Chiller TV?

When will Chiller be available as a replacement for Fearnet?

Fearnet will no longer be available on Comcast/Xfinity - it's considered redundant with Chiller and SyFy already available to subscribers.  However, I don't see Chiller anywhere in my networks listings, so how does was Fearnet redundant to me?  When will Chiller be available as Fearnet's replacement, and will it be free like Fearnet was?

Re: Fearnet shutdown

So where is Chiller? If you are going to get rid of Fearnet should it not be replaced with Chiller? And how soon. Thank you in advance.

Re: Fearnet shutdown

Since Fearnet has been shut down then when are we going to get Chiller. This is not fair as I watched this channel all of the time and now I found out it can be accessed on the new Latino channel if you subscribe to it, this is not fair because I do not speak spanish and why should I pay a fee for a show that I always got for free. Comcast should think this over and getthe new show back on so people can watch what they want!

Boo to Comcast Xfinity!  Why didn't they Announce the changes from FEARNET to Chiller? Very Unfair Smiley Sad

We get notice for everything else....and to put it in Spanish only is really a Big Boo on you...

Fear is Gone, Where is Chiller?!

Recently, I was looking for one of my favorite channels, Fear, which was channel 176, & it was gone! I looked it up and was sad to see that Fear is no longer around. Apparently it wasn't as successful as it needed to be and was bought out. I read that fans of the Fear network could look to SyFy for their thriller programming but honestly Syfy just doesn't compare.

 

People who enjoy thriller/horror flicks, had it all with the Fear channel and now those fans are at a loss. Now, Chiller, a channel not currently available through comcast would be a nice replacement for said thriller/horror fans. It is a bit unfair that a channel that was appreciated by many was just deleted and not even given a replacement channel.

 

Does anyone agree? Does anyone know of any plans to give horror/thriller fans a channel they deserve? My brother and I had the Fear channel amongst our favs, and have felt the loss of the entertainment the channel provided. With only a couple months until Halloween it would be nice to see a new channel to give us back our Fear.Cat Frustrated

Re: Fear is Gone, Where is Chiller?!

HOW UNFAIR OF YOU COMCAST. THERE ARE MANY OF US WHO LOOKED FORWARD TO WATCHING THE LATEST ADDITIONS TO FEARNET EACH WEEK. THERE IS BUZZ ON THE INTERNET ABOUT A CHANNEL CALLED CHILLER, BUT CALLS TO CUSTOMER SERVICE FAILED TO LOCATE ANY COMCAST EMPLOYEES WHO KNEW ANYTHING ABOUT THIS CHANNEL. NOW I HAVE NO CABLE HORROR CHANNEL AND MUST SETTLE FOR WHAT I CAN GET USING NETFLIX.IF I CAN FIND A DECENT HORROR CHANNEL ON DISH OR FIOS IT WILL BE SO LONG COMCAST.

Why does Comcast Cable not carry Chiller TV when they own the Network as i kind of find that stupid to own a network that is not on Comcast Cable.

Comcast continues to be in discussions with Chiller regarding possible distribution. A contract and agreement to terms is required before we can offer any channel to our customers. These need to be terms that make sense for both parties and for our customers.

All channels, regardless of affiliation, are required to go through the same application and approval process in order to be carried by Comcast.

The Comcast programming teams and local management teams constantly evaluate programming choices and make decisions based on customer interests, costs, channel bandwidth management and contractual obligations.
The Comcast employees who participate in these forums certainly pass along your collective feedback, interests and concerns to those teams.

As with any business, situations may change based on customer demand, channel bandwidth opportunities, business opportunities, costs and contractual obligations.

Re: When will Chiller be available as a replacement for Fearnet?

Well, that's a nicely put auto response.

To put it better, though. Since Comcast bought Fearnet and closed it down in favor of their own Chiller, which has far less web presence, edits their movies and has no On Demand, one would assume that Chiller would be on Xfinty. With all due respect, It's already owned by Comcast, so any talks of negotiating anything sounds silly.

If Comcast chooses to take away one thing, they should at least replace it with the other. It's already September.

Dish does not carry Chiller anymore (for at least 2 years).  Syfy is not Chiller.  Sure wish they would give us channels we want.  I have at least 50 they can take off.

For what I pay to Comcast, please add Chiller, we really don't need another baby channel to sit our children in front of, I pay the bill and want to see more adult channels like Chiller, channels I enjoy watching, I can't speak for other people but I like horror flicks and Fear. Net just isn't cutting it for me.

Would be nice to have especially with Halloween coming up. Seriously though, love comcast TV, blows away any other provider with its VOD and channel lineup. Would love to see some more programming added to the current lineup, would even drop my premium channels to see Chiller, CLOO and Animation network on xfinity.

Re: Chiller TV?

I'm getting pretty sick of all the darn Hallmark channels. I'm not a fan of sappy - and mostly awful, definitely formulaic - romance movies. Chiller isn't SyFy: Chiller is horror, SyFy is....well, I'm not sure what. Some of the programming is good, but most of the movies are cheaply made in poor Eastern European countries, and are just terrible. Give us some Chiller, Comcast! I (Oh, is Hallmark owned by Comcast? Because I used a "bad word, da*n," in my post & had to clear it up. I inserted "darn" instead, but I could certainly make it clearer: crappy, boring, redundant, etc......)

Both Syfy and Chiller are NBC Universal cable channels.

Re: Chiller TV?

Let me get this correct Comcast Cable has to negotiate with itself to put on a channel that they already own which i think its kind of stupid

C'mon Comcast! Add Chiller NOW!!!!!!!!

Re: CHILLER TV PLEASE

I agree.  I have so many channels that I never use but they are part of the package I have.  I don't need shopping channels or religious channels.  I'd like to have a FearNet/Chiller option for free, like I used to have.  But it's December now and I don't see any progress on that front.  It's very frustrating and discouraging.

Re: Chiller TV?

we want to get the Chiller channel on comcast it's a great channel and we want the channel on the comcast line up of shows so please at it in your package thank you.

Re: Chiller TV?

AT&T has both Syfy and Chiller, so it really isn't the case of Syfy being Comcast's answer to Chiller. I am hoping if enough people go to Chiller TV and put in the request to have Comcast offer Chiller. (If it would do any good.)

 

Despite Chiller blocking out swear words, it does show the good gore in horror. I am glad the thread is keeping alive and that Comcast will consider adding it.

 

I have been a loyal customer for over 20 years, and hoping Comcast will hear our voices.

 

PLEASE ADD CHILLER TV. You will make many many horror fans very happy.

Hello,

 

When will Chiller be available on Comcast in Chicago?

If you plan to make it available, are you going to make it a premium channel, or included with Basic?

Re: Chiller TV?

That's crazy it isn't on Comcast lineup I just got rid of Dish so I can have better tv cuz I already have the Internet & the only channel missing is Chiller Tv... Love the service so far & viewing live tv on my phone? AMAZING!!! Only thing i don't like is the limitation on space... My Dish dvr could record a lot more I had over 100 recordings but could only record 2 shows at a time & now space fills pretty quickly on Comcast's but I can record up to 6... so it's ok I guess... Hopefully it continues to get better...
