Re: Fox Sports 2 (formerly Fuel TV)

Yep.  Until thousands upon thousands of people start dumping Comcast, nothing will change.  

 

We've been fighting this battle since 2013 when Comcast told us that FS1 & FS2 were coming to the channel lineup when SPEED went away. 

 

I dumped Comcast back in January and now enjoy Wave Broadband which has FS1 & FS2 (both in HD).  I'm only 1 person, so unless a good portion of Comcast customers start dumping them for other providers nothing will change.  As Markdartj noted, we are just 1 penny that has fallen to the sidewalk and Comcast can't be troubled to pick it up.

I'm still lost here. I've had both FS1 and FS2 on Comcast since Fox Sports started the two networks. Bought them out, converted them, whatever. What areas do you people live in that you don't have both Networks?

Well, in my case, I'm in the Pac NW.  The SF bay area is without, and not sure about SoCal market; but part of the problem is that Comcast has been less than forthcoming regarding what areas of the US have FS2.  If you do have FS2, you are in the minority, and even smaller minority if you have it in HD.  The only reason you do have FS2 is because of legacy contracts.  In the meantime the majority has to do without, even in standard def.  I cannot believe we had to miss quali in Vegas so we could watch a weigh in for a fight.

Re: Fox Sports 2 (formerly Fuel TV)

Was your cable system bought out by Comcast?  If so the reason you have FS2 is because it was grandfathered in.  Other Comcast subscribers don't have it and Comcast has. I intention to add it.  But I do think it was weird watching qualifying yesterday (on satilight) and Xfinity had a paid add on FS2.

I do not have FS2 in HD. Comcast bought out the market here 12-14 years ago. It's in SD, but I just use the Fox Sports app on Apple TV when I need to watch FS2. In fact, I use the app for FS1 on Apple TV too a lot as it overs multi live race cams.

Re: Fox Sports 2 (formerly Fuel TV)

Like it has previously been stated.  If you DO have FS2, it's NOT because Xfinity/Comcast is giving it to some areas of the country and not others.  It's becasuse of legacy contracts.  That is when Xfinity/Comcast had previously bought out a cable provider and that cable provider ALREADY had a contract to carry FS2.  So in other words, if you are an Xfinity/Comcast customer and you have FS2, consider yourself both lucky AND in the extreme minority.

 

I have so many things tied to Xfinity/Comcast (internet, etc.) and there is only one other provider in my area any way.  So switching isn't really an option for me.  But several people have described ways they are watching FS2 through other means.  I keep reading where people are getting FS2 on their TV through this way or that way, even though Xfinity/Comcast isn't providing it.  Can we do some REAL good here and create a post that shares with everyone ALL the different possible ways of watching FS2?  The one downside that I haven't heard a workaround for is DVR.  I usually DVR Nascar practice/qualifying to watch when I want.  I don't know if there is a way to do that without actually getting the channel on your lineup.

Re: Fox Sports 2 (formerly Fuel TV)

This weekend, here's what is on Fox Sports 2:

 

 

Saturday, March 18

 

Noon, Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series practice, FS2
1 p.m., NASCAR XFINITY Series Coors Light Pole Qualifying, FS2
2 p.m., NASCAR Race Hub Weekend Edition, FS2
2:30 p.m., Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series final practice, FS2

 

Sunday, March 19

1:30 p.m., NASCAR RaceDay, FS2

 

 

 

People who had FuelTV got FoxSports 2 when it was launched in Aug 2013 ...

 

 

The pathetic thing about Comcast being schmucks is that there IS a slot in the 1000-1999 channels right after FoxSports 1 where they COULD put FoxSports 2 ... So, they cannot say "there's no room in the lineup" ... 

 

 

Whoever runs their Xfinity Racing twitter account needs to drop the attitude ... and stop acting as an nascar/comcast apologist ...

 

And to think ... News Corp had wanted to be the official Olympics TV partner (yet the vast majority of comcast customers don't have FS2 and would lose out on a buttload of Olympics coverage) ...

My understanding is that Direct TV, at least in some areas, has FS2. You might want to check it in your area before you jump.

 

Statements from Comcast execs have been (re: FS2 and other channels) that if customers want a channel that Comcast declines to carry, they (the customers) are welcome to sign up with another service that carries the channel. Isn't that nice? You have their permission to take YOUR money and spend it elsewhere.

 

Comcast cares.

