please please please please please Speed2 don't let Time Warner customers have all the fun. give Speed2 to us please please please please... don't make me switch to an inferior service just to get Speed2
I would make the switch to dish network. Comcast has iron tight contract with my apartment building, so that means I have no choice but to pester Comcast! I think the main stumbling block is that speed network is own by Fox, which recently started to roll out authentication system. That means that each cable provider now has to configure the contracts with FOX. I’m sure fox wants more money from cable provider before they grant us access.
I am a die hard car racing fan, and I can't get over that I am not able to get Speed2 because Comcast does not offer that service. I will defenetely switch cable services when the contract is up. Comcast is bad! Six months after I established the service, I still have not gotten the $300 gift card that was promise to me. Worst yet I have all three services, phone, Internet, and tv.
Who else wants Comcast/Xfinity to offer SPEED2? I have sent numerous requests from the SPEED2 web site as well as emails directly to Comcast. The only answer I got from Comcast was that there was no interest in it. I searched SPEED2 in the Comcast forums and found over 5000 views to previous people asking for it ... How about we make this go viral and see if we can get Comcast's attention that way? What is the best way to do that ... for us to get 5000 "likes" ... or 5000 "replies" ... or 5000 new posts, all asking for the same thing?
Comcast did not get 20 million customers over night; every journey begins with a single step, etc.
I don't know how many SPEED2 enthusiasts Comast would need to be swamping them with emails to make them sit up and notice, but I HAVE noticed that the number of their competitors who now offer SPEED2 in my area has grown from 4 to 8 in the last 18 months. I now have a choice of Time Warner Cable, Bright House, Cablevision, Dish, Cox, DirecTV, Verizon and WOW! ... but I don't want to swap if we can get Comast to do the right thing.
Don't you feel let down by Comcast when you pay them hundreds of dollars a year to watch their cable-provided TV shows, you see their TV ads that tell you to "sign-up now for SPEED2", and when you go to sign up you get the equivalent of "Thanks for your cable-bill money but you are not important enough for us to be bothered with right now; please send an email that no-one will read and we will do nothing to help you. We appreciate your business. Insincerely, Comcast."
Do you think Comast would already be providing access to SPEED2 if it was the only way to watch NASCAR or another super-popular sport like that?
Stand up for "the little guy" and tell Comcast that they need to provide SPEED2 ... NOW!
My second time posting here (under a different username). Comcast, I'm seriously considering switching when the contract is up, largely due to lack of Speed2.com. As the Speed Channel turns more into NASCAR and reality tv, more of us enthusiasts and car nuts will have a need for the Speed2 content, and more of us will become dissatisfied with Comcast and go elsewhere to get our fix if need be. Is anybody listening?!?!
No joke. Speed2 has been out for awhile, and considering that there is less 4 and 2 wheel coverage on TV now, Speed2 would be an easy solution to make current customers (me) happy. Comcast, you really need to get on this. Every time I follow up only to find that there is no progress on this issue, it makes me want to change providers that much more.
