Re: Fox 2 still not in CC lineup

Why doesn't Comcast/Xfinity carry Fox Sports 2?????. I was with Dish for 14 years. Switched to you guys and love the True HD(dish did not have) though they say they do. Internet and phone awesome. I DON'T get it. Stop telling us ( you are working on it) cause your not apparently. Just tell me why

Re: Fox 2 still not in CC lineup

Don’t look for it anytime soon. Internet is great. Drop cable and go for a streaming service. Much cheaper. And YouTube TV and Hulu both carry local channels. I’m very happy with YouTube TV. It was good enough to switch me over from Hulu. And Comcast only offered me FS2 in SD. Now I get them all in HD with YouTube TV. And unlimited DVR. Cable is dying. Fast. And for good reason.

That is the way to go! Watch Comcast will come out with a comparison service to keep its subscribers, its a matter of time

Re: Fox 2 still not in CC lineup

Actually Comcast is already working on a streaming only service. Though I highly doubt that it will include channels from it's higher priced cable tiers. Don’t have that issue with YouTube TV. And I’m not restricted to watching ANY channels only on my home network.

Well, what have we here?

Alas! I just read on my monthly bill (of course, after the sticker shock wore off) that FS2 will be available in my area, Minneapolis/Saint Paul, Minnesota, beginning on December 19, 2017; channels 740 and 1209 (I assume one of which will be HD, but you never know with these clowns). Merry Christmas, I guess. It's only been four years, roughly forty-eight monthly bills. However, I'm not convinced that FS2 is actually Fox Sports 2. It could just be another ploy. 

 

US fails to qualify for the World Cup. Fox paid all that money to gain the broadcast rights, and the US does not qualify. Good luck with those 0.8 million viewers, about 1/30 of what the ratings were in 2014 (although I'll likely be one of them; go Argentina!).

 

In a way, that is poetic justice.

I think it stinks that I can not watch the wvu football game because it is on fs2 tonight at 8pm. Since fs2 isn't carried by comcast in the pittsburgh area I am stuck listening to it or going to a bar to watch it on directv. I feel because of this we should be compensated in some sense.

In reviewing your account, I do see some issues that need some attention that will improve your video quality.

 

I'm seeing some signal level issues that may require a technician visit to resolve. I have asked that someone on our local team review your account (I did not see any technician visits listed at your address in the past 30 days) so that we can start the troubleshooting process and get this resolved.


A technician visit may be required so that the signal levels can be reviewed and adjusted if necessary. There is no charge if the issue is determined to be with our equipment or originating outside your home.

Re: Fox Sports 2 additions on 12/19

So here's the thing.  If FS2 is getting added to some areas, it must mean that Fox and Comcast have finally agreed over broadcast rights, etc.  So why can't Comcast simply come out and say that FS2, possibly the most demanded channel, will be generally available in all areas on a specific date, and why only in SD?  It could easily replace one of the shopping networks, which could move to SD.  The constant blase attitude of the support personnel to customer requests, and the limited distribution of information just doesn't present Comcast as a true customer-oriented organization.  Maybe the government needs to make it illegal for cable companies to have regional jurisdictions (monopolies).  A bit of direct competition would be good for everyone.  I won't go to satellite, having seen the quality during bad weather, so I am stuck with this or something like Sling TV.
