Wouldn't be surprised if it's back on Comcast shortly too seeing the Colorado Attorney General is looking at them over the regional sports fees now.
I'm giving Comcast a week before I switch.
@Grundeg How many deadlines do you give? It's people like you with no backbone is the reason Comcast can do what it likes with no fear of repercussion. A month ago you gave them a deadline, laughable. Direct TV made a deal, where's your cancellation notice? Just like everyone else on this thread all talk, no action

But during the term of the contract, specific channels may be added, changed, or removed for a variety of reasons, including the launch of popular new channels or changes in the popularity of existing channels. In this case, we removed Altitude from your programming package, because we no longer have permission from Altitude to carry it. While this change won’t cause prices to go down on existing packages, it will help reduce the speed at which they go up. The cost of programming generally continues to rise, which affects customers’ bills. In fact, our programming costs have more than doubled since 2006. We absorb a large portion of these cost increases and are doing our best to manage them while delivering additional value to you That's an interesting paragraph there. I'd like to point out there is a difference between dropping say MTV or The History Channel and Atlitude. Everyone's bill has an $8.00 charge specifically for "regional sports fee". There is no "music fee" or "comedy fee" or anything else of the sort. The only comparable channels are HBO/Showtime/Starz etc. If you discountinued half of those channels would you expect people to still pay the same amount? The result of your dispute is that we are now being charged that extra $8.00 a month for less than half of the regional sports coverage we had been getting in the Denver area. Sports are the driving factor behind having my TV package. If prices go up, so be it. Prices tend to do that over time. Giving us less programming and saving up for when your AT&T contract comes up isn't much of an answer. If Altitude isn't back on the air by when the puck drops for the first Avalance game I'll continue to be a cable customer until the moment Direct TV or DISH decide to work out a deal and not a day longer.

Yup know all that and all is fine with all my capable devices except for the Comcast xg1v4 4k dvrs. Comcast tier-3 and Netflix support have been no help on the matter. I suspect it is the version of Netflix that is loaded on my two 4K boxes from them. There is an indication the code is from 2015 and may explain why I can only get to “uhd ultra 4K” and have no HDR at all. Should not be hard and as I stated hdr works fine with OnDemand. I will just use my tv, Samsung uhd player or roku for Netflix. They work better and are more responsive anyhow though I like the voice search on x1.
tier 3 said the only thing that can be done is swap the boxes but I know that will change nothing as I have two now that are identical and rather new. Just hope an update comes out st some point to fix it.
Btw does anyone here have full hdr and Dolby vision working with the the 4K Comcast box on Netflix or are you all just surmising that the info posted out there is correct. I have read as many reports that it is. It implemented yet as I have that it is and I have not seen anything her or on avs fourum that state anyone doesn’t have this going. Uhd ultra 4K yes, just not any flavor of hdr.
you might check your TV owner's manual and see if you have HDCP 2.2 capability on your HDMI input jacks on your TV and also on your receiver if the X1 is plugged into the receiver.
You are making me laugh. Of course my TV is HDCP 2.2 capable and has all the latest stuff. Otherwise I would not be able to play UHD movies on both my Oppo 203 UHD player (in HDR and Dolby Vision) AND my Sammy 85k UHD player (only has HDR10 capbility) and of course I can play HDR AND DV content on the TV AND I am able to play Olympics OnDemand content on the X1 4k box in full HDR10 (DV is not supported on that content). It's just the Netflix app on the X1 4k box that will not do HDR. Furthermore I have been asking for some time and noone has been able to confirm for me that they can either but no reports to the contrary either (as in they can't but there are posts quite a few places that indicate the same results as I have). X1 box can see my capabilities its shown on the device settings/video dispaly settings I.E. it reports 4k UHD HDR in the circle on the left then a seperating line with 4K UHD System Cpability (and says "you are currently set to the higest possible resolution") then 4K UHD X1v4 then 4K UHD TV from an unknown company since it's plugeed into my Oppo 203 HDMI input so I can split the video to go to TV and the audio to go to AVR. The switch which is not listed is in between the DVR and the Oppo pesently but yesterday I plugged a cable in from the DVR directly to the TV HDCP2.2 compatable HDMI input and it says Vizio TV but same results, no HDR or DV offered up on Netflix when running the NF app on the X1 system. That is the same result I got day one when my first 4k box arrived (it is now upstairs in the bosses "Great Room). At that time I did not have the switch or the Oppo. I called and was told that HDR was not yet implimented despite the FAQs saying so and that DV was not supported on the box, yet...
Oh also I have the Video Output Resolution set to 16:9,2160p60 4K UHD (Best Avalable). If I dumb it down to 2160p30 4K UHD the Netflix app only serves up HD programming which is both odd and kinda expected however it should be able to do UHD 4k at 30fps but I bet they don't have that inplimented so it has to go down to the next level which is 1080p60 HD rather than UHD. This also tells me that it is reading my system capabilities but the app is messed up.
Oh and my AVR has no bearing on the video portion as I use it for audio only in this scenereo.
It should make you laugh, ask the expert if he has the same equipment as you do. If someone doesnt have the equipment, shouldnt be making a comment.

