Great news . . . I hope that Buzzr shows up on Comcast soon so I can be less productive as well. Comcast might as well put Buzzr on channel 8, since KPNZ (estrella TV) was dropped back in February of this year. I think it's a waste of bandwidth to have nothing but a black screen with an explanation for estrella TV being pulled when I could be watching Bret Somers and Charles Nelson Riley banter back and forth, not to mention those classic black & white game shows from the 1950's and early 1960's. I enjoyed watching What's My Line and To Tell The Truth in the early morning hours before GSN dropped them in favor of paid programming overnight. Match Game is still on GSN from 9-10 AM weekdays here, but that's rarely a convenient time for me to watch unless I've got a day off work.
Update: I just read a post on one of the Comcast forums which stated that Buzzr will be added to their limited basic service on July 30th. Woo Hoo--now maybe I can find something other than infomercials for the latest fad diet pill and cutlery on the tube when I get home from work!
So Ch 106 for you is Movies! I'm guessing? On Comcast's public lineup it lists 106 as KUCW Country Network, but that moved from 30.2 to 30.3 some time back. They also still list both the SD (8) and HD (644) versions of KPNZ. I'd be very curious who screwed up and didn't elect to make KPNZ a must carry, but that's a different topic....
Yes, channel 106 is still set to Movies! in the Ogden area. I did a search for "KPNZ Comcast" and discovered that estrella TV was dropped by Comcast back in February not only in Salt Lake, bit in Houston (KZJL) and Denver (KETD) as well. The contract between Comcast and estrella TV expired on February 19th and the two did not come to terms on a new contract, so now channel 8 just carries a message advising viewers that they are working to resolve the situation "as soon as possible." Here we are in July and there's been no resolution between estrella and Comcast, so I'd like to know what Comcast's definition of ASAP is. Below is a link to the article that I read for anyone who's interested:
BTW, Buzzr is supposed to make its debut on Comcast channel 346 in Chicago and a few other cities the end of this month, so I'll have to keep an eye on the on-screen programming guide. Hope we get it in Salt Lake City as well!
