BEIN Sport in HD

The Duke is right. Back in 2012 when BeIN won the broadcast rights for La Liga, Ligue1 and Serie A the soccer community bombarded Comcast with requests for BeIN to be added to their channel lineup. There were two primary threads related to that requests and each had over six thousand requests. If you love soccer and want to see the best playing in HD then you have to let Comcast know, if if it's just something short and sweet like, "Please carry BeIN in HD."

Spanish League started!! I'm ready! I have my sport package, my HD comcast box, my HD Samsung Tv..... but wait it's that Fc barcelona or toronto fc? I can't tell because it looks so bad!!

 

So let's get out the macbook air and the hdmi adapter open safari go to xfinity.tv live streaming click on Bein Sports on 720p put my tv on hdmi 2 feed turn off my cable box... Well it does look a little better.. but wait the feed just froze.. oh now it's back ... oh wait it pixelating.. oh there were go again.. 

 

Should I cancel my comcast tv service and just pay for the Dish app?

Another year has passed and still no HD channel for BeIN sport? What's going on?

La Liga kicked off this past weekend and my HD TV was useless as was forced to watch Lionel Messi and Co. in olow res and out of focus.

Comcast...there have meen many many posts about this and no replies or action.

You are on the verge of losing yet another customer if you don't address this glaring ommission.

Get BEIN sport in HD.

ASAP.

Thank you.

Called regarding the BeIN HD, lack of premium movie channels in HD and the absence of FSN2 from the channel lineup and received the same answer that I have received in the past.. "We can't have all channels in HD". After pointing that all these channels are available on verizon and dish.. I was given the same company line.. It's pretty annoying that's pay way too much for my services and get less than what Verizon/dish customers get.. TWC had so many more HD channels when I lived in Cincinnati.

I agree with the lack of HD programming. At my home down south where I have TWC I have 12 HBO and 23 MAX channels, with only a couple in SD all others HD. And with the SD service, the signal quality is almost equal to that of HD - its that good.

Had DireccTV, which provided bein sport in HD.  Switched to Comcast with the understanding the bein sport was offered.  Didn't realize till after the swtich that the channel was not in HD.  That was a trememendous disappointment.  At this point i won't switch to Verizon, which does carry the channel in HD, but i'll definitely conisder the change when my contract is up, unless Comcast adds BeinSport in HD.  They have about a year to improve.

Yes, it is absolutely unacceptable that we don't get this channel in HD. And to make it worse, Comcast doesn't provide tge Bein Connect service to be able to stream live from mobile devices (ATT Uverse, DirectTV, COX, Time Warner Cable, Dish, etc all provide it).
If Comcast doesn't listen to their customers then they will lose them. I'm just about ready to switch, given my bill and the lack of competitive programming and services.

I just got Comcase service in Seattle with the Sport Package. I was shocked to see that Comcase doesn't have BeIN sport in English, they only provide it in Spanish. I wasn't able to watch my favourite team (AC Milan) important game against Juventus in the Italian Seria A league (happening now).The Spanish Channel is broadcasting some weak game in the Spanish league becasuse BeIN sport in English is broadcasting AC Milan game.

 

Also, the channel that they offer is neither 720p nor 1080 (not HD for sure).

I am starting to miss my previose service with At&t Uverse.

 

BeIN Sport is now number 1 sport channel for soccer fans. It is very ignorant of Comact to not conisder this segment of customers.

 

It might be a matter of time before I cancel my service and switch to other company.

I've been a comcast customer for 10 years, my family since they opened in my area 20 yrs ago under a different name. We will both be changing our services because of this problem and it's a shame comcast can't keep their customers happy. One problem after another with them.

Folks, here's the real deal. BeIn Sport offers HD programming to all cable providers at no extra charge-http://www.beinsports.tv/faq#faqarticle-17wlouuv9t9j91om6m9c82pf03. So why not give us an answer? What are you hiding? I have choose between 3 cable providers, and I have 29 days left to correct the mistake I made yesterday by switching from FiOs (who has BeIn Sport in HD) to Comcast.

Does anyone know why comcast STILL does not carry BEIN sport HD? Everyone I talked to has switched to other carriers to watch the best soccer leagues in the world. It doesn't make any sense. I've been asking any customer service agent I can get ahold of for the last 2 years why this channel isn't carried in HD. I unfortunately don't have the luxury of switching to dish because my building has a contract with comcast. 

 

COMCAST - PLEASE BRING BEIN SPORTS HD TO THE CHANNEL LINEUP!!!!!!!!!!!!

I paid a lot extra just so I can get Bein. It's not even 720p it's clearly 480.
I'm used to watch it before on Directv and the picture look incredibly amazing.
I guess I have to switch back to directv I'm not happy with this ugly comcast picture.

Comcast, what's the point of this forum? For people to have a place to vent, and for you to have a place to generate fodder for your internal office jokes. I switched from FiOS a mont ago and I have decided today (after giving up on streaming BeiNSport from your lousy iPad app to my Apple TV) that it is worth every penny of the early cancellation fee for me to switch back to FiOs. You don't listen. Don't understand the underlying message of this forum. "Soccer- we can ignore that preppy sport, it doesn't matter, it won't affect our EPS....." What you don't get is that the demographic is changing. Soccer is the world game and the new demographic will generate a lot more growth for you with soccer than all the other traditional US sports combined. Lucky for you, you won't have to worry about that when it happens, because you won't have a business then. Sincerely, " no longer a comcast customer"

I'm brand new to this forum because I have had similar frustrations as the others in this feed. Perhaps I'm naive, but I contacted Comcast Tech Support to submit a request to deliver BeInSports in HD. She took down my information and submitted my request for tracking purposes. She said as more subscribers contact Comcast Tech Support also requesting this service Comcast will view the number of requests and determine if there is a high enough demand warranting delivery. I asked how many have asked for something similar since I read so many requests through this forum. She said I was the first. That was obviously surprising. I asked how they gather the numbers of requests since they would all have to be directed to the same central type of request to obtain a true number of requests. Frankly, I didn't get a satisfactory answer. If anyone else has already contacted Comcast Tech Support, please let me know so I can deal with them and their gathering process. Thank you.

Hi,
This one is simple, all other provides offer BeinSport in HD except Comcast Xfinity.
Also, Comcast Xfinity is the only provider that is not allowing access to Bein Sport online through the BeinSport connect website.

Please make these changes to make the Sports Package attractive to all Comcast Suscriber soccer fans out there.

Thanks,

Hernan.

Could not say it any better...soccer (anything really) in SD is horrible. we had 2 HD soccer channels, lost GolTv in HD and no replacement. Now Bein has the Spanish, French, and Italian leagues...plus other cup games. Also only major provider to not be listed on beinsportsconnect. What a joke.

I just got off the phone with Comcast Tech Support and the person I spoke to talked to his supervisor and gave me an answer that makes sense. BEINSports is indeed available in HD, but Comcast is in negotiations with them about the cost to provide the broadcast in HD. Who knows if an agreement will ever be reached.he thinks it will most likely become available as interest in soccer in the US increase. His personal thought is as interest increases the another station may want to provide it, much like NBCSN provides the Premier League.

You would think that the "HD Technology Fee" under Bundled Services would cover all these negotiations as we (customers) are paying for it, since it's include on our bill

Comcast is scaming everyone for no apparant reason because if you go on BeIN's website (and I also called and talked to them) they specifically tell you that "we offer BeIN HD to all networks but it's up to them whether they give it to you or not". BeIN has no control over this but they encourage us to request HD if we have not already. As far as Im concerned, Comcast is the only TV network that doesn't offer BeIN HD
