Default No PBS Channels on Comcast

We have lost all the PBS channels on on our Comcast feed. This happens on all four of our boxes. Spent an hour with tech support troubleshooting so now a tech is coming out on Friday. Anyone else having this problem?

The loss of PBS signals is not just you. As above noted the station itself is out of service. What is really shocking is that Comcast apparently does not know it and is wasting your time and the service tech by coming to your house.

Tech was here at 10:00 to tell me just what has been posted.
Waste of time for a lot of people.

Thanks. That time on the phone with Comcast is an hour of my life I’ll never get back. Ridiculous they didn’t know the answer since the first agent I talked to said I wasn’t the first to call about the problem this week.

You will see a hefty charge on your next Comcast bill for that service call too

I spent over 30 minutes on the phone with a DirecTV rep who checked "her resources" and couldn't tell me a reason, or when it would be remedied.

And they still have all the programs listed in their guide. They should at least take those off and say 'off the air.'

Less than 30 seconds online and found the reason.
