Comcast did update this list earlier today to remove the regional sports network MSG. SO it would appear that Nexstar and Comcast has not reached a deal yet.

There are a few options for what may happen here. Comcast and Nexstar may reach a new deal before the deadline or they could come to a short-term extension. The other option is Comcast could drop the channels listed above from their lineup as Comcast continue talks with Nexstar. For now, we will have to wait and see what happens.
