I have read about this before and We have been cautioned by many on here Comcast blames the cable network as being greedy and the cable network blames Comcast as being greedy the end result is we loose!!!
My most recent loss ( all to save the same $10 I had with the previous package but still keep the same Triple play Starter cable, phone and internet) was TV Land - No Longer Available- gone it really no big deal since I can always hopefully still get MeTV on Comcast and Anntenna TV ( with an antenna over the air and switch off Comcast signal when to watch it locally) but it is the principle. TV Land is a Basic commerical cable network that has been on the air for 24 years with only classic shows no real current orginal programming owned by Viacom - a former cable company. How can they be asking more money to have Comcast broadcast repeats and same programs offered by over the air channels or other cable networks?
Before everyone was greedy all commerical channels were part one basic package ( sports, news, variety and special interest) non commerical pay channels like movie channels were an extra fee and life was simple customers happy. I was told Peacock ( owned by Comcast) has many of the same program- just be careful not everything on Peacock is free and the signal quality is bad even with Comcasts most powerful Blast package - no other internet issues. So to all of you valued customers out there Be careful your favorite channel today in your area may be gone tomorrow.
