if your default guide view is set to free to me only the channels you subscribe to will be on the guide. you can see your entire numbered channel lineup on a smart device with the Xfinity My Account app after pressing the TV tab. there is a link at the top to see your entire subscription. What is the error code and message that you are seeing when you select a channel and the channel fails to tune?

I am often searching the channel guide to see what is on. and I have not memorized what channels I own - so often I select a channel and then wait for the error to tell me that I don't own it - and there have been times that I own a channel and months later I bump into it and am annoyed that I could have been watching it all this time. and i was hoping that the guide that says "free to me" would resolve this - but, it too has a lot of channels that I don't own - so that is not a vaild solution. it would be nice if Comcast could turn all the channels that I own green so I know what I can watch.
