Southern New Jersey and Philadelphia don't get Bein HD or Fox sports 2 AT ALL. I'm switching to direct tv if we don't get word of getting it soon. I suggest everyone else do the same.

Another vote for PLEASE PUT BEIN SPORTS on the HD lineup.  It comes to y'all in HD, and you're downscaling.  That has to take more time/manpower than just putting the original HD signal up.  Looks like it's been 3 years of people asking for this.  Just do it?

No BEIN in HD, no GolTV. I cannot say it any other way. Comcast sucks!!!! changing to Uverse. Comcast does not show any interest in adding these channels to their lineup.

Just switched from Uverse to Comcast. Before switching confirmed bein was included in Comcast package, then switched. Now completely, thoroughly disapointed to realize it only comes in SD. Just never thought to ask...Comcast that advertises its high speed cable network does not offer bein in HD??? Uverse had it!

 

I may have to switch...really miss the sport channel lineup Uverse offers much more.

It took THREE YEARS for Comcast/Xfinity to provide beIN Sports ñ in HD for our area (western Oregon), so I'd switch, if I were you. We still don't have the English-language version in HD. beIN Connect does not list Comcast/Xfinity as one of the providers in its app. Why?

Remember when you were told how great the free market was for consumers then you realized there are just a bunch of monopolies that overcharge their customers and have no incentive to better the service cause Hey! We're a freaking monopoly! Try going somewhere else. Can't wait until Google and Apple crush all these overpriced Internet and cable monopolies.

Gee.... Looks like this thread has been going for a year and still comcast doesn't seem to get it.

I just added the "Sports entertainment" package to be able to get beIN sports HD.

I get the "beIN Sports HD" cause you can see the beIN Sports HD logo in the corner. BUT apparently Comcast doesn't bother to broadcast it in HD and scales it down to SD which looks like cow manure.

So what's up with that? If it's a bandwidth problem you have 50 or 60 HD junk channels that nobody watches and people are paying EXTRA for beIN Sports HD. It needs to actually be in HD. Get with it

I will add my voice to the chorus.  Very disappointed that the quality of beIN Sport is so bad with Comcast.  Here's what beIN Sport's website says ...

 

Why isn’t beIN SPORTS available in HD from my provider?

    beIN SPORTS and beIN SPORTS en Español is offered in HD to all our cable TV and satellite providers at no additional cost to them for carrying it.  Providers decide whether they offer HD or SD to their customers. Please contact your provider and let them know you want the beIN SPORTS networks in HD today

 

I guess all we can do is keep asking.  If the answer from Comcast continues to be "no," however, it would be nice to at least receive an explanation why.  This thread shows years of frustration by customers without any adequate response from Comcast itself.  My experience with Comcast as a relatively new customer has been pretty good, but this particular issue is demonstrating to me why I had always heard they have such a poor customer service reputation.  These requests and comments at least deserve a response!  As the previous poster said, please keep in mind we pay for this!

Up until about July 1 you were pretty responsive to inquiries from subscribers. I will ask again, when will the English station for beinSports HD be provided in the San Francisco Bay Area. We have the Spanish station. It is now time for the English station.

If you have VZ FiOS as an alternative, you should jump and run. It took Xfinity/Comcast 3 years to get beIN ñ HD in our area. They still don't have the English-language version available, though I can watch any number of useless channels in HD. I'm fortunate that I speak Spanish, but I'm in solidarity with my non-Spanish-speaking brothers and sisters. I would give a lot for our area to have true competition to Xfinity/Comcast. Only satellite companies, which are vastly inferior, provide any alternative, here.

Comcast is a complete ripoff and joke. 3 years and we still don't have BeIn sports in HIGH DEFINITION......ridiculous. DirecTV is better. Also I pay for the sports & entertainment package but can't watch football/soccer games onESPN deportes or fox deportes. What gives?? Comcast you continue to not listen to your customers.

@Jmboucha - I, too, think that the sports package is a ripoff. I understand that the Deportes channels of Fox and Univision are Spanish-language channels, but to force us to pay for the Spanish-language sports channels, separately, feels like we're being exploited. It took Xfinity/Comcast THREE years to get beIN Sports ñ in HD in our area. Unfortunately, satellite providers don't perform well, here. Otherwise, I'd leave Xfinity/Comcast behind.

Yes 3 years and 7 pages of posts and still nothing, but I'm so excited that I got discovery family in HD. ARE YOU PEOPLE SERIOUS...I bet there were a whole nobody asking for that. I'm actually starting to believe the idea that this is on purpose to push the premier league because they have a huge conflict of interest. Comcast needs to be broken up like bell telephone. It's enough already.

@donope - It's insane. Sorry you're having to watch La Liga, Serie A, and Ligue games in SD. I'm still trying to figure out how beIN ñ and Univision Deportes are included with the Sports package, but ESPN Deportes and Fox Deportes aren't. So, no UEFA championship qualifiers for me. Rip-off.

Be warned: It took THREE YEARS from the time we first signed up for the sports package to get beIN Sports ñ HD (we get both English-language and Spanish-language SD). I'm lucky that I don't care whether it's in Spanish or not, but my wife would certainly enjoy it more in English. Yes, I can switch the games to English using the setup of the STB, but the rest of the programming is in Spanish. If I could move to a different provider, I would.

Two great games on this weekend, the Milan derby and Barcelona v Atletico Madrid...and i probably wont even bother to watch either one because of the garbage picture quality. Seriously thinking about going to Dish. They now have a 2 year rate lock and they have bein in English in HD and FS1 AND FS2 in HD. My god what a crazy idea. It's enough already.

