What happened to the Smart Channell (338)

It was working fine this morning around 4am then it jumped to channel 2 (CBS).  I tried to get it back using the voice option and by putting in 338 and it still goes to channel 2. What's going on?

Where are you located? I've never heard of that one. Not sure if it was being broadcast by a local TV station and they may have dropped it, meaning Comcast will no longer carry it.

I echo what was said about the channel START TV. We are located in the Chicago area, me being in a suburb. START TV has been available for the last couple of years. I watched it a lot. Don't know about Channel 2 (WBBM) dropping it. Can you find out?

Your post mentions Smart TV, not START TV. I'm in the Chicago area and it is working.

If "Smart" channel was on 338 then you are referring to Start TV.  According to their website you should also be able to get this on 1176 HD [Chicago/WBBM].
