    We (on Tivo) have been only getting 1 channel. We now get all 4, but it seems only in standard def for 3. The main channel is in HD

    I get the other channels on 324,325,328. They are also on 1873,1874 and 1875 (which would be HD), but these must be IP because nothing comes in on Tivo, but they do on the Roku app. If someone has a Comcast Box can you test these channels?

    Depending on your area these channels may be different. Just look for the former Starz channels.

    If you had Starz on a Preferred plan included you now have Epix.

    The Tivo guide still thinks these channels are Starz. I did fill out a Tivo lineup issue form.

    Also, the main EPIX channel has moved from 1790 to 1871. Funnily though I am still getting the main STARZ HD channel. Haven't checked the other STARZ channels.

    No guide data yet for 1871 on my Tivos, but the duplicated channel 467 has guide data for Epic HD. Comcast saw it in their kind hearts to extend the Starz deadline until 12/31 then cut it out of the package. I subscribed to Starz on Amazon for 99 cents for 3 months to finish out the Dublin Murders. I might keep it enabled after that for Power & Outlander.

    We also have ScreenPix now in SD only on 520 (Standard), 521 (Action), 523 (Westerns) and 527 (Voices). No TiVo guide data yet for these. Channel #'s are for SF Bay Area Comcast.

    Also the Epix app will work choosing Xbox at activation. Tivo is not a choice.

    They are still dropping Starz from some/most packages but not until February.

    Where did you see that published? (See also below.)


    I have a digital preferred bundle that includes Starz and am still getting Epix as well as Starz and Starz Encore--both linear channels and VOD.

    Here is an excerpt from a Comcast internal communication today:

    We’ve announced a long-term agreement with Lionsgate that spans across Comcast and NBCUniversal and continues carriage of the STARZ networks for Xfinity TV customers.


    Our new agreement ensures that STARZ flagship premium channel, as well as the STARZ ENCORE suite of channels -- including Encore, Encore Westerns, Encore Black, and Encore Action -- and related video on demand content will continue to be available to Xfinity customers with expanded distribution on Xfinity Flex and a path for an orderly transition to an à la carte business.


    Additionally, we also announced that NBCUniversal will license content from Lionsgate for Peacock, our streaming service launching in April 2020. Peacock will have access to hundreds of feature films and shows from the Lionsgate catalog to stream alongside the previously announced slate of original series, TV shows, and films from Universal and other major studios. NBCUniversal will also license content to STARZ to be featured in the U.S. and on its international streaming service, STARZPLAY, now available in 49 countries worldwide.

    Ok..I do not subscribe to any movie channels. I do get the Starz/encore movie channels. Will I now get Epix? I may not have been clear my first post.

    Both my TE3 and TE4 Roamio boxes have the Epix app. It seems to function.

    Are you not getting the Epix linear channels as well? If not, what is your Comcast subscription level and how are you receiving Starz?

    The main Starz channel and Starz on demand were never part of what was leaving.

    For me the Epix channels are the same channel numbers the Starz channels were but the guide still shows them as Starz channels.

    I told Tivo about this and have not heard back. Comcast is a big operation, I would think such a change would catch Tivo's attention.

    Are you getting Epix only in SD except the main channel which is HD? I am. Starz is only on 1 channel now on Tivo also.

    Yes but they are listed SD in the Comcast channel lineup.

    Some of the Starz Encore channels are now back where they were for me.

    Comcast thinks I'm thrilled that they added EPIX and ScreenPix to my account, but I don't want them. I only want TCM, which they keep taking away, even after I signed up for a 2-yr contract. I also don't want Netflix (has anyone read their privacy policy and what they "can do" with your private info??). Wish we had more cable choices in my county.
