This is a kind request/plea/beg:
Can we please get MSNBC put back on our guide in Tupelo, MS? We had it at one time and then it was removed. Now we can only stream it online from the Comcast site (which we can't do due to the fear of breaking Comcast's data cap on internet usage.
Comcast owns MSNBC... yet doesn't provide it to customers. I don't understand. Not everyone in our area wants news from Fox News (which, of course, is available). I have one of the top packages available.
Apologies, MSNBC is not currently offered in your area. There are plans in the works to potentially offer this channel in your area in 2017.
All channels, regardless of affiliation, are required to go through the same application and approval process in order to be carried by Comcast.
I realize that is not the answer that you were looking for but that is the current situation and an accurate answer.
In areas where we have been trialing a data usage plan (not all areas), the usage has been increased to 1 TB. Details at the link below:
What makes this triply strange is that MSNBC is usually now in the top 5 most-watched channels across all of cable TV...though maybe not in Tupelo... And they get substantially better ratings than CNN, which I assume you do get (or maybe I assume incorrectly?).
