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.

As pointed out above, looks like I can live stream it on FOX Sports Go or Facebook or possibly IMSA will rebroadcast Petite Le Mans at some point.   That is good to know.  But the best customer service would be for FS1 and FS2 to offered in the Chicago area so that I could simply DVR the entire race and watch it when I have the time.   Knowing that these events are split between networks and only offering some customer the benefit of having both channels is an extremely bad business practice on Comasts part.  Solution: Add FS2 to Chicago channel lineup.

Just to clear up any confusion, IMSA announced last week that we will be able to see the entire race (Petite Le Mans) streamed on Fox Sports Go, regardless of whether or not we are provided FS2 by Comcast. This is an exception to the normal situation where .unless you currently have FS2, you cannot stream programming on Fox Sports Go that is carried on FS2 .

IMSA is throwing us a bone after years of FOX and Comcast not really caring whether or not we receive the channels we disire.

Hey Comcast when will you be adding Fox sports 2 to the new Jersey area. This is bull!!! With all the nonsense channels you offer why not offer one more channel that covers action sports. Couldn't even stream on Fox sports app bc it was blocked even though I signed in with my Xfinity account. So hey Xfinity what can we do to get this channel added to the lineup???????

I just missed the Monster Energy Cup with Supercross. It is a big event and I don't agree with it not being shown on a major network so everyone can watch it. You would think that xFinity would have FS2 considering how much money they charge us monthly. I'm considering going back to Direct Tv.

Ya I pay over $200 a month for internet, cable,and home phone and I just had to drive 35 minutes to my parents house to watch Monster Energy Cup Supercross because I dont get FS2 (but I get FS1...confusing). And while I was there watch about 5 ATV motocross races I had them DVR for me because I dont get MAV TV channel either. Considering my parents pay less than half of what I do with Direct TV and I'm upgraded to X1 Platform, I think Comcast should at minimum offer the channels Direct TV does.

So I'm all set up to watch the Petite Le Mans. Got my coffee. The first hour, so far so good. Second hour, a fricking college football game starts. IMSA lied. Either that or Comcast and Fox Sports lied to IMSA. Sorry to anyone who I told would be able to watch the race in it's entirety. I didn't know that we were being lied to. I guess that's just the way it is in todays modern discourse. I just went with what I was told.

Are there any plans to bring FS2 to Jacksonville? I'm a big Australian Rules fan, yet FS2 is the main place they carry it alongside Fox Soccer Plus (which, you guessed it, if you don't get FS2, that won't come up either even with Fox Sports GO). Not to mention other big soccer matches I cover for a podcast get bumped to FS2. I've been a Comcast/Xfinity customer for some 15 years, so I would love for this to be rectified so I avoid shopping around and going elsewhere.

I upped my plan to the Sports Package so I could get the various ESPN outlets to follow F1.  I went to FS2 that is on my cable system only to be told 'Not Authorized'.  Bull droppings!

Apologies, we don't have any additional areas to announce just yet for Fox Sports 2.  I have shared your request and passion with the right teams here at Comcast.

So b/c I live in NJ I'm not able to get FS2? I most likely pay higher taxes than anyone else...what a crime. I'm moving.

I'm sorry you do not get FS2 in NJ. A day late and a dollar short, I opened my bill this month an found out that we are getting FS2 in standard def only. My first thought? Hooray? At LAST!!? No, none of those. It was "meh". 

 

You see, my interest in being able to receive FS2 was predicated on the fact I would be able to see more motorsports. Every year that the 24 hours of Daytona comes around, or the Le Mans 24 hours, Fox would show the first hour or two on FS1, or on their main broadcast affilliate. Then the rest of the race, on year including the finish, was bumped to FS2 so they could show a NCAA DIvision 20 game of tiddly winks on FS1. 

 

Fox is now getting out of the motorsports buisiness. Rumor has it that even NASCAR is on it's way out at FOX. Gone is the "Hollywood Hotel" travelling studio, bringing the insight of another set of hosts to each race. Now they'll be at a central location, like the talking heads during the football broadcasts. Word is that when the next contract is up for grabs, NASCAR will be looking for a single media company, probably NBC. 

 

So now, with FS2 available in December, I'll be able to watch a tractor pull from Cornville Iowa, or a pig race from anywhere in Oklahoma.

That leaves me here, after....I don't know how many posts I've made on this topic..for four years now, at a point where I really don't care any more. I now have more racing to watch than I can possibly keep up with, thanks to YouTube and series run streaming packages, and all this without commercial breaks. To all who still regret not being able to access FS2, keep up the good fight, there may be something you want to see on FS2; however as I've made clear, IMOHO.....You aren't missing anything.

Needless to say, this is my final word on the matter: "meh".

I live in Lynchburg, VA now. I moved from Louisville. I have always had FS2 and now I don’t see it in my lineup. I don’t even remember ever having a problem not getting a channel with AT&T or TIME WARNER so why now? Come to think of it I don’t get ID either which is Investigative Discovery. When I go to the options page to add channels it’s not on any list. Please add this channel. I am huge UFC fan and I’m missing out. I shouldn’t have to go to a friends house to watch my favorite program. I will have to switch carriers soon.
