Fox sports 2 NJ area

Hey Comcast when will you be adding Fox sports 2 to the new Jersey area. This is bull!!! With all the nonsense channels you offer why not offer one more channel that covers action sports. Couldn't even stream on Fox sports app bc it was blocked even though I signed in with my Xfinity account. So hey Xfinity what can we do to get this channel added to the lineup???????

Re: FS2! Why doesn't Xfinity carry FS2 in our area? Women's World Cup Qualifying please!!

I just missed the Monster Energy Cup with Supercross. It is a big event and I don't agree with it not being shown on a major network so everyone can watch it. You would think that xFinity would have FS2 considering how much money they charge us monthly. I'm considering going back to Direct Tv.

Re: FS2! Why doesn't Xfinity carry FS2 in our area? Women's World Cup Qualifying please!!

Ya I pay over $200 a month for internet, cable,and home phone and I just had to drive 35 minutes to my parents house to watch Monster Energy Cup Supercross because I dont get FS2 (but I get FS1...confusing). And while I was there watch about 5 ATV motocross races I had them DVR for me because I dont get MAV TV channel either. Considering my parents pay less than half of what I do with Direct TV and I'm upgraded to X1 Platform, I think Comcast should at minimum offer the channels Direct TV does.

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

So I'm all set up to watch the Petite Le Mans. Got my coffee. The first hour, so far so good. Second hour, a fricking college football game starts. IMSA lied. Either that or Comcast and Fox Sports lied to IMSA. Sorry to anyone who I told would be able to watch the race in it's entirety. I didn't know that we were being lied to. I guess that's just the way it is in todays modern discourse. I just went with what I was told.

Fox Sports 2 to Jacksonville?

Are there any plans to bring FS2 to Jacksonville? I'm a big Australian Rules fan, yet FS2 is the main place they carry it alongside Fox Soccer Plus (which, you guessed it, if you don't get FS2, that won't come up either even with Fox Sports GO). Not to mention other big soccer matches I cover for a podcast get bumped to FS2. I've been a Comcast/Xfinity customer for some 15 years, so I would love for this to be rectified so I avoid shopping around and going elsewhere.

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

I upped my plan to the Sports Package so I could get the various ESPN outlets to follow F1.  I went to FS2 that is on my cable system only to be told 'Not Authorized'.  Bull droppings!

Apologies, we don't have any additional areas to announce just yet for Fox Sports 2.  I have shared your request and passion with the right teams here at Comcast.

Re: Fox Sports 2 additions on 12/19

So b/c I live in NJ I'm not able to get FS2? I most likely pay higher taxes than anyone else...what a crime. I'm moving.

Re: Fox Sports 2 additions on 12/19

I'm sorry you do not get FS2 in NJ. A day late and a dollar short, I opened my bill this month an found out that we are getting FS2 in standard def only. My first thought? Hooray? At LAST!!? No, none of those. It was "meh". 

 

You see, my interest in being able to receive FS2 was predicated on the fact I would be able to see more motorsports. Every year that the 24 hours of Daytona comes around, or the Le Mans 24 hours, Fox would show the first hour or two on FS1, or on their main broadcast affilliate. Then the rest of the race, on year including the finish, was bumped to FS2 so they could show a NCAA DIvision 20 game of tiddly winks on FS1. 

 

Fox is now getting out of the motorsports buisiness. Rumor has it that even NASCAR is on it's way out at FOX. Gone is the "Hollywood Hotel" travelling studio, bringing the insight of another set of hosts to each race. Now they'll be at a central location, like the talking heads during the football broadcasts. Word is that when the next contract is up for grabs, NASCAR will be looking for a single media company, probably NBC. 

 

So now, with FS2 available in December, I'll be able to watch a tractor pull from Cornville Iowa, or a pig race from anywhere in Oklahoma.

That leaves me here, after....I don't know how many posts I've made on this topic..for four years now, at a point where I really don't care any more. I now have more racing to watch than I can possibly keep up with, thanks to YouTube and series run streaming packages, and all this without commercial breaks. To all who still regret not being able to access FS2, keep up the good fight, there may be something you want to see on FS2; however as I've made clear, IMOHO.....You aren't missing anything.

Needless to say, this is my final word on the matter: "meh".

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

I live in Lynchburg, VA now. I moved from Louisville. I have always had FS2 and now I don’t see it in my lineup. I don’t even remember ever having a problem not getting a channel with AT&T or TIME WARNER so why now? Come to think of it I don’t get ID either which is Investigative Discovery. When I go to the options page to add channels it’s not on any list. Please add this channel. I am huge UFC fan and I’m missing out. I shouldn’t have to go to a friends house to watch my favorite program. I will have to switch carriers soon.

Couple quick questions for those of you who have acccess Fox Sports 2:

 

  • Is it still in standard definition?
  • Do you have access to Fox Sports 2 content through the Fox Sports Go app and is it in HD?

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

mnsportsgeek: I get FS2 in HD. It is available thru both Fox Sports GO and Fox Now iPhone apps. (Where it is also HD.) Those apps let you screen mirror to the TV with the HDMI adapter doodad unlike the Xfinity Streaming app.
