Starz Truth?! - The website contradicts itself

This implies the Main Starz and Starz OnDemand are staying, while the other Starz channels are going away.  https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/starz-changes

 

This implies that all Startz are going away in favor of Epix, a totally inferior option. https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/epix-on-xfinity

 

Have Xfinity not heard of cord cutting? I'm a 20 year subscriber, paying, as shocking as this sounds, $50,000 in that time. I'll take my business elsewhere - there are tons of options today.

 

So what's really happening? Can you at least address this and keep your website up to date? I'm not paying a cent more than I do today and will absolutely cancel if this moves ahead.

"Starz a la Carte Channel Changes"

Beginning on December 10, 2019, we will be reducing the number of Starz channels we offer while continuing to offer the main Starz channel and all Starz On Demand content. Starz will continue to be available to you a la carte through the end of December, and we are working hard to reach a deal with Starz to preserve the right to offer you that option beyond December 31.

On December 10, the following Starz channels will be removed from our channel lineup:
  • Starz Edge
  • Starz in Black
  • Starz Comedy
  • Starz Cinema

Adding EPIX and Removing Starz from Packages

Why are you replacing Starz with EPIX in our Xfinity TV Packages?

We pay programmers like networks, local TV station owners and others for the ability to bring their programming to you. We regularly review our programming and sometimes make changes to ensure we're offering a wide variety of programming at the best value. We look at a variety of factors, including customer viewership and programming costs when making these decisions.

Given this, we decided to replace all Starz channels included in packages with EPIX. This will help us manage programming costs that are passed on to our customers while continuing to make this content available to those who want to watch it. On December 10, 2019, the following Starz channels and associated on demand content will be removed from packages:

  • Starz
  • Starz Edge
  • Starz in Black
  • Starz Comedy
  • Starz Cinema
  • Starz Kids & Family
     

If you would like to continue to view Starz and Starz On Demand, you'll need to subscribe to Starz a la carte for $12 per month. Learn more about how to add Starz.
