TV channel Starz was removed from broadcaster Comcast’s packages sparking a series of upset posts from 50 Cent.
‘Power’ has become one of the most talked about TV shows in recent years, but just two weeks before the final episode of the last ever season, Starz – the channel on which it’s broadcast – has been dropped.
The move saw rapper and show creator 50 Cent claim that this week’s penultimate epsiode wouldn’t air and that he “can’t sleep” because of the tragic news.
Writing on Instagram in one of many posts, 50 Cent said, “I cant even sleep. ️POWER is not airing Comcast is dropping STARZ, call 888-90-STARZ Tell them to keep STARZ’.
Videos from stars including Michael Rainey Jr, who plays Tariq St. Patrick and Larenz Tate who plays councilman Rashad Tate called for fans to contact Comcast to make sure ‘Power’ wasn’t dropped before the final episode.
In another post, 50 Cent went on to say, “I don’t understand why @Comcast is working against me. I mean POWER is #1 let me be great.”
Many people watch stream ‘Power’ using Netflix shortly after it airs on Starz and it’s unclear as to whether the dispute between Comcast and Starz will result in ‘Power’ being cancelled across all streaming platforms.
A website called keepstarz.com has been set up in order to try and use consumer power to help save the channel.
