Comcast removed STAR from all packages in February and then added it back as a seperate option for $5 month. They knew that there were several programs that were continuing such as Outlander and by removing it, they get the change to fleece us for money. Did anyone see the supposed notice for removal or was it hidden somewhere?
It's Starz, not Star. There was a big deal about this several months ago, with giant threads here in the Comcast forums. There were notices in the monthly bill. If you view online, you often need to view the full bill PDF to see the notices.
It was mainly a fight over $$$. For many, Starz and Encore were replaced by Epix and Screenpix.