Prior to update 1.74 there were 4 possible options(default and options 1,2,3). At Update 1.74, 4 options became 3 options(default, and options 1&2). The previous options 2 and 3 were combined to create option 2 under 1.74.
1.75 comes along and the previous default and option 1 combine for Default/Off and Option 2 becomes On.
Andrew Andrew Andrew....that is clear as mud. Why in the world would they FINALLY code/program to give us 4 options in Labs and then do whatever it is you said when taken off Labs? I can't count the backward steps that represents. It took years to get any options at all. I beat several horses to death to get the text Labs options and now??????
If you're so perceptive, why did you wait to mention anything until updates were posted? Because you couldn't tell the difference 2 months after changes were made.

I cancelled services and ordered cheap Internet from another local provider + PlayStation vue. I will only save 40$ for the first month due to early termination fees, but after that I'll be saving roughly 100$ a month and actually enjoying my viewing experience by knowing that I'm saving so much rather than feeling obligated to watch tv due to extremely high xfinity bills. I've already done the same for my father and my friend is also awaiting installation of his new internet before cancelling himself. That's 3 customers gone. I'm sure I'm not alone, and I wasn't the only one tired of paying nearly 200$ a month for decent services, so yea, times are changing and it looks like you guys are simply falling behind. As a 5 year customer I highly recommend this new method to anyone who only needs basic cable (no not the useless channels) and Internet.
That's your own fault for investing in something that wasn't released yet, and you made the purchase going in that in a perfect world, the app was months away from being released.
How many have you complained to Roku (easy guess, none) about the late release? It IS a partnership, how do any of you know that Roku isn't dragging their feet?

As a consumer why would you or anybody else just rely on one source. The corporate Comcast website hasn't been updated since 4/20, the Roku website announcing the app hasn't been updated since 4/20. At least 2 employees havent stated a date yet. It's easy to point fingers but for every finger you point, you have three more pointing at you. When it's released the news will have it everywhere.

Well, I wondered how long it would be before X1 did something that would cause me to post on this forum again and sure enough, it did.
I just lost about 5 recording from my DVR that I didn't delete, including a rare Bonanza episode "Hoss and the Leprechauns" that I have saved for almost 2 years. Four letter explicatives hardly serve to express the the irritation I feel about this untrustworthy X1 system. I don't expect a recording to disappear unless I delete it myself. This is the second time something like this has happened. Recordings just gone the next day for no reason.
How do you expect anyone to take you seriously when you posted the exact opposite referring to the same "rare" episode that you were trying to delete? http://forums.xfinity.com/t5/X1/Upcoming-X1-Updates/m-p/2614191/highlight/true#M84776
