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.

Today (06/25/2017), I again received notification of a solution to the lack of FS2 problem.  In checking it out, I am taken back to Page 1 of this 35 page discussion.   How is that a solution??  The only thing nearly as annoying as not receiving FS2 is continually being notified that there is a solution when in fact there is none.  The only acceptable fix is an announcement that FS2 is now available and until that happens, kindly stop the misleading "solution" notifications.

I'm gonna say it one more time. Ditch cable. Go with a streaming service. I highly recommend Hulu with Live TV. Get the channels you want for less money. Comcast has great internet. I consistently get 240 down. Their cable and equipment charges are outrageous. Get the channels you want and save some money on the process.

We have been wondering and asking the same things for YEARS ever since Comcast dropped Speed, etc.  Direct TV offers FS1 and FS2 but it requires rental of the top level package.

 It's a shame but we cannot expect to ever see FS2,

That's why I keep saying dump cable and get a streaming service. Best channels. Cheaper pricing.

I'm going to miss the Concacaf Gold Cup soccer matches tonight because there's no Fox Sports 2 in my area.[or in most others]

OK we should be able to add the FS2 app to our app portion of the Xfinity selection.

What Tier??? FS2 and David Bowie's space oddity are in the same tier.  Not to dump on Pharrell, but there are THIRTY-SIX (36) pages of discussion (and counting).  The vast majority of us cannot get FS2 through Comcast nor are we likely to ever get it.  I dumped Comcast due to high cost, number of channels I will never, ever watch and the lack of FS2.  Well, I recently got married and, guess what, she had Comcast.  The bright side is my spam e-mail continues to be directed to my comcast e-mail account.  I periodically log in here to see what y'all are saying.   

The fix is we all mark posts from ComcastTeds and ComcastAmir as "solutions",  pencil whip it so this is "solved".

to quote from the above link:

You'll need the following to get started:

  • A subscription to XFINITY TV that includes the network you want to watch.

pretty sure you will find if you don't have FS2 in your area, in your package and available to you on your TV, you still won't get it. I do not get FS2 via Comcast's TV Go App.  Please, please, if you have found a work around or a loophole, do share details.

 

I just checked my app

https://www.xfinity.com/support/cable-tv/live-tv-streaming/

which still does NOT show FS2.

a quote from comcast.

Does live TV streaming with the XFINITY Stream app/XFINITY Stream portal include all channels?
When connected to your in-home XFINITY network, you can watch all the channels on your lineup (i.e., those included with your XFINITY TV subscription) through the XFINITY Stream app and portal, with the exception of pay per view or Adult channels. Outside the home, over 200 channels and over 40,000 TV shows and movies from your lineup will be available for live streaming.

 

Now, I am still pretty much convinced that, while "TV Everywhere" and XFinity streaming are different, when you try to log into a content provider with your Comcast information, if you do NOT have FS2, you will NOT be able to view FS2.

 

I do not find TV Everywhere as a distinct app.  Again, if anyone finds a workaround or can show I am wrong, please post.

Thanks,

Me

Apologies. I am looking into this now with our California team to get clarification.

 

Where did you see/hear that Fox Sports 2 is available to you online and via mobile?  Thanks for any additional information that you are able to provide.
