Or maybe Comcast just expects you to agree and submit to letting them tell you when to change your phone number so after you go through the same steps in changing all your contact numbers elsewhere in your life as you would if your wallet was stolen or lost that you'll just trust them with your wallet from now on and be less likely to leave when they increase your fees again and again while taking the channels away again and again. You know when people change all their contact numbers - it's when their wallet is stolen or when they move. Is that the chain of events Comcast is trying to set off in peoples heads by forcing them to have to change all their contact numbers? Is Comcast conditioning people to lose their wallet to them and move for them?? NOT HAPPENING HERE! Amazing job Comcast, you lost me as customer within the first three days because as of now, I will not resubscribe when the contract is up.

So, I got my new service installed on the 3rd and I know they asked if I wanted to keep the same number and I know I said that I did back when I ordered. To my surprise, the installer gave me a new phone number to use and said if I wanted to keep the same one that I would have to call the old provider and get it switched over. That is not good service, Comcast, and one feels like they are being messed with. So I go ahead and do that and am stuck keeping my old phone and paying for it while they switch it over, it seems scam-ish but it's two, and according to other complaints on this issue, many more companies it is effecting. HOWEVER, after going to turn in my old equipment yesterday I spoke tothe person at the counter and they said that they released it and it is Comcast that is having issues 'porting' numbers over lately. Why, Comcast, why would you do this if the money it costs your customers goes to your competitiors... AND THAT IS PRECISELY WHY I AM SUSPECTING FOUL PLAY. They're doing it for one of two reasons:
1. By providing for their competitors in their forcing of customers to pay them for a few more days of sevices they make their competitors dependant upon Comcast without the competitors knowing it's Comcast doing it.
2. Comcas t wants to be the one jolting the economy and wants it to be their hand forcing all this extra money loose by people keeping their old services longer than they would.
Either way is crooked and since I have never had this issue before and since getting it from a physical source that told me Comcast is the one being slow about it lately, and they relly shouldn't be since they have the better equipment and technology than most everyone else... I really have to suspect borderline criminal activity as the reason , this is not how I want to start up my Comcast contract.

I'm going to keep Comcast until it reduces to the 5 channels for $555 deal, then I might be able to see right between the eyes of the 'peer group' schemers playing landlords with the cable companies as their weapon of choice.
I'm not advising anyone to confront their neighboirs with something such as this, only an originator of such a theory such as myself should do that. Couldn't hurt for ya'll to start applying a little heat via a watchful eye and suspecting your neighbors a bit more instead of the execs who should be 'out of sight, and out of mind.'
Ask yourself 'who's really ripping you off?' People around you or executives in an office who are 100's upon 100's miles away and probably don't have any idea who you are or what your plight with their company is?
YOU can't confront your neighbor with this because that is what they want so they can send you on a 'wild goose chase' and pick your proverbial pocket while they hide behind you because they are cowards.

I was without CMT and POP long before that and... those notices can be faked as long as the public channel listing remains in accordance with what the corporate execs think the channel listing is.

So, I have the Digital Starter Package... I wake up this morning to see that I no longer have SpikeTV, I go to the channel listing and it clearly states I am supposed to have SpikeTV. It also states I am supposed to have POP. I then go to print a copy of the channel listing, dated 1/07/2016 and it also states I am supposed to have Spike, POP, and CMT. Of course, the phone rep goes on to say that the channels have all been moved to other packages(oh really?) as if they cannot be put in other packages and that the lists have yet to be upgraded. However, that list is dated 1/07/2016 and I have been without CMT and POP for as long as I can remember. Somehow, I legitimately suspect that they are able to mess with one's private channels and falsify the cable feeds BUT they cannot figure out how to change the publicly viewable channel listings without the coroporate execs at Comcast seeing it.
Why would they do this? Because the last thing the customer rep said after telling me the channel's had been moved is that i could upgrade for only $9.99 a month. It's a lie and they have everyone who's paying full price for a cable feed being under numerous watchful eyes and are illegally trying to squeeze more money from them. This likely includes non-Comcast employees as well as customer service reps of both phone and internet variety. The thieves aren't exactly Comcast, they're your neighbors and they're just hiding behind the good services the higher ups at Comcast have provided people.
Respond if you want and defend Comcast because you want no one else to think along these lines, or don't because you know that's what I am expecting... but I know this post made out to look to me as if it is available to the public really is not.
This incident occurred in Southeast Michigan and is based on services from the Woodhaven branch. The call to customer support was aimed at the 1-800- COMCAST phone number. You have my blessing in bringing it all down and firing everyone if need be to correct any corruption therein.
