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!

Re: Fox Sports 2 (formerly Fuel TV)

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)

Re: Fox Sports 2 (formerly Fuel TV)

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.

Re: Fox Sports 2 (formerly Fuel TV)

I think these posts say it all and also shows how Comcast feels about their customers. The whole industry is flawed. All channels should be available and customers should be able to pick and choose their channels. Basic should be local and government. Then you have a pick 10, 50 etc. You pay the price of the channel. Shouldn't have to pay for ESPN if all you want is CNN.

That's okay, Gary, I was ticked off, too. Won't help any with watching it live, but the Xfinity race from today that had no home on XFINITY will be re-aired (so the channel guide says) on Tuesday morning at 10 (ET) on FS1. NA$CAR.com shows both the qualifying and the Cup race at Sonoma next week on FS1.....but I guarantee nothing if it rains on Sunday. After Sonoma, everything except Trucks will be on NBCSN (Trucks will still be on Fox) for the rest of the season. But I'm sure somebody will find a way to louse that up, too.

Re: Fox Sports 2 (formerly Fuel TV)

I can barely wait for nascar to send the weekly fan council survey so i can say what races - bettween nascar, fox and comcast no one raised a finger as usual, for the fans. Oh but we got a new mod who's showing who has the biggest pair by censoring out my posts today. Well he can't censor me on the fan council survey and I am going to post a link to these 25 plus 3 years worth of pages, the nascar fan site today was rife with the same complaints. And they all get our money - fox, comcast and nascar in the garbage like die casts, shirts etc we buy. Hooked up my new goodwill router, stage one cutting the ties with comcast...the two goodwill cable modems despite fully functional are on their end of life list so they wont even recognise it, no problem, goodwill takes everything back, and I have 20 stores in my area,m no doubt I can find a docsis 3 modem to replace my 10 year old arris I have paid rent for, forever. Yep the fan council will get an earful - they sell the naming rights yet make no demands as far as overage - of neither comcast nor fox. astonishing- only motorsports. the nba, nfl, baseball etc wouldnt put up with this garbage - they'd sever ties with fox year one and put comcast on a penalty contract clause. Only motorsports - where the racing series let the networks and cable systems do anything they please including not showing events, practice or qualifying to any fans unless they have dish xtra. ok teds replacement for the weekend - I'm all set for your censoring, you can censor all you like, you cant keep me from posting links to this to nascar.

WHY DOESNT FOX SPORTS 2 NOT AVALIBLE ON COMCAST?

THE NASCAR RACE ON 6/20/15 WAS RAINED OUT AND RE-SCHEDULED ON SUNDAY 6/21/15 ON FOX SPORTS 2. COMCAST DOES NOT OFFER FS2 OR HAVE ANY PLANS TO EITHER. I HAVE CALLED MAY TIMES AND ASKED ABOUT THIS ISSUE ALONG WITH NOT OFFERING MAVTV WHICH HAS A MASSIVE MOTORSPORTS CONTENT. THEY ARE CLUELESS ABOUT ANY OF MY QUESTIONS. THAT WAS THE LAST STRAW FOR ME.

Re: Fox Sports 2 (formerly Fuel TV)

I said i would tell the nascar fan council today - I just did. Go ahead comcast - censor away - you constantly delete mine and others posts fpor no reason. You cant delet that I sent it to nascar though!

 

is there anything else regarding this past weekend’s race(s) that you would like to share with us? ya - WHAT races? Of course nascar only PRETENDS to listen -I been doing these fan councils enough years to know better. This weekend no imsa televised, formula one nbc covers only early, nascar - ok a very late truck race friday. NOT ONE second of practice or qualifying. Comcast has naming rights for the xfinility series, knew BEFIRE doing so they werent going to carry a lot of the racres at all - the refuse to make peace with as freedy fox - so less than 1/2 of one percent of comcast subscribers get fox sports 2- where fox puts all the racing. Including imsa, arca and many other auto related programming. Fox sports one has become what it set out to be - a bad close of espn - except 100 times more annoying, just like fox news network. 100 million nascar fans, how many for arca, and imsa - supposedly 22 million comcast subscribers left - and not one sees any of this except - one exception - dish network has an expensive package called xtra which you can get fox sports 2. Not dish, not comcast - since fox ruined speed it hasnt been the same. I am making plans to get a square indoor antenna and drop all paid tv to get free only channels - in chicago - thats about 60 boring channels. I am livid though - this fathers day weekend, my wife dead, sone gone, daughter murdered, dad and grandpa passed 20 years ago, no job in 7 years, all I got is church,m ushering and knights of columbus - but less and less nascar or racing coverage. You know whats going on - you read your own fan pages - they griped all during the joliet race sunday. I live 45 minutes from the track. So extra special to me. I amso have for 3 plus years posted in a HEAVILY censored comcast owned forum that subscribers have complained for the past three years since speed. comcast is very heavy handed and regularly deletes a lot of the posts at whim so the real number of complaints - subtract at least 25 percent. hereis a link - 25 pages of complaints over 3 years -

