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.

Once again Comcast has failed to aid their customers. High paying customers. I am waiting for the UFC Prelims and the MLB playoffs are running late and that is fine. My problem is Fox is running a scoll telling its viewers that the UFC can be seen on FS2. Unless you are a Comcast chump like myself you will be watching the programming you PAID for.

True - except those of us who weren't watching the baseball game thought everything was okay with our recording.  Then when we went to watch the prelims and the main event we found out we missed both.  Hopefully FS1 will reshow the whole event soon.

For the soccer fans out there especially The US Women's Team..

 

FIFA has given the Women's World Cup  tv rights to fox insted of ESPN.

Why?  I assume greed and money.

 

Without FS2 we will miss at least half of the games.

I just switched to xfinity TV a week ago. I am a racing and MMA fan and am extremely disappointed that Fox Sports 2 is not available. I am stunned that Comcast doesn’t carry this major sports channel. Is Comcast that far behind all of the other TV providers? 

I may need to switch another provider if this channel is not added to the channel lineup in the very near future. It is a good thing that Comcast has a 30 day satisfaction guarantee that will allow me to switch to another provider that has all of the major sporting channels available.

The worst part is I was told that this channel was available when I made switched to Comcast!

By all means switch. If more customers would do this, MAYBE Comcast would get the message. I cannot switch "right now" as I'm in a 2 year "promotion" and they will bang me for the $250 we got up front. BUT you can bet your "sweet roll BUNS" that I'm moving on when the contract is over. I'll beat them up for a good price on VOIP & Internet & take the Television to another provider.

I wouldn't hold your breath. COMCAST's own press release from August 2013 stated that Fox Sports 1 AND Fox Sports 2 were coming since SREED Channel was going away. Here we are over a year later and we still don't have Fox sports 2.

What is really crazy is Xfinity is sponsoring the nationwide NASCAR race next year. Some of the qualifying and practice events are always on Fox sports 2. So here they're going to be the sponsor for the second largest NASCAR series and we won't even be able to see it because hey don't carry the channel.

Maybe next year?

"One speed bump: Xfinity does not carry Fox Sports 2 on its cable systems, which the company hoped to have straightened out in time for 2015."

I may stand corrected on this BUT I believe Fox has an ongoing contract for the Nationwide Series, which next year will be the Xfinity Series? Interesting to see this weeks Nationwide Qualifying will be on FS-2 !!!  Just will prove interesting to see what Comcast does about that little "problem" in 2015!!!
