The Duke is right. Back in 2012 when BeIN won the broadcast rights for La Liga, Ligue1 and Serie A the soccer community bombarded Comcast with requests for BeIN to be added to their channel lineup. There were two primary threads related to that requests and each had over six thousand requests. If you love soccer and want to see the best playing in HD then you have to let Comcast know, if if it's just something short and sweet like, "Please carry BeIN in HD."
Spanish League started!! I'm ready! I have my sport package, my HD comcast box, my HD Samsung Tv..... but wait it's that Fc barcelona or toronto fc? I can't tell because it looks so bad!!
So let's get out the macbook air and the hdmi adapter open safari go to xfinity.tv live streaming click on Bein Sports on 720p put my tv on hdmi 2 feed turn off my cable box... Well it does look a little better.. but wait the feed just froze.. oh now it's back ... oh wait it pixelating.. oh there were go again..
Should I cancel my comcast tv service and just pay for the Dish app?
Another year has passed and still no HD channel for BeIN sport? What's going on?
La Liga kicked off this past weekend and my HD TV was useless as was forced to watch Lionel Messi and Co. in olow res and out of focus.
Comcast...there have meen many many posts about this and no replies or action.
You are on the verge of losing yet another customer if you don't address this glaring ommission.
Get BEIN sport in HD.
I agree with the lack of HD programming. At my home down south where I have TWC I have 12 HBO and 23 MAX channels, with only a couple in SD all others HD. And with the SD service, the signal quality is almost equal to that of HD - its that good.
Had DireccTV, which provided bein sport in HD. Switched to Comcast with the understanding the bein sport was offered. Didn't realize till after the swtich that the channel was not in HD. That was a trememendous disappointment. At this point i won't switch to Verizon, which does carry the channel in HD, but i'll definitely conisder the change when my contract is up, unless Comcast adds BeinSport in HD. They have about a year to improve.
I am having the same issue in Seattle its even 720p (not HD for sure). Also, Comcast only provide it in Spainsh.I just joined comcast and started to miss my At&t Uverse service. Had to watch Milan Juventus game streaming.
I just got Comcase service in Seattle with the Sport Package. I was shocked to see that Comcase doesn't have BeIN sport in English, they only provide it in Spanish. I wasn't able to watch my favourite team (AC Milan) important game against Juventus in the Italian Seria A league (happening now).The Spanish Channel is broadcasting some weak game in the Spanish league becasuse BeIN sport in English is broadcasting AC Milan game.
Also, the channel that they offer is neither 720p nor 1080 (not HD for sure).
I am starting to miss my previose service with At&t Uverse.
BeIN Sport is now number 1 sport channel for soccer fans. It is very ignorant of Comact to not conisder this segment of customers.
It might be a matter of time before I cancel my service and switch to other company.
I would pay $5 for the sports package but I see the channel is not offered in HD. Huge fail. Won't pay for the $5 service until they offer BEIN in HD
There is an ongoing thread with the same requests... Here is my post:
I am very frustrated like everyone else for the NO feedback from Comcast... So no Bein HD and no Bein connect .. What are my other options besides Comcast ? Anything cheaper? .. I pay over $150 a month for cable including Sports package and Latino package (just for the sports channels even though I don't speak spanish !) but I am seriouly thinking of switching over.. what alternatives do I have ? Thanks
Does anyone know why comcast STILL does not carry BEIN sport HD? Everyone I talked to has switched to other carriers to watch the best soccer leagues in the world. It doesn't make any sense. I've been asking any customer service agent I can get ahold of for the last 2 years why this channel isn't carried in HD. I unfortunately don't have the luxury of switching to dish because my building has a contract with comcast.
COMCAST - PLEASE BRING BEIN SPORTS HD TO THE CHANNEL LINEUP!!!!!!!!!!!!
Please provide HD for BeIn Sports. I pay close to $200/month for this! It's the only channel I watch my Barcelona Team. Please do update us with HD. Or I will quit comcast very soon.
I have been waiting patiently Comcast for almost 2 years now and still no BEIN in HD. What do we need to do as customers to get a good football/soccer channel with a viewing option that is not hard on our eyes?
Everyone that wants BIEN in HD please KUDO the poster.. lets give comcast visibility of this POST.. BEIN in HD BEIN in HD BEIN in HD BEIN in HD BEIN in HDBEIN in HD BEIN in HD BEIN in HD BEIN in HD BEIN in HD BEIN in HD
Let's get 100 KUDOs on this tread..c'mon.. all you "viewers" Kudo this post please and show comcast this is what we want and want it now.
We got 450+ views.. please KUDO this post..for BEIN in HD.
I'm brand new to this forum because I have had similar frustrations as the others in this feed. Perhaps I'm naive, but I contacted Comcast Tech Support to submit a request to deliver BeInSports in HD. She took down my information and submitted my request for tracking purposes. She said as more subscribers contact Comcast Tech Support also requesting this service Comcast will view the number of requests and determine if there is a high enough demand warranting delivery. I asked how many have asked for something similar since I read so many requests through this forum. She said I was the first. That was obviously surprising. I asked how they gather the numbers of requests since they would all have to be directed to the same central type of request to obtain a true number of requests. Frankly, I didn't get a satisfactory answer. If anyone else has already contacted Comcast Tech Support, please let me know so I can deal with them and their gathering process. Thank you.
FIOS- Carries these in HD.
BEIN SPORTS ENGLISH
BEIN SPORTS Spanol
and all movie networks in HD.. we stuck with one of each. Even this stupid post box doesn't allow you to put a sad smile face..
This is crazy. They have in the 200s some of the same HD channels in the 800s ...why? they will say to help customer find things easier? so you have them in two locations? that's comcast's easy solution.. really.
Could not say it any better...soccer (anything really) in SD is horrible. we had 2 HD soccer channels, lost GolTv in HD and no replacement. Now Bein has the Spanish, French, and Italian leagues...plus other cup games. Also only major provider to not be listed on beinsportsconnect. What a joke.
I watched the Chelsea/Liverpool game yesterday on BeIN Sport in SD and it was pathetic. I could barely make out the players. We need BeIN Sport in HD!
You would think that the "HD Technology Fee" under Bundled Services would cover all these negotiations as we (customers) are paying for it, since it's include on our bill
Please add in HD.
Comcast is scaming everyone for no apparant reason because if you go on BeIN's website (and I also called and talked to them) they specifically tell you that "we offer BeIN HD to all networks but it's up to them whether they give it to you or not". BeIN has no control over this but they encourage us to request HD if we have not already. As far as Im concerned, Comcast is the only TV network that doesn't offer BeIN HD
