Thank you for the reply.  It is good to know that Comcast monitors its own forums.  As I stated, I am a prospective customer and do not have the service yet!   What package would someone need to have access to channel 3034 (it doesn't show up on the Comcast website listings) as I plan to call some friends and have them check it out!

Could someone explain to me why this channel (726 beIN) is broadcast in HD on Verizon but not on Comcast? You are making me pay top dollar per month and do not give me an HD channel in the resolution I should be able to watch it in. During viewing the channel will actually scroll "brought to you in HD". Really? They must mean as long as your not a Comcast customer. How are you DE-HDing an HD channel and why? I should not have to look for new providers due to these types of shannanigans. Please explain yourselves.

Apologies. We don't have any additional news to announce about availability of these channels in HD in additional areas.

 

beIN Sports (Spanish) is currently available on channel 583 and beIN Sports (English) is available on channel 726 in your area.

 

You can also watch beIN Sports live coverage online at the link below:

http://xfinitytv.comcast.net/watch-live-tv?cid=customer

 

or via the Xfinity TV GO app, details here:  http://xfinitytv.comcast.net/apps?cid=customer

 

The live steams of beIN do look very good on a tablet via the app and also online.

simply inexcusable......the fact that Comcast does not have BeIN Sport or FS2 in HD is nonsensical.  We may never know the true reason but the odds of ever seeing this change is slim.

 

That Comcast would recommond you watch online is laughable.  Here's a better answer.....Switch provider to Sony Vue, etc!!!

You are right agree 100%. We been very patient for almost 4 years since Bein came in the air. In my area own tv was added in HD back in December. If they would use common sense they should have added a channel in HD that have higher ratings first. I don't believe OWN tv or univision deportes that they provided in HD last year have higher ratings than bein sports + many games on univision deportes are also on unimas tv or univison which are in HD every where I believe. But there is no doubt in my mind that bein HD will be on comcast eventully. I have notice one thing about comcast that it takes awhile for them to add new channels or new HD. But I'm really suprised that west coast areas got bein espaniol HD last year. Why here in east so late. That just doesn't make sense.

This means that your company probably don't care much and it will take forever to have Bein in HD. About your suggestion watching Bein on line, it is true that the quality is much better  (it is not difficult...) but it is also true that other providers give you the ability to connect with Bein Connect and this will let you to watch the game you are interested even if it is not broadcasted live. Finally, if I pay a lot of money to watch TV I want to be able to watch TV, otherwise I will not subscribe.

Look, I'd like to be able to watch beinSports in HD, y'know, on my TV.  Which, I could do, if you would unlock whatever the block is that prevents streaming the xfinity app for beinSports on my TV.  For example, Sunday Ticket for the NFL doesn't prevent that.  Neither do plenty of other "TV" apps -- I know CBS's works as well.  It's infuriating that the HD channel isn't in the regular TV lineup literally years after getting the channel, but why are you blocking allowing the app from streaming from my iPad via HDMI cable on my tv.

So, I had to watch MotoGP this past weekend in Spanish if I wanted to watch in HD...???  Why is this happening?  The English BEIN sports channel here in Sacramento is in SD while the HD channel is in Spanish.  C'mon Comcast/Xfinity...this is ridiculous.  As a triple play customer I can tell you right now if this is not corrected by the time my contract is up, I will be switching to a different service.

Thankfully we now have Beinsport in HD here in the Seattle area on channel 723.  Unfortunately the Comcast programming doesnt coincide with the schedule posted on the Beinsport web page. Events like MotoGp, World Super Bike and USA Men's soccer, listed as being shown live on the Beinsport web page, are either shown later in the week taped delayed or not shown at all (as was the case for the USA vs Guatemala World Cup qualifer last night).  The only way to find these events is to scroll thru the on screen menu and hope to stumble across them.  Hey Comcast - there must be a better way.  Why aren't the Moto GP, World SuperBike and USA Men's soccer being shown live here in the Seattle area?

Okay, after my last post I did some more research into the Beinsports channel. It's not a Comcast issue. My apologies. It appears that they offer 7 different channels of programming under the Beinsports name: Beinsports, Beinsports Spanish Language, and then Beinsports 2,3,4,5 and 6. Here in Seattle we get the the Spanish language version on channel 723 in HD. Check your local listings as programming will vary depending on what version of Beinsports you have.

BeIN Sports often offers an English-language audio option via the SAP (Secondary Audio Program) on their Spanish-language channel.  

 

To change the language, select the channel you want to change the language, then press the Menu button on the silver Comcast remote control. Go to Setup and then Audio Setup and then change the audio track to English.

In your area, beIN Sports (English) is offered on channel 429. beIN Sports (Spanish) is offered on channel 651 and in also available in HD on channel 677. 

