What happened to RT News?

We'd been enjoying the different perspective on RT News (Russia Today-America) for years, available on leased channels 103 and 1099 on Comcast. Then suddenly around holiday time lately (Dec. 2018) RT news disappeared without explantion, replaced by infomercials.  What happened?

  We called Comcast, and the earnest agent was clueless, never heard of RT and of course could not find it on the official "lineup".  But SOMEBODY must know what happened!.  Any info would be appreciated.

  This smacks of Orwellian "memory hole" technique wherein unapproved stuff simply disappears without explanation.

There are some other posts on this missing channel in other sections of the country, on this forum.


The app still exists on "smart" tv's and other IPV devices.


You can also find it by using "You Tube" and using the search field to locate it by name.
