Looks like Spain's La Liga soccer will only be shown on beIN SPORTS USA channels. This past season's games were on GOLTV and ESPN Desportes.
Is there any possibility that the new beIN SPORTS channels will be viewable on Comcast???? PLEASE???

Not just Spain...French and Italian socccer will be on beIN as well.
Took so long to get Fox Soccer in HD...can't imagine how long it'll take to get these channels at all, especially since they're owned by Al Jazeera

Yes, GolTV will be pretty much an empty shell next season, no good reason to keep it. Are you listening Comcast?!?
Time to go with Bein Sports 1 AND 2. I suspect Bein Sports 2 will show up in the Spanish package way before the English version. I would like both, but we have to press Comcast, these people don't move on their own...

I called Comcast in late May, as soon as the word got out that BEiN won the rights to La Liga. This is really important to me and the only reason I purchased the Sports Package from Comcast. I heard back from them and my contact said he would run my request up the corporate chain. The question becomes why have GOLTV if they don't have La Liga and the Bundesliga? Swap it out for BEin. If not, I will have to switch to a carrier who carries the La Liga games.

Not only has GolTV lost those two, they also lost the Europa League. In other words it officially has nothing worth watching. If Comcast had any actual concern for their customers, they would replace GotTV with Bein Sports 1 & 2.
The only reason I got the Latino package was to watch La Liga, if Comcast doesn't at least bring Bein Sports 2 to the Spanish listing, then I'll have to do business with someone else. I don't know if Comcast understand that this "little issue" kind of matters....

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.

go to comcast.com feedback on the bottom of this page and request it there nothing posted here will reach inside comcast. I been wanting them to add VH1 soul back and I requested til I was blue in the face and nothing comcast only adds what they want to add.
08-11-2012 07:38 PM
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.

We need to offer BeINSport in HD to your Connecticut customers. Just put a soccer package including FSC and FSC Plus in HD, NBCSports in HD and GolTV in HD and we will buy it. No delays
08-12-2012 04:04 PM
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.
08-13-2012 03:22 PM
Bein Sports is owned by Al Jazeera. They basically have unlimited money. Which means that Fox chan say good bye to both the premier league and champions league from 2013. End of the story. That's why Comcast should add those channels. FSC and GolTV will become (or already are) useless.
08-13-2012 04:25 PM
To all that have posted here the fact is that Comcast doesn't take channel requests from the forums.
Check the link below for ways to request channels.
08-15-2012 01:17 PM
Bein Sports USA in HD and in English on Direct TV today
Keep up the great work Comcast!!!!
08-15-2012 01:36 PM
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
08-15-2012 01:53 PM
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.
08-15-2012 03:22 PM
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..
08-15-2012 08:08 PM
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.
