why doesnt comcast carry fox sports 2? Nascar xfinity series has beenpostponed until 9 am sunday .Im missing the race because it being broadcast on fox sports 2. Im not happy!!
amen to that - yes it is raining, I am in bartlett, west of chicago and north of joliet. But this proves who controls race tv coverage - the networks - with no guiddance by the series. Nascar knows what is going on, I tell them every week for years in the weekly fan council survey. imsa gets scrrewed too. But comcast will sell its soul to the devuil for baseball or especially fifa or mma fighting, and of course the hated 3 thiings you should know. Fox is half the time has become twice as bad as espn got at the end their final 3 or 4 year5s (versus stellar racing in the early 80's). Comcast has no shame nor care they get their name on a dseries that wont be even telecast on their cable system - and of course they do not care. They still get the publicity. My wife died two years ago, step daughter murdered last summer, no job for 7 years, and otu of money, weekends life this - a very late 8 mediocre truck race last night, zero qualifying televised, zero practice televised, unless you have dish extra so you can get fs2 - bottom line I have not seen so little racing on a wreekend since winter. I have no family, dad and grandpa dead 20 years, so tomorrow after church I'll just do grocery shopping. Formula one is one super early but unlike when it was on speed nbs sports (owned by comcr@p) doesnt run it later in the day like speed did. My sole racing this weekend - one dull truck race. I caznt afford to go to joliet despite it is 45 minutes straight south on 59. Comcast says when I disconnect soon after 35 years they threaten me with rearly termoination to say thanks for being loyal 35 years. But apprently when I buy an antenna and only get free tv I wont be missing any racing anyway will I fox and comcast???????????? Oh and shame on formula one, nascar, imsa all the racing series - ball5le55 wonders the lot of them - not one makes the channels nor the cable provider show tyheir races to their customers - nadscar and imsa and f1 are as asleep at the switcch and greedy as are fox and comcast.
Does Comcast now support Fox Sports 2
type 36907 (f-o-x- -s) and see if fox sports 2 is listed. we have it in our market.
I'm wondering the same thing! How is it @Xfinity can Title Sponsor a NASCAR Series but cannot figure out how to provide their customers the ability to WATCH that series when its on a specific channel? The race at Chicagoland has been postponed due to rain and rescheduled for tomorrow on FS2. Being originally from the Chicago area I always look forward to seeing those races. BUT I CAN'T!!! Because for whatever reason @XFINITY doesn't carry FS2 here and NOONE i've talked to can tell me Why Not or When they Will carry it. SO Frustrated that I am seriously considering going back to DirecTV instead of moving my service to my new home next month.
I'm a Nascar fan. Xfinity now is the sponsor of the Nascar series. They will be racing tomorrow 6-21-15 on Fox Sports 2 do to a rainout.....Don't ya think Xfinity (Comcast) would carry that channel? What is up..............
UNhappy Father's Day to all of the NASCAR fans!!!
You need to make the Fox Sports 2 (formerly Fuel TV) channel available to Comcast Xfinity customers. It has been a problem for a couple of years now. Not being able to watch a series that Comcast Xfinity supports, ON a Comcast Xfinity channel is ridiculous!!!
It is the epitome of arrogance on the part of Comcast to broadcast NASCAR events such as today's Xfinity race (note the sponser of the series) on Fox Sports 2 that is not available to a large number of subscribers. Check out the NASCAR website; the feeling is unanimous. PATHETIC & GREEDY COMCAST!
It is amazing how foolish Xfinity can be. Today, June 21, 2015, the Xfinity Series NASCAR races will not be seen by any of Xfinity's 300,000 cable TV subscribers in Massachusetts (and those in other parts of the country) because Xfinity does not carry FoxSports 2 here. The race was rained out the day before but rescheduled and moved to FioxSports 2. Now how silly does it look for a whole nationwide series named for Xfinity to be un-viewable by Xfinity customers? Yet the company likes to call its service "MyXfinity" and run self-promotional commercials touting its sports channels. Oh, and Verizon DOES offer FoxSports 2 here.
