I was waiting for you to explain what happened on Jett...
I'm having a dispute with Comcast right now. Comcast thinks that if a
subscriber accepts an offer for a package for a specific length of time,
Comcast has the right to change the stations included in the package
before the period expires.
My position is that if two parties enter into a contract, both parties
must enter the contract intending to honor the contract's terms,
otherwise there was no contract in the first place.
Comcast yanked all but three Cinemax channels: Cinemax East (SD),
Cinemax East (HD), and Cinemax West (SD). The west coast feed has the
same programming as the east coast feed, delayed three hours. All the
"multiplexed" channels were eliminated, although now that I look,
Comcast wasn't offering all of them. There's More Max, Action Max (which
Comcast used to offer), Thriller Max, 5Star Max, Moviemax, and Outermax.
There was also a Spanish-language version of the main channel. I don't
understand why HBO and Cinemax offer a Spanish-language channel, given
that there's an alternative Spanish-language audio track. It seems like
a waste of satellite bandwidth.
Comcast "replaced" it with a different premium service Hitz which isn't
including in the package, but it's not offered as a satellite channel.
The Comcast channel guide does cute things like pretending On Demand is
a satellite channel with various numbers. If selected, one is merely in
the On Demand menu at a different place.
I haven't bothered to look up Hitz; it may not be a satellite channel at
all, just a streaming service.
Then, a couple of weeks ago, Comcast simply removed the three remaining
Cinemax channels from my channel lineup, so I haven't been watching Jett.

Would you please go into AVG settings and turn off the spammed ad that
gets appended to every email message and Usenet article you send? As AVG
has always thought a Usenet article was an email message, given that the
two are completely different, it is software that is beyond useless.
Literally, the AVG ad is spam. It's the identical text appended to every
message and article you send. That is the definition of spam.
