Movieplex "subscription"?

We were told that Movieplex would no longer be available, and the channel has been removed.  But when I go on to OnDemand under "Movies", then "Free Movies", then "By Network", I find Movieplex in the menu.  When I go into that, I find movie categories and titles -- all of which are Free With SubscriptionWhat subscription?  And why is this under FREE Movies?

My  question exactly.  No notice, no warning.  Movieplex on demand was free, now it is "free with subscription".  It either needs to go back to being free, or it needs to be removed from the 'free movies' section of on demand. 

But I guess when you are a huge company like Xfinity / Comcast and pretty much the only game in town, you can get away with just about anything.  Even price gouging?

As part of Xfinity's agreement with Starz, they removed MoviePlex from the Xfinity TV channel lineup.  So, what is there to subscribe to even if you wanted to?

When this topic first posted on the 5th, I was able to (and did) watch a movie from Movieplex On Demand for free.  By the evening of the 7th, the change to "Free with Subscription" took place in my area as well.  But even now, all the movies in the Movieplex folders are free on Xfinity Stream (Movieplex is no longer a listed network on Xfinity Stream - one must search the movie title).

VOD Team, please fix this and provide the Movieplex On Demand movies for free as promised.

The disparity between linear cable On Demand and Xfinity Stream is not yet corrected.

Can this be fixed for the weekend?

Not yet fixed. 

For example The Couch Trip: free via Xfinity Stream but "Free With Subscription" via On Demand.  Please work with the network (STARZ?) to make the content available on our TVs.
