These 3 stations were among the few that I watched on a regular basis. What happened to them and how do we get them back?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Where are you located? All of those channels are carried by a local broadcast TV station. The station may have dropped those networks, or the station may have been dropped by Comcast for various reasons, including "Designated Market Area" issues.
I was wondering the same thing !! I have contacted Comcast C/S, and the two regional managers concerning the same question, but, as of yet, have not received any legitimate reply / resolve. Those channels were viewed a LOT in THIS household, and if not restored, then....
.....that that fiber optic TV & Internet provider ("Metronet") who keeps sending their advertisements to my home just MAY be getting a call from me.
P.S. How am I going to survive without "Svengoolie"??!! (lol) !!!!! ~D.R.
Comcast doesn't have anything to do with it. These are digital sub-channels of over-the-air local stations. Over time, numerous networks of the MeTV variety have sprung up, and it seems the local stations bounce around between them somewhat often. They get contracts to carry them, which expire, and the local stations try something else. Comcast simply re-broadcasts the digital sub-channels, they have no control over the programming. Do some Wikipedia research on these networks for a better understanding of how they work.
Well....I, for one, truly appreciate you taking the time and effort to address that problem for those of us who miss certain programs on other 'other' stations that have been removed from our viewing list [ i.e. ~ 1) #433 (Cozi TV), 2) #420 (Grit TV), 3) #421, and 4) #510 (MeTV) ].
I did not realize the truth of the matter (that is, what you had written in your informative and courteous reply), but now having the info. you shared will help me to pursue the challenge of SOME how getting those channels back (if possible).
But....is there SOME way....SOME how....SOME one at Comcast could make a stand for the “Customers” and could possibly arrange (on our behalf and for our viewing pleasure) for those (very missed) channels to be added back into our monthly TV viewing package? 'Anyway at all? Is Comcast even aware of our concerns? By removing all of these well-watched programs, we (Comcast's faithful decade-long Customers) feel we have been “short-changed”....that is......NOT getting our money's worth. Sad-but-true.
Well....thanks again and reply back if you'd like. ~D.R.
I don't know why Comcast dropped Comet TV but a friend of mine who does not use cable can still get it. She has a Leaf antenna and she gets around 60 channels with it and Comet is one of them. I plan to buy one and use a splitter and just switch between Comcast and the Leaf channels in order to see the channels Comcast no longer carries.
