    Pittsburgh-area Comcast has moved MSNBC off of basic cable
    It has moved from channel 31 to channel 183. No other channel in basic cable has moved.


    The tinfoil-hat person inside me would say that this is not a coincidence.


    I can now only get MSNBC if I have the digital box, and can NOT get it on TVs that don't have the box.


    No other channel in the lineup was moved


    MSNBC was replaced by the Golf Channel. There is no way that the Golf Channel was generating more interest and viewers than MSNBC.


    Something's fishy.
    Thanks to SarasotaRepub for your help! :D

    ComCast is a very sleezy outfit and deserves to 'go down the tube' !

    The cable system that I have does not even offer MSNBC. Not that it affects anyone in our home.

    I don't get MSNBC on my cable system either. My Mom is out in the country and has a satellite. She gets it but never watches it.
    This is bigger than presidential politics. This is a battle for America.

    Comcast moved the country music channels from basic to digital (my parents gripped unceasingly about that). I wonder what conspiracy DU can make up over that?

    So I turn on the TV to watch Olbermann and the screen is blank
    I then go to comcast linup and the channel has been removed. I have a digital TV. I put that question on google and saw some alarming news; That comcast may be dropping MSNBC from their lineup. Does anyone have any further news on this alarming story?

    5. What?! This is a major cable network. The Bushites have to be behind this.

    We are not going to make it to January 20.

    Time is running out on us.

    13. I sent an email to Comcast expressing my opinion that this was political

    because neither FOX nor CNN got moved to the upper tier. I received a phone call back. The woman said they are receiving many complaints and she would forward mine. She said there was a possibility MSNBC would be moved back. I told her that Comcast was the topic of discussion at a "Democratic online discussion group with more than 100,000 registered users, and that most felt there was a political motivation for the switch and many were strongly considering switching to AT&T or Dish Network. I said I would be doing the same if they did not restore MSNBC soon.

    If you haven't called or written to complain, I urge you to do so. Link for Comcast feedback here:

    hmm, think I may contact them too.

    Damn, we might have to move to Comcast. I should call them and let them know that we are currently using a competitor, and if they keep MSNBC off the lineup, we would be interested in switching.
