Weatherscan channel

Hi,

My weather scan channel no longer is displayed. Did this channel move or do we have an additional channel as my current bill includes payment for this channel. If the channel is removed will it be reflected in the bill?

 weather channel 101  hasn't been working for over a week. Tried talking comcast  that was about as useful as a one legged cat trying to bury a turd on a frozen lake.

 

If I'm lucky the will take more channels away and raise my bill.

What happened to the WeatherScan101 channel? I used it constantly to check the weather in real time. The weather channel 31 is useless.

I am wondering what's happening with channel 101, weatherscan?  It is telling me to go to the Weather Channel or local station.  Please don't remove that channel.

Weather Channel

Why on God's green earth did you take the Weather channel (101) off the air. There are a great number of people including myself that watched this channel more than once a day.

Dosen't make any sense. Please bring it back.

Re: Weather Channel

Comcast Please reconsider your decision to discontinure the Weatherscan Channel 101..   I use this several times a day in my business.   Waiting for the Weather Channel on the "8"'s just doesn't cut it.   PLEASE RECONSIDER!!

Re: Missing "weatherscan" channel-where'd it go?

Hi Mmmmmb -- Weatherscan channel is no longer available with our service. Local weather information can be viewed on The Weather Channel with Local on the 8's, on X1 with the Weather App, on non-X1 with Main Menu > Local Weather, and with Home Security weather information on the Touchscreen Controller.

Re: Channel 101

Hi Djank003 -- Weatherscan was removed as part of a business decision. Aside from The Weather Channel, you can view local weather information on X1 platform using the Weather App, on non-X1 platform by going to Main Menu > Local Weather, and by viewing weather information on the Home Security Touchscreen Controller.

Bring back Weather Scan Channel 101

The elimination of Weather Scan Channel 101 is a mistake.  I know many of your viewers check the channel

multiple times daily, especially during stormy weather.

 

With all the channels in the Xfinity lineup, eliminating Weather Scan is puzzling.  Xfinity must think aout their community before profit and activate Weather Scan ASAP

Weather Scan channel removed

I have noticed that Comcast has removed the very useful "Weather Scan" channel.

Is comcast going to give money back for the loss of this service? 

 

Comcast constantly reminds us of how they are making our service better, yet a wonderful service like "Weather Scan" has been removed from our channel line-up.  

How does removing The "Weather Scan" channel improve our service? 

 

Sadly, I expect my concerns will probably only fall on corporate deaf ears because in my town, as with many, there is no compitition for cable or internet service.

Weatherscan Channel

Who's the Einstein at Comcast who decided to drop the Weatherscan Channel? Out of all the useless channels that we're overpaying for and do not watch, an executive decision is made to cut a channel that is obviously watched by tens of thousands of your subscribers that pay your bloated salaries. Here's a novel idea....how about a focus group comprised of us ( your subscribers) that can inform you when you decide to make one of your numerous bad decisions on our behalf. And then let us give you real feedback on what programming we would like to add, drop or even keep.

Re: WEATHERSCAN

To the Xfinity personnel that answers the many  posts listed in this "WeatherSan" fourm, please do not repeat your answer because I'm sure you can read but maybe not comprehend, your customers do not want to go to the weather channel and wait ten minutes, or go to the local stations that present the weather @ 4:30am, 7:00am, 12:00 noon, 6:00pm or 11:00pm and finally your APP offering is equivalent to what is offered in a daily newspaper subscription.

Bring back Weatherscan!

Please bring back local channel 101 Weatherscan to our area! We don't have a local news/ weather, and waiting for the local on the 8's for the weather on the weather channel is not the most effective way to get the weather on TV. Channel 101 is not being used for anything. Why not put it back? My family & I miss it, as it was usually very accurate. I would send this as an email, but there is no way to do so.

Weatherscan

Why was Weatherscan dropped? We watch it every day, multiple times per day. It helps us plan for the day in the morning, and it helps us prepare for the next day in the evening. Most important is that it provided valuable information during severe weather with their alerts, and the radar enabled us to know what was coming so we could prepare. It's was the best local weather avenue available. The Weather Channel focuses more on national weather and programming about past storms, etc., and you have to wait and wait to even find something about your local area. Please reinstate Weatherscan to our lineup.

Real reason why Weatherscan was dropped?

I knew it was coming, but this week my Weatherscan channel 101 was removed from the Deerfield/Pompano Beach FL market. The main thread (which no longer allows for replies) says that it was a "business decision" to remove it. I would like to know what this business decision was, as there are a ton of other "stupid" channels that Comcast has continued to carry for years, that I bet almost no one watches.

The regular Weather Channel use to be good, but years ago it transformed into more of an entertainment Channel and often times has programming that has little to nothing to do with current weather conditions.

 

I personally have used Weatherscan for many years to check my current weather, radar, and 7 day forcast, as it is on 24x7. Was the price of the channel so expensive that Comcast could no longer pay for it (which we pay for anyway with our monthly bill)? Why not offer it as a subscription pay channel, like $5-7/month so that at least people are given the option to pay extra for it if they want?

Re: What happened to Weatherscan Local on 101?

I really thought that this unfortunate & very I'll advised "business decision" by Comcast regarding Weatherscan would be reversed. Apparently not. The radar information provided by the alternative station is not nearly as good with it's cartoon graphics & 15 minute lag time. The apps are even worse. With the changes in the intensity & frequency of storm's in Florida & elsewhere, Comcast has taken a step backwards. Comcast is not taking into account their responsibility as a media provider of serving the people of our community, many of whom do not use or are unable to view the small images on smart phones. Weatherscan was a far superior resource that many of your subscribers counted on for, not only their everyday weather information, but also for the best second by second information regarding their safety during weather emergencies. Shame on you, Comcast!
