Every month, Comcast pays programmers like networks, local TV station owners and others for the ability to bring their programming to you. That’s right, Comcast pays the programmers – not the other way around. When those contracts near an end, we evaluate the terms to ensure we're delivering our customers the best entertainment at the best value. Sometimes that may result in the content no longer being available to our customers.
All TV providers like Comcast go through contract negotiations with programmers like networks, local TV station owners and others. We’re committed to bringing you the news, sports and entertainment you love at a great value. If a programmer makes it impossible for us to maintain this commitment, it can force Comcast to remove its channels from your lineup as a last resort. Unfortunately, no matter who you choose for your provider, there is a risk that you may lose access to channels that you’ve come to enjoy. We do everything we can to prevent this from happening and have reached hundreds of agreements without interruption.
