Comcast has replaced FMC (a commercial-free movie channel on my channel #607) with FXM which is laden with commercials. However, Comcast's website still shows #607 still is FMC. FMC was one of the few Comcast channels I enjoyed watching. Anyone else notice this arbitrary change by Comcast? Anyone else upset as I am over this change?

I might have your answer here - see link. It looks like Fox Movie Channel became FX Movie channel on Jan 1 2012. Would Love to have this channel on the Comcast of Garden State, NJ system.

By me, Fox Movies (now Fox FX Movies) is part of the Sports & Entertainment package. With TCM moving to the preferred tier in more and more areas, finding good movies is getting expen$ive. I'm not certain what type of movies FMC used to have, but it sounds like FXM is just an all-movie version of the FX channel, with mostly newer movies?

No kidding. And lately they seem to be running old TV series instead of old movies, along with multi-hour blocks of infomercials. Ugh. Something weird is going on at AMC . . .

Anyone remember what AMC originally stood for?
They are airing original programming now ("H E double-hockey sticks" on Wheels), and are basically turning into a generic channel. (Comcast's bad-word filter is out of control. I can't even use the name of a program aired on their system!!!!)

Reading this thread has answered a question I was going to ask - now I see why suddenly our FXM has commercials during movies. Wrote Comcast about it but they did not give me this answer - told me to contact FXM, which was difficult due to no "contact" info on their new website (old website no longer works) until I dug way into their pages to find a way to contact them. Obviously this will not be changed back to the old.
If we did not use TCM so much, we would drop the Sport/Ent channels package which is useless to us except for TCM. It is ridiculous we have to pay so much just to have TCM and now this commercial filled FXM - they hardly belong to a sports package! Glad to find others seeing the same issue and providing the answer to why - thanks. Lousy deal.....
