Ofcourse I agree with markdartj about FXX, however I was pleased to see that they are running
the series "Sports Night". It's an early series by Aaron Sorkin (Westwing and Newsroom).
You might want to check it out.
RacingGirl - have you gotten anything back from the
"email@example.com address other than the computer generated message thanking you for your concerns? I've been sending them emails too to no avail. I can't believe we are starting The Chase with no FS2 coverage.
Nope, Comcast does not care in fact they want FS2 (Fuel) to die because Fox is over charging for it. I"ll give them a month or two to sort out the demand for FS2 and if they do not add it to the normal sports package with Velocity, NBC sports, etc.. then i'm just leaving. Directv has everything we want i just dont want to pay the extra $ for an internet connection seperate from my content feed.
well Comcast..maybe it is now time to find a replacemant for you...we are older people my husband is retired t.v is what he likes and foxsports2 was one of the things he liked. NOW I find out you took it off..okay its your ball your rules...you remove channels we like, your customer service is a joke and the price is going up...REALLY!!!!!! rethink this please....Susan Donalds. 😞
why is Comcast not carrying Fox Sports 2? Because Speed was replaced with Fox Sports 1, who has transferred most of Nascar actions to Fox Sports 2, i am now missing a lot of my Nascar events such as practices, Race Day, Victory Lane - it is very frustrating!!!!!!
Nascar Fans are feeling the Comcast Soccer Fan pain. At least I can finally watch the Premier League in HD. I am just counting the days until I move and I can get satellite and dropping Comcast like a hot piece of coal.
I am soooooooooooo mad at comcast. I love soccer,American football is so slow, so many commercials, and analysis.. There is a tennis network, golf network, basketball network, of course football. This sucks!! all i watched was fox soccer channel. NBC sports carries some of the load by carrying the BPL but thats just one league, All we get is one 30 minute show called fox soccer daily, thats BULL! Then at that the prices are still high. DirecTV here I'm come!!!!!
CARRY THE FREAKING CHANNEL COMCAST!!!
I'm so tired of Comcast, they are always lightyears behind everyone. It is absolutely ridiculous they don't have Fox Sports 2
I keep getting messages from comcast about how many people are upset about not getting Fox Sports 2. Doesn't comcast read about all the negative comments. WHEN ARE THEY GOING TO WAKE UP?? They are not very customer oriented
THEY JUST DONT CARE! They think the only customers that are upset are the ones commenting in this forum.They are not even thinking about the 10's of thousands of other customers who are upset as well and dont have time to complain on this worthless forum.
IF they did care... Then somebody would of responded to at least one of these posts by now.
When will Comcast have FS2 on there TV listings. We used to get all that is on FS2 on Speed now we only get FS1 which is good but doesn't carry everything we once had. We need both!!!
Comcast says they do not have any control over the Fox Sports network and that it is FS 2 that determines what areas will or won't receive FS 2. I tried to get an explanation from FS 1 "contact us" and was told they were only there to keep Fox Sports Website up and running. Go figure. There doesn't seem to be a straight answer available from any of these folks.
Maybe if all of the customers who are upset with Comcast's lack of interest and or ability to control their own programming dropped them and went to another provider they would begin to get the message. Probably not!
I have the same problem with FS2.
I called Comcast yesterday spent 15 minutes on hold and then got disconnected and called back and left my number with the computer system. 20 minutes later I got a call back from a young lady who could not find anything about FS2 or Fox Sports 2 for my area in Zip 30214.
She did say she "Thought" she had seen a memo about it. So maybe it's in the works.
As of mid year Compact was supposed to have an agreement with Fox to carry all Fox offerings including Fuel (FS2).
I want my SPEED channel back. I do not like Fox Sports 1. It has very little, if at all on NASCAR or any other racing series. Fox Sports 1, is just one more channel, added to the half dozen other channels, that talk about football. Pro football...College football...High School football, all the time, football. Racing fans were so stoked when we got the SPEED channel. It was like, finally a channel about motorsports. And now, no channels about motorsports..........only sport channels about football and baseball and basketball. If NASCAR added a ball, would we get our SPEED channel back or at least Fox Sports 2. Or is Comcast too cheap---(it rhymes with cast). You surely charge us to much for so little. And even if you do decide to get Fox Sports 2, how long would we have to wait, months, years..........no thanks! We're just going to change our provider. Bye.
The ARCA race tonite on FS1 was rained out--so what channel is the race on tomorrow--FS2 which I cannot get---race fans time to change cable providers !!!
