What Tier??? FS2 and David Bowie's space oddity are in the same tier.  Not to dump on Pharrell, but there are THIRTY-SIX (36) pages of discussion (and counting).  The vast majority of us cannot get FS2 through Comcast nor are we likely to ever get it.  I dumped Comcast due to high cost, number of channels I will never, ever watch and the lack of FS2.  Well, I recently got married and, guess what, she had Comcast.  The bright side is my spam e-mail continues to be directed to my comcast e-mail account.  I periodically log in here to see what y'all are saying.   

The fix is we all mark posts from ComcastTeds and ComcastAmir as "solutions",  pencil whip it so this is "solved".

to quote from the above link:

You'll need the following to get started:

  • A subscription to XFINITY TV that includes the network you want to watch.

pretty sure you will find if you don't have FS2 in your area, in your package and available to you on your TV, you still won't get it. I do not get FS2 via Comcast's TV Go App.  Please, please, if you have found a work around or a loophole, do share details.

 

I just checked my app

https://www.xfinity.com/support/cable-tv/live-tv-streaming/

which still does NOT show FS2.

a quote from comcast.

Does live TV streaming with the XFINITY Stream app/XFINITY Stream portal include all channels?
When connected to your in-home XFINITY network, you can watch all the channels on your lineup (i.e., those included with your XFINITY TV subscription) through the XFINITY Stream app and portal, with the exception of pay per view or Adult channels. Outside the home, over 200 channels and over 40,000 TV shows and movies from your lineup will be available for live streaming.

 

Now, I am still pretty much convinced that, while "TV Everywhere" and XFinity streaming are different, when you try to log into a content provider with your Comcast information, if you do NOT have FS2, you will NOT be able to view FS2.

 

I do not find TV Everywhere as a distinct app.  Again, if anyone finds a workaround or can show I am wrong, please post.

Thanks,

Me

Apologies. I am looking into this now with our California team to get clarification.

 

Where did you see/hear that Fox Sports 2 is available to you online and via mobile?  Thanks for any additional information that you are able to provide.

The new sticky thread about "New TV Anywhere Networks" mentions FS2. The problem is, does Comcast carry FS2 anywhere?

Apologies for any confusion we may have caused here. That was not the intention. 

 

Fox Sports 2 is available via our app and online if you have this channel available and subscribed to in your channel lineup. Customers who have Fox Sports 2 in their current level of service now have the opportunity to view this channel online and via mobile devices via our XFINITY Stream app. We will make that distinction clearer in the other announcement.

 

The below is still accurate.

   

ONLINE ACCESS

The current contract terms with Fox only allow online access to Fox Sports 2 for customers who have that channel (Fox Sports 2) in their level of service.

That is how most all cable networks operate and this situation is standard across all video providers.

Below from the Fox Sports Go site: http://msn.foxsports.com/foxsportsgo/

 

Live streams of all the FOX Sports Networks are available at no additional cost to fans who receive FOX Sports as part of their TV subscription through participating TV providers. If you get FOX Sports 1, FOX Sports 2, and FOX sports regional channels at home, you've got access!

Got it, thanks!

 

And yes, Comcast does offer Fox Sports 2 in a few areas. In areas where we do carry FS2 and a customer has FS2 in their level of service, they can now view FS2 content online and on a mobile device using our XFINITY Stream app. We will make that distinction clearer in the other announcement.

How do the 85-90% of All Comcast/Xfinity subscribers that don't have Fox Sports 2 as part of their Channel tiers Stream/watch Fox Sports 2 online?

You would need to be receiving Fox Sports 2 as part of your subscribed channel lineup to access content online, Spiderbaggins.

