I am throroughly disgusted with this sham of a company. It is time to look into a class-action lawsuit.
I switched to the "Digital Triple Play" package earlier this summer, after being promised by customer service reps that I would keep all of my current channels. I am now renting a modem from Comcast to support the increase in Internet speed, so my bill has also increased roughly 11-12 dollars per month. But I justified this because I thought I would I keep all my current tv channels, and get higher speed Internet, plus Netflix.
Anyway, I only realized I lost the ID channel after trying to DVR a show the other night. I was able to set a DVR recording, however I only realized I lost the channel when I actually went to it...after my recording never happened and I wasn't even warned about this. Weren't channels not included in a TV package highlited a different color in the guide in the past? It seems like Comcast has quietly removed these channels, without trying to cause a stir.
And if Comcast is "negotiating" a contract with ID Network, then why doesn't the screen message say so? I call BS...Comcast isn't negotiating anything.
It reminds me of the similar Comcast sham with TIVO within the last year, where DVR recording capaibilities were no longer available away from your home (supposedly Comcast is involved in a lawsuit with TIVO over the techonlogy that allows a user to dvr shows from an app while away from home).
I am so tired of losing the few programming channels I care about, and spending all of this money per month on plenty of garbage channels. I just want to watch (and dvr) the few shows I enjoy in a channel lineup of things I could care less about. To lose one of my favorite channels after being promised otherwise is not acceptable.
It shouldn't require this much hassle, money, and aggrevation in 2018 to watch TV!