 

http://forums.xfinity.com/t5/Channels-and-Programming/Fox-Sports-2-formerly-Fuel-TV/td-p/1796282/pag...

 

I also have many times complained to the fcc.

 

I say shame on nascar and imsa and arca. You sold the naming and tv rights. yet you are never available to fans except these so called surveys likely mostly read by marketing folks. Comcast - they dont care - they got their exposure, billions in profits and the pride to know they are named again americas most hated company. Fox - fox is a consistent joke - and for nascar we are stuck with darrel and mikey - both who should have been retired to a kentucky horse farm ages ago.

Nascar = as I drop paid tv I will miss nascar. But not modern nascar - maybe junior but he is NOT anywhere near his dads talent - ust a lot more likeable. the qualifying is a joke, and now not televised. The chase - its nike ncaa basketball - the chase drivers might like, tv guys like - fans hate. Its a joke. as a fan since 1960 - 55 years - i will miss nascar from about 1983 to about 1995. 83 I got cable, espn back then cared, some was on tnn....nascar was genuine. But I am broke, and if I wasnt I am tired of paying for merchandise to nascar and money tpo fox and comcast - and then for three years and counting they carry less and less nascar. We thought espn at the end was bad - fox sports and comcast easily eclipsed espns neglect to racing fans. I dare you to go to the comcast site - read 25 pages - and actually wake up and do something. I know better. Nothing will be done, not now, not ever.

Apologies that Fox has chosen to put some of their high profile events on one of their least distributed cable channels.


You keep repeating the line that FS2 is one of their "least distributed cable channels." I don't care what their distribution is, I care that Comcast is not willing to distribute the channel to its customers. And, as pointed out above, it is only "least distributed" in relative terms, as every other television provider has FS2 on at least one of its packages. If Comcast chose to pay the 16 cents per month per subscriber to distribute FS2, then FS2 would no longer be one of Fox's "least distributed cable channels" anymore. Stop trying to pass the blame onto Fox.

The speed channel has been removed from the comcast lineup and I kept on hoping that comcast would have other channels pick up more auto racing during the week days, but all you have done was rerun nascar in America every week! what the heck put racing back on tv during the week even if its nascar race re ran. like the xfinity series race that got postpond and reran on fox sport 2 witch we do not get!!!

Re: Race coverage on FS2

Fox is as much to blame for FS2 not being available as Comcast.  Fox wants the channel on one of the top level tiers, but Comcast is unwilling.  Obviously subscribers fees much mean more to Fox than advertising dollars.  If it wasn't, they would allow Comcast, make it available in what ever way possible.  Through a Sports package or lower tier.  Rumors are that MAVTV wanted Dish to put their channel on a higher tier and Dish said no it stays on the Outdoor package.  Mav didn't like it and Dish dropped it. We live in a time that cable should become ala Carte. Pick and choose.  Or channels go to streaming, allowing us to pay for what we want, and not pay for the other 90% of crud that is force down our wallet..

As I've said before,with Comcast,  this will happen when pigs fly in formation, with the slot pig inverted. "Back in the day" this was the way things happened when cable was in it's beginning stages.

Fox Sports 2?????

