Re: FSC HD Fox Soccer Channel

Nothing here in the Twin Cities as of 3 AM CST as expected. Really pathetic Comcast. If Philly gets the channel in HD then the rest of us should. Simple as that.

Re: I want Fox Soccer Channel in HD!

I've sent Andy Gray a letter formally requesting he refer to football as the "modestly attractive" game until at which point FSC is no longer broadcast in sparkling 420i.

All previous replies were right on subject.

We're simply pointing out, how Comcast has all those channels in HD, channels watched by nobody, but we can't get FSC in HD.

Not to mention some "Live Well" (what the heck is it?), Food Network (it's very important to see every single potato in HD) and two Hallmark channels (anyone watched any movie on Hallmark channel ever?)

Re: I want Fox Soccer Channel in HD!

Yeah because those Lifetime channels really are that vitally important... with all their content that can easily be put OnDemand.

Re: FSC HD Fox Soccer Channel

Unless if the people at the Comcast offices here just aren't informed of anything I can almost guarantee that the Twin Cities market is NOT getting FSC HD any time soon.

Re: I want Fox Soccer Channel in HD!

EPL is heating up and '11 European club cup football is drawing to a close. This season marks another big swing and a miss for Comcast. Thank God I've got 3 different HD versions of the Lifetime channel.

Our channels only go up to 999 in the MD/DC area, so maybe they'll be slotted in the 900s, if offered.  You Philly pholk need to let us know if you actually get these channels Tuesday(in time for the 2nd legs of the UEFA semis).

3 more days fellas

 

hopefully Fresno area is a part of the area getting FSC in HD.

Re: FSC HD Fox Soccer Channel

In my market I think that comcast broadcasts over 100 channels in both SD and HD. I just think it makes more sense to downconvert at the customer level, instead of broadcasting two channels of the same programming.

SD channels don't use much bandwidth compared to HD. From my memory in the space one HD channel takes Comcast can fix about 8-10 SD channels.

Re: FSC HD Fox Soccer Channel

I registered just to add another vote/appeal for the FSCHD, FSC+HD, and GOLHD for the MD/DC market.  It does look like Philly is getting it next week, along with others, so I have some hope that Comcast is finally listening to its customers.  Most games on FSC are downconverted HD feeds with the sides chopped(you do miss 25% of what's going on) and GOLTV is just plain grainy.  I specifically bought the sports package for these two channels(was hoping to get ESPND too, but guess you have to buy the whole spanish package for that).  Maybe Comcast will offer a Soccer package someday(don't watch any of the other sport entertainment package channels). . .

Re: FSC HD Fox Soccer Channel

U-Verse must be downconverting it to SD then.

 

In regards to FSC HD no word on when the Twin Cities market is getting it.

Re: FSC HD Fox Soccer Channel

I just did a little research and supposedly AT&T U-Verse has it in SD. But with the programming offered HD makes more sense

Does St. Paul get Smithsonian Channel on SD?? If so all I can say is you lucky devil.

Re: FSC HD Fox Soccer Channel

I just called the local Comcast office here in the Twin Cities. Pretty worthless except I got told that Comcast has "all the HD channels." I then listed off a bunch Comcast does not have including:

 

Fox Soccer HD

Fox Soccer Plus HD

GolTV HD

HDNet

HDNet Movies

Smithsonian HD

BBC America HD

OWN HD

Several premium movie channels in HD

 

Only to get... "yeah but we got it all" from him in response. After I just rambled quite a few Comcast does not have in HD.

Re: FSC HD Fox Soccer Channel

Verison FIOS is reportedly adding FSC HD on or around April 14th. AT&T UVerse is rumored to be adding it soon as this Friday. If I hear anything more I'll post it.

Apparently, it can be done: http://www.brotherlygame.com/2011/3/13/2048949/comcast-adding-fox-soccer-channel-hd-philadelphia-apr...

"Comcast subscribers inside the city of Philadelphia! Starting "on or around" April 12, those with the $6.95 per month Sports Entertainment Package will see Fox Soccer Channel HD added to their cable lineup on channel 1512 (and GOL TV HD on channel 1513)"

"it's a good step forward for Fox Sports executives, who to this point had only managed to get Comcast to supply subscribers in Albuquerque, New Mexico with a high definition feed"

 

Google also finds this topic, if searched for "fox soccer channel in hd".

