Add me to the list of disgrunted Comcast customer. I'm really just disappointed.
I was so excited when heard about POP TV a couple weeks ago and that TNA Wrestling would be moving to that channel and knew that POP had replaced the TV Guide channel that practically everyone had.
I got to see the TNA Impact premiere last week on POP. Then a few days later I check the channel and see "NOT AUTHORIZED - POP" , I am like what the heck
My subscription plan with Comcast right now is quite decent though, so I am not going to dump them for moving POP off my Digital Starter special. I'll just have to resort to the free alternatives like Xbox Media Center app streaming services.
And some folks are partially right, that part of the blame is the carrier. But in the case Comcast is just as much as carrier these days as well. They own NBC Universal, you might want to take note of the cable networks that fall under their wing, and see how they make sure their brands are easily accessible in the standard cable bracket.
(in example: TNA Wrestling competitor is the WWE, the WWE airs it's programming on the USA Network, the USA Network is owned by NBC Universal which is owned by Comcast!)
But for those not lucky enough to smooth talk their way into getting a low cost contracted plan and you're paying the unfortunate full price now with less channels, I implore you to start looking at competitive alternatives. AT&T... which I am still not so warm to yet (in part because I know this is not the original AT&T from 15 years ago that bought TCI and sold away it's cable/broadband internet division to Comcast before being bought buy it's baby bell SBC which then renamed themselves at&t) , they are offering this Unlimited phone data plan if you subscribe to DirecTV, that's not a bad deal in my opinion if the price is right.
