Over the past few months, Comcast Cable has been phasing out Fox Sports World on their digital cable systems. This means that live soccer, rugby and Australian rules football may not be seen if Comcast Cable is the primary cable system in a certain area.
The phasing out of Fox Sports World has begun with cable systems in Pennsylvania and Maryland. Many of these cable systems were not owned by Comcast before the year 2000, and they freely presented fox sports world on digital cable. Around 2000, Comcast began taking over many of the cable systems. Home Team Sports in Maryland became Comcast Sportsnet. Newly comcast owned stations in Pennsylvania are now required to show the Comcast original television network, CN8.
Around September of this year, the website www.soccertv.com had reported that Comcast had begun taking Fox Sports World off of their systems. The reason Comcast owns the Outdoor Life Network and feels it would be too much competition to have Fox Sports World on their systems.
What it all comes down to is not only the average Comcast Digital Cable subscriber is getting the shaft, but also the soccer fan, and the rugby fan, and fans of other sports carried on Fox Sports World. DON\'T LET THIS HAPPEN. Sign the petition now and let your voice be heard.
(Note: It has been reported that Comcast has now taken over AT&T Broadband. This means Comcast will also have control of their digital cable systems.)
