I put a post on here and got it hidden. But no worries. I'll be contacting my national and state legislators about what I believe to be monopolistic overreach on your part, and will be researching what agencies in Colorado exercise regulatory oversight over you.
In addition, I will be cancelling my subscription on March 5, when my contract expires unless you reverse this decision - and I've been a subscriber since 2002, paid you over $43K at this point. But I've finally had it. I have a casual interest in sports at best and to be forced to subscribe to a sports package for the sake of the TCM channel is offensive to me as a matter of principle.
Good luck to your $35 million/yr CEO and your $11.3 billion net-profit company. You will be losing my $243 a month come March 2020.
But them, I'm just a nobody, right? A drop in the bucket.

LOL. Still laughing. Of course you hid my post. No surprise there. I became angry about you putting TCM into a sports package that I neither want nor need, and then charging me another $10 a month for it. I mentioned I would be pursuing the complaint with my national and state legislators and also mentioned that I found out when my contract is done and that unless you reverse this action, I will be leaving you at that time. Comcast isn't for its customers. Nor it is for its workers. The only people it cares about, apparently, are its shareholders, who according to Comcast's 10K report had net profits of $11.3 billion in 2018, as well as a CEO who 'earned' $35 million. So there you have it. Hide again.
But this ISN'T resolved, and Comcast will be losing money over this decision in the long term. I've been a customer since 2002, and have paid you over $43K in that time for cable, internet and landline services, and presently (with the sports package being forced down my throat) pay you $243 a month. But you won't have that after this coming March 5 when my contract is up. Not unless you reverse this decision.
So happy, happy. Feel free to hide again. And again. And again...cause I'll keep coming back.

Yeah, I don't buy that TCM has 'low viewership.' It makes up about 30% of our viewing time. And I saw many posts on this thread from TCM viewers. I'm sure Comcast is nursing a bunch of 'dogs' in terms of stations viewed by very few people.
Please allow me to echo the suggestion that you take all these 'dogs' and offer them in the sports package, and put TCM back where it was. For a company that made $11.3 billion net profits in 2018 and whose CEO made $35 million last year, seems like you could stop gouging your customers. Maybe manage costs a slightly different way.

In the 2018 Comcast 10-K report, I see that Comcast made net income of $11.3 BILLION. Now, the company is gouging us by moving TCM into the sports package. We don't watch sports. We don't care about the other things in this package. Putting TCM in this package is likely a monopolistic overreach that can be reversed through a petition to regulating bodies our respective states. I will be researching how to petition my regulatory body against this move, because it is nothing more than an attempt to gouge customers.
Problem is, without we customers, THERE WOULD BE NO SHAREHOLDER PROFITS. I presently $231 per month, month after month after month. This means I pay Comcast $2,772 per year. Since I first signed up with Comcast in 2002, I've paid this company over $43K.
Now, I'm getting gouged for $9.99 extra a month for basically one channel, because I DON'T WANT SPORTS AND NEVER WATCH THEM. That is despicable. What this whole thing is - corporate beancounters are testing the market to see if the losses of people like me (because I'm disgusted with Comcast and will be actively pursuing other options) will be outweighed by the people who simply sigh and pay the extra.
I just got off the telephone with an agent (in the Philippines) who told me I can complain to Comcast corporate at corporate.comcast.com.
Because I am so disgusted with Comcast's complete disregard of its customers at the corporate level, I plan to call my US Senators and Representative as well as my state Rep and Senator about it, and I will be calling my county government to find out which agency can be petitioned to force Comcast to reverse this decision.
