I have/had requested Fuel TV many times in the past, and now with the switch over to Fox Sports 2 Comcast needs to provide this channel more than ever. as stated by posters previously for the fees and charges that are billed every month by Comcast there is no reason for Fox Sports 2 to not be available. I am a huge motorcycle racing fan and Fox Sports 1 does a huge slap in the face to us all by airing all three MotoGP races live from Indianapolis on the opening weekend of the network to try and keep viewers, then goes and decides to air Moto3 races on Fox Sports 2 for the rest of the season and hardly cover MotoGP or Moto2 on FS1 whatsoever.
This is complete BS and a huge disservice to customers, especially those where Comcast has a monopoly on cable television (Tallahassee, FL) but if need be I will switch over to Dish or DirectTV.
It makes no sense that I cant receive FS2, but LOGO, Oprah and Style channel are readily available.
I've already posted several times on this thread. Here's the deal: Comcast does not use these forums for feedback, they merely moniter them to keep trolls out and such. If you want FOX SPORTS 2, you need to contact COMCAST. Any post here or elsewhere in these forums is just preaching to the choir. COMCAST will not do anything until enough people contact them. I've already done so, till I'm blue in the face. Now it's your turn.
I'm just figuring all this out. Big race in Atlanta this weekend (NASCAR) and Friday coverage on FS! DOES include practice and qualifying. BUT...Check it out on NASCAR.com... Saturday, EVERYTHING Nationwide and Cup is on FS2 during the day. NO truck series practice or qualifying is being shown at all, (maybe because its in Canada?). Come on, no truck qualifying. The trucks is a great series. It should only make sense that when Fox started the process of buying into SPEED and FUEL, that Comcast needed to negotiate for FS2. It's not just NASCAR, all the racing is about gone. As a racing family, it was hurtful to see SPEED go away. And all the great shows like Wind Tunnel. We need FS2 in the lineup. It's time to negotiate for it to become part of the Comcast lineup or we have to find someone who will provide all of it.
I have called them and done 2 internet chats with them. I have always watched NASCAR practices/Qualifying because I do multiple Fantasy Racing (please don't laugh) money games. It is critical to get all the information you can prior to setting your lineups. So disappointed in Comcast and the Fox Sports Network not having Fox Sports2 and Fox putting racing on FS2 where a lot of the country does not have it. As soon as I close on my house, I am ditching Comcast and it is solely over this issue.
I don't want to be misguided. I think my next move is voicing my opinion to Fox because they have chosen to chop up the NASCAR coverage and lose most of the other racing like F1. Don't want to blame Comcast for that. I'm sure Comcast was not totally aware of how the SPEED and FUEL channels programming would be used after the takeover. But I would think Comcast would be proactive now at least after the fact that we've seen what is being done to the racing coverage, that they will consider FS2 in the programming lineup. Definately have to tell Fox they are doing a horrible disservice to NASCAR and the sponsors. And the truck series is really going to be hurt. NASCAR Raceday was only an hour last couple of weeks. I too watch whatever practices and qualifying I can for a fantasy league, but I am mainly a lifetime fan. I am old. I was at Daytona when it was still on the beach. So I mean a long lifetime. My dad raced real old time cars, too, in the 50's. I am an hour from the Atlanta Speedway. If I can get down there, I need to make a sign saying 'Fox Sports - We need more racing on TV, not less!'
After my own heart, RacingGirl! I was looking at Dish and to get both FS1 and FS2 you need their highest premium package, but it is doable. Hubby doesn't like satelite. We had DirectTV once. It was the rain interference that made reception problems. Racing is the main thing we watch. Some of the other posters on the forum have pointed out where the other series can be found. ILLINIWIZARD wrote a good post. Check them out.
My mission, 1.) lobby for FS2 on Comcast and 2.) tell Fox Sports they are alienating a large segment of the racing audience.
I wouldn't hold my breath.
Atleast the UFC announced on wednesday night that all future prelims would be on FS1 because they heard from the thousands of fans that have comcast and can't get FS2.
Comcast has been completely non-responsive to all the requests for Fuel TV/FS2
I am an ardent NASCAR fan. I CANNOT believe first of all that Fox doesn't find it important enough to at least keep the events that we are used to watching on Fox Sports 1. But now Comcast doesn't find it important enough to broadcast Fox Sports 2 at all. All the other providers are providing FS2. So tomorrow will be my first day in 8 years of not watching NASCAR. Comcast might just be losing yet another customer to Direct TV.
