Update (10/3/23 PM)
One more update on Comcast channels for Wellesley local access. Things are now back as they used to be, with channels 8 and 9 providing access to local government meetings and programs.
Live streams of meetings and recordings, usually posted within 24 hours, are also available on Wellesley Media’s website.
Update (10/2/23 PM):
Comcast has fixed an issue that had left some Wellesley subscribers without access in recent days to local access programming, such as government meetings.
According to Wellesley Media’s James Joyce, “Comcast did a channel re-assignment Thursday … and channel 8 was supposed to be auto-tuning to channel 1071. It was auto-tuning to 1072 and saying the channel was not available. Comcast is going to fix this so it goes to 1071.”
However, those with older cable boxes will still be able to find Channel 8 for Wellesley content. Channel 9 should work for everyone, though newer boxes may bump subscribers to channel 1075.
- Comcast customers that have old analog cable boxes: Channels 8 and 9 as usual
- Comcast customers that have new digital set-top boxes: Channel 8 will auto bump to 1071 and channel 9 should work but may auto bump to 1075 in the future (Both 9 and 1075 work currently).
