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.

LOL!  Shows up in my mailbox as a "solution".  Coming up on 4 years since Comcast promised FS1 & FS2 when SPEED went away.  Guess they don't want to rush into anything.

 

So glad I got rid of them and have Wave Broadband now.  I enjoy both FS1 & FS2 in HD anytime and my bill is cheaper.

Comcast, I would like to know when the channel line up will change? Comcast, you have fed us the same line for four going on five years. Comcast, you are forcing us to watch the same channels year after year.
Wonder why people are cutting the cord, Comcast? More channels, less money and more entertainment. Give us a break, I wish I could believe you.
Comcast, you need to compromise with Fox so you lose fewer customers through chum and churn. Let us know when you have a real solution, Comcast. We are tired of smoke and mirrors. The reasons you give are absolutely unbelievable. Americans are a gullible lot. Some of us have woke up, and we are not going to take it anymore.

I can't believe they have the (spheres) to claim that this is "solved".  Won't be solved until they offer FS2.

"Solved" means case closed (to put it bluntly)

Uh no this is not a resolved issue ComcastTeds.
Until the full compliance and offerings to all the major markets that had speed channel has been completed is only when you can claim this issue on the thread resolved.
It's extremely sad and unfortunate for the customers to denied access to FS2 across all the major markets while your company continues expansion into wireless services that have no bearing on what actual people want.
So did you complete the buyout of a wireless cell carrier yet? I'm sure it happens before I see FS2

Apologies all, not sure how or who marked the earlier post as the solution. I removed that designation from the post.

I still miss not having FS2 but that horse has been beaten ad naseum without any sign of a resolution.  An additional frustration with sports on TV in general - tried to watch the Indy500 last Sunday,  I don't normally watch them go around in circles (OK, ovals) but I wanted to see how F1 driver Alonso would do.  Unfortunately, NBC (might have been ABC) Sports stopped airing the  race at 180 of 200 laps!!  Talk about FRUSTRATING!   On top of that, I tried to DVR the America's Cup race and got a black screen the whole 3 hours!  Aaarrgggg!  And soon, my most favorite of all sporting events, the 24 Hr of LeMans, will run in a week or 2  - but as usual I expect Comcast/NBCsp/ FS1/ or who ever is pulling the strings to put 1/2 of the race on a channel I have access to and the other half on one I don't!!  Again, AAArrrrgggg! (I know, I said the FS1/FS2 thing had been covered but this is a particularily sensitive subject with me)

RE Le Mans.  If you go to the WEC website, you can purchase a Le Mans only package, not sure how much, but reasonable.  I purchase the whole WEC season including Le Mans for 30EU.  I can live stream the whole races without any commercial interruptions, and commentary is by John Hindaugh and Alan McNish, of Radio LeMans.  Louis Becket is the pit lane reporter.  For LeMans, they bring in more comentators, including Grahm Goodwinn.  It's a much better way to watch the race, start to finish.  If you have a smart TV, you can airplay it onto the TV, so you don't have to watch your laptop the whole race.  Last Saturday, I also watched the 24 hours of the Nurburgring.  Turned out to be an exciting race.

That being said, if you get hooked on streaming races, it's going to cut into your data allowance (1024Gb)  For an extra $50.00 you can switch to unlimited data, so not a problem.  I called comcast and told them my cable bill (Triple Play) is already obscene, and the agent worked the numbers and got me into a different package than I had, which gives me all the premium movie channels, unlimited data, and no rental fee for the DVR, and I ended up paying less than I was before.  It's worth a try.  I don't miss FS2 at all now.  All the racing I want to see is either on YouTube, or through streaming packages like the one I mentioned with the WEC.  I have another one with Virgin Australia Supercars.  Get to see all the races, including Bathurst 1000, complete w/o commercial interruption.

I too missed the last twenty laps of the Indy 500 because I had recorded it.  It's available now on YouTube.   Good luck.

Though I'm in a market that has FS2, it's in SD. I'm back to 200 down internet only and Hulu with Live TV. Saving over $100 a month. Works beautifully on Apple TV 4.

I can't wait much longer for comcast to get FS2. DirectTV does have FS2 and I may be forced to move if this channel if not in the lineup soon.

Call Donald Trump maybe he could negotiate between Fox and Comcast.

Still baffles me that Xfinity sponsors a Nascar series yet doesn't provide a channel that their practices and qualifying often air on.
