FOX NEWS not working

FOX NEWS not working

The xfinity tv to go ap will not play FOX NEWS NETWORK, all other channels seem fine. Interesting way to block viewers from unbiased reporting.

Low and behold a reboot of my router corrected this issue. Any implied collaboration on any parties behalf to interfere with the delivery of the FOX NEWS CHANNEL Ihas been retracted and apologies offered for making such a statement.

Re: FOX NEWS not working

This is very interesting.  Since we got our X1 box in April, we haven't been able to record Fox News Channel to play back.  It records but playback only takes us to an ad.  How do we fix this.  Many Chats and calls have not corrected the problem.

It worked - but seriously - Why? Must this all be gone. ???

Re: FOX NEWS not working

I have been through the comcast gauntlet for months now to no solution. May I state that the one stream and the only stream that crashes on comcast internet is the "FOXNEWS" stream. It's (supposedly) beyond comcast control. This is total BS! I am paying hard (very hard) earned money to pay for this sevice. I want what I pay for. That's all.

 

I am now looking for a new ISP.

 

Thanks Comcast for a very, very frustrating experience.

Well Foxnews still drops off during HRC news, this is political favors going into the airwaves.  Yes, I rebooted the system router and PC, still not working.  Wish I could get another ISP, but like Obamacare, the list of providers around here.....is one.

Re: FOX NEWS not working

We have a simmilar problem with our cable box.  Fox news is the ONLY channel that causes us issues.  The video and audio gets jumpy/ jittery.   All other channels work fine.  The appearance is simmilar to what you see when you have insufficent bandwidth.  Seems odd that this is the only channel affected.  I was getting ready to file a complaint but first decided to see if I was the only one having issues.  I suspected I was not and I also suspect there are many more affected consumers than the few who have spoken up here.

Re: FOX NEWS not working

I am experiencing the same problem... can't get Fox News, but ALL other channels seem to work.  This has happened on my system several times since I converted to X1 several months ago.   I am able to access the Fox News LD channel using an old adaptor, but haven't been able to access Fox HD channel for the past 12 hours.

I've had 2 different appointments about this and both times they would say it's fixed to only find the same problem reappear later the same day.  The last technician that came to the house said the signal is fine all the way to the house, but at the same time he said the signal is not reaching the box intact.  He made the comment that if it happens again, I would have to start trying to replace the cable lines in the house.  So let me get this straight, the cabling in my house works just fine for every other channel (and I have premium) except Fox News Channel.  How about I take my $280+/month bill and go somewhere else that doesn't filter content.  Pathetic.

Re: FOX NEWS not working

It just started with my tv today, both of them. Tried chat and didn't work. They want to send a tech back out. My x1 boxes are a month old and why only fox news?

Re: FOX NEWS not working

Exactly. I've have the new wireless technology installed about two months ago. One month ago, only Fox News HD channels begin pixelation... Channels. 950 and 1110. Channel 51 (non HD) works fine. I called for a tech but before he arrived, everything cleared up. Now, one month later, same thing. I've reset every device and unplugged everything. Every other channel works fine. This must be Comcast choking down this particular channel stream because of high usage. It better stop and now or I too will be looking for another provider.

Re: FOX NEWS not working

It has nothing to do with cables. I am at the beach in Mexico. All other channels work, Fox News reporting is interrupted by blue commercial screen promising to come back right after the break. However, the break might last more than 20 minutes and you can clearly see that parts of the program are cut off. It just makes me wonder if there are specific people behind that issue...
