Problem with MeTV Channel 196 in Oakland, CA

It's been down since at least early Friday afternoon. The onscreen message says "The station normally seen on this channel is currently experiencing technical difficulties. We are working with the station owner to resolve this issue as soon as possible." I've contacted Comcast support; they have opened a ticket and have contacted MeTV but they seem very slow to respond. 

 

Has anyone else run into this?

MeTV is not working. Why ?

MeTV channel 196 on Comcast has been off air for several days.  Creen says that Comcast is working with station owner to resolve this issue as soon as possible.  BS!  What is going on and when is it coming back?

There appears to be a lack of urgency and poor communication.

 

You need to keep customers updated, not responding for serveral days is really poor decision making by management.

Of all the channels offered by Comcast, MeTV is one of our favorites. We urge Comcast to solve the problem and reinstate the channel, now.

Hello Coolrules, I show that MeTV can be found on channel #196 in your area. Do you get an error message or a blank screen when trying to access this channel? Does another network play instead of MeTV?

"The programming previously offered by this station is no longer being provided"

Comcast TV listing has "This" as the replacement for MeTv but there are no shows. as others have said, MeTv provided many viwers with good TV series shows from the past. they ran "Gunsmoke" from the beginning (season 1) through to later seasons in color. I think Comcast didn't want to pay what MeTv was asking and dropped them at the end of their contract. still plenty of FOX, Latin programming, sports that i never watch, and religious programs--all completely useless to me and which i wish i could delete from my listings, but NO, Comcast doesn't care and remains the most hated company in America