 

As mentioned above, beIN Sports often offers an English-language audio option via the SAP (Secondary Audio Program) on their Spanish-language channel. To change the language, select the channel you want to change the language, then press the Menu button on the silver Comcast remote control. Go to Setup and then Audio Setup and then change the audio track to English.

 

For customers on our X1 platform, this link below may assist. http://customer.xfinity.com/help-and-support/cable-tv/x1-audio-output/

 

beIN Sports initially wanted wider distribution of their Spanish-language channel, so that is how they chose to initially use their channel allotment.

 

The Comcast programming teams and local management teams constantly evaluate programming choices and make decisions based on customer interests, costs, channel bandwidth management and contractual obligations. There are additional capital costs incurred (equipment and such) as well as any opportunity costs (what else could that bandwidth/channel space be used for) when adding new channels, even if an HD addition of an existing SD channel.   


Situations may change based on customer demand, channel bandwidth opportunities, business opportunities, costs and contractual obligations. Thanks for your feedback.

All wonderful on the language selection.  None of which helps any of us in DC, one of the largest soccer markets in the US, which still doesn't have an beIN channel in HD.  Frankly, it could be in Latvian and I'd rather watch it in HD then in English in unviewable 480i fuzz-o-vision.  Whenever I move out of my apartment, it will be on to DirectTV.

I enjoy the Xfinity X1 platform, and have patiently waiting for BeInSport to be available in HD for nearly 4 years.

 

I get it, Comcast owns NBC Sports, and heavily push the EPL.  Please do know that 2 of the biggest teams of the biggest sport on Earth plain in Spain's La Liga.  There's also Serie A, Bundesliga, and high level national matches.

 

I want, need this channel in HD.  It's almost silly to think in 2016 we are pleading for sports channels in HD.  AT&T and Direct TV both have it in my area.  I like X1, but 4 years waiting with no real prospects of adding this channel in HD, has me shopping around.  Please provide update.

With all due respect, your response to me is verbatim to your response to a similar question a number of months ago. I am fortunate in that the HD soccer programming on the Spanish HD channel is in English. My hope was to watch the English programming, such as The Locker Room with Ray Hudson and his cohorts, in English HD. I guess I need to be patient for maybe another year, or more. Sheesh!

Hey Comcast - I'm watching the MotoGp race here in Seattle on channel 723.  Great HD picture but the commentary is in Spanish?!  Yes - I've tried to activate the SAP option mentioned several times by Comcast in this thread but it doesn't work.  Why no English commentary?!

By what you're saying, their channel allotment appears to be two channels of SD content and one channel of HD content. And, beIN chose to put the Spanish-language channel on HD for better distribution. Is this a fair interpretation, and, if not, please clarify.

 

None of this addresses the issue of not being able to get beIN Connect.

 

And, why would Comcast/Xfinity make a deal with a content provider (2 SD and 1HD channels) that would make Xfinity/Comcast look like a such a terrible cable provider?

NEWS FLASH: Comcast does not care what you think and what you want. As long as you keep giving them your money, they will never care. They have no reason to care.

Almost 2 years ago, I received an email from BeIN Sports regarding Comcast. The email stated that BeIN Sports' fee is one set fee, because BeIN only offers itself as an HD channel, it is the cable company that decides where to place a channel. The sad thing is that we pay extra to have the "special" HD boxes & we also pay extra for a Sports Package to have BeIN. 

What Comcast should do is to place BeIN Sports & BeIN Sports en Espanol in HD in the 1600's with Outdoor Channel HD, Sportsman Channel HD & Univision HD. Hopefully Comcast will fix this issue soon, this has gone on long enough.

Thanks for Reading!!!

I guess is a good thing I'm living on this Comcast-exclusive building for only 5 months. I just moved from NYC, where I thought time warner had a bad reputation. At least there I did not have to pay $10 extra for HD channels (they all were!) and I cannot understand how you offer top sports channels as the bein sports line up on HD in the Boston are. I'm pretty sure they like to watch golf and football here, but it just makes you look as such a poor provider. It's 2016!!! absolutely lost a costumer here

Hello - It is very frustrating that Comcast offers so few channels in HD. In particular, you do not offer BeIn sports in HD. It is only available in Standard. This channel shows International Soccer, MotoGP motorcycle racing, WSK motorcycle racing, and a number of other great sports. These sports do not look good in standard definition. They need to be in HD to get the full experience. Will you be adding this channel in HD soon? Thanks for your time.

Still not in HD? Really?! Now Moto GP is on and only in SD. This remains unacceptable!

Hello All -- We do offer BEIN Sports in HD in some areas. We are continuing to evaluate expansion of this channel to all other areas. We appreciate your patience while we do this.

Yeah, I know.  I live in Washington DC, which is usually viewed among the top 3 viewing markets for soccer in the US.  We.  Still.  Don't.  Have.  Any.  BeIN Channel.  in HD.  So great job, Comcast "evaluating".  Love the HD home shopping channel though.  Glad I'm paying for that.
