I agree.. I like my tv/internet service from comcast, but La Liga is very important to me and I will need to look elsewhere if Comcast doesn't carry a channel that shows it.
It took them over 2 years to add Fox soccer in HD. COMCAST sucks. I don't expect to see this channel in Baltimore city anytime soon. But I would me super happy to be surprised, for once. And that would help me to stay with comcast, of course.
COMCAST, any official word from you? Do you actually care for your customers? This is a good time to show that. Thanks.
I wrote this in another thread, but it's more relevant in this one (thanks for creating it):
The problem is that we need numbers. My guess is that it would be easier to pressuare Comcast to get Bein 2 (in Spanish) for the Latino package. That's at least in the short term.
The challenge for even that to happen is that most people who want to watch La Liga are under the impression that they are going to be able to see it just like last season. They have no idea that some radical changes have happened. You can't protest if you don't know there is stuff to protest about!
My guess is that La Liga will have to start and these people will start hearing results of games and slowly start wondering how come GolTV or ESPN Deportes didn't show those games... And then they will start digging and realize how incomplete the Comcast Latino package has become...
Please add my to the list requesting beIN Sport USA. Watching their stream of of an Arsenal, Man City friendly and they have serious buffer issues that the TV channel would avoid. Fox Soccer HD also would be nice, but i do not wish to threadjack or get greedy, thx for listening in advance.
i just called multipe providers and what i found is that directtv is having Bein sport 1&2 , if comcast isnt going to add those channels , i in addition to several friends are going to switch to direct tv on August 15 th .
please everyone who is a comcast costumer should threaten t do that as well.
I'll add my voice to that. FoxSoccer may still have the EPL, but La Liga and Serie A are the other major soccer leagues and I might bail on Comcast entirely if I can't get the new channel.
Please please please please...Comcast if you are listening, please add beIN Sport, I will have to move to different provider if you do not get beIN Sport....Liga, Seria A, French Lig...i will miss soccer
I would also like to add my request that Comcast add Beinsport. I am a big fan of soccer and virutally all of the major European soccer leagues are now only going to be available on this new channel. Thanks.
Please add the BEIN Sport channels.
DirectTV has them already so if I cannot watch La Liga and Serie A when the seasons start I will have to switch providers.
Comcast must ADD BEIN SPORT HD in english and spanish to their channel lineup SOON!!!!!!
Thousands of customers will realize this weekend that they won't be able to watch their favorite soccer team on TV and will be extremely upset!
Please go ahead and ADD this new channel "BEIN SPORT HD" before it's too late..
I am a Barcelona, Inter, and PSG supporter who will have no choice but to switch providers in Comcast doesn't add Bein Sport USA. With La Liga moving to Bein Sport there is no need for Comcast to even bother with GolTV, they should just replace it with Bein. I have no problem if this causes my sports package to increase in price or it is offered as a separate premium channel. Just make it available.
From what I see it's pointless to ask/beg comcast to add any channels. Chicago area does not even have FS HD and FS+ SD or HD, despite many, many requests from customers. If you like your soccer the only alternative is to switch the company. I know they don't care, but I don't care either, if they are or not. I'll just move on an that's it. The bad part is that some pople are stuck with comcast living in buildings/areas that have no alternative. I feel sorry for them, but for the rest I encourage you to switch ASAP. Don't be fooled that comcast will cave in following your requests and/or quit threats, they don't care, it's only business, and they are so big they can afford to lose you. Just my two cents, though!
comcast sucks! and lies! but mostly sucks! ... and lies!
it was huge bummer finding out today that goltv is no longer broadcasting la liga, and the same for calcio on fsc. it was even worse realizing that i have comcast, which means it be quite sometime before they do anything about it. it was bad enough going through 2 years of "fsc in hd" debacle.
knowing the snail-paced movement of comcast, it's too late for the beginning of the season, but I dont think it would too difficult for them to do something about it soon.
please add beIN and let's us enjoy some good football
If Comcast does not add soon the BEIN SPORT USA channel to watch La LIga games I will have to change providers and I think I will not be the only one
Same here, I do not speak spanish but I paid for the spanish package last year just to watch la liga, I hate to leave comcast but I have to if they can not add bein sports
Directv just became the first american provider to actually add the channel to their lineup in the past week.
Supposedly deals are being worked out or have been finalized with other providers but no other releases have been made on which providers those are with.
I just found out that I won't be able to watch La Liga games on Comcast. TERRIBLE
Calling Direct TV right now... (BTW Comcast, now that there is no turning back...) Xfinity is indeed a badly ran corporation... first the Atari-like dvr boxes and now this
YES -- PLEASE -- I'm already paying extra for a latino package to watch La Liga (and not even in HD). If I lose La Liga, I will definitely be looking to replace my tv/internet/phone package.
Please add beIN SPORTS to the latino package! The main reason I have tv is so I can watch La Liga! without that I dont really need my TV. Im sure alot of people would appreciate it. I would hate to have to swith tv carriers =[
There are a lot of people who are going to find out about this on Sunday when people cant watch Barca and Madrid.
Right now this is all over the news its on Yahoo.com bussiness week, ESPN etc.
I am thinking Comcast Is going to have to cave in as there are going to get a lot of bad press about this. Lets keep calling, tweeting and posting. Its time to hurt you Comcast. Comcast Bill do you hear me?
