Re: When will FETV be back on?

Andyross why do you feel the need to cut/paste your response over and over again regarding FETV?  It is odd, are you really just a xfinity customer?

Losing a channel

I want to log a formal complaint. I just learned that as of today, 6/30/2020, I will no longer be able to get the FETV channel. I am so disappointed. I love this channel. It has a lot of the shows I grew up with, laughed with. I really enjoyed watching these old shows. Brings back memories of a simpler, safer time. There is something to be said about nostalgia, being able to escape reality for a little while given what the world is going through now. Please reconsider and keep this channel!

Re: Losing a channel

Did you read the full thread about FETV? They are PAYING Comcast to LEASE a channel, and are dorpping it some areas because there are not enough viewers to cover the cost of the lease.

FETV

I am very upset with your decision to cancel the FETV.  I don't understand what is wrong with you people.  You took TCM which was an horrendous move, now you want to take away more DECENT tv,  

at the rate you are going you are going to be losing alot of business.

 

You also make me pay fees for things that I never use.  Example: Sports Fees, I don't watch sports ever.  But have to pay anyway.

 

If this keeps up or maybe even still, I will be looking for a better company to provide my sevices!!!!  I am sure I'm not the only person feeling this way.

 

Whatever happened to customize your service?  Customers should be able to decide what chanels they want to watch without having to having to pay for chanels they never watch.

 

THINK ABOUT THAT!!!!

Re: FETV

Yes this is ridiculous and unacceptable to drop fetv. Someone keeps responding that it’s because fetv is leasing a channel and dropping it due to low volume of customers viewing, but likely it’s because of Comcast’s ridiculous leasing rates!!!??? Comcast charges WAY TOO much for cable and I agree that we pay for many channels we don’t even watch. In addition, the few family friendly channels like fetv that we do watch is also getting dropped in the Denver area. I’m very upset over this and will likely go back to satellite if they don’t resolve this issue and keep airing fetv. In addition, Metv is also not shown in the front range area and keeps saying “coming soon” for months with no resolution. I hope that if Comcast doesn’t negotiate a more affordable lease rate for fetv and it’s dropped that many Comcast customers will waive goodbye. It’s what they deserve.

Re: FETV

Yea we all know that other channels can be seen ota but none of the others show Lassie, Sgt. Preston, Lone Ranger, Wild Wild West that fetv does show and it's not a sub channel that can be seen ota. Plus the fact that a channel dropped without notice is out of our control and i at least decide what company and package I'm willing to pay for based on available channels. I feel like I'm being cheated!