I am a die-hard NASCAR fan and I play many Fantasy NASCAR games. I watch all NASCAR practices to get an edge on my competition. However, despite ordering and paying extra for all your Sports programming, I do not get Saturday practices because they are on FS2. FS2 is not a channel you carry. In 45 days I am closing on my newly purchased house. If FS2 is not available by then, I will not only switch my cable viewing to Direct TV/Dish, I will ditch my home phone and find another Internet provider just to spite your company. I don't deserve this treatment. End of Story.... Period!
With Speed going away, Fox sports 1 has switched most of the good shows to Fox sports 2 that Comcast doesn't get! Can Comcast get with the 1st century and get Fox sports 2?
Barret Jackson auction is this weekend on Fox sports 2! Any idea how I'm gong to watch it short of flying to Vegas this weekend?
Another Saturday and NO NASCAR! in any series to watch, like I use to when we had the SPEED channel. Fox Sports 1 lied about how much racing we would see and said nothing about Fox Sports 2 until the last minute, which we do not have where I live. Thanks for nothing..........literally.
P.S. 'Crowd Goes Wild', boring.
I want Fox Sports 2 for programming but Im not sure how much I would watch. The Blue Border Box at the bottom of Fox Sport is like twice the size of ESPN's or any of the news networks, Its totally out of hand and it makes it nearly impossible to watch ITS HUGE, and their even doing it on the NFL broadcast. No I have that along with Joe Buck personally ruining my weekends. An how and is NBCs NASCAR coverage going to be That many weeks of Kyle Petty with be intolerable!
BUT Truly the channel I want in New York/Jersey Metro Comcaast version is AXIS TV. Mark Cuban's channel formally HDNet. It is one of the best channels like everything is LIVE and very music-centric! I had it on Comcast in Chicago and my parents have it in Ohio? Why not here??? Its a sick channel and lots of great music and its all recorded in HD specifically 1080p at 120Hrz refresh rate applicable cameras. Its un-real
Convo I had with Comcast this morning: (I am in the Nashville area) (I removed the agents last name)

Emmanuela : Hello, Jeff.
Emmanuela : I can see here you have some concern with your channel line up, is that right?
JEFF: I would like to know when Comcast is adding FoxSports2 to my lineup. I pay extra for the sports tier package and I don't get this. I watch NASCAR activities and it is shown on FS2 instead of FS1 on Saturdays. I am upset enough to leave COMCAST.
Emmanuela : Oh I am sorry to hear that, Jeff.
Emmanuela : No worries,You've reached the right department. I'd be happy to help you and provide you with excellent customer service today. ill personally check the information regarding Foxsport2.

Emmanuela : Also, just to set proper expectation, the Fuel channel (foxsport2 ) channel is under Digital Preferred.
JEFF: ok.... well with no news in sight, I guess I will contact Direct TV this weekend and get set up with them. How do I return my Comcast equipment?
Emmanuela : I apologize for this matter, Jeff. I hope you would give comcast more time to work on this. You will need to visit local office to return devices.
JEFF: ok thank you. I will go ahead and post this news on the Comcast forum board so the many others who are asking this very same question can avoid calling you guys to complain.
Emmanuela : You are most welcome.
Emmanuela : Thank you for bringing this to our attention, Jeff.
It's the same two step crock I got with them but at least they didn't discontinue the chat as they did with me when I asked them how it could be possible that they didn't choose their station programming. I guess they do not want to keep customers around.
This is a reply and a thank you to all of those who have posted about the loss of auto racing coverage. It is indefensible. Bottom line, if Comcast can't figure out how to offer what its customers are paying for and have every right to expect, it's off to Dish or DirecTV. I wonder if Comcast is figuring that we will all forget the issue once the season is over. Not likely. I am so very close to dropping Comcast. All that is said about it being a dinosaur is true, which is a shame because when it began it was such an excellent business model. Even its customer service was outstanding. Now the CSR's are pleasant and try to be helpful, but they cannot keep afloat a sinking product. Frankly, I am very glad I don't have any money invested in the company.
I am in the South Jersey area and Nascar used to be carried on the Speed Channel. It is now FoxSports1. Nascar when not carried on ESPN is being carried by FoxSports2. We do not get FS2 on our channel lineup on Comcast here in NJ. I called Comcast Customer Support today and requested that FS2 be added to our lineup. She took my request and told me when they get a certain # of requests they will add it to the Channel Lineup. Please all you Nascar fans in Southern New Jersey take 5 minutes and call the Comcast Customer Support line so we can get this channel in our area. The more we call the faster they will consider adding it. Do it now so we can watch the 2013 Nascar Chase programing. Thanks!
This has all been such a mess. We all got SPEED channel and they carried most of the NASCAR practices and qualifying. SPEED changed to Fox Sports 1 and the coverage disappeared. Now it is on Fox Sports 2 and Comcast is not providing that channel. I am a very unhappy Comcast customer. Do you think they care? I think not.
