Since this news dropped, I've literally scanned my channel guide every single day, sometimes multiple times a day, hoping to see Fuel pop up. I run a search for UFC hoping to spot the odd channel that isn't ppv, on demand, fox deportes, or FX. As an mma fan, it kills me when there's top tier promotion content available to some, but not all (and not me). I'm lucky that I have a FiOS house nearby that supports my junkie-like mentality, but I thought this was America! I shouldn't have to hide in the shadows like some common street thug, searching for the first grainy, choppy illegal stream that will pacify my needs. I shouldn't have to put on pants and drive to another county; only to sit next to my mother-in-law, explaining the sport to her the way you explain addition to a 4 year old. This IS America, and while I work my ass off living hand to mouth to feed a family of 4, some corporate toad sits in a chair that costs more than I make in a year. He decides that flipping the switch on another cable channel in a field of 1000 isn't a priority to his 3 week golf and hooker vacation and I, we, STARVE for the entertainment we so desperately need!

FRAT NOTES:
-I want FuelTV
-I don't have it
-I'm bitter and emotional about it Phone Post

We have Fuel on Comcast here in Houston, but you have to pay for the extra sports package to get it. I am guessing it will stay this way.

I'll never understand why a card like this is on Fuel where no one can see it. They will lose money on the live event and they won't even get any tv viewers.

Yeah I just did a search no fuel here and fox deportes is showing ufc reruns on Saturday. They're re showing the Mighty Mouse/Dodson card and then some kind of show with the Couture/Machida fight. Phone Post

Just switched to a different Comcast plan today. I got the HD premium package, which includes a sports package. I have Fuel on channel 166. I'm sure it will not be the same for everyone.

They might as well change the name to UFC network. All day was nothing but UFC programming, and I LOVE it.

Only problem, it's not in HD... Phone Post

It's so annoying to me that when I lived in the middle of nowhere in SouthWestern Virginia I had Fuel through Comcast. Now I'm living outside of DC and I don't. I now have access to pretty much anything that someone could want but no Fuel via Comcast... I don't want to switch to Fios but damn...

OP- are the people you work for aware of the emotional response to the news of the alleged roll out of your channel to Comcast customers? If so, is there any communication between entities about giving the people what they want?

We're adults and we understand how the politics of business will slow seemingly inane things to a stand still. However, ever since UFC announced the partnership with FOX there has been a swell of enthusiasm, disappointment, and frustration from people who don't have this channel. This card is special; loaded with fan favorites and legends. Many of us in this thread have expressed that we'd willingly pay a ppv price for it.

I think a lot of us are waiting for Santa Claus to save the day here. What can we expect? Phone Post
