I'm in Lisle - 60532.  Comcast guys says our service is provisioned out of

There's probably 8-9 channels affected, none of which I really cared
The ones I can find now as not available in spite of what the Comcast
channel lineup web applet says are:
121 DIY
124 Fine Living
132 Nick2
143 LOGO

I know there are some more, generally higher channels from here.

And, again, it's not the channels themselves, its the continued force-able
push into ever more expensive packages to maintain the same channel
