    Is anybody experiencing channels disappearing all of a sudden from their lineups?

    I just found out that some channels got dropped where we are and do not know what is even going on here.

    I actually do have the reason why, and will post later about it.

    Wrecktum does this. No notices. One day you get a channel, the next you don't. Oh...wait - it's in a different tier, but it'll cost you to get it back.

    Here’s what XFINITY had to say:

    The issue is from the broadcasters end.

    We are trying to get those channels back, but as of now the following list of channels are not available.

    Channels Lost: Investigation Discovery, Oxygen, Tru TV, UP, WE, WGN (varies by lineup) signature Triple Play

    Unknown when the channels will be back, but an email will be sent to all customers once the channels are live.

    But here’s the reason why they are dropped.

    Our contract with broadcaster has ended. We are in the middle of creating new contract, that's why.

    They got dropped somewhere around maybe late November.

    You're being ridiculous - Comcast has lots of bills to pay - acquisitions and all - just pay your ever-rising cable bill - and be still!!!

    I’m not being ridiculous at all, because other people are having the same issue according to the XFINITY forums.

    Hmmm...well, maybe I was being hasty - but Comcast has a lot of expenses and paying for all them cost a lot of $$$

    Oh, and BTW - What ever happened to the Weather Channel and 'Highway To Hell' anyway.

    I mean(t) 'Highway Thru Hell'...

    As I only occasionally look in on WKRP on METV, I had no idea. My sympathies for your loss.

    What Comcast is really saying is we don't want to pay what those channels are asking in their contract. So you the viewer have to suffer.

    Okay. So we have Tru TV and Oxygen.

    The channels that were dropped were WE, UP, WGN, and Investigation Discovery.

    Comcast feeling the squeeze. GOOD. Way overpriced to begin with.
