Investigation Discovery? (And Boomerang)

I tried to watch my ID channel last night and got the message that a subscription is required for this channel.  I have the Digital Preferred Tier (210+ Channels).  I looked at the channel lineup for my area and do not even see this listed anymore.  What happened to it?  Will it be coming back?


Also, is there a chance of getting Boomerang added to my area's lineup?


My zip is 20832

Employee ComcastTeds has posted that Comcast has made the bizarre decision to include ID channel and several others in Digital Starter only (don't know about Boomerang). says:


In many areas, there are 6 channels that are not in any of the bundle packages. They are specific to Digital Starter only and one cannot get them in any of the "above" packages either (Digital Preferred, etc).


They are ID (investigation Discovery), Oxygen, TruTV, UP, WE, and WGN. These channels are only available only with the Digital Starter package.

I had these channels until recently and did watch them. A month or so ago I got rid of my full Comcast lineup that included l movie channels and that's when they went away so I'm not understanding why I'm being told they're for digital starter only when I had them up until I went to a lower package, just not the lowest of digital starter.
