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

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....

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: I want Fox Soccer Channel in HD!

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.

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.

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

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

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.

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). . .

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

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.

Re: I want Fox Soccer Channel in HD!

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).

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.

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.

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

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.
