You really need a good color commentator to keep you posted in these matches since a good 25% of the action takes place off the edge of the screen. My personal favorite is the Skynews broadcasts where the anchors are about 50% obscured by the edge of the screen. I'm paying extra for this?
If that isn't a sign that Comcast needs to get FSC HD added to more system ASAP then I don't know what is. Really frustrating that we're going to be stuck with standard def with that CONCACAF finals game on tonight with Real Salt Lake in it.
I want to unsubscribe to this discussion (switched to Direct last fall) but i can't stop checking the alerts to see who's still willing to shout into the Comcast vacuum. PICK a pull-the-plug date. WRITE a letter to Comcast mentioning all the names on this discussion. And CANCEL when they don't lift a finger. Preferably in time to get HD for the spring finals. You're missing some serious beauty.
So Fox Soccer is now putting an emphasis on Major League Soccer with their new "Soccer Night In America" campaign which will include an new pre/post game studio, slo-mo cameras, new on screen graphics, and other things. All these things in HD means nothing to me when Comcast still doesn't have the channel available to me in HD.
Yet I can watch reruns of the BCS on ESPN 3D. So much for Comcast carrying the most live sports in HD lol.
Well, yesterday's Man Utd vs Chelsea is the last Fox Soccer "In HD" broadcast that I will have to watch in SD - the Verizon FIOS engineer is here at my house, hooking me up! Yep, FIOS has FSC HD...
I'm not for a second saying that FSC HD is the ONLY reason I'm switching service after 11 years with Comcast and its predecessors, but it certainly tipped the balance. I was fielding one of those annoying calls you get from Verizon from time to time, but this time they had something worthwhile to offer. And, of course, I will save some money for a while with a sweet starter deal, though I'm in no doubt that FIOS will learn to annoy me just as much as Comcast.
I am sure that FSC HD on Comcast is coming, since it has already been launched in Philly. In fact, it will probably be in place in time for next season. But if they cannot be bothered to give a schedule to loyal, patient customers, well.... you know.
I just got my bill online a moment ago. I got excited for a second when I saw the date 6/6/11 at the start of the news part of the bill....
Then got more excited when I saw the words "Comcast will preview...."
Then died inside when I saw it was another two lame shopping networks (ShopNBC and Jewerly). Exactly what we need MORE of on cable is shopping networks. Excuse me now folks I need to bang my head against an brickwall repeatedly at just how absurd it is that Comcast continues to find every excuse not to add Fox Soccer HD yet keeps adding worthless channels that NOBODY is watching.
The sad part of watching FSC in SD is that they still have the 'HD' icon in the upper right of the screen just mocking me! So, it seems like Comcast gets the HD feed, but will only carry it on a SD channel (401 for me). So, is it that hard to add the HD version of the channel and just pipe the same feed through it?
It is a total joke that we don't have FSC or Goltv in HD when all the other major carriers (FIOS and the satellites) offer it and some cities like Philly have had it for months. Philly also gets other channels in HD like FEARNET that I don't even have available in SD, I don't understand why Comcast keeps adding horrible channels like the shopping, religious, and CSPAN in HD but I have to watch the sports package that I pay extra for in SD. Soccer in HD is so much better than in SD that it really should have been one of the first HD channels added but instead it is the last assuming we ever get it here in Maryland. Sometimes I wonder if Comcast really has any desire to keep my business. There is no way I'll put up with no HD for the soccer channels when the season restarts in August. After more than a decade with Comcast, it looks like I'll be moving to FIOS this summer because of this issue alone. Pathetic customer service from Comcast.
want to pay less? call comcast ask to be switched to a customer retention specialist and tell them what you want to pay and boom there you go. Instant cable reduction, that is if you have any competition in your area
well uh Dish network seems to be really popular in my area. Neighbor has it neighbor across the street has it Neighbor across my neighbor has dish network. I think Im the only one with comcast. in my immediate area.
I'm near about heading for DirecTV. Without any serious word as to the availability in a huge football market like ours, nevermind missing out on all the EPL, SerieA, La Liga matches in HD, it seems inevitable.
"You'll Never Walk Alone" unless waiting for FSC in HD on Comcast. Reds!
CONCACAF Gold cup soccer, awesome! Watching it in SD, terrible. Come on Comcast, the bay area NEEDS Fox Soccer in HD. We are trying to support our country, so you need to support your customers! FSC in HD for the Bay Area and all comcast customers, please.
Does anybody have any idea how to unsubscribe from this forum? I've been getting reply alerts for a year and a half now. I may have start swearing just to get banned. Anyhoo, I'm on direct tv now in Minneapolis. Champions League final in HD. Wow. And now a summer of MLS. Yay!
