does Comcast offer the channels from DirecTV "sports package"?

DirecTV offers a "sports pack" lineup add-on that includes extra Comcast Sports and FOX Sports channels:

Does Comcast offer a similar package?  The Comcast Sports package that I see only has a few channels and I don't see the regional FOX channels - those channels carry a lot of the College games I want to watch.

In Seattle the Sports & Entertainment package includes the Fox College Sports Atlantic, Central, and Pacific channels.

Yeah but however those Fox channels aren't the regional ones that is being asked out (ie: Fox Sports North, Comcast Sports New England, etc).

That's true (and unfortunate) -- I just posted what is available.

IIRC there was rumors of the regional channels being added down the road on Comcast. Of course that means Comcast will have a good excuse to raise the price on the sports & entertainment package.
