Well, I agree with the OP. This channel should be on 1115. I called Comcast yesterday and the rep said that it would be in service by "tomorrow" (which is now today), but the channel still isn't on. Comcast says it's included in the Preferred package. Oddly, I can stream the channel via Xfinity Stream, but it's not showing up on our Tivo. The rep blamed the problem on Newsmax, but that sounds like something of a cop-out/bad excuse.
CCAndrew, thanks for the reply. That's interesting, because I specifically pointed out to the rep that I had a Tivo box. I guess she either didn't pick up on that or didn't know it was an IP only channel. It is interesting that Comcast would happen to pick Newsmax as one of its "IP-only" channels. Do you happen to know if there are any other channels which are "IP-only" on Comcast? I'd be curious to know which ones are.
