Televisions still do not work.
Only CNN, no other channels.
The screen is either all jarbled or get a msg that says "Sorry, we are having trouble . . . "
I think I need a technician to come out to the house and see about this.
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 4 months ago

Sorry to hear that, it is definitely the cable box internal issue and it need to call your cable company to either reset the cable box or replace it to resolve the problem.

Thanks

how to call Comcast Xfinitity???
There is no telephone number on the bill.
This is particularly annoying, as I knew in the first place I needed to talk to them,
but they only offer the .com customer support and that is how I came to your site and have to pay a fee.
