Fox Sports 2

As a NASCAR fan, I was afraid that I would not be able to see the same racing events that I used to see on Speed when they rebranded the channel this past weekend.  I was just proven correct.  I now won't be able to see the Whelan Modified race that is airing on FoxSports 2 from Bristol tonight as Comcast doesn't have Fox Sports 2 in the channel lineup.  I was able to watch it last year when it was on Speed.

 

I strongly encourage Comcast to rectify this situation and add Fox Sports 2 to the lineup.  If I can't watch the things I want to watch because the channel isn't available, then I'm going to look for a cable provider who can provide it.

Just scheduled Direct TV install, FS2 is available there along with quite a few other channels Comcast does not offer, and at a lower price.  Once its in, goodbye Comcast.  You had enough time to figure this out and dropped the ball yet again.

I am beyond furious.  With the amount of money I pay, its ridiculous that FS2 is not on my programming.  Like a fool, I called customer service thinking they might know something but I would have been better off calling the post office and asking them. If Comcast does not get this resolved soon I will be spending my money elsewhere.

I know how that went.....

"unplug the power from the back of your cable box for 3 minutes.  Then plug it back in, power it up and I'll send a test signal to it......... I see that your service is working fine.   Do you have the channel now?"

ROLEX Grand Am is being re-aired today on FS1.  Looks like somebody got the message.  Better than nothing I guess.  I verified this on the Comcast Infinity TV schedule.  It would be nice if they announced this somewhere.

 

RGA schedules at the links;

And yesterdays Continental race will be re-aired on 8/25, FS1, 3PM

It does in certain markets. I'm in Minneapolis and have Fox Sports 2. The key is the market must be a former Time-Warner or Adelphia system Comcast acquired after the latter went bust and Comcast and the former divvied up its assets while trading markets in the process. For instance, Minneapolis and many of its immediate suburbs had Fuel TV via Time-Warner, kept it after the Comcast switch over, even as longer term Comcast parts of town didn't have it and never got it later, and now have Fox Sports 2 as a result.

That said, Fuel TV was and now Fox Sports 2 is in SD only. Come on Comcast, it's time to offer this channel in HD.

The Chicago area does not get Fox 2 or Mav TV. There is going to be lots of NASCAR stuff on both of these channels. When will we get them? My Direct TV has both in Wisconsin. Come on Comcast.

Like most everything these days, it's all about $$$. Adding the channels would mean higher costs somewhere. Odds are, FS2 and/or MavTV would end up in S&E to replace Speed and Fox Soccer being moved to Starter (as FS1 and FXX.)

It's absurd that we don't receive Fox Sports 2. I pay $270/month in fees and they won't deliver a major channel to the line up that customers have been asking for by the thousands (just look at all the posts on this). AT&T U-Verse here I come. Enough is enough.
