Sweeping Channel Changes Pending

Postby jamoody » Fri Mar 17, 2017 7:42 am

Comcast has announced a complete shuffle of the channel numbers in my area starting 4/12 (ESPN 1605->1205, etc). Nearly every channel will be effected. Do I need to make anyone in SchedulesDirect aware of the pending changes for pre-planning or are the changes going to be automatic and seamless from SD perspective?

That's known as the Comcast Master Channel Lineup changes - you can google it.

The published date and then the actual transition date aren't always in sync. If on "transition day" we still have the old lineup, then please open a ticket at the Schedules Direct website -> Lineup Issue and let us know one or two of the delta updates and we can see if Comcast provided the new lineup to our upstream.

Only thing I would add to RobertK's response is while our data (I know SD-DD does, I assume SD-JSON does as well) has start/stop dates for channel lineups, most applications don't actually look at those fields, so it can cause some confusion.