This is a question about a channel that I believe is not carried by Xfinity.  Where or can we see FOX SPORTS 2?  This channel was the only place last November where the Cal-Stanford Big Game was located for the entire first quarter.  Local fans wait yearly for this event and the LA feed showed us Oklahoma football and the entire post game show on FS1 before they kicked over to the Cal game.  The ladies FIFA soccer tournament has been on recently and again games are exclusivikly featured on FS2, which I believe Xfinity is not carrying.  So I ask - when will Xfinity offer its loyal subscribers this channel? The BigTen network is an additional charge, so maybe FS2 should be offered that way, but in the perfect world BOTH these channels should be offered on the Sports package that includes Pac10 and the SEC.

That is one tired excuse/lie that the cable company has been putting out there as a PR stunt to customers. FS2 is not available on any top level tiers on the other major providers out there (be it the satellite companies or Verizon), it sounds ridiculous that Fox would only insist that Comcast have FS2 on top level tier but not the others. Another debunked myth.

Re: Race coverage on FS2

I'm glad the thread has legs, sadly that is all it has as nothing is going to change. Last week no nascar - all on fs2. This weekend coming up - I am stunned two weekends in a row, no qualifying, no practice, basically it is worse than espn got at the end ONLY the live race sunday will be televised - that's worse than even last weekend itself a pathetic joke - and while we all got mad a heavy handed comcast weekend mod deleted most of our posts (at least ted is a little more tolerant)..  nascar Racehub - what was a daily racing show on fs1 - was bumped for more than a week off fox sports 1 - they are paid by fox - so all they said was bet you missed us, welcome back. We can complain all we want. Until every sport deferred to fox sports 2 complains - nascar, imsa, arca, other sports - the battle with fox and comcast will never end. I worried once I returned to church I'd miss raceday and some racing. I am off to goodwill to return to docsis 2 cable modems, going to find a used docsis 3, or not,  and off to walmart for a cheap tv antenna. this thread will last either until nascar folds from empty seats and silver spoon management or people forget who speed channel was. We could hope comcast would lose lots of customers, well that isnt happening - 400 ads a day for comcast   - as wc fields said a sucker born every day. cant go to att uverse - they dont carry fs2 either. Guess until fox sports viewership falls off a clip as folks are sick of wwe and non stop fifa it will be 25 pages more here coomplaining, and guess what - no change.

Hi, Jim --

 

According to NA$CAR.com and MRN.com, qualifying will be on FS1 on Saturday at 2 p.m. (ET). Up to today the on-screen channel guide had that listed as Cup practice, but it also says "qualifying" now.

 

Also, I've just noticed that this past weekend's Xfinity race that was shortened yesterday is on the schedule again today, from noon to 2:30. Maybe somebody at Fox accidently flipped a switch yesterday....I know Fox got an earful from viewers about it. We'll have to see what happens today when they get to the last 20 laps.

 

If it rains on Sunday's Sonoma race, who knows what will happen. After Sonoma, it's all NBCSN (except for Truck) -- that may be a whole 'nother circus. Doesn't Comcast own NBC now, too?

Is Comcast going to get Fox Sports 2?

Is there a plan to get Fox Sports 2 on Comcast.  I missed the NASCAR Xfinity (comcast) race because the race got postponed due to rain and they showed it on Fox Sports 2.  You would think we should be able to watch something sponsored by Xfinity on a channel provided by Xfinity - Comcast.

Gold Cup starts in about a week and half the games are scheduled for Fox Sports 2.  Come of Comcast, get with it already and add Fox Sports 2 HD. Even if you put it in the Sports Entertainment Package, I know I would subscribe, and I'm sure a lot of others would as well.

Re: Race coverage on FS2

In recent contract negotiations with Cox, Fox Sports 2 was moved to Digital Essential, their equivalent of Digital Starter. So it is very likely Fox wants the same of Comcast, to take a channel that is not even carried throughout a large portion of their footprint, and place it somewhere that it's easily accessible and something that all subscribers have to pay for, whether they want it or not.

 

Those of you who are big motor sports fans may not like the current situation, but that's likely why it is the way that it is.

Good post.
Well, I'm already paying for a lot of ethnic- and religious-specific channels that I don't want in order to get channels that I do want.....so, what else is new? 
While the biggest part of this thread has been about motorsports, it should also be noted that fans of other sports are also being affected by this whole Comcast/Fox temper-tantrum tug-of-war thing.