To clarify the above, duplicate "mirrored" channels (like having HGTV HD or SD on two separate channels in the channel lineup) does not take up additional bandwidth.

 

The multiple channel locations are simply presented as an optional channel entry points for our customers. They take up no additional bandwidth.

Re: Fox Sports 2 (formerly Fuel TV)

I think the closest to an answer on this topic, as it stands today [April 8, 2017], may be having to do with contracts and timing.

 

Perhaps for Fox Sports 2 (SD and/or HD) to get added by Comcast, it would be done on a national level. And that it hasn't been on Comcast systems (including my area, the market of Detroit, MIchigan) due to timing. Whenever the last contract was for Speedvision which became Speed Channel which became, as it is now, Fox Sports 1...what apparently was not included with Fuel TV which is now knows as Fox Sports 2.

 

If this is accurate, it is unfortunate for Comcast subscribers who really want carriage of Fox Sports 2. And cable-television providers have policy of not saying what may be coming, or if a negotiation is going, because some deals don't get reached...and that could be a negative to be sharing such information.

 

My feeling is that Comcast will get Fox Sports 2 with other related programming whenever the current contract (whatever the specific details) come up for renewal. I don't think Fox Sports 2 is not currently available because Comcast doesn't want to add Fox Sports 2. I think it has to do with the period when it was still Fuel TV.

Re: Fox Sports 2 (formerly Fuel TV)

The details of the contract, last renewed for programming (like those under the Fox Sports umbrella), may have five years ago. (Comcast was indeed already carrying Speedvision/Speed Channel/Fox Sports 1.) They may have been seven years ago. I cannot know for fact how long ago that was. Customers are not going to know. You'd pretty much have to be an insider to know.

 

According to Wikipedia.org, Fuel TV became Fox Sports 2 on August 17, 2013. That was a little less than four full years ago. So, it is possible the last time such related programming was renewed, it did not include then-Fuel TV and, with its rebranding of a current Fox Sports 2, it may very well be in connection to my theory that this long wait it is due to contract/timing.

Just curious....how much more are you paying for internet now that you are dropping TV (and phone too?)  It's my understanding that Comcast raises the internet price when you eliminate the others.  Will the combined Comcast Internet/Direct TV cost be less than you are paying Comcast now?  I'm seriously interested, because in addition to Comcast not carrying FS2 or MavTV, I'm now faced with "going over the data usage limit" which I didn't know I even had, despite the fact that I haven't changed my data usage habits in the last few years.  Of course, Comcast now says "for an additional $50.00 a month", they can make this go away.  I already pay too much to Comcast, and am looking for alternatives, despite the fact that we can't get satellite service in our building.  (You don't have to tell me actuall numbers, I just want to know if you'll save money going your route).  Thanks.

Just wanted to recap, consolidate and summarize the current situation with Fox Sports 2 that some may find helpful.

 

Below is not new information and most all has been posted previously in earlier posts;

  

We certainly realize that anything short of a post that says "Comcast is adding Fox Sports 2 in all areas on this date and your monthly cable bill won't go up" will not be a satisfactory answer for most.

 

We don't have any announcements to make regarding additional locations for the addition of Fox Sports 2 at this time. We also don't have an expected date for an announcement for the Fox Sports 2 in additional Comcast areas. I'm not currently aware of any decisions to remove or add Fox Sports 2 in any locations. Any potential channel additions or deletions would be communicated ahead of time according to any FCC and local franchise requirements.

 

We don’t currently have an agreement to add Fox Sports 2 to any Sports Package, as much as we might want to.

 

Comcast does offer Fox Sports 2 in some markets based on some existing contractual obligations. 

 

Our content and programming teams are in regular contact with Fox on many topics, including possible additional distribution for Fox Sports 2. The conversations are ongoing. A contract and agreement to terms is required before we can offer any channel to our customers.  These need to be terms that make sense for both parties and for our customers.    

 

All channels, regardless of affiliation, are required to go through the same application and approval process in order to be carried by Comcast.

 

Our programming teams and local management teams constantly evaluate programming choices and make decisions based on customer interests, costs, channel bandwidth management and contractual obligations.

 

As with any network contract, we want to come to an agreement that offers the best terms for our customers and our company that keeps both our costs and our customer's monthly costs to a minimum. Any possible addition of any new network would also most likely incur additional costs to Comcast that would be passed along to our customers. As mentioned above, those additional costs are one of the factors in considering adding any new network.

