Fox Soccer Channel in HD Coming Soon to AT&T U-verse

Fox Soccer Channel in HD will be coming soon to AT&T U-verse.

U-verse’s programming guide shows that channel 1654 will be the home of Fox Soccer Channel in HD (soon to be rebranded as FOX Soccer HD). With the 2011-12 Premier League season kicking off on August 13, the hope is that Fox Soccer Channel in HD (FSCHD) will launch before the new season begins.

Both DISH Network and DirecTV offer FSCHD to customers in the United States as well as a select number of cable TV providers. With AT&T U-verse adding FSCHD in the coming days or weeks, this puts more pressure on Comcast to roll FSCHD out to the different regions around the United States. As of press time, there’s no sign that Comcast will add the channel anytime soon to the regions that currently don’t have it. If you’re upset that Comcast doesn’t provide FSCHD, you can do something about it by following the instructions here and here.

Meanwhile for AT&T U-verse customers, the wait is almost over. At least U-verse listens to its customers and follows through on their requests.

Thanks to EPL Talk readers Dustin House and Kelly H for the news tips.
