Why is ComCast trying to disguise "HITZ" as actual channels?
This may have been asked here before, and this post will probably be deleted by a retired Comcast employee, but here goes:
When Comcast ripped Cinemax out from under us and gave us their worthless HITZ "network", they apparently created channel entries in the program guide. I see three of these pseudo channels on my selection that actually look like there is a movie in progress or coming up.
When you click on one of these pseudo channels, it's revealed that you have to use on-demand streaming to view whatever movie might have piqued your interest, though. Kind of a bait and switch tactic to make us subscribers feel better about losing channels that we thought we were paying for.
Is this the future of comcast? Will we only see a big menu of movies that are "now playing", but really just available if you go stream them? If so, what's the value of cable movie channels?