@donope - You've heard it from me, before: If I had an alternative, I would leave Xfinity/Comcast. Were I you, I wouldn't hesitate. Xfinity/Comcast won't give a timeline. It will just, one day, become available. Good luck.

@donope - I wonder, often, why customers don't get a choice of cable providers. For instance, I'd like to choose between Xfinity and Verizon FiOS. Instead, I get only to choose between Xfinity and satellite companies. In our area (the Pacific Northwest), satellite doesn't work very well. Weather is a factor, and, well, lots of trees and hills. Of course, invariably, satellite providers have issues with content providers that I don't often see with Xfinity. So, there's that. But, Xfinity makes like they've got great service, but they're not at all responsive to customers' requests for information.

@RobGrave1-we have some Verizon fios in our area (north of philly) but of course I live in an apt building thats only with comcast. Comcast is too big, plain and simple. They have NBC, Universal, and almost got Time Warner. It's borderline criminal  (but as I like to say, the really powerful never have to break the law, they just have them changed.)

@donope - I agree that Comcast is too big. Their claim to be customer-service-oriented is hogwash [please insert stronger invective; I don't wish to have my post "moderated"]. I'm unsure as to why or how it is unprofitable for competing technologies (e.g. VZ FiOS) to offer in markets such as ours. A company offering good service will get the customers. In the meantime, we wait for FS2 (both SD & HD), as well as beIN Connect and beIN Sports HD (English-language version). Oh, we've got HD channels galore where we can watch animals die for no good reason, view costume jewelry we won't purchase, and ludicrous people like Ted Nugent, but we can't view the most-popular sport IN THE WORLD easily.

i was looking to see when Comcast intends to offer this channel (726) in HD. I pay a little extra for the sports package in order to watch Spanish LaLiga soccer. I know BEIN offers the channel in HD because Fios and satellite have it in true HD. I called Comcast this morning and was advised it is only offered in SD. Is there a timeframe when we will have this in HD?

Seriously, I'm getting pretty sick of laying extra money for a channel I can barely watch because of extremely poor picture quality. beIN SPORTS IS BROADCAST IS HD, WHY WONT COMCAST ADD THE HD CHANNEL AND CARRY IT! EVERY SINGLE OTHER CHANNEL THAT IS BROADCAST IN HD COMCAST OFFERS IN HD......EXCEPT BEIN SPORTS. THAT'S ABSURD IT'S WRONG AND NO ONE AT COMCAST CARES BECAUSE THE CORPORATE CROOKS AT COMCAST HQ KNOW THAT EITHER WAY PEOPLE WILL PAY THE EXTRA MONEY FOR THE CHANNEL AND SPORTS AND ENTERTAINMENT PACKAGE AND JUST DEAL WITH IT. ALL I SEE IS FORUM AFTER FORUM AFTER FORUM OF COMCAST CUSTOMERS REQUESTING AND RANTING ABOUT BEIN SPORT NOT BEING IN HD. THAT'S GARBAGE AND REPRESENTS POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE THAT IN AND OF ITSELF SHOULD BE ENOUGH TO PROMPT COMCAST TO ADD THE CHANNEL IN HD!! IT'S BROADCAST IN HD, WHY WON'T COMCAST ADD AND OFFER IT????? CAN'T SAY IT'S ABOUT MONEY BECAUSE I KNOW THAT'S A LIE, COMCAST HAS MORE THAN ENOUGH. Time to own up and honor your "customer service excellency" and try to please the customer. Pretty sure I'm goin back to Direct TV or Fios by the end of the year when Verizon Finishes digging in my neighborhood to lay all the fiber optic cable. Tired of the outrageous cable bills and tired of not getting the one little thing that everyone on here wants.

In our area, we have beIN Sports ñ HD. However, the audio portion isn't consistent. If I use "default language" in the setup area of the STB, it switches from one game to another from Spanish to English to Spanish, again. If the primary language for a game is English, and I want to listen to the Spanish-language commentators (they're often much more insightful), I have to switch the STB's audio feed to "English!" It's so frustrating.

@Cruncher1201 - That's not saying much, of course. I LOVE (sarcasm, there) that we can get all the shopping channels in HD, but not soccer.

 

@Dzl - Don't count on finding out any time  soon. The Comcast moderators have abandoned the thread. I haven't seen a post by any of them in a while, and I've posted some questions directly to one or two and haven't received a response. It's hard for them to answer questions that the company doesn't want answered. I'm guessing they risk losing their jobs.

@robgrave1 they have abandoned this thread and the fox sports 2 in HD thread as well. I had the "honor" of working for Comcast for a bit and it was the most disjointed and mismanaged organization you can imagine. I'm sure the moderators were like me, never informed of anything and told to just say the same scripted nonsense over and over. To everyone, expect no answers and no action on their part anytime in the near future.

@donope - Thanks for the heads-up. I figured that they had to have abandoned it, and I think I know why. It must be discouraging for them to be put on the spot like this. I keep posting because I went without beIN HD for so long, I feel an obligation to speak up. Besides, beIN Connect and Fox2 would be nice to have. beIN Connect is the app that would allow, I think, more content and remote access to beIN-televised games. Of course, FS2 is a channel that often broadcasts alternative games. If I could move off of Comcast, I would. I suppose it's not good for me to say that, since it clearly indicates that there is no competition for Xfinity/Comcast in our area that is worth a heck. Maybe I'll just "cut the cord" and go with online services. I fear that Xfinity would seek revenge by throttling bandwidth. Remind me: Why'd I quit drinking?
