Cartersville, Georgia. Moving TCM to a Sports Package is obviously done for 1 reason and we all know what that is...MONEY! So you go ahead and take my TCM channel away and my next move is to drop Comcast completely. And I hope many other people follow in my footsteps. I will begin my search Monday to replace Comcast.

Comcast, I believe you will find you have made a major blunder.

They did the same thing with EPIX a couple of months ago (although they never inform me when this happens).  They just remove a channel from the package I have and I have to add it back in for a fee if I want to watch it.  They shouldn't be allowed to do this.  I am a new customer (moved into the Seattle area last April) and I signed a contract for my survice that "guaranteed" my price would not go up for a year.  Then they removed EPIX, and to get my full package back (with EPIX) I had to pay extra for it.  In otherwords, they raised the price for the "package" I signed up for.  Now they've done it with TCM as well.  I have half a mind to lodge a formal complaint with the FCC!

It is only about money.... young people want the sports so they pay $9.99 and Comcast tacks on TCM ( which the young folks don't care about) for nothing.  Comcast then expects those of us who don't care about the sports package to pay the $9.99 for TCM.  I won't.  Where do we get a credit for the progamming that they took away?  They reduce the content of your monthly package without giving you a refund, and then they charge youu $9.99 to get the programming back..... is that the way things are suppose to work?

I hae had Turner Classic Movies (TCM) for years.  Beginning a couple of days ago when a change to TCM (channel 51 or 1755) a message on the screen states " NOT AUTORIZED".  Do anyone know why this messaged appears?

 

Thank you.

Had to sign a 2-year agrement to get service - seems like they should have to honor the package lineup for those 2 years - not get everyone to sign up for one price and then find ways to charge more money for the channels we already had - it's just not a nice thing to do to people.

I guess 200.00 bucks a month just is not enough for you. so here comes the remove so called unpopular channels bit. You and anyone else with a brain it won't stop here with this channel if they go unnaposed wait for your channel to be next. You have been warned.

 

I seriously have to think about keeping this service as I with a lot of other customers have a choice of  services in my area. I can and may cut the cable. I have no use for a sports package you could at least offer it up like the other channels alone.

Trashing TCM in a sports channel tier? It makes no sense.  TCM  shows old movies with excellent acting that puts most modern movies and actors to shame!  I looked forward to watching TCM over and over again.  TCM is an epic channel that exemplifies a historical view of most of our best actors, actresses and movies.  I am very disappointed with this change. I would consider changing to another carrier.  

A sports channel? What lunatic thought of that?  TCM IS A TREASURE TROVE OF SOME OF THE BEST MOVIES EVER MADE.   I hope Comcast reconsiders this disastrous decision.

Why did you deleting TMC from my x1Premier Triple Play package?  Will you be deleting STARZ in the near future?  Why contract for a package if you can delete channels whenever.  Are you going to reduce the price of my service? It was bad enough when you deleted Cinemax and replaced it with HITZ.

The cost of cable or satellite tv is extortionate, and the government really ought to regulate how much these companies can charge for their purposefully designed packages to milk every possible cent out of their customers. I don’t mind paying for what I want, but to be forced to pay a premium for old movies AND to have to wade through what seems like thousands of abhorrent sports channels is too much. I wonder if it bothers you to have your customers so dissatisfied with your product, and only remaining because every other option is awful, too? You can do better, if you want to, which you don’t.
