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.

Guys, please don't waste your breath - this is pointless.

From the day FS2 was introduced we are asking, begging, cursing, appealing, pleading, requesting... and Comcast spits in our faces with that “submit your formal request" bs.

 

THEY DON’T CARE – don’t you get it?

 

Their lineup is almost up to Ch.2000 now – some of them totally useless plus duplicates and triplicates, so if they would ever considered adding FS2, they would have done it a long time ago.

It may be me, but watching FS2 legally shouldn't be this difficult. 

 

Just sayin'

There are several of us that would love to see FS2. I believe it will not happen in my lifetime. Other channels will get priority over it. All of us pay lots of money for this product, but Xfinity/Comcast refuses to budge on this one channel.
On another channel I would love to see would be RFD/TV and to get Country Music Classics again but no up charge!

What Xfinity package has Fox Sports 2?
I have Digital Starter 140+ channels which includes FS1. "Your Channel lineup " says I have 221HD channels, When I try to find FS2, Channel finder states "you do not access to this channel, you need Digital Preferred, Digital Preferred Plus or Digital Premium", how do I get one of these?

Check your GUIDE, or if you have X1, type in "FS1."

Don’t look for it anytime soon. Internet is great. Drop cable and go for a streaming service. Much cheaper. And YouTube TV and Hulu both carry local channels. I’m very happy with YouTube TV. It was good enough to switch me over from Hulu. And Comcast only offered me FS2 in SD. Now I get them all in HD with YouTube TV. And unlimited DVR. Cable is dying. Fast. And for good reason.

That is the way to go! Watch Comcast will come out with a comparison service to keep its subscribers, its a matter of time

Actually Comcast is already working on a streaming only service. Though I highly doubt that it will include channels from it's higher priced cable tiers. Don’t have that issue with YouTube TV. And I’m not restricted to watching ANY channels only on my home network.

Alas! I just read on my monthly bill (of course, after the sticker shock wore off) that FS2 will be available in my area, Minneapolis/Saint Paul, Minnesota, beginning on December 19, 2017; channels 740 and 1209 (I assume one of which will be HD, but you never know with these clowns). Merry Christmas, I guess. It's only been four years, roughly forty-eight monthly bills. However, I'm not convinced that FS2 is actually Fox Sports 2. It could just be another ploy. 

 

US fails to qualify for the World Cup. Fox paid all that money to gain the broadcast rights, and the US does not qualify. Good luck with those 0.8 million viewers, about 1/30 of what the ratings were in 2014 (although I'll likely be one of them; go Argentina!).

 

In a way, that is poetic justice.

Yes, Fox Sports 2 is scheduled to be added in many areas this year including Minnesota on December 19th.

 

I'll add some additional locations and targeted dates to this thread next.

 

Thanks for your patience.
