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.

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

 

Just sayin'


It will be a lot less difficult starting mid-December. Fox Sports 2 is coming to the channel lineup in your area on 12/19. Thanks for your patience.

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. 


"This channel is not expected to be offered in HD at this time."

 

Bravo! I guess we will have to wait another 4 years for HD.

 

(I just laugh and shake my head.)

My understanding is that Xfinity doesn't carry FS2 - has that changed?
