Re: Fox Sports 2 (formerly Fuel TV)

I may stand corrected on this BUT I believe Fox has an ongoing contract for the Nationwide Series, which next year will be the Xfinity Series? Interesting to see this weeks Nationwide Qualifying will be on FS-2 !!!  Just will prove interesting to see what Comcast does about that little "problem" in 2015!!!

If you have an interest just click on the linl in my last post.

 

In 20/20 hind sight it appears that the original scheduling that was posted for TV coverage here in Florida was changed at the last minute. Hmmmmmmmmmmm, wonder what that was all about??? Did any of you see the same thing? I usually set my recording of Sprint & Nationwide on Wed. when the channel line up comes out in the local rag & it was then that I saw the major events being on FS2. Come Friday they had been changed. Ya think?

 

Mr. Ted, as we say in the Ham Radio Community "Good luck in the contest Ole Man".

No!!! BUT I'll give you an update on FS2 coverage this week. IF you happen to not be blessed from Comcast with FS2, you'll miss Nationwide Qualifying, SOME Sprint practice, & to top things of, you ALSO will not see Sprint Cup Qualifying!!! Don't you just LOVE the GREAT service we get from Comcast. NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If Comcast does not decide to provide my area with Fox Sports 2 by the next UFC on Fox event, as they promised, I'm jumping ship. TV, phones, internet - all of it.

Re: Fox Sports 2 (formerly Fuel TV)

Fox Sports has a mobile app called Fox Sports Mobile.  You download the app to your cell phone or tablet and log in to the Fox Sports Mobile site using your Xfinity credentials.  That allows you to see much of the Fox Sports 2 content.  I access it for college basketball but I beleive they also offer some auto races as well.  Good luck.

Re: Fox Sports 2 (formerly Fuel TV)

I see what they did.  Before you sign in to FOX SPORTS GO, it lists whats on FOX SPORTS 1 & FOX SPORTS 2.  As soon as you sign in, any listing for FOX SPORTS 2 goes away, assuming you don't have FS2 on your cable line up.  Instead, more programing shows up under the channel "FOX SPORTS GO".  That may be how you can see FS2 content.  I haven't tried it out, as there is nothing I care to watch right now.

Re: Fox Sports 2 Northern CA/Bay Area

So Dish, Direct TV and U-verse offer Fox Sports 2 and Comcast that gets over $200.00 of our money every month does not offer the channel that is televising the Big Game today.  Comcast, please mention this the next time you are doing those anti-Uverse commercials that your customers in the Bay Area could not watch the Big Game because you don't carry a channel that all of your competitors do.

 

Fox is to blame for this too.  I would rather watch paint dry than Kansas at Oklahoma after a rain delay because the Big12 players were worried their skirts would get wet.

 

Figure out Comcast, you cannot be without a contengency plan for the Big Game in the Bay Area!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Boy, Fox sports sure know how to irritate the San Francisco Bay area.  The Cal-Stanford game, an important local tradition, was bumped from Fox Sports 1 for an Oklahoma game - not a tradition for the 5 million people who live in the Bay Area) - and moved to Fox Sports 2, a channel not covered even by my pretty extensive Comcast Xfinity contract.  

 

These all leaves a very bad taste in my mouth. It will come back every time I think of Fox Sports.

 

Yours, Homer

And these guys are going to sponsor the former Bucsh/ Nationwide Series? This forum is useless. They don't give a rat hinny what we want. This FoX2 forum is one of the most active. MAVTV is also highly requested. But channels we haven't even heard of are instead added, and of course we pay for. We also pay for software updates that aren't properly tested and we suffer through the bugs and defects. And we pay for it.

Meanwhile, back on the ranch, we take our beatings while these 2 children (Fox & Comcast) play the power game with the customers as "Cannon Fodder"!!! Our ONLY hope is that with the NASCAR sponsorship, Comcast may just be left with no choice but to carry FS2 OR  I'm lead to believe, they just might make a power play with NASCAR to remove Fox as a carrier of the events. It will prove interesting just how they propose to break the Fox Sports contract?????  2015 will prove interesting!!!

Re: Fox Sports 2 (formerly Fuel TV)

I just sent a request that you get Fox Sports 2, when I wanted to see the Big Game.  But now that I think about it, I've changed my mind, & I don't care whether you get it or not.  There's not enough on Fox Sports 2 to bother, and I'd just as soon as have Fox have less channels after the lousy coverage they did with the World Series.

