Re: Verizon FIOS Adding FS2 HD

Verizon FIOs isnt offered on my street being the lots are at least a acre in size. They can't get a million customers in a half mile so we don't get that option either. Shame what money does.

Why no Fox Sports 2?

Why doesn't comcast offer Fox Sports 2 channel. I understand DirectTV does so i might have to switch. Is there a good reason for not carrying it or can you tell me at least when you might carry it?

 

Thanks

Fox Sport 2

When, if ever are you going to listen to the request of your customers? I can go back years and find people complaining about this. Anyway, this weekend and another race I'll miss due to their crappy customer awareness and consideration. As I have said before, if there were another option in my area xfinity would be nothing more than a bad memory.

Re: Fox Sports 2 (formerly Fuel TV)

Was all excited to watch Dortmund vs. Bayern Munich, but of course its on FS2...this is a JOKE. "Home of the most live sports." According to whom? Going to Dish Network in the next month where they have bein in hd and fs1, fs2 in HD. What a concept. Comcast's silence says exactly what they think. "We don't care."

Re: Fox Sports 2 (formerly Fuel TV)

Dear Comcast,
I have been a loyal $250 per month paying customer for over eight years. I pay for premium Internet speeds and sports packages and yet I am not able to consume the most widely watched sport on the planet as a subscriber to your service. Having the local Seattle sounders game against Vancouver missing from your broadcast services is an indescribable miss on your part. As a long-time subscriber, I find your customer service and lack of attention to customer requests disturbing. I've never posted to a forum before; but can't stand this nonsense. My patience is up and i now intend to do something about it.

Re: Fox Sports 2 (formerly Fuel TV)

Yep, 27 pages and still nothing....

 

Note my post from back in early 2014, where I posted a link to Comcast's own page where they state "Are you ready for Fox Sports 1 and Fox Sports 2"?

 

http://forums.xfinity.com/t5/Channels-and-Programming/Fox-Sports-2-formerly-Fuel-TV/m-p/2001165#M432...

 

Strange that they removed that page which had the announcement.  Guess they figured people could call them out on their lie.  bottom line, they promised both channels in their announcemnt in Aug. 2013, but have never delivered.

Re: Fox Sports 2 (formerly Fuel TV)

RE Petite Le Mans.  Heck of a race, unusual result, but, too bad, Comcast Customers, you didn't get to see it because Comcast doen't think it "makes sense" to listen to their customers.  I'll tell you what doesn't make sense.  It doesn't make sense that while you advertise that you show the most sports; you really don't (there are other sports besides college football, NFL, NBA and MLB.).  While you advertise that "Comcast Cares"; you really don't.  Petite Le Mans was on FS2 and IMSA.com.  Thing is though, IMSA.com blacked out it's streaming when the race was being televised on FS2.  When is someone going to pull their head out and listen to your customers?

foxsports2 should be added to lineup

appears there have been requests for this sports network for years now and there is a sizeable audience for it.

 

being a fan of auto racing (WEC) I know the coverage by foxsports2 would be an excellent addition to comcast sports lineup of channels. 

 

lets do it!!!!

Why isn't MAVTV and fox2 offered

Why isn't MAVTV and fox sport 2 offered by comcast in Seabrook, NH.  I am tired of paying for the former "sport package" and not getting the racing programs that was on the "speed channel".  Must I turn to Direct TV after 19 years as  Comcast customer?

I'm also waiting for them to add FS2 in HD. I only get it in SD right now. 

 

I feel bad for you guys that don't get it at all, but it seems even more ridiculous that it's only offered in SD in most areas. It's 2015. Do people even have standard definition TVs anymore?

Only way to watch tonight is stream live from websites or wait until tomorrow when it's on Fox tv. Yes I know it blows big time but I will stream from my iPad to the big screen tonight. Xfinity / Comcast could care less about its consumers.