 

Generally, new networks want to be added to a very widely distributed level of service for the potential of the most eyeballs (ratings) and advertising revenue. That means that the costs would be spread across all of the customers that have that channel in their level of service, not just to those who want to pay individually for that specific service or via a separate Sports Package.

 

Of course, situations may change based on customer demand, channel bandwidth opportunities, business opportunities, costs and contractual obligations. The Comcast employees who participate in these forums certainly pass along  collective feedback, interests and concerns to those teams. This forum is not the sole source of customer input.


ONLINE ACCESS

 

The current contract terms with Fox only allow online access to Fox Sports 2 for customers who have that channel (Fox Sports 2) in their level of service. 

That is how most all cable networks operate and this situation is standard across all video providers.

 

Below from the Fox Sports Go site:  http://msn.foxsports.com/foxsportsgo/

Live streams of all the FOX Sports Networks are available at no additional cost to fans who receive FOX Sports as part of their TV subscription through participating TV providers. If you get FOX Sports 1, FOX Sports 2, and FOX sports regional channels at home, you've got access!

 

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

 

It takes two parties to negotiate and come to an equitable agreement for carriage of any cable network.

 

Generally in addition to per subscriber fees, there are additional capital costs incurred (equipment and such) as well as any opportunity costs (what else could we use that bandwidth for).  This is no different than most other businesses.  

 

I hope that the above helps to explain some of the ”whys”.

 

Unfortunately, it’s not always as easy as saying, “hey, some of our customers want this this, let’s put it on and pay whatever the costs are and pass those costs along to all of our customers”.  If and when we have additional news to announce, we will certainly do so here and in other places.

RE Le Mans.  If you go to the WEC website, you can purchase a Le Mans only package, not sure how much, but reasonable.  I purchase the whole WEC season including Le Mans for 30EU.  I can live stream the whole races without any commercial interruptions, and commentary is by John Hindaugh and Alan McNish, of Radio LeMans.  Louis Becket is the pit lane reporter.  For LeMans, they bring in more comentators, including Grahm Goodwinn.  It's a much better way to watch the race, start to finish.  If you have a smart TV, you can airplay it onto the TV, so you don't have to watch your laptop the whole race.  Last Saturday, I also watched the 24 hours of the Nurburgring.  Turned out to be an exciting race.

That being said, if you get hooked on streaming races, it's going to cut into your data allowance (1024Gb)  For an extra $50.00 you can switch to unlimited data, so not a problem.  I called comcast and told them my cable bill (Triple Play) is already obscene, and the agent worked the numbers and got me into a different package than I had, which gives me all the premium movie channels, unlimited data, and no rental fee for the DVR, and I ended up paying less than I was before.  It's worth a try.  I don't miss FS2 at all now.  All the racing I want to see is either on YouTube, or through streaming packages like the one I mentioned with the WEC.  I have another one with Virgin Australia Supercars.  Get to see all the races, including Bathurst 1000, complete w/o commercial interruption.

I too missed the last twenty laps of the Indy 500 because I had recorded it.  It's available now on YouTube.   Good luck.

At this point, Comcast/Xfinity are at a virtual standstill. Fox Sports wants too much per customer and Comcast/Xfinity refuses to raise the price to cover the cost.

Obviously, they have been deadlocked for many years. Don't both sides realize the cord cutters are moving in and they don't care.

Re: Why does Comcast not carry Fox Sports 2 (formerly Fuel TV)?

The Fox Sports 2 ship has sailed.  It's never going to happen on Comcast.  Another controversy is happening on another thread; how many of you have tried to access the STARZ app on your Apple TV or Firestick or smart TV?  Comcast won't let you, even if you are a STARZ subscriber on the cable side.  Apparently, Comcast is in a snit because STARZ is offering a stand alone streaming service, much like HBO now or Netflix, and they are charging less for this service than COMCAST charges to have STARZ on your cable line up.  You can stilll stream STARZ on the Xfinity app, however the offerings are more limited than what you would be able to see if you were streaming via the STARZ app.  

 

This is another example how COMCAST could care less about what it's customers would like to watch.  Because of their intransigence, many more people are cutting the cord and investing in streaming services (for much less than what they would pay for cable).  The downside to this is the amount of data you use for your internet.  Because much of what I would want to watch on FS2 I now stream, my data usage went over the limit for the last few months.  I had to step up to unlimited data for an extra $50.00 a month.
