anybody know why channel 11 on comcast was removed? I forget the name, but its gone now and try to get an answer from comcast is, as usual, a joke.
Comcast like many entertainment providers (AT&T, DISH Network, Direct TV, U-Verse etc..) from time to time have their contracts with various providers terminate and be up for renewal and then it's a tug a war between the entertainment cable provider and the channel supplier. This page (linked to) is the Comcast Contract Renewal page that shows what channels are about to expire and in need of renewal. As for the Florence, Alabama Comcast channel lineup ... no channel 11 or 12 Click on that link. Also some cable and entertainment providers move channels around but usually put a disclaimer on the old channel pointing to the new channel but then that might be too customer friendly a practice for Comcast.
I had Comcast and Direct TV as well as AT&T U-Verse but I now have, and totally enjoy better, Dish Network. As for now I don't see me leaving Dish even after the contract is up. I actually paid AT&T/Direct-TV a fee to leave early and it's the best move I ever made as there is no comparison between Dish and Direct-TV, Dish is by far and away better in features and price and unlike Direct TV & AT&T Dish's price remains constant and what they tell you it will be. AT&T/Direct-TV totally lies to you and their employees don't know what one hand tells the other. I'll never go back to AT&T for anything, at least unless I have to for lack of any other service. Right now though DISH is in talks to renew Cinemax and as of now neither Dish Network nor Cinemax is moving on Price. Dish on what they will pay and Cinemax on what they want to charge. Back to your question ...
Another linked page I followed had a list of Comcast/Xfinity channels and it did have a Channel 11 & 12 and I'll post that below to see if it jogs a memory.

Thank y0u for the info and wish I'da looked into Dish more as I should have learned my lesson from my past experience with X. I did find out that channel 11 is now 206 on my pkg. I watched Seinfeld every night from 6-7 up until last week and it said no channel 11 this week. i scrolled around pkg and found it on 206.
I'm a year in on X and have been contemplating biting the bullet and buying out of my boneheaded mistake, then look again into Dish's program services and possibly make the move.
I wonder if Comcast / Xifinty might have moved My Network TV from 11 to 206 in order to launch a new channel on 11 sometime soon? I do know AT&T U Verse in Florence, AL carries Athens, AL's WTZT (which is Cozi TV) on channel 11. Might Comcast / Xfinity be getting ready to add WTZT?
Looks like chnl 206 is the new chnl 11. Competition is needed folks!
