My understanding is that Xfinity doesn't carry FS2 - has that changed?

I would prefer HD but at this point any progress is a possitive. Which tier(s) will FS2 be available on? Digital Starter with FS1? Digital Prefferred and/or Sports and Entertainment?

Re: Fox Sports 2

ComcastTeds, can you let us know when FS2 will be available in California - specifically the San Francisco Bay Area?

Contributor

Re: Fox Sports 2 additions on 12/19

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.

Re: Fox Sports 2 additions on 12/19

I find it amazing that i live 14 miles from the Comcast home office and still will not be getting Fox Sports 2.  You would at least think the home city would be getting the channel?   We have competion in the area and they have this channel as well as others  which Comcast doesn't offer.

I’m out of patience. I can’t watch the WVU games because they are putting them on FS2.  Comcast picture and service in our area is terrible.

Re: Fox Sports 2 additions on 12/19

the only good thing is I was able to watch the wvu game on fox sports go surprisingly. I figured I wouldn't be able to but I signed in with my comcast information and it let me watch it on fs2.

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.

So it still won't be available in Chicago?!? Nice work. Smh

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.

Re: Fox 2 still not in CC lineup

 Not only that comcast is the one that has the contract for the Looney Toons Bugs Bunny Cartoon network3. They won't show Bugs Bunny just other stupid stuff. That is not funny at all. I'm forced to use comcast too becaus of bussiness.

Re: Fox Sports 2

You are not serious with your reply, right?  Or you are being truly patronizing.  This thread alone over 4 years shows how  many folks have filled out the ridiculous form to absolutely no avail.  Com cast has not added any new HD channels in over years.  I have UVERSETV to supplemention decent sports coverage.  To not even carry the channel in HD that covers your Nascar races is stupid and demeaning.  Worst customer service of any company ever.

I am showing that Fox Sports 2 is available in your area on channel 741 and in HD on channel 1209 as part of the current level of service that you already have. Enjoy.

Our triple-play bill is now over $250/mo. It's after the 12/19 "roll-out" date for FS2.  I check the xfinity on-line TV listings and STILL NO FS2.
