BEIN Sport in HD

Did they say that they (beinSports) do not charge any extra costs to Comcast for their (beinSports) HD broadcast?  Because I was told by Comcast that they negotiate a contracted price between them (Comcast) and beinSports for this additional HD service, and that the two of them are still negotiating costs for this additional service.  I doubt Comcast is in any hurry to negotiate a costly price if the interest in beinSports HD is low compared to the millions of overall Comcast customers.  We need to constantly telephone Comcast's Technical Support people and continually ask for this service so they understand the interest.  As interest increases they may more seriously negotiate with beinSports. But, then again, I don't know.

Comcast:

You have recently added to Comcast Sports Channels that often carry concurrent programs and multiple reruns of the same programming through out the day.

Please add BeIN Sports in HD so we can fully enjoy the programming we pay for. As you probably know the live sports programming is what keeps a lot of your customers.

We sports fans want fresh programming and are frustrated when it seems that you are wasting valuable channel spaces with duplicate programming.

No difference?  That's your answer.  It's obviuosly different in size AND quality of the image.  How about using that money Comcast overcharges their customers and actually provide HD like all the other sports channels it offers?

Here in Chicago, BeIN Sports is definitely 480.  This is ridiculous, because so many other channels are in HD, like the "Esquire Channel."  I mean, What The Fooey is the Esquire Channel, and why is it in HD, while BeIN is not?

 

COMCAST:  Get it together here!  We want BeIN in HD!  1080i would be great, but I would be happy with 720!!

 

What's up with this???

This is the email I got from a Comcast representative.

 

Good afternoon,

 

Thank you for getting back to me so quickly,  Your feedback regarding programming availability in high definition was forwarded to our Marketing group.  I was advised that BeIn Sports has agreed as part of their licensing renewal process will be offered in both an SD and HD version.  The exact dates of negotiations and implantation is not something that we are able to share.  I would recommend that you watch your billing statement for programming changes.  Typically you will be notified 30 days in advance and the relevant channel numbers will also be provided.

 

Regards,

Cheryl Jacqueson

Thanks man!!!
I hope this will be the end of this SD vs HD nightmare with Comcast.
I just hope that this is not another simple “b#@!*%” coming from a Comcast representative. I am saying this because we have been waiting for Comcast flip this channel in HD since they first put it in SD, back years ago. I am crossing my fingers.
I remember the days when the Fox Soccer channel (current Fox Sport) used to be in SD only.

A week before the channel was available in HD, I had met a lady from Comcast in my building near downtown Silver Spring, MD. I complained to the lady about the lack of Fox Soccer in HD. She told me that I was wrong; she even asked me if I had a HD TV set. According to her that channel was always in HD on Comcast. She stated that in her house the channel was one of the most watched. I insisted that if she wanted to verify, that she could come to my apartment and see it for herself. She declined but called her own home to verify the availability of the channel in HD. She was told that it was in SD “zoomed-in” to fill the screen, which was done from the TV set. On that day she promised me that we will very soon get the Fox Soccer HD channel.
A week later we had the Fox Soccer channel in HD in Montgomery County, MD.
Knowing that it takes some time (but not forever) and planning to realign the cable TV channels, I still consider my encounter with the lady and the Fox Soccer HD channel coming to my area as a pure coincidence. The other residents of my building think she is the one who brought us the HD channel.
I just watched Barcelona play against Villarreal on bein-sport, but I had to go to a friend’s place. He got Verizon…, I got Comcast!!!!

I pray this is true but after several years of pleading with Comcast to carry BeIN in HD I've become a cynic. I had the pleasure of watching Leo Messi and the Barca boys in HD on FS1 in their Champions League match against ManCity and the quality difference nearly brought me to tears. But, back to the cynical me that Comcast has created, I'll believe it when I see it.

I see lots of people have gave up trying to get comcast to offer bein sports in HD. This channel os being given to comcast in an HD format, but they are making it SD for the user. I know a lot of friends that just simply changed to other companies because of this.

I watch La Liga, which is in my opinion the most important league, I would like to see it in HD. I am not going to start watching the premier league just because its offered in HD, nor will my children. If its a matter of tryijg to make the premier league bigger because comcast owns the right to the premier (pretty much), it doesn't work. You guys want to keep growing? Make all latin sports channel HD, after all Latins are the fastest growing minority in the US.

How many households don't have a HD TV? Don't more people watch HD than SD? Why wouldn't the proportion of HD/SD reflect the reality that no one watches SD anymore? Get with the times Comcast! You could delete all my SD channels tomorrow and I would never know the difference and yet I have 3x as many unwatchable SD channels as I do HD.

I fiND that hard to believe Comcast. It's become a monopoly and while you provide a service your customers are taken advantage of and have to pay extra money for a sports package where there really one soccer channel in that line up instead of offering just the channel. I'd happily pay the extra $5 for just BeIN if it was offered in HD. this is garbage but I haveno choice at the moment and fios is not offered in my neighborhood yet...but once it is I'm leaving Comcast and it's crooked ways for better service and more and better channel lineups plus more HD

I enrolled to Comcast 3 months ago, and then I realized that beIN sport was not being transmitted in HD. After many call to complain about this, and after watching the Clasico yesterday in a terrible quality I cancelled my service today, and I am returning to Direct TV.

 

Please Comcast understand that in this country there are also soccer fans, that was to watch soccer in HD. If you dont want to continue losing customer because of that, do something now.

 

Comcast just entered here in Weston, FL, and I know many people will do soon the same thing I did today.

It's in HD if you watch the live streaming on xfinity's website, which is the only option if you're family doesn't have sat.

Comcast does not want to provide an HD channel for BEIN Sports despite the availability of the broadcasts in HD.  It has been years since they told me that and they have done nothing to broadcast BEIN in HD. What can we do to get this change to happen? Obviously sitting by and writing in this forum is getting us nowhere. This forum is just for customers; personnel of Comcast/XFINITI do not even read it. What kind of protest would get their attention?

I almost cried when directv said they couldn't install my dish. 12 years of loyalty to them, only because they always provide the best channels. I don't care if I have to pay. If it's what I watch I'll pay it. 

 

All i I kept telling directv was"please don't make me go to Comcast" it's the only company that still thinks so is normal. The biggest soccer channel in the country they decide to make sd just for kicks and giggles. I'm about to break my lease just to leave Comcast

It's hard to believe that we have to put up with this issue for so long. beIN offers both SD and HD for the same cost, so there is absolutely NO REASON that Comcast shouldn't offer beIN in HD. We're talking about the world's most-popular sport, here. It's hard not to feel the predjudice.

When is Comcast planning to offer beIN Sports in full HD. Current picture quality on this channel is very poor.  This includes beIN Sports in spanish.  I switched from Verizon Fios to Xfinity and discovered Xfinity does not have as many HD channels as Fios.  This is very disappointing. Comcast needs to up their game and provide a higher quality product.  I'm subscribing to the Xfinity Complete. The Comcast operator indicated that this channel was full HD but it is not.

I just got off the phone with Comcast after asking about how the negotiations were going with beinSPORTS to begin delivering their broadcast in HD.  The customer service person I spoke with said that my timing to ask that question was perfect because the Comcast staff just got a notice today that beinSPORTS will be delivered in HD to Comcast customers beginning in about mid-May.  We should be seeing a notice about this and a couple other channels previously in SD to be in HD in our upcoming bills.