Why cant Comcast/Xfinity offer Fox Sports 2 in its lineup? The Nascar "Xfinity" series race was rained out yesterday and postponed to today 6/21, but moved to FS2 which is not offered by Comcast!
why no fox sports 2???? hhhhhm but they will show the us open gold on both fox channels, i think there are more racefans than golf fans, and more race fans than soccer fans!!!! oh wait the ceo owns a soccer team???? wow who would of thought, and its the series that they sponsor, wouldnt u want people to see the sport that your name is on!!!!!!!
I've been complaining about this ever since the changeover from the Speed channel. After they started
sponsoring the Xfinity series I, like you, thought for sure they would add Fox sports 2 to the channel lineup, boy was I wrong. I've complained and complained to no avail. They keep giving me the company speek about demographics and marketing strategy. I even went so far as to write Brian Roberts, the Comcast CEO, about the absurdity of sponsering a series that you don't air. He didn't give me courtesy of a reply. Didn't surprise me, although they say they are interested in customer service, they are not. Where I live they are the only cable company, it's them or satellite.
Comcxast Xfinity is supposed to be the greatest TV service ever, so why doesn't this so called greatest ever TV provider carry Fox Sports 2?
Yes a great Comcast Xfinity, NASCAR marriage a 'win-win' scenario? except when a race is postponed due to rain and rescheduled the next day on a channel (Fox Sports 2) that Comcast DOESN'T CARRY DUMB MOVE! now you have helped Directv get more customers, I know Comcast will Blame Fox or Nascar but being the major sponser I would think someone would have said not that channel as 85% of Comcast subscribers can't get that no matter how much they pay, but just look at all of the garbage channels (infomercial) we get and don't want and have to pay for, cable providers need to wake up as on line streaming is getting better where we will only have to pay for what WE want.
duplicate post removed
Comcast I hope you are monitoring this site. Your customers are upset!! Put Fox
Sports 2 in the channel lineup or don't allow any racing on Fox
Why am I paying for sports programing and can't watch the xfinity race? My bill went up $55.00 and the company that sponsors the race doesn't have the channel it is on. I think it's time to drop cable for direct tv or anything that has the channels I want and doesn't cost $250.00 a month. Why don't we have FOX SPORTS 2??????
I find it amusing that the XFINITY Series race today (6-21-15) from Chicago is being broadcast on a channel that Comcast doesn't even carry. The title sponsor of a series and you don't even carry the channel? SMH.......
It's not only the "XFINITY" race (still cracks me up, title sponsor and no coverage) today we're gonna miss, ALL Sprint Cup practice and qualifying next weekend is on Fox Sports 2. Don't you love with all the complaining here there is absolutely NO response from Comcast?
The Nascard Xfinity Series race that was postpone to today (6-21-15) is supposed to be aired on Fox Sports 2 - a channel that Comcast doesn't even carry? So is Comcast planning to air the race on a different station?
I just went back to and was told you had fox sports 2 after having changed from dish and back to you guys and all hooked up found out you do not even carry Fox sports 2. You need to stop lieing to people just to get their business cause I would of stayed with dish if I had known this.
Please add FS2 as an available channel to our lineup. I'm happy to pay a little extra to get the channels I want. This is rediculous!
It's bad when we can't watch the xfinity race on xfinity.
Maybe thay should get Fox sports 2.
