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.

Need the channel Fox Sports 2 (FS2). This is where you watch the FIA - WEC auto racing series. How can we get this in the 19805 (etc.) area ? Wilm., De. area ?

Wow, 33 pages and still no FS2 on Comcast... What a joke!

 

To illustrate how LAME Comcast is this is what I know for fact... In Eastern WA, Walla Walla to be specific FS2 is available on Charter Cable there I watched it while at a BnB! In Southern CA my father-in-law has FS2 through Time Warner cable and he probably has the CHEAPEST channel package he could get!!!

 

Yet here in Seattle the home of one of the biggest soccer markets Comcast refuses to deliver FS2. They raise rates and they add NOTHING. They make excuses about contracts, costs and having to raise rates to offer this channel. It's all nonsense... FS2 is clearly available in other markets and it's not in some “high priced/ we have to gouge you even more” sports tier package.

 

WAKE UP COMCAST... GET FS2!

Welcome to the Real World, Neo.

We have been here for the past three or four years asking Comcast the same thing. Still in negotiations, and we are still waiting. Comcast Ted told us once if we don't like it, leave. Ok, we are chum and churn to Comcast. Say the magic word and we will lower your rate.
As long as we keep paying our bills, why should they change? It's just business. They have a monopoly and they know we are hooked.
Let me also say that there is a change in the wind. There is some competition on the way. Then, they will be ready when enough customers change to some other provider. Hang in there!

If you are a Comcast customer, probably never!  They keep blaming each other and pointing fingers to the other claiming they are the hold up.  But this is a question sports fans have asked for years!  I have stopped watching some auto races because they will air the 1st half on FS1 and send viewers to FS2 to see the rest!  Isn't that awful??

As far as I know, you have to have FS2 in your television package in order to watch FS2 programming on Fox Sports Go.  As a three year veteran of this fight, I, and most of us who have been on this thread since the beginning have already tried the FSgo workaround.  I'm sure COMCAST TEDS or whoever will chime in and confirm this.

You have it correct. 

 

The current contract terms with Fox only allow online access to Fox Sports 2 for customers who have that channel (Fox Sports 2) in their level of service.

That is how most all cable networks operate and this situation is fairly standard across all video providers.

Below from the Fox Sports Go site: http://msn.foxsports.com/foxsportsgo/

 

Live streams of all the FOX Sports Networks are available at no additional cost to fans who receive FOX Sports as part of their TV subscription through participating TV providers. If you get FOX Sports 1, FOX Sports 2, and FOX sports regional channels at home, you've got access!

That's exactly what I did. I left and now can enjoy FS2 and BeIN sports in HD...plus about 40 other HD sports channels. Comcast is a joke.

Some will remember back in the 60s and 70s when the phone and TV companies were trying to get "Right of Way" rights and to force Phone companies to allow cable to use their Right of Way rights - or something like that, the cable companies said TV would be almost "Free" because the advertisers would pay the bill.  That didn't last long when they figured out they could charge the customers for everything.   Of course that was probably the plan from the beginning!  Now, for a mid range TV package without any premium channels except Encore, HD, internet and phone service and the bill is over $200!  That's a friggen car payment.  I am very close to cutting the cable and doing without.  Of course I'll probably want Internet... can't hardly do without it.

When will Comcast/Xfinity be adding FS2 to the channel lineup? It looks like Dish and Direct TV both carry this channel, but not Comcast. Pretty much the only reason I have cable is to watch sports and my favorite sport to watch is MMA which is often shown on FS2 and no where else. I understand the same is true with NASCAR. It's very frustrating for sports fans to miss all this programming despite paying large TV premiums especially when other providers carry this.

Adding my voice: I'm a Bundesliga fan and Fox shows more games on FS1 than 2. Add FS2 to the Richmond, VA market ASAP please!!! Verizon FiOS has it in town already. So...I have options. Add or I will switch.

Might as well switch.  Comcast really doesn't give a toss about the loss of one account.  People have been threatening to do this since FS2 came into being (me among them).  I've found workarounds so I can watch whatever I want (three letters: VPN).  Right now I'm watching the Petit Le Mans, with Radio LeMans commentary, and no commercial breaks.  Good luck.

Comcast hasn't added channels for a long time and it appears what we have it all we'll ever have.
