Why is ComCast trying to disguise "HITZ" as actual channels?

Why is ComCast trying to disguise "HITZ" as actual channels?

This may have been asked here before, and this post will probably be deleted by a retired Comcast employee, but here goes:

 

When Comcast ripped Cinemax out from under us and gave us their worthless HITZ "network", they apparently created channel entries in the program guide.  I see three of these pseudo channels on my selection that actually look like there is a movie in progress or coming up.

 

When you click on one of these pseudo channels, it's revealed that you have to use on-demand streaming to view whatever movie might have piqued your interest, though.  Kind of a bait and switch tactic to make us subscribers feel better about losing channels that we thought we were paying for.

 

Is this the future of comcast?  Will we only see a big menu of movies that are "now playing", but really just available if you go stream them?  If so, what's the value of cable movie channels?

Glad you mentioned it.  I just saw an old movie, The Net on Hitz I'd like to watch and you just cannot get it.