Comcast doesn't really care. From what I understand, come July 4th, all NASCAR racing will be on NBCsports network, which is owned by Comcast. If they weather out the next couple of weeks, the problem, in their mind, will go away, as will all the complainers on this forum (lord knows, I've done my share of complaining). Like I've said before, Comcast's hard stance at adding Fox Sports 2 doesn't really make sense, (COMCAST TEDs is always saying "It has to make sense for all the parties involved"). You antagonize your "most valued customers", sponsor a racing series which few of your subscribers can access, and if they complain, you tell them to go somewhere else. This is the height of hubris which will ultimately ruin Comcast. You can't have such an attitude, and expect to survive economically. How may millions did they spent for naming rights? Yet they get all "Ooooooo nooooo, we can't add one little cheap channel, because our margins are so tight that we will be forced to pass on the cost to all of our customers". This is complete bull excrement. No doubt Comcast Teds will post again (he always seems to perk up his ears when his name is mentioned in a post) and once again tell us "little ignorant people" that "it has to make sense for all the parties involved". I'm sick of hearing it. Comcast needs to listen to it's customers. Yes, Fox has a lot of blame in this, but it's Comcast who is alienating its "most valued customers" (heavy snark)
as a NASACR FAN i wonder the same thin why NO FOX 2 ,, COMCAST sponsors the XFINITY series YET WE CANNOT WATCH IT OB FOXs 2 sports. 6-21-2015.
Additionally, r.e. the little decorations next to our posts. How much did that cost? I'd rather see FS2 than see a green star under my name. They are idiots.
Xfinity race postponed till noon tomorrow on FX2 I HATE COMCAST !
Interesting.....I posted a comment immediately after this one last night -- and it's gone! Hope you got to see it, GaryNSJersey, before it disappeared. I guess "Shame on you, Comcast" was more than they wanted to read.
I want to watch the Nascar Xfinity Race today on right now from Chicago Land, but can not find
FS-2 on my xfinity TV channel lineup. Dont tell me that Comcast & Xfinity the Sponsors of the Race
dont even carry the network, !!! Wake Up Comcast.
Does Xfinity even carry FX2? They did away with Speed Channel which is now FX1 but when ever anything NASCAR comes on FX1 says switch to FX2. What's the deal?
NO XFINITY NASCAR RACE TODAY ON TV, " WOW ", WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE, XFINITY IS THE SPONSOR OF THE RACE AND COMCAST DOESN'T EVEN CARRY THE NETWORK FOX-SPORTS 2.
It is a crying shame that Xfinity is the sponsor of the race today and Comcast does not even have the Fox Sports 2 channel in their line up. Looks like somebody at Comcast is being kind of stupid You would think that if they are going to sponsor a program that they would at least show it. Just some more stupidy from Comcast. Wished I had some other choice for programming besides Comcast.
Can't watch race today because Comcast doesn't carry Fox Sports 2! Thinking of swtiching as more and more Nascar isn't on a channel I can watch!
Wow! 24 pages of what my husband & I have been complaining about! Unfortunately everything's been said "Comcast Sucks"! We are Bristol County area in MA, they took the Speed Channel that we pay for off. So I called to find out WHAT exactly I was paying for now. One channel, that's it! All the other channels we never watch! They need to add FX2 or I will start looking for someone who does carry it, we miss our NASCAR (Speed Channel)!

I was actually SHOCKED to say the least......
I went to NASCAR's website and someone posted that Fox Sports had actually "turned on" access to Fox Sports 2 on the "Fox Sports to Go" application.
So, I grabbed my iPad and went to the App. Sure enough, after I logged in using my Xfinity account, I got the usual message about not having access to Fox Sports 2 in my area, but when I clicked the continue button, up popped Fox Sports 2 and am able to watch the race now.
So, I grabbed my Google Chrome device and sync'd with my iPad and now am watching it on 55" of glorious TV.
Give it a try... hopefully it will work in your area also.
So, no "XFINITY" (series sponsor) race today on TV (their response will be, we offered it on-line). What if Comcast isn't your Internet provider? Next week, ALL of the Sprint Cup practice and qualifying is on FS2..........Next week? Bet this message gets killed quickly, how they do things....
We CAN'T watch the Xfinity racing series on Xfinity TV when it's broadcast on Fox Sports 2? Why?? Because Xfinity doesn't CARRY Fox Sports 2...WHAT??
We're sitting here 10 miles from a local racetrack while the race is GOING ON, and can't get it because... SEE ABOVE!
