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.
can you post this new lineup, I would like to see it, I live in midtown, and Pooler, west Chatham, Hinesville already got it except us, Comcast's website doesn't show it yet. If not here could you post it in AVSforums Savannah or Comcast thread. Thanks
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....
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.
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.
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.
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
BBC America 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.
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). . .
Wouldn't it be a mire judicious and practical use of bandwidth for comcast to not broadcast channels in both SD and HD? One would think that they could supply set top boxes which could downconvert to SD for customers who don't have HD capable equipment.
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.
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).
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.
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?)
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.
15 mins till FSC in HD goes live!
come on mama gimmie something good!
well if comcast doesn't add FSC in HD tonight at least I know that our Philly brothers have it and so does new mexico enjoy it guys! we get to see gols in wonderous SD in 2011. who'd thunk it?
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.
here you can see what providered have FSC HD by zip code and also has a link for you to request it and Foxsoccer sends a email to your provider.. pretty cool.
