Yes; MotoAmerica is going to be broadcast on FS2– and I don’t think Comcast carries that either!

comcast added it in "MOST" areas about a year ago

 

I would say 90% of Comcast systems have it ( i know Michigan was added about a year ago)

Fox sports 2 is channel 272 for your zip code

 

 

Now, its only in SD, but that's better than nothing and there are easy ways to watch it in HD if you have various devices like chromecast or even an xbox

Re: Bein Sport

Standard Def. Figures, that’s what Bein was when I had it. “Better than nothing” is a great way to treat customers. Frankly; MotoAmerica is not of much interest to me— no Ducati participation. As I stated in this forum a long time ago; I now watch MotoGP and World Superbike through their respective websites. In HD, with tremendous added features.

Re: Bein Sport

I'm in the process of cutting the cord.  The only live sports I care about is F1 and MotoGP.  As soon as I figure out where to get it, I'm done with cable tv for good and I was a customer before Comcast/Xfinity existed.  I'm so tired of paying increasingly more and getting less.

Re: Bein Sport

Watch MotoGP through their website. Excellent! Guessing F1 has the same type of thing (I’ll bet that would cost quite a bit, even though Bernie is gone!).
Regarding the Comcast apologist chiding me that I have a channel I didn’t think I had: You are correct; I’m wrong. Please forgive me.
But, standard def stinks for watching sports. Maybe I’m spoiled.

Re: Bein Sport

LOL@ chiding. Just pointing out a fact.

I live in Michigan and am glad I get the Pac-12 network at all. (SD only)

 

There are no channels exclusive to the sports and entertainment package that are available in HD

 

Yes, sports in SD is awful, but is better than nothing.

Glad you got a chuckle from my goofy post! Important to laugh as much as possible. (I get plenty of chances; I screw up a lot and get to laugh at myself!)

what is unacceptable is beIN withholding their channel from major providers like Comcast **AND** Directv.

 

a niche channel that is hemorrhaging content and will be out of business (USA version) within 18 months.. I will gleefully dance on their grave

Re: Bein Sport

Uh. We're talking about channels that are offered that are only available in SD...

Re: BeIN Sports

It appears the Conference USA football games that were on BeIN last season have migrated ovewr to NFL network

 

BeIN was so foolish to play this game of chicken with providers.

why not ask BeIN not be so adamant about being in a wider distribution tier than what they had before.

 

BeIN should be a sports pack channel
