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 to clarify - Fox does the switch of programming from FS1 to FS2 - not Comcast.

 


And to clarify further, Comcast is the one NOT carrying FS2.


We do offer FS2 in a few markets. There is no new news to announce at this time regarding additional areas.

REALLY!!!!

 

To be more truthfull you should say that there are markets that have FS2 because it is a legacy contract and in point of fact Comcast has not "added" FS2 in a single market???? Just trying to keep things clear!!!

I've posted this before but maybe it needs a reposting?

When Comcast Ted says:

"We do offer FS2 in a few markets. There is no new news to announce at this time regarding additional areas."

 

Be aware that Comcast has NOT added FS2 to any of the markets that I'm aware of. The only markets that have FS2 are markets that Comcast has acquired and the legacy contract forces Comcast to honor the FS2 content.

 

I've asked repeatedly for Ted to give us a list of markets that have had FS2 "ADDED" to their available channels and to date I've not seen that list. I've been lead to believe that the answer is "zero"!

 

My personal belief is that you will see FS2 added to our channel lineup, the day after pigs are seen flying in formation, inverted!

Comcast doesn't program FS1 or FS2 or switch out of programming on these channels. That is done by Fox. 

 

 

 

 


I've been a Comcast customer for over 25 years and I find not having FS2 HD and BEIN Sport HD unacceptable. The problem is I have no choice because there are no broadband cable/internet alternatives at my house.

 

This is a reason I would switch after 25+ years because I cannot watch what I want either on TV or stream on the internet (Fox2Go). I pay for the service and in this case extra for sport package with the intent of watching what I want when I want. HD channels have been added that I have never or will never watch. 

 

Come on Comcast, provide the channels people want. If it costs more then provide them in a package.

Just to clarify...Comcast doesn't care about what any of it's customers think, and they never will as long as they keep getting their $$$$$$$$$$$$$. That's all that matters...

I think it's funny that some of NASCAR's xfinity series races are going to be on Fox Sports 2. Comcast won't be able to show the series they sponsor. That's a sound investment move comcast, paying for something nobody can watch. What's next, a 24 hour commercial channel? The sad part is there is no other cable provider in my area. We have been asking for this channel for two years, so I think it's safe to say comcast doesn't care what their customers think.

Comcast's motto should be "why listen to customers when they just keep paying us anyway"...💵💵💵💵💵💵💵💵💵💵💵💵