Re: Fox Sports 2 (formerly Fuel TV)

Big Champions League Group Stage Match coming up this Wednesday, and Arsenal happens to be involved; you know Arsenal, arguably the biggest of the Big Clubs in America. Lots of Arsenal shirts out there.

 

I can't wait to watch it...

 

Hold on...it appears the match vs Olympiacos FC is on FOX Sports 2.

 

Remind me again; why does FOX pay UEFA scores of millions of dollars to obtain Champions League broadcast rights, then decide to put the biggest of the Big Games on the weak and poorly-distributed FOX Sports 2? Certainly, no signs of genius there.

 

And, worse yet, Comcast/NBC sits idly by and refuses to strike a deal with FOX so they can begin airing FOX Sports 2. I'm starting to believe the NBC/Xifinity conspiracy theory: Time to punish FOX.

 

What a bunch of petulant fractious little children.

 

Still, it gets better. I wouldn't mind so much as FOX does offer a nice service in FoxSoccer2Go.com. In theory, subscribers have access to all Champions League games, anytime, anywhere (initially live, then, after a short delay, via replay mode). Unfortunately, I have to rely on Xfinity High Speed Internet to indulge. Talk about stoppage time; no doubt Xfinity is Top of the Table when it comes to Interruptions and Re-buffering.

 

Where are we at? We've all been waiting over two years for FOX Sports 2. Fast forward to 2018 and the FIFA World Cup. How much do you want to bet that the USA vs. Argentina Semi-Final (I exaggerate for effect only) will be on FOX Sports 2? Huge ratings...ESPN pulled in 30 million, FOX? Around 250,000.

 

Congrats to FOX and Xfinity. This would all make for an interesting Doctoral Thesis in Economics. Last I heard/read, they are squabbling over about $0.03 per subscriber. Oh, I know, I know; my simple mind just doesn't understand Big Business.

REALLY!!!!

 

To be more truthfull you should say that there are markets that have FS2 because it is a legacy contract and in point of fact Comcast has not "added" FS2 in a single market???? Just trying to keep things clear!!!

I've been a Comcast customer for over 25 years and I find not having FS2 HD and BEIN Sport HD unacceptable. The problem is I have no choice because there are no broadband cable/internet alternatives at my house.

 

This is a reason I would switch after 25+ years because I cannot watch what I want either on TV or stream on the internet (Fox2Go). I pay for the service and in this case extra for sport package with the intent of watching what I want when I want. HD channels have been added that I have never or will never watch. 

 

Come on Comcast, provide the channels people want. If it costs more then provide them in a package.

Re: Channel Ordering Packages

I've posted this before but maybe it needs a reposting?

When Comcast Ted says:

"We do offer FS2 in a few markets. There is no new news to announce at this time regarding additional areas."

 

Be aware that Comcast has NOT added FS2 to any of the markets that I'm aware of. The only markets that have FS2 are markets that Comcast has acquired and the legacy contract forces Comcast to honor the FS2 content.

 

I've asked repeatedly for Ted to give us a list of markets that have had FS2 "ADDED" to their available channels and to date I've not seen that list. I've been lead to believe that the answer is "zero"!

 

My personal belief is that you will see FS2 added to our channel lineup, the day after pigs are seen flying in formation, inverted!

Re: Fox Sports 2

I think it's funny that some of NASCAR's xfinity series races are going to be on Fox Sports 2. Comcast won't be able to show the series they sponsor. That's a sound investment move comcast, paying for something nobody can watch. What's next, a 24 hour commercial channel? The sad part is there is no other cable provider in my area. We have been asking for this channel for two years, so I think it's safe to say comcast doesn't care what their customers think.

When will comcast Xfinity offer Fox Sports 2?  Odd that Xfinity is the title sponsor of the NASCAR Xfinity Series but doesn't offer FS2 where a number of broadcasts are in the racing world or when races go overtime on FS1.  If anyone knows if Comcast will broadcast Fox Sprots 2 let me know, very disappointed new customer.
