So, is this channel going to actually be added to TV or is just going to be something that is streamed? right now it's only available to be streamed.
These 2 channels, along with Z Living HD (1495) are only distributed through the X1 platform. People on older boxes, as well as those on Tivo will not receive these channels, from all accounts I have heard.
There is no linear version of these channels, and no intent to add them, as far as I am aware.
So, what is the bottom lline with Newsmax? Does Comcast have the intention of making it a regular TV channel? Or will it always be a channel that has to be streamed? Orginally, Comcast stated that it would be placed on their digtal starter package. But from what I've been told, that has not happened yet.
I recently had a TiVo and was also unable to watch those channels until I moved to the X1. I was told by some one at Comcast is testing iptv some channels in some markets.
