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.

Comcast is not interested in what we say on this forum.

 

The only way to send a message is to drop comcast and change over to an alternate provider. 

 

Its actually not Comcast's fault that FS1 was created.  UFC was failing on Fuel TV, it failed to bring enough viewiers to make it worth the money for Comcast to pay the 0.23 cents per household or what ever.

 

so Fox knew they had an established station in speedtv that was in every home, so they used that as a trojan horse to create a new money making fake ESPN .called fs1  The only racing they will cover in the future is NASCAR since that is the only one ESPN covers.  FS2 is just Fuel and Fox can now let that one die since they are copying ESPN, and ESPN only shows the big races... for all other race fans just remember how bad Fox is, remember how they treated people in England, and remember, they dont give a bleep about us, nor does Comcast.

 

So speak with your wallet, ditch comast, ditch fox...  Speed was a small channel but for auto guys it was important.  pass time, nascar hub, dave despain's wind tunnel, nascar qualifying and practices..fox sports 1 is already a fail, fox sports 2 will never be on comcast, and fox will not clone espn's 0.80 cents per household..

Comcast release at:

 

http://xfinity.comcast.net/blogs/sports/2013/08/15/are-you-ready-for-fox-sports-1-and-2/

 

under the title it states

"XFINITY customers: FOX Sports 1 and 2, the newest sports networks from FOX, are headed your way. "

Then the whole release refers only to Fox Sports 1! Bizarre.

This is disgraceful on Comcast part. We pay soo much for cable and they don't deliver. FS2 is needed NOW. In addition, Bein Sport USA needs to be in HD like yesterday and not on SD (displying the HD sign is not the same)

Fox bought speed and then dropped the name to fox sports and created a 1-2 with it along with changing the format, they have begun to changed into a Espn type sports channel. Fact. Also fox sports 2 is on demand with UFC replays as of now, no other content is showing yet on my Dvr.

I just went to the fox sports NASCAR web site and clicked on the box where it says to find out what channel it is for your area and provider. When i did and submitted it brought up a i up a box to fill in to send to request Comcast to add fox sports 2 to the lineup. It appears Fox has heard and is helping to send requests to get Comcast to heed our requests. Everyone should do this and inundate Comcast with requests.

According to the TV listings, the ARCA race from Newton, IA is being replayed on FS1 on Sunday morning from 8 AM to 10 AM so at least it's on.

I just went to the Fox Sports site and goosed Comcast to add FS2 also.

 

It's probably the best way to lean on Comcast ------ EVERYBODY should do the same!

Sorry Guys, filling that form out on Fox isn't  going to matter to a hill of beans.

I must have filled that form out on Fuel TV website 50 times and it got me nothing.

The only thing that would send a clear message to comcast is if there was a mass  cancellation of services from around the country, but for many of us satellite is not an option and in my case I live in Philadelphia, the home of Xfinity corporate offices in the Comcast building no less, and there is some collusion between Xfinity and the City to keep Verizon FIOS out of the city. FIOS is all around the suburbs right up to the city line but does not enter Philadelphia.

Nice isn't it.

Your probably right, one guy complaining won't get you anywhere, but if we beat on them in

large numbers, from all parts of the country, it should get the message across.