It's around 20th position on page 1.

That is funny, watching it in the menu screen! I'll probably end up doing that this weekend.

 

FSC in SD is crappy but GolTV on a big screen is almost unwatchable.

Re: FSC HD Fox Soccer Channel

Still NEED FSC in HD in California. This is crazy, NFL, MLB and NHL all in HD, the last one is FSC. Where are you HD??? The SD channel is a joke, I actually bring up the menu, so on my 55" the picture is at least watchable in the small screen in the corner, LOL. Comcast fail....

fox soccer channel in hd

when are we getting fox soccer channel in HD. direct t.v already has it

Regular Contributor

Re: FSC HD Fox Soccer Channel

Thank you so much for posting that info. That's the same date Philly is getting the channel which leads me to suspect that more markets will get FSC HD on/around April 12th.

Re: FSC HD Fox Soccer Channel

Just saw the new channel additions for the Savannah, GA area and FSC-HD is added on april 12. Channel 517.

Re: FSC HD Fox Soccer Channel

It would be nice too watch the EPL and Serie A in HD! Also the champions league games

 

GOLTV HD would be a nice little addtion to as I'm watching more and more of La Liga.

With the SD.

 

 

Once the season is over I’m thinking of dropping the sports package and not picking it back up until HD channels are added. I usually keep the sports package and watch the other programming on the soccer channels. But not this time as I missed games this season since they were on FSC+ which Comcast doesn’t even have either.

Re: FSC HD Fox Soccer Channel

Well to be honest Philly is also dropping the west coast HD feeds for the movie channels the same day they are getting channels such as FSC HD. Plus from my understanding at least my market (St. Paul) still has room to spare to add more HD channels so FSC HD can still be added.

Contributor

Re: FSC HD Fox Soccer Channel

I'm not sure what the scoop is with Albuquerque, but Philadelphia just became the first market to get the latest increase in HD channels. Markets that got the World Of More upgrade went from around 35 to around 100 HD channels. Philadelphia just went from 100 to around 140. That increased capacity enabled Comcast to bring them FSC HD.

 

I'm not sure if other markets must receive this latest upgrade before getting the channel. Given that my market only recently received the World Of More upgrade, if things go at the same pace then I'd venture my area won't get this latest one until late 2012 or early 2013.

Regular Contributor

Re: FSC HD Fox Soccer Channel

Great news for those in Philly. On April 12th both Fox Soccer HD and GolTV HD will be availble on channels 1512 and 1513. That makes Philly the second market to get Fox Soccer HD with Albuquerque, NM being the first. Hopefully with Philly getting the channel that means other markers are on the verge of getting it added soon as well.

Re: I want Fox Soccer Channel in HD!

I frequent several big internet forums and I posted following message on them, inviting people to give their support in this very topic.

This is the message:

"I love soccer and as you know, there is nothing better than a soccer in HD.
Comcast has Fox Soccer Channel, but it's delivered in standard definition.
Demands for getting FSC in HD have been floating over the net for quite some time, so I decided to start a small campaign on the subject at Comcast forum.
If you're a soccer fan and you're a Comcast customer, please voice your opinion at I want Fox Soccer Channel in HD!
Let's see, if Comcast cares."

 

Whoever cares, please, do the same.

When this topic will balloon, hopefully it'll put some more pressure on Comast and....we'll see.

I am in that frame of mind also - I have 5 months left on a two year contract - I will move

Re: I want Fox Soccer Channel in HD!

I'm glad, someone revived this topic Smiley Happy

I had an idea to keep this topic running and keep asking very same question over and over until we'll get some results.

 

Isn't it: "Customer is always right"?

 

We'll see if Comcast cares, or not.

 

Some "smart alek" stated in this topic earlier, that they do.

Re: I want Fox Soccer Channel in HD!

I've got 4 more months on my contract with Comcast. If my FSC is still in standard def at that point I'm off to satellite. It's that simple. I've been waiting 3 years and I'm certainly not the only FSC subscriber wondering What the hec is taking so long.
