Fox Soccer Channel HD On Comcast: Help Speed Up The Rollout

The New York Times reported last week that Fox Soccer Channel and Comcast had reached a deal to carry Fox Soccer Channel HD on select systems. I received several e-mails and tweets from readers asking why I hadn’t reported the news. I was excited by the announcement, but a little dubious. I wanted to find out the facts in order to better inform the readers of EPL Talk. After all, New York Times reporter Jack Bell’s sentence that “The deal means that FSC is now available in HD on all major cable and satellite systems” was a tad misleading. Yes, Fox Soccer Channel HD is on some Comcast systems, but for the vast majority of Comcast customers nationwide who still don’t have Fox Soccer Channel HD, the news was a tease.

I contacted Fox Soccer Channel last week to find out more information. According to Fox, Comcast has launched Fox Soccer Channel HD in Albuquerque, Philadelphia and Seattle. More regional markets will be added in the future but it’ll be at the discretion of Comcast. “At this time, specific dates are not available but Comcast will inform its customers when the channel will be offered in their market,” said a Fox Soccer Channel representative.

So while the news is encouraging for Comcast customers who don’t have Fox Soccer Channel HD, the hard work is still yet to be done. If you have Comcast and you want Fox Soccer Channel HD, contact your local Comcast office and tell them. Tell them that Comcast customers in Albuquerque, Philadelphia and Seattle have it, so why can’t you? Let them know that their competitors DirecTV and Dish Network have it, and that it’s unacceptable that Comcast still doesn’t carry it. The only way to speed up Fox Soccer Channel HD being added to your Comcast programming is to get you and your friends to make them know.