Re: Fox Sports 2 (formerly Fuel TV)

When we signed up for Comcast Triple Play, you stated in writing on your website that you would be adding FS2.  You were lying.  We are soccer fans, we will be switching to DirecTV because:

1.  No FS 2

2.  ESPNdesporte, BEin, and ESPN classic are all in low resolution

3.  You don't carry ESPNU at all

 

We can correct all of these by switching to DirecTV, and save money to boot.

 

And on top of it all, you don't even provide an email address to voice complaints.  Even DirecTV provides an email address, and in my experience actually answers seriious questions with serious respones.

 

Adios, Comcast

Re: Fox Sports 2 (formerly Fuel TV)

I noticed that FS2 is in the channel lineup for Northern Vermont but, Still can't get it since its "Only avalible in the southern part of the state" 

I think if it's in the channel lineup it should be unlocked for everyone to watch, I mean we pay exhorbant prices for the service why not have it unlocked and avalible?

Don't give me that "Cirtain area" or the "Only avalible to a cirtian kind of cable box and manufacturer" or "Zone" bs either, If it's on the program guide then it can be unlocked and viewed with the current box reguardless of the manufacturer!

If it's unlocked and avalible in the southern part of the state, Unlock it for the whole state!

I got a response from an assistant, who did not say much. If enough of us send e-mails, however, they might notice. .

McCoy66,

Thanks for the link. I sent some feedback as politly as I could and mentioned my long time patronage of Comcast/Xfinity. I told him the worst part of this deal is some customers receive FS2 but most do not. I also asked that if there was a contract negotiation with FOX Sports that limited FS2's availability please tell us and stop the continual promising that our requests will be honored.

Re: Fox Sports 2 (formerly Fuel TV)

The areas that have access to Fox Sports 2 (formerly Fuel) are areas that Comcast purchased from other providers, and existing programming contracts are resulting in the network being carried in areas where it otherwise wouldn't be.

Most of these areas descend from Adelphia or SusCom, a formerly regional provider in some parts of Central PA. Some areas also carry Fox Sports 2 that were formerly Time Warner Cable markets that were divested as the companies now attempting to merge divided up Adelphia assets. These markets are mostly found in the Twin Cities of Minnesota, Houston, and Memphis.

For everyone else, it's going to take a new deal with FOX to bring access to Fox Sports 2 content, and to get an HD feed, which is carried on many other providers now.

Important quote from this article... But Gelston noted there may be "one speed bump: Xfinity does not carry Fox Sports 2 on its cable systems, which the company hoped to have straightened out" in time for the '15 NASCAR season.

I would expect to see it by February.

Please consider addign Fox Sports 2 to your channel line up.  As a NASCAR fan I am missing out on many events that I should be able to see for what I pay Comcast each month.  The whole reason, years ago, that I upgraded to all of the channels I have now was so that I could have SPEED Channel.  Then Fox Sports took over and Comcast did not keep up to satisfy the NASCAR fans.  Please consider adding Fox Sports 2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Fox Sports 2 (formerly Fuel TV)

Really is terrible that once again, COMCAST and FOX is preventing us from watching the complete ROLEX 24 @ Daytona.  We get to miss four hours of afternoon coverage (prime time for those on the East Coast)  because it will be on FOX SPORTS 2.  Even if you go to the IMSA website and click on the "live broadcast" button, you are prevented from streaming the coverage. (I found a workaround, using my good old VPN, so it looks like my iPad is in the UK.)  Picture is not as good, but at least I can watch the whole race, commercial free.

This situation has been addressed by numerous customers in numerous ways (this thread is now 19 pages and still active after a year and a half). I have talked to Comcast executives personally, and been told basically "don't hold your breath". I also have contacted Fox, as they are just as culpable. When the network stopped broadcasting he race Fter 2 hours, I was pleased to find that IMSA.com is indeed providing streaming of the broadcast while it's on FS2. I also rather listen to commentary by Radio Lemans, so all is well in my world now. I've given up hope of seeing FS2 anytime soon.

Well, now that Comcast has signed a 10-year agreement to be the new title sponsor of the formerly-named NASCAR "Nationwide Series," the hope is that Comcast will start carrying FS2 in all of their markets this year, in order to provide full coverage of the (now-named) "Xfinity Series."

Morning ebl11,

I feel for you.  I am an avid cyclist and a NASCAR fan.  Now, I didn't realize that Fox had a second sports channel with NASCAR on it.  So, this post isn't about that but goes hand in hand.  Comcast, why don't you have NBC Universal sports in your line up?  As ebl11 I'm missing out on a bunch of cycling racing including the Tour Down Under right now.  Please add both.  To be honest there are providers that do. 

Respectfully,