No. That's the answer.  Unless you have FS2 on your cable service, you aren't going to get it on-line.  This has been going on for years, this thread now 36 pages long, and by now, it's clear that it will never happen in our lifetimes.  Most of us have moved on, either to other providers (which is Comcast's suggestion if you are unhappy about their service; rather callous advice, if you ask me), or found online streaming services to watch the particular programs you want to see that would otherwise be availabile on FS2 (such as Le Mans, and the rest of the WEC season, IMSA, etc.)  It is my prediction that, since Fox will no longer cover FISA, there will be little to see on FS2 anyway, and it probably won't last long.  Fox thought they could instantly compete with ESPN, and all their channels, without considering that ESPN took years to build up it's offerings so that it needed an ESPN2.  FS2 is basically now used to shovel off races that go on too long on FS1, or other various niche sports.  Their vewership numbers for that channel don't even warrent expansion to the rest of the Comcast customers, yet they think they can command a high price for including it in everyone's line-up.  That's the hang-up and the reason Comcast will not, for any reason, offer FS2 to all of it's customers, no matter how many request it (which in the grand scheme of things, is a very low number, despite the number of posts on this thread)  If you already have FS2, it's because the cable company you had before Comcast bought it out had a contract with FUEL TV.  If you had FUEL TV with Comcast, you may have noticed it mysteriously dissappeared about six months before the launch of FS2.  So there you have it, 36 pages of requests, complaints, "solutions", etc. in a nutshell.

I'd be happy if they would stop splitting the coverage between FS1 & FS2.  My big sport is Sports Car Racing, specifically long distance Sports Car Racing like LeMans, the Nurburgring 6 Hr, Daytona 24 hr and the Sebring (Fla) 12 hour race.  Fox or Comcast or whoever thinks it's acceptable to air the 1st part of a race on FS1 and the rest on FS2.   It's so frustrating to watch 5 hours of a 6 hour race on FS1 and the last HOUR is on FS2 or wait for the last hour to be aired the following Sunday!  A whole week!    Arrrrrgggg!  I guess I should happy they are showing it at all, but nooooo, they dropped the last hour so a Nascar race can ne shown.  Seems it would be better to just delay the Nascar race by an hour, but I doubt they even considered this option.   Actually the best option would be to provide FS2 to us on the internet or to make FS2 available on Comcast the same as FS1.  I know this is a wasted letter, Comcast has been bombarded by complaints like this for years with no movement or even response from a Official Employee.  I give up, I'm going to DTV.

LIke I've posted before, throughout this thread, if you are into the WEC, then get their app, pay $40.00 something dollars for the season, and you can watch all of the WEC races, uninterrupted by commercials, from start to finish (if you can stay awake for 24 hours).  It's definitly worth the price (heck of a lot cheaper than going to the races; at least for me).  I use the air-play to watch on my TV, as if it's being broadcast by a network.  THe differences is, like I mentioned before, no commercials, and the commentators actully know what they're talking about, thanks to Radio Le Mans.  If you miss some of the race, they replay it in hour long peices, so you can go over what you missed if say, you fell asleep.  6 hours of the Nurburgring was a great race last weekend.

For IMSA, if you want to see it live, get a VPN based in the UK, then you can watch the IMSA live stream, with the same commentary (John Hindaugh, Toby Moody, Alan McNish, and the rest of the Radio LeMans gang.) and no commercials either.  I also have a streaming package with Virgin Australia Supercars.  A lot of other series you can watch on Youtube as well (Blanpain Endurance Series, Hankook 24H series, Bathurst 12 hours etc.)  It's the future of TV, and Comcast hates it (which is why they are now limiting data usage; so pay for unlimited.)

Big Nascar fan. For nearly four years now I've missed many practice and qualifying sessions but I can somewhat live with that...but now we have hit rock bottom.

The Eldora truck series heat races are on FS2 as I type this. Well, at least I'm told they are, I sure as heck can't see the channel. Very frustrating. I see a lot of people chiming in on Twitter and I love it!

Tweets of the year:

@JonSchantz: Will enjoy reading about it on twitter 🙄. amazing how Xfinity is a NASCAR partner yet they don't carry FS2? pathetic @comcast @comcastcares

@25jroller: Extremely disappointed w/ @NASCARONFOX and @NASCAR_Trucks bc I can't watch or steam Qualifying races bc i don't have FS2 bc I have @XFINITY

What a JOKE.
