    Comcast Xfinity needs to sign on with Marquee Network ASAP. I don’t want to have to change cable provider. This simply makes NO SENSE.

    We jumped the cable tv ship with Comcast when we heard this was going down. Still have their internet….but went to Hulu Live TV which does carry the Marquee Channel. We did purchase our own router as well, so saving $80 per month to boot. Hulu Live TV does carry some of our local channels, like 2, 5 & 7 for news. Also get 50 hours of cloud dvr to boot.

    If you are a T-Mobile customer, today, 7/21/20, you can get the MLB.tv for a one year subscrip for free with their Two for Tuesday app, so just another way to watch the games.

    There are options, you just have to do a little research.

    Comcast has had an extra 3 months to get this settled. What is their problem. Cub fans on Comcast are missing out on watching their boys in blue starting tonight. Come on Comcast, get this settled ASAP, please.
