I don't even know what you are arguing at this point. These sentences make no sense.

Comcast didn't eliminate the channel, they moved it. All cable companies do that with all channels. They group like channels with other like channels.

I don't have Comcast. I don't have this channel. You might want to look into what other channels are near the placement of this channel to understand better the decision they made.

Secondly, you're presenting a dying argument as I outlined before. If you are actually concerned about people viewing this channel, you should be talking to Verizon. As far as I'm aware, they don't have this channel. So your argument about viewers means you're fighting for a channel on a specific number for a shrinking population.

If I were the city, the wisest move would be to create a YouTube channel to stream and upload content or some other similar medium as there are more and more cable cutters.


JC1 TV is on channel 37 in Verizon FiOS.

Thank you! I had no idea about this channel?s existence. I wonder how I ever lived...

Yvonne, a position on a number system is not really relevant today, and in this case is especially irrelevant since the [public access channel is now grouped with other news channels, so it's visible every time they tune to them.


Some people here have no understanding of what an asset is. Channel 1 - as in channel position - has zero value or utility. And repeating the same nonsensical argument does not make it more convincing.

There have been times during emergencies when people especially seniors turned to Channel 1 to find out important information. If you have no water, you find out where the city is distributing bottle water. I know people who had family members effected by Sandy, they learned from Channel 1 where the city was distributing food or other emergency lists. It was the city's brand, it had value and Comcast wanted it. You can belittle all want, Comcast with the consent of Fulop gave away the brand. If it wasn't valuable, then Comcast would not want it. After all, Fulop is spending $1.5 million to brand the city with the slogan, "Make it yours." Even Fulop knows the value of a brand.

It's actually a little odd that JC had a channel 1 at all, since OTA analog TV started at channel 2. If you'd like a very nerdy explanation as to why that was the case, this page is interesting: http://www.tech-notes.tv/History&Triv ... annel%20One/Channel_1.htm

Can you explain why Comcast wanted Channel 1 if it was not valuable?


Can you explain why anyone cares what channel it is on?
Wait, nevermind, how about you stop repeating the same thing over and over and over again, I dare you.

This is all so hilarious. I haven't had cable in over TEN YEARS because I do just fine watching tv shows on the internet or with my Netflix subscription, or a plain old antenna that picks up the regular broadcast networks (such is a benefit of living in the NYC area - admittedly, in the little upstate town where I was born and raised, you definitely need cable to even get NBC, CBS, ABC, Fox or PBS). I have never seen Channel 1 on my television, I have gone on the website on occasion and it works just fine.

I couldn't care less where it sits on the dial - 1, 96, 296, 999, whatever. It's not like it is all that up to date anyway. This website takes care of that - if it weren't for Yvonne's endless rants, I'd really be in the dark! No traditional broadcast medium can provide what she does on this website.

Fulop should have announce this decision. The contract was up 3 years ago but was not voted on by the previous council. I went to those meetings. Healy did not want this contract, the reason this was not voted on during his term. I know a lot about this contract, it is the reason I posted this and made the video. Healy also requested Comcast to rewire City Hall for meetings and he asked for a separate channel for the Board of Ed. We lost Channel 1 and we lost the re-wiring of City Hall, there is a new channel for the Board of Ed but that honors should go to Healy. Fulop gave away an asset Comcast wanted for a long time and he didn't make an announcement.

Since you're the valuation expert and not Comcast, how much is this asset worth?

I'll repeat this for you since you are a little slow: Comcast is leaving Jersey City.

The building they have here? Closing.
The service they provide here? Shrinking.

Approximately 75% of new residents in Jersey City are signing on with Verizon FiOS instead of Comcrap. When the contract with the city expires, their bid to keep the territory will be vastly lower.

If you really cared about this channel as a public service channel, you might consider lobbying Verizon to get it on their network since they will own more subscribers than Comcast in a very short period of time.

The channel is still available, they moved it.
Cable companies do that ALL THE TIME, no one gives a F#$K except you and your neighbors who saw muslims celebrating 9/11.

Stop blaming the city for everything.

Having been in a contract does not mean you own something. But of course we all know you are never wrong. Why are you comparing Comcast to what they have in Montclair? Montclair is a vastly different community from our own. What they have has no relevance here.

What is your point? Channel 1 whether you like it or not belongs to Comcast to do with as they please when the contract is up for renegotiation. What has raising their rates got to do with the price of apples? Comcast has been providing lousy service to Jersey City for years, so why didn't the magnificent Healy pick up the baton & demand better? And you whine because of a channel change?

The sky still is not falling & will not because of Comcast.

For more than 20 years, JC had Channel 1, why change? The lower the number the more valuable the channel, Comcast knows that. Besides, I am sure there are many people who do not know about the change. That is like trading a diamond for a CZ and saying there is no big deal.

is it really that hard to tune into 96 rather than 1?
And if tuning into channel 1 during an emergency is your go-to source of info, you're probably getting extremely outdated information.
