State Cable Advisory representation question – An individual named John Weiss called Peaches
who wants to go to the State Advisory meetings, but does not want to come to CTAC meetings.
We all agree that (such a person) a state rep must come from CTAC membership.
Letter from Comcast customer named Diane V. of Hamden, concerned with news release that
Comcast will move the Turner Classic Movie (TCM) channel from all existing packages into the
Sports Package. This change will be effective as of October 11, 2019.
This is troubling news that the Advisory all agree must be confirmed and contested. Council members agree
that “we are tired of Comcast decreasing channel offerings while not lowering rates & charges. TCM is especially popular among older adults. We expect customers will push back on this change.
Peaches notes that TCM is available online at WatchTCM.com
