Re: I want Fox Soccer Channel in HD!

You really need a good color commentator to keep you posted in these matches since a good 25% of the action takes place off the edge of the screen. My personal favorite is the Skynews broadcasts where the anchors are about 50% obscured by the edge of the screen. I'm paying extra for this?

Re: FSC HD Fox Soccer Channel

Seems to me that  (and market watch) is that Comcast will be left behind (again).

Carry on with the food network in HD (after all, i forget, thats what most Americans are in to),

Re: FSC HD Fox Soccer Channel

If that isn't a sign that Comcast needs to get FSC HD added to more system ASAP then I don't know what is. Really frustrating that we're going to be stuck with standard def with that CONCACAF finals game on tonight with Real Salt Lake in it.

Re: FSC HD Fox Soccer Channel

I want to unsubscribe to this discussion (switched to Direct last fall) but i can't stop checking the alerts to see who's still willing to shout into the Comcast vacuum. PICK a pull-the-plug date. WRITE a letter to Comcast mentioning all the names on this discussion. And CANCEL when they don't lift a finger. Preferably in time to get HD for the spring finals. You're missing some serious beauty.

I just prichased the MLS Direct Kick package, or I would consider looking for a new provider. I have hope that Comcast will add the HD channel this year, but I won't hold my breath.

Re: FSC HD Fox Soccer Channel

COMCAST--Get FSCHD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  As an absolute bare minimum, show all the games in wide-screen format, like you do Sky Sports News.  That way, we at least get all the screen.

COMCAST--get into the 21st century.

Fox Soccer Channel HD in Houston Market

Are there any plans to offer Fox soccer Channel in HD in the Houston/Conroe, TX market.  It is advertised as available by FOX but we don't have access to it in this market.

Re: Fox Soccer Channel HD in Houston Market

So Fox Soccer is now putting an emphasis on Major League Soccer with their new "Soccer Night In America" campaign which will include an new pre/post game studio, slo-mo cameras, new on screen graphics, and other things. All these things in HD means nothing to me when Comcast still doesn't have the channel available to me in HD.

 

Yet I can watch reruns of the BCS on ESPN 3D. So much for Comcast carrying the most live sports in HD lol.

Re: I want Fox Soccer Channel in HD!

Well, yesterday's Man Utd vs Chelsea is the last Fox Soccer "In HD" broadcast that I will have to watch in SD - the Verizon FIOS engineer is here at my house, hooking me up! Yep, FIOS has FSC HD...

 

I'm not for a second saying that FSC HD is the ONLY reason I'm switching service after 11 years with Comcast and its predecessors, but it certainly tipped the balance. I was fielding one of those annoying calls you get from Verizon from time to time, but this time they had something worthwhile to offer. And, of course, I will save some money for a while with a sweet starter deal, though I'm in no doubt that FIOS will learn to annoy me just as much as Comcast.

 

I am sure that FSC HD on Comcast is coming, since it has already been launched in Philly. In fact, it will probably be in place in time for next season. But if they cannot be bothered to give a schedule to loyal, patient customers, well.... you know.

I live in Vancouver, WA and I read the Twitter that WA will be getting the FSC? I've already got all the other YAWN channels like Hallmark. FSC is the only one I don't.

 

Anyone know what channel number it'll be?

Re: FSC HD Fox Soccer Channel

I just got my bill online a moment ago. I got excited for a second when I saw the date 6/6/11 at the start of the news part of the bill....

 

Then got more excited when I saw the words "Comcast will preview...."

 

Then died inside when I saw it was another two lame shopping networks (ShopNBC and Jewerly). Exactly what we need MORE of on cable is shopping networks. Excuse me now folks I need to bang my head against an brickwall repeatedly at just how absurd it is that Comcast continues to find every excuse not to add Fox Soccer HD yet keeps adding worthless channels that NOBODY is watching.

Re: FSC HD Fox Soccer Channel

The sad part of watching FSC in SD is that they still have the 'HD' icon in the upper right of the screen just mocking me! So, it seems like Comcast gets the HD feed, but will only carry it on a SD channel (401 for me). So, is it that hard to add the HD version of the channel and just pipe the same feed through it?

Re: FSC HD Fox Soccer Channel

Nope. Just contacted Comcast Live Chat Support. Standard replies.

>>There is no specific date yet for the new channels.

>>Comcast is working on it.

>>Yes,. There are some areas that HD soccer was already receiving.

>>We are working widely on our channels especially Sports channel

>>The best way we can do here is to make a request regarding your sports channel. So that it will help for the sooner launching of SF Bay Area? 1.) Fox Soccer Channel HD 2.) Fox Soccer Plus

 

Then the agent added my request onto their system. I suggest you do the same. Hopefully the more requests they get, the higher the priority.

San Jose/BayArea:

 

Not sure if all of you have to pay for FSC..but I do ($6.95, part of the sports entertainment package).

I cancelled it today...a) because the season I watch is over, b) other free channels carry some of the games in HD (ie ESPN2, comcast sportsnet).

 

As I was doing so they agent said they would be adding new Channels near the end of summer, and he thought FSCHD was one.  I know, I know.......but just passing it on for those die-hard hopeful.

Re: FSC HD Fox Soccer Channel

It is a total joke that we don't have FSC or Goltv in HD when all the other major carriers (FIOS and the satellites) offer it and some cities like Philly have had it for months. Philly also gets other channels in HD like FEARNET that I don't even have available in SD, I don't understand why Comcast keeps adding horrible channels like the shopping, religious, and CSPAN in HD but I have to watch the sports package that I pay extra for in SD. Soccer in HD is so much better than in SD that it really should have been one of the first HD channels added but instead it is the last assuming we ever get it here in Maryland. Sometimes I wonder if Comcast really has any desire to keep my business. There is no way I'll put up with no HD for the soccer channels when the season restarts in August. After more than a decade with Comcast, it looks like I'll be moving to FIOS this summer because of this issue alone. Pathetic customer service from Comcast.

Any news for a HD feed for the Fox Soccer Channel? Has one been established that I don't know about.  Unfortunately I am still watching it in retro SD quality on a HD television.

 

Est. 1 billion fans of futbol (soccer) in the world and we have to pay an additional fee on top of our subscription for a gaming package to get such poor quality TV.

 

Edit: Nevermind, just read the update lower on the board. It looks like it if finally coming. When it will arrive for us soccer fans is now the big question. Hopefully sooner than later.

You can search and then request the channel via the Fox Soccer website:

Also, call comcast and have them make a formal request for the Channel in HD in your area.

want to pay less?  call comcast ask to be switched to a customer retention specialist and tell them what you want to pay and boom there you go.  Instant cable reduction, that is if you have any competition in your area

I'm near about heading for DirecTV.  Without any serious word as to the availability in a huge football market like ours, nevermind missing out on all the EPL, SerieA, La Liga matches in HD, it seems inevitable.

 

"You'll Never Walk Alone" unless waiting for FSC in HD on Comcast.   Reds!