There seems to be a lot of people finding Fox Sports 1 a huge mistake - are you listening Comcast? All the great programs and Nascar coverage Speed Channel offered was great - and it's gone. Those of us who are "car people" now have nothing to watch. And then to find out Comcast doesn't carry Fox Sports 2 is just adding fuel to the fire. We think the FOX network people really screwed up with their decision to take away the SPEED Channel.
I'm furious that FS2 isn't on our lineup. Time to switch to dish network. all these channels and not what I want to watch. No coverage of NASCAR all day today. Ruined my weekend Comcast! No response to anyone on this thread either. Been with them since they started in CT. Time to switch.
Everyone here would like answers.
When will FOX SPORTS 2 Be available to your customers??
If you have no plans on offering it to your customers just say soo
Direct TV is looking better and better.
I miss speed tv, losing all interest on nascar because you can't watch it like before.. don't like fox sports 1, it's not at all interesting to me, I want my old speed channel back. We pay enough money to the cable companies and keep getting less, time to give people what they want.
OK, just checked, they do, goodbye comcast...... Oh yeah, for $90.00 a month for 2 yrs i'm saving lots of money!!!
If Comcast dosen't add Fox Sports 2 by 2015 when Fox Sports and NBC Sports take over NASCAR TV contracts Fox Sports and Fox Sports 1 will air the first 16 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races and NBC and NBC Sports Network will air the finial 20 races along with the ten chase races that also includes the NASCAR Nationwide Series Races as well because you would have too think that Fox Sports would move some practice and Qualfying Sessions like they are now Comcast and Fox Sports have too wake up and strike a deal too add FS2 too our chanel lineups it took Comcast and ESPN too add ESPNU too the fold
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:
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)
Its not comcast that channel is gone forever from every cable provide, not enough people watched it so it got cancled. no cable service has these channels
if you drop comcast no other cable provider will have these channels either, the whole station got cancled comcast didnt just stop aring it, do some research
You guess are so funny lol speed channel was cancled completely, comcast didnt just stop aring it, its gone from everycable provider dont complain to comcast complain to the speed network and fox
No advertisement, please see the forum guidelines
I want to watch ARCA races that Speed use to carry. This weekend Sept. 7 iit is on Fox Sports 2. Comcast needs to stat carrying this station, without charging more.
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.
I too am a Nascar fan and i follow alot of the motorsports. I use to have this on my Speed channel and now we don't have it. If comcast won't give us fox sports 2 then they should not be charging us for a full sports package. All the other providers have Fox sports 2. I think we should all stand together and take our comcast box in and go and do business with Direct TV or Dish. Everybody that I know who has direct tv already has Fox 2. I feel that comcast is going to have alot of lawsuits against them.
I agree, however the retirement community I live won't allow any satallites. So we are locked into comcast. I did have Direct tv prior to moving and it wasn't all that great either-everytime there was a cloud cover or a storm we would lose are tv. We just have to keep after Comcast and hopefully they won't charge extra for "2"
I'm in the same boat. What I don't understand is why they keep FXX (formerly FOX SOCCER) which just shows re-runs all day of the same show I didn't care to watch when it came around the first time. It doesn't take a PhD to figure out that FXX is NOT a sports channel, yet it is still part of the "Preferred Sports Package". If Comcast is so hard up for channel space (the excuse they use for not offering FS2), why not get rid of it and slot in FOX Sports 2? We are in effect paying the same for much less service. A rip off.
Its all just a big middle finger to every comcast customer who actually wants to watch a particular program and not just what they lard the channel lineup with stuff nobody cares about.
During my daily complaint to Comcast for not carrying FOX SPORTS 2, I also mentioned that it was stupid that they now include FXX in their "Preferred Sports Package", since it just shows re runs of shows I never cared to watch the first time around. Why not slot FX2 into that channel if they are so hard up for channel space. They "escalated" the complaint, and somebody from a call center in India gave me a call. I told him what my problem was, and he gave me a $5.00 discount to my bill (the Preferred Sports Package cost $9.95 where I live) for six months. Hopefully they will have it sorted by then. Until then, I'm still complaining at least once a day (I've become a bit obsessive compulsive about this issue, and have too much time on my hands) LOL. Call 'em up and complain about FXX. IF they have to give too many $30.00 credits, it may get some action on their part.
