Cannot watch Fox News Live over the internet on Comcast

Cannot watch Fox News Live over the internet on Comcast

Why is Fox News Live not available to watch on my Computer,  iPad or iPhone. I pay for the service on XFinity (which is my only cable choice which I HATE!) and I want to watch Fox News Live on all my devices just like I do for CNN, ESPN and many other channels. What's the issue and when will Comcast allow us to watch Fox News Live on our computers, mobile and tablet devices?

Not a expert,just someone living in a Comcast only community. Comcast Owens NBC. Why would Comcast let you watch Fox News. No reason to let people have a free choice of news services. If we have a choice its less money to Comcast.

Comcast does not have a streaming agreement with Fox. You might want to drop a note to Comcast corporate customer service (we_can_help@cable.comcast.com) and let them know you want the service.

you don't understand the issue. i Do pay for Fox news as part of my Xfinity service. Xfinity allows live streaming for CNN, and other channels. My research on this issue points to the fact that the CEO of Comcast Has blocked live streaming of Fox News live for political reasons. Every other cable provider other than Xfinity in the US allows live streaming

Odd -- that page doesn't seem to mention "Fox News". Maybe I missed it?

There's "Access to content on Fox’s websites and applications", which would appear to have some relation to what's discussed here, along with the following:

 

“This unprecedented TV Everywhere agreement enables us to take advantage of the innovative technologies and platforms we’ve developed to deliver the best content to our customers,” said Greg Rigdon, exec VP of content acquisition for Comcast Cable. “Together with Fox, thanks to the leadership of Peter Rice, Mike Hopkins and his team, for the first time we are unlocking the value of some of Fox’s best content by making it available to Xfinity TV customers through new applications and devices.”

 

Furthermore, it deomonstrates that there isn't some sort of a conpiracy or that Comcast owning NBC has some sort of an impact on who they deal or don't deal with or anything like that.

Drawing any specific conclusions from such a vague statement is risky, especially when so much of the statement is "Press Release Boilerplate".

 

I see no conspiracy, but I see no "Comcast will be streaming Fox News" either.
