Channel 1255

What happened to Channel 1255 in NYC, zip code 11416. It should be the Decades Channel according to the channel lineup online or Start Tv according to the programming notices. It does not show in the guide or when I enter the channel number. I do not need a tech visit. A tech already came to check about another missing channel. I have a good signal. Will someone in NYC please check this. I also rebooted the box which did not help. When I called Customer Service , I was told that 3 people have to call regarding a missing channel. Why can't a problem be checked right away.

Hello,

 

Decades is a sub-channel, since your signals are good and you have rebooted the box, it is either something on Spectrum's end.  Or the channel was removed due to a contract dispute.

 

For faster service, ask about this at Twitter.  Log in with your Twitter account, or get a Twitter account and follow this page: https://twitter.com/ask_spectrum?lang=en

 

Tweet to them that Decades TV is missing and ask them to contact the above zip code to see what is happening.  Say you have rebooted the box, already had a tech out, and that your signals are good.

 

What was the status of the other missing channel?

Same answer applies as last month.

 

CBS replaced Decades with Start TV on all of their owned and operated stations in the US.

 

According to their website, Decades is not currently broadcast in the New York Metro area.

We still have Decades in Wisconsin, cuz it's not CBS in our markets.  ABC dropped Movies! on Spectrum, but it is said to be coming back.  This TV is gone from our market.  We now have Start TV and The Justice Network.
