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.

I do see FS2 at the two channel positions you indicated on the TV tuner.  I have not delved into the broadcast format/resolution being delivered yet.

I saw where in Massachusetts, they received Fox Sports 2 in HD in the Boston area.

 

Are there any plans to launch the HD feed in additional markets at this time? It appears other areas that just got the channel only got it in SD, and that the HD feed wasn't added in the areas that already had the channel.

 

Considering the groundswell of discussion that has occurred about this channel for years, I would think many customers would be very happy to finally have this in HD.

Apologies for the issue and the experience that you described above.

 

I am seeing that Fox Sports 2 is available in your area on channel 177 and in HD on channel 843 as part of the Digital Preferred level of service (it should be available to you).

 

 Are you still having this issue? Are you seeing a black screen, blue screen, or an error message or were you not able to tune to this channel at all (does the box skip over that channel)? Is this happening on all your cable boxes or just one? Which one(s)? 

Thanks for any additional details that you are able to provide.

Very surprised, Comcast the largest Cable MSO, doesn't have a National Fox sports channel on their lineup. AT&T and their Cable competitior Time Warner/Charter does!! Watched it for years and I move get Comcast and lose it?

 

Its not a technical issue its money they make a deal with programmers to carry their channels for a certain price per subscriber. Obviously Comcast wanted to pay less and chose to drop FS2 in return.

 

Now if Comcast has added it to the lineup where and when, please list the systems and channels please? How about Lake Wales, FL?

 

People have this thread running for years but more people need to call customer service and tell them your going to disconnect. Tell them why no FS2 and see what they do. They will not add it but many of these calls will have the only chance of it getting added. Otherwise all the posts here will not do a thing. Upper management must belive or know they are and will lose subs. Cable and Satellite is very concerned with losing subs, especially these days. I will check when I move and if Comcast doesn't have FS2, I'll get AT&T.

Comcast recently added Fox Sports 2 (December 2017) to most all of the channel lineups in the states/areas listed below:

Alabama (Huntsville/Tuscaloosa/Gadsden)
Colorado
Delaware (southern two counties)
District of Columbia
Florida (Keys area)
Georgia (Atlanta area)
Indiana
Maine
Maryland
Massachusetts (Boston area)
Michigan
Minnesota
Missouri
New Hampshire
New Mexico
Oregon
South Carolina
Tennessee (Chattanooga area)
Virginia
Washington (Vancouver area)

In most areas where the channel has been added, affected customers have been notified of the specific channel number and level of service via messages on their monthly statements.

In most areas, this channel is not expected to be offered in HD at this time.

Fox Sports 2 is not currently scheduled to be added to Lake Wales, FL area at this time. Thanks for your patience.

I live in PG County, MD and was told we would get FS2; however, we don’t have it.  It is not in the channel lineup on the bill although it is listed in the TV guide.  The NASCAR season will soon start and I am extremely unhappy about the situation.  When can we expect this promised channel???

The issue for you is that FS2 is in Digital Preferred tier, you would need to upgrade your package and equipment to receive FS2 Ch737

Apologies. I checked directly with our team that handles programming and channels for this area and unfortunately, we don't have any current plans to add Fox Sports 2 in Seattle in the near term.
