Re: International Package Update
Dear Sir or Madam:

We are committed to keeping you and our customers informed of Xfinity TV changes. As we had informed you in December, Star India, the owner of Indian television channels, announced that it would no longer be offering its programming to Comcast and other video programming distributors in the United States effective January 5, 2019. As a result, Comcast no longer has the rights to carry the Star networks which has resulted in changes to our International Hindi selections as provided below.

The following International services and/or packages are no longer available:

  • Star India Gold
  • Star Bhart (One)
  • Star Bhart (Star One)
  • Star India News
  • Star India Plus
  • Vijay
  • Tamil: Vijay
  • Desi 3 Pack: Zee, Star India Plus and Xfinity TV Latino
  • Desi 4 Star Pack: Star India Plus, Star Bharat (Life OK), ABP News, Star India Gold

The following Hindi packages included the Star channels that we no longer have the rights to carry. As a result, we have removed the Star channels and adjusted the package name and price as follows:
