If these local sub-channels were dropped by your local television station for over the air broadcasting, Comcast can currently no longer carry the channel over cable.

The original poster isn't referring to subchannels of KOMO and KING, but to "Channel 4" KOMO and "Channel 5" KING (i.e. broadcast channels 4.1 and 5.1). They are ABC and NBC stations, respectively.

That being the case, are these channels still broadcast over the air, and are they in his local OTA area? If he was getting these on cable, but outside of his metro area, these stations may have complained about this situation.

Do they still show up on the guide?

Also, are there any other NBC or ABC stations that you receive?
