Comcast and Fox Soccer finally agree to HD coverage

In the best news for American soccer fans in nearly a year, Comcast will finally carry the Fox Soccer Channel in high definition.

By Zac Lee Rigg

May 27, 2011 11:43:00 AM

Finally, the agony can end. The pain, the wet hot tears, the fuzzy slippers thrown at the TV in anguish - all of that can finally be erased. Just take a big sigh and let it all out.

Buried at the bottom of a New York Times article about Fox Soccer's coverage of the Champions League final was a note containing the biggest news for American soccer fans since Landon Donovan poked the ball into the back of the Algerian net: Comcast has finally - after years of strenuous eye-squinting and blurry blobs - agreed to carry the Fox Soccer Channel in high definition.

Comcast has the largest market share of any multichannel video programming distributor in America, reaching nearly 23 million subscribers as of Dec. 2010, according to the National Cable & Telecommunications Association. That's a good 3 million more than DirecTV and almost double Time Warner's 12 million.

For many apartment buildings across the country, Comcast is the only option available. And, in some cases, such as Ann Arbor, Mich., Comcast holds a monopoly in towns in return for fees and services to the local government (in Ann Arbor's case, funding four local, public access and government channels).

All of that is fine. Somebody's got to be the biggest, and complaints about every provider's service are myriad. But then Fox Soccer began offering HD in Jan. 2010. Everyone else eventually came around and carried it by April. Except, of course, Comcast.

Things got especially gruesome when Fox Soccer stopped sending out a signal cropped for standard definition, meaning several good inches were lopped off each side if one caught a game via Comcast. Not only were viewers subjected to mushy, blurry picture which makes it difficult to identify players unless a closeup shot is shown, but now they also missed good swathes of action when the player with the ball dipped out of the provided dimensions into the margins or the camera shot didn't swing far enough to include the goal.

Avoiding the Fox Soccer Channel was, in most cases, the best option. ESPN carried the U.S. national team games and some of the more high-profile matches in MLS, the EPL, and La Liga. GolTV took care of the rest of La Liga, the Bundesliga and South American ball. The Spanish-language channels were all over the Mexican league. Even ESPN3.com, with a decent internet connection or through the Xbox, provided better picture than FSC, and that covered Serie A and Portugal, among others.

But the one killer was the Champions League. Usually one CL game a matchday broadcast on a Fox affiliate in HD, but for the rest, viewers were subjected to numbingly painful standard definition.

I am not a fan of the Dish Network or DirecTV, but it is frustrating to not be able to watch games in HD, James Quijano, a Morientes fan who lives in the Bay Area, told Goal.com. I have a 50-inch plasma TV and seeing the Champions League on Fox Soccer Channel sucks. I used to watch it on ESPN HD and the change to Fox Soccer has been nothing short of a let down.

Until now.

Now, just about anyone who wants to watch soccer in HD can. Now, the birds are chirping. Now, flowers are blooming and a gorgeous rainbow straddles from Alaska to Florida. Now, we know what kind of change Obama was really talking about, and all can agree that he has delivered.

Indeed, it's a spectacular time to be a soccer fan in America. As opposed to a few decades ago, when kids could only catch Soccer Made In Germany, a review show on PBS, nearly every major league is readily available live. Univision is set to launch a 24-hour sports channel in HD, which will lean heavily on soccer programming, with the stated goal of challenging Fox Soccer and ESPN Deportes.

So sit back. Flick on the tube. And take in the beautiful game in glorious high definition on your channel of choice. One day you'll laugh as you try to explain to your children the horrors of standard definition. But for now you're just overcome with emotion at the thought of Rooney vs. Messi in crystal clear picture.

...Fox had reached an agreement with Comcast, the nation's largest cable provider, to launch FSC in HD on select systems. Comcast had been the last cable holdout. The deal means that FSC is now available in HD on all major cable and satellite systems.

My bill went up $7 a month because they said I added a Digital Preferred outlet last month. I made no changes last month. I do have multiple "outlets" (in that I have multiple DVRs, but only 2 TVs), but I've had them for a long time now.

