You took away CMT what does it cost to get  it back?

I think that is pretty crummy since Nashville is on there now.

You will need to call into Comcast at 1-800-266-2278 or 1-800-934-6489 and speak with a CSR about which package subscription will get you CMT and the additional cost to you for that subscription.

Re: cmt

CMT is still carried in areas that previously had it, but in many areas, it has moved to the Sports & Entertainment package.

So you move the CMT channel which Nashville was moved to and knowing how many people fought to keep that show on the air, you make it so they have to pay for another package. I am paying enough to you guys $179.00/mo and this is what you do. Can't wait for my contract to end so I can look at other options. Shame on you Comcast and the greed that is over taking this company.

CMT was moved to Sports and Entertainment in January 2016.  CMT did not acquire Nashville until May 2016 after it was canceled by ABC in March 2016.

If you want to watch Nashville but don't have CMT, it is broadcast on Nickelodeon, your Chs SD 40, SD 124 and HD 740 a couple of hours after CMT airs it.

Re: lost channels

I agree with all!  My wife and enjoy watching the CMT Network and Comcast just decides to delete it from our programing package. We have a contract with Comcast which has been broken.  If more folks complain maybe they will listen.

It costs $9.99 per month for the package.

Then tell them to move CMT back! It's still listed in our channel lineup. Dumbest move ever Comcast! Comcast is nothing but a scammer!

Re: move channel to a different package

I am so glad to see all of the complaints here.

 

Add my voice to the others complaining about Comcast wanting to charge us $9.99 to get CMT back!  

 

Ridiculous!

 

Comcast, you need to change your decision-making!  It's alienating your customers, especially when they have other options.

 

Don't you realize that such decisions end up costing you revenue?  Because you will lose more customers than you will gain in revenue by trying to charge $9.99 to watch a single network!

 

In what world it that smart decision-making?

 

Fellow customers, if you want to watch Nashville, find another option such as a neighbor who has FiOS, Hulu, or pay $1.99 to Amazon or iTunes.

Re: move channel to a different package

You can watch CMT on Nick at 11:00pm, the same night CMT airs it just an hour later.  I decided to buy the sports package last week just so I could watch Nashville on CMT until I found out Nick airs it.  I dropped the sports package like a bad habit!!  I only had it for a week and that was a week too long!

Lawsuit? Bring up these shifty tactics to the FCC and other government regulatory agencies? The problem is enough people won't complain about Comcast breaking the contract by taking away/moving channels. So without a good majority of their customers voicing their displeasure nothing will happen. It's the same as Playstation Network now being pay to play on the Playstation 4. Nobody complains about it. They just pay it because 'it is the way it is'. I'm sure some of them are hoping beyond hope that someone ELSE will be the one to speak up and get things changed for them.

Not a Nashville fan, but I got hooked on Sun Studios, which I have not seen on any other channel.  The fact that I have Digital Preferred and still can't watch CMT is a little messed up!

Yes, Sports AND Entertainment.  So if CMT is considered "entertainment", why isn't MTV or VH1 bundled in that package???  I would like an answer to that!

Re: Spike / CMT / POP Mega Thread change 1/7/16 1/14/16

The same reasoning that TCM is partof the sports/entertainmentpackage, makes no sense at all.

Re: loss of channels

I would like to know if I have the same right to change a contract after it has been signed that Comcast apparently has....I signed up for a channel lineup that included Spike Channel and then at their whim it was removed because it was popular and they figured they could make more people sign up for the next higher tier by removing another popular channel from the lower priced tier.  If I agree to a 2 or 3 year contract I don't have the right to change my mind midway in the contract but apparently Comcast does.  This kind of deception is why more and more people are leaving Comcast and going to Satellite...Comcast seems to put customer satisfaction at the very bottom of their list of things to do.    ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS !!!!!!!

Re: Spike / CMT / POP Mega Thread change 1/7/16 1/14/16

I think it is a stupid thing to move CMT to a sports package because nobody really wants the sports package. Besides where is my discount for removing this off my premium package. Not so premium anymore.

Re: CMT channel

I am very confused and disappointed with Comcast programing.  I get MLB, ESPN, MTV, etc so why am I not getting CMT?  We already pay a small fortune to Comcast, I am not adding another penny to our bill so that I can watch 1 show!

Re: Tv channel

Comcast Joe, it's the same old same old.....price goes up and we lose channels. Channels get moved to a package that we can purchase for a higher price, even though the channels were part of what we originally signed up for.  Unfortunately, there's probably not a thing you can do for us.

Why can't I find CMT on Xfinity1?

My bill is almost $300 as it is - I'd think it'd be included with HBO and some of the other "entertainment" packages - NOT in the Sports and Entertainment Package. Dumb move.

Admin1

Re: Why can't I find CMT on Xfinity1?

Hi nanskates -- All channel negotiate for where they'd like to be placed within our lineup. Sports and Entertainment is where negotiations landed this channel. As this is an entertainment channel, it does fit within the Sports and Entertainment package.

Seriously?  Are you kidding me? I just changed my package to remove the sports package because we dont' need it.  I get home and find out CMT was make part of that package???  Is this a joke? What programming moron made this change?? So in order to watch Last Man Standing, I have to pay another $10 a month for the stupid sports package? This is absolutely ridiculous.... STOP MAKING STUPID PROGRAMMING CHANGES!!! Come on Comcast arent you dragging enough of our hard earned money our of our bank accounts without stooping to this lowness?  EXTREMELY UPSET AND DISAPPOINTED!!!

Actually, CMT is not even part of the premium package anymore.  It is on the Sports package. Go figure. Not that I ;ike Country Music, but I am a fan of the Nashville show, and it is not on CMT.

Comcast took a away CMT from my current package but they sure didn’t reduce the cost.
