Be prepared for more changes. Comcast is trying align the channel maps 
across the US too be the same. Over the years as they bought up smaller 
headend's etc. all their channel maps were different. Now with Xfinity 
they want to make all the channels maps the same, so say discovery is on 
channel 16 here in Colorado it will also be on 16 in Florida, New York 
or California. Some areas have been small changes but some areas will 
have large changes. It takes time and they seem to do it batches like 10 
channels at a time. The did several changes here and it took about 4-5 
months to complete. We got lucky since they did most of it over the 
summer during rerun season.
