Macomb County Chief Circuit Judge David Viviano ruled Comcast CANNOT move the local access channels up to the pay channel tier of channels. Comcast wanted to move Ann Arbor's Community Television Network channels 16, 17, 18, 19 up to channels 911, 916, 902, and 912 where in essence nobody would ever see them.
To even see these channels, customers with basic cable service would have to buy or lease a digital converter box or upgrade to digital service. And who provides that? Oh, yeah right, Comcast.
Comcast had no immediate comment.