I convinced Comcast to remove this charge.

I'm having an issue that I don't know if it has anything to do with my Comcast box but hopefully someone can help me. I have Comcast service with an HD DVR (Motorola DCX3400) and a Vizio LCD TV (E370VA). They are connected via HDMI. Every once in a while, the sound on the TV will start to break up and then the TV will reboot itself. Is this a Comcast issue or a Vizio issue?

Who here has already gone through the digital conversion with Comcast? I got my letter last week and it looks like I'm **** out of luck for my 8 TV's. Going to have to either pay $8.50 a month for each TV in order to keep watching most all of the same channels I've been watching, or pay $2.50 a month for a crappy "digital adapter" to keep watching those channels in glorious SD.

What have others done?

Two DTAs are free. Depending on your service level, what you are paying now might entitle you to one regular non-DVR box at no additional charge. I already had one HD DVR when my local Comcast went digital, but I had two DVD recorders, and used their analog tuners to record some things, like Turner Classic Movies, and CNN. Well, I got one free DTA, and pay for a second DVR, directly connected to one of my DVDRs. I have learned how to program the DVR, in a way that will make the channel I want to record on my DVDR come on the tuner that is outputted. But, yeah, it sucks, and I don't like adding to my ever-increasing cable bill.

Try calling Comcast and asking for the Retention division, say you are tempted to jump to FIOS because of the increase, they might help>

What good is more HD when I can't watch it on my HD TV's? I don't think it's right to have to pay $8.50 more per TV to be able to keep watching the same channels I've been watching. I've got one HD-DVR in my family room and I don't like the idea of sticking more STB's or more DA's at each TV location in the house. I read on their website where if you want to watch HD locals, along with the Digital Adapters, they're recommending you put a splitter on the line and run it through an A/B switch.

klh007, I'm going to try your advice and try to speak with the retention department. For the past 6 months they've been screwing me with my billing to begin with, where they offered me 12 months of a reduced rate for signing up for the premium internet speeds, but then only gave me the reduced rate for 3 months.

I'm also going to have to price out Direct and Dish I guess.

Good idea -- because -- lord knows, DirecTv and Dish aren't going to charge you for each individual outlet...

;-)

I am still hoping Comcast will eventually deploy HD DTAs...

They do, but from what I've gathered with Direct TV, it's not going to cost me as much. And HD DTA's would be fine, but I wager my market wouldn't get them for a while.

Even better idea though. Clear QAM Expanded Basic, and if a user wants Limited Basic then let Comcast use some form of signal trap to restrict content. Then everything beyond Expanded Basic would require an STB or DTA. Basically what we've got now.

The one nice thing about cable use-to-be you could plug the coax right into TV and you were set for your programming (unless you wanted the HBO's of the world). Going away from that concept seems to me to be double dipping.

Comcast didn't want to keep supporting traps, but your idea was floated around here a lot and made sense as a competitive advantage over other providers that require boxes for all TVs. Unfortunately they chose to go the same route as the others, and it does suck.

They have stated that they are working on providing HD DTAs, which presumably would be a lot cheaper to rent than the full HD STB (which has a program guide, VOD, etc.). The HD DTA would hopefully get all the channels that the regular SD DTAs get (expanded basic + a few more), in HD of course. Don't see why your market would not get them, the SD DTAs are everywhere.

I wish Comcast would do that here in the SF bay area. This market is one of the most crowded in the nation and all those channels chew up a lot bandwidth that could be used far more efficiently.

Jim,

It is, but there is no firm time line for it to happen here. If I find out I'll let you know.

You're probably right but I've heard it from a couple of sources but it is coming.

I'm more interested in this ( the new guide and where Comcast is going ). Here's the link to their blog but watch the YouTube video, it's quite interesting, I only nodded off once

Yeah, 1Gbp/s, but at what price, doesn't Comcast charge like $150-$200 for their 100Mbp/s HSI? Plus, there's those ridiculous caps to contend with. In our area, better to hope for Sonic and their 1Gbp/s fiber at $70 per month(uncapped BTW), I might even move to Sebastopol just to have it sooner.
