Comcast's answer dodges the question and is deflecting at best. They've dropped several ESPN networks recently. ESPN FC is still posting content from their shows on their site, so the show has not been cancelled.
So yes, technically, Comcast has not control over what is broadcast over ESPNs network. But if the station for ESPN FC suddenly disappears from the ESPN package, then that's a problem for Comcast to answer.\
Has Comcast recently dropped some ESPN channels? If so, what has been dropped?
***UPDATE*** See below.
Looks like EPSN is the culprit here.
Acutally, it is ESPN's fault.
They launched their new ESPN+ service. It's a streaming app that provides 'exclusive' content from the ESPN catalogue.
Unfortunately, ESPN FC has been pulled from live TV and is only available on their $50/year app.
