Much of the East Coast has similar channels for CNN on Xfinity.

817 is the right place to go to watch CNN in the cities of DC, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Pittsburgh.

For whatever reason, lowered numbered channels are only available in Philadelphia on Channel 27 and in Pittsburgh on Channel 37.

You would think that in Washington DC they would need international news the most.
