Xfinity Popular channel lineup FAQ

What channels are included in basic cable from Comcast/Xfinity?

We don’t recommend Xfinity’s basic cable packages. There’s just no good reason to pay monthly for your local channels and subchannels since you can get them with an easy-to-install over-the-air (OTA) antenna for a one-time payment of $20–$50.
