Same here. It's also a 'dead' channel with no signal. Mine showed it was on 633MHz, which I think is actually one of the OnDemand frequencies. Maybe it's just a temporary glitch or a test.

It also means the box now requires 4-digit channel entry (leading 0's or hit OK/Select).

The online channel guide lists 1006 as the XFINITY channel. No program or channel info otherwise.

Comcast/The Weather Channel in HD has finally reinstated Local info, including Local on the 8's here in Elgin IL.

We had it about a year ago for a few weeks, and it vanished. I just noticed it's back on today.
About time.

Look up about 3 messages. I had posted this:
Effective 7/22/2014, Trinity Broadcasting Network will be
available on channel 380.

This is mainly Comcast trying to move SD channels out of that area.

Got several e-mails and a cable box message that SEC Network is coming on August 14. Just what we need, a big price increase to cover yet another sports network.

I got several emails (one for each address), and now TWO box messages about SEC, but none gave the channel numbers.

Nice to hear about UToo HD being added. I guess that's why Trinity was moved.

It depends on your area. Here in Schaumburg, it's working. Both feeds have occasionally stopped working, but not always together. I thought the updated SD was just downconverted from the HD, but they are still separate. For much of the past week, the SD feed here in Schaumburg was just national, whereas the HD feed was working. Even more, the SD feed says Rolling Meadows, but the HD says Schaumburg.

Do you have info on Comcast ? Have you heard anything as to when cloud service and live streaming will get down to Peoria/Galesburg/Springfield area ?

Is anyone seeing audio and video dropouts every few seconds tonight on CSN 200?

This has happened infrequently in the past during Sox games, but tonight it has affected other programs as well as commercials. My other channels are OK.

I'm curious if it's just my area (near north), or my building, or everywhere.

Not much on this months bill:

Effective 10/15/2014, Comcast Info Channel HD will move from
channel 285 to channel 201 and be renamed Comcast
SportsNet Chicago Plus HD.

Willow Plus has now been added to select Desi Packages at no
additional cost. Continue to enjoy your favorite Hindi shows and
now have access to the biggest live cricket matches on Willow
Plus, including the Indian Premiere League and India's Tour of
England. Call 1-800-XFINITY to find out more today.

I guess Augusts SEC-HD add was our only HD addition crumb.
