Why does Bein sports say HD but the channel is not HD. It's channel 726, no HD. Create an HD channel in the 800s.

I have a better chance getting a new job and moving to another state with a different provider that waiting for comcast..... Also really mad my sports package doesn't include ESPN Deportes (is still SD but I could see it from watchespn if I had it) or Univision Deportes and that Fox Deportes and both Bein Sports are in SD.

BEIN is listed in the HD channels here in the SF Bay Area. But it's audio only. Very silly.

So really quick online search at in the official FAQS section of bein sports website. It says that they offer both sd and hd channels to all providers at no additional cost and its up to the provider to give us the channel they see fit. Comcast is not going to cost you any more money to just upgrade the sd to hd.
Thanks

8th page, 3rd year and 355th post and still NOTHING! Think it's about time to go to dish network. I recommend you do the same (if you can get fios, go with that first, I can't get it.)

I had the same problem when beIN and UNIVision were both offered in HD. It turned out that my STB was out-of-date and unable to handle the programming. It was a Motorola, but I don't remember the model #. I finally got Xfinity to make a tech visit to replace my STB with another Motorola, RGN200N (bigger hard drive for more storage, by the way), and the problem was solved. I would suggest that you call Xfinity and get your box replaced.

AT&T already had it in HD it's Comcast that decided it would be a great idea to downscale an already HD signal to a crappy 480p.  Comcast blows.

I agree, its total bs. I just switched from Uverse where I had both BEIN sports channels in HD.

The Comcast sales agent assured me I would have the same high quality picture with Comcast/Xfinity. She was wrong and was lied too.

I contacted BEIN to see if it was their fault, its not. BEIN offers the HD signal free of charge to all providers who offer BEIN. The blame lies firmly with you Comcast, you are the only provider not broadcasting the HD signal. Shame on you.

 

This is from the BEIN website. FAQ's

 

"6. 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: Get beIN"

Amazing. We dropped DirecTV on Friday after 20 years, due to three years of inaction re: adding the PAC-12 Network. We added xfinity TV to our existing Comcast internet service, the bundle price was attractive. Added the Sports Package, naturally. I tune in to watch Serie A on beIn this past weekend, and can't believe my eyes. Fuzzy, crappy, cropped SD broadcast. It must be me, I'm still learning the channel lineup. Search, search, search, no HD version. Wow. Go online, Google a bit, find out about Change.com petitions, 8 page forums, hundreds of complaints. I called Comcast tonight, chatted with a nice enough fellow (Edward), he opened a service ticket and completed a channel request form for me, to pass up the food chain. It felt like he heard me, but this could just be corporate CSR "feel good" chatter, to make me feel like something might happen. Anyone else try this route? What was the end result? "Thanks, we'll share your concerns with management"?

I also had this issue and found that BEin Espanol in the latino package is HD. I got a special promo for $9.99. I got this for La Liga and South American qualifiers, I could care less about the rest of the channels. HD should be included in sports package. Considering going back to DirectTV but the rain in Miami is the only reason I haven't made the change and I'm usually watching most of my tv on a rainy day.

I just decided to give up. This company continuosly mocks their clients, never listens and keep raising our cable bill. Too bad I don't have any other options in my Chicago condo but be certain that I'm looking into streaming options and very soon I will be cutting the cord. What a joke calling itself a company. On the meantime we have 1 shopping channel and two NRA hunting channels in glorious HD here in downtown Chicago. Unbelievable!

All the shopping networks come in HD cause you know that it's important to whoever does not know that they can buy things at stores.  Anywhere.

I have been asking that since 2012. I am planning to switch to either Dish or DirectTV just for this reason. Xfinity is the ONLY provider excluded from BeIN Sport Connect. There must be a reason but Comcast never bothered explaining it. I also live in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Everyone, please post these comments on their Twitter and Facebook feeds. They can ignore this forum, since "only" customers will see it. Comcast only cares about new prospecting customers, that's why they offer promos only for new subscribers. Twitter and Facebook are the place to go.

It's called CONFLICT OF INTEREST...and is borderline criminal. Lets push our own product and restrict your ability to watch anything else but the BPL.

I like BPL but I am mostly interested in Italian Serie A. Only BeIn Sport shows it, if Comcast wants to only show their own channels, they should start broadcasting all leagues (Liga, Serie A, Bundesliga).

I just could'n believe that Comcast didn't put Bein sports in HD by now. I know many western states got Bein in Spanish in HD earlier this year. So I'm assuming eastern states should be next my common sense tells Me. Maybe we are going to have Christmas surprise. I hope so.

What horrible service from Xfinity/Comcast! No beIN Sports Connect, no beIN Sports HD for many, many markets, and no answers by them. And, Xfinity/Comcast is throttling bandwidth ot punish streamers, so changing to a no-set-top-box situation isn't as feasible as it could be. I'm disgusted. It should be illegal to reduce data-cap to "punish" streamers. Why is it our fault that Xfinity/Comcast is failing to give us the service we deserve? After all, they're not giving away their signal, by any means. I'm no longer so understanding about their stranglehold on our wallets and choices. There may be good people working there, but the company sucks.

I'm sorry, StefanN, but you're howling at the moon. Xfinity/Comcast neither reads or concerns itself with this forum. I think it's a way for them to engage us in such a way so that we don't feel compelled to pick up a phone and call, or something else. I work for a living (as do we all) and can't call during business hours. So, if you have an opportunity to change providers, you should. We here in the Pacific Northwest don't have much of a choice because of weather. DirecTV, or any satellite provider, isn't an option for me. Jump while you can.

I am very upset to find that the channel BEIN HD is in fact not HD. I, like others, bought the sports package to watch LaLiga in HD and it is not. The sales rep did not even tell me. I am very disappointed with Comcast/Xfinity and when I get a chance to get VerizonFIOS, I will.

Just switched from Direct TV, to discover that Xfinity does not offer Bein HD and also IT IS THE ONLY TV PROVIDER not giving the ability to log in to Bein Sports Connect (that gives you the ability to watch games that are not live on TV). 

 

I spent 2 hours with their specialist trying to explain this. Well 2 wasted hours, he did not have a clue of what they have.

Comcast does indeed inhale private parts big time when it comes to sports channels in HD. No Fox Sports 2. No BeIN Sports in HD. Why?? Comcast won't answer. They only listen. They are really good listeners. 

 

I have requested HD and Fox Sports 2 many times. They continue to listen and I continue to watch in SD. Who's the fool?

I have asked for be-in sports to be broadcast in HD for years and I've had to pay for a sports package just to watch it in SD. FIOS just came to my neighborhood and now I have be-in sports in HD as part of my regular channels. No extra cost, and it is a pleasure to be able to watch soccer as it should be. It makes me smile and no more stupid excuses from Comcast!

Yes it is really a shame for Comcast not only to be the only company not being able to provide Bein in HD, but also to be the only company that doesn't let you to connect with BeIn connect so you can watch game that are not broadcast on TV. And they just increase their TV broadcast fee by 5$ per month
