Fox does not offer VOD to cable or satellite.  You can watch a number of their shows online via affiliate websites, fox.com or hulu.com

TCN - The Comcast Network (CN8 Phila.)

 

Hello.

 

The Philadelphia Flyers announced their TV schedule today and have several games listed on TCN - The Comcast Network (CN8 when I was on Comcast). This is not CSN - Comcast Sports Net Philadelphia.

 

Will this channel be available when Flyers games are on this channel?

 

Thank you in advance.

Yep....Comcast just did that because they want those Flyers fans who don't have Comcast to have a hard time. I can use other words but this is a public message board.

 

I'm sure Comcast charges any telco carrier alot to even try and get this channel.

 

I guess we as Flyers fans will have to either find a local bar or find it somewhere on the Net to see these games.

 

I does bite that the first two games we as Fios customers will NOT be able to see them.

 

I called Verizon today and they have no idea about TCN will be carried if at all on Fios.

 

I'm looking to find other ways to see these two games and the otrher 8 during the season.

 

 

I'm sure Comcast will do the same thing for the Sixers once they start up again and the Phillies next season thats the kind of company Comcast is.

Well thats not good news.

 

I remember when I had Comcast last season and they showed games on CN8 (TCN) it was non HD and the reception was horrible. Even worse then SD!

 

Well I hope somehow Verizon can step up to the plate for us Philadelphia Flyers fans and show the 10 games.

Two of the last 3 games of the season are on TCN so I sure hope those games are not needed to clinch a playoff spot or division.

Yep last season it was 4 or 5 games if I remember right I watched them over the Net. No more CW games so Comcast will use that as an excuse to why they added to more games to the TCN channel this season.

 

 

I heard TCN was a very poor picture ....but someone said Comcast had it on a special channel for HD as well. I don't know for sure as I was with Comcast then just going by what I heard on message boards.

 

 

Yes hopefully Verizon will find a way to bring us these games.........

Wonder if these 10 TCN games can be shown on NHL network for local Phila crew? Or does that fall into the blackout rule?

It would be blacked out for those of you in the Flyers home region. It looks like taking away the CW games is Comcast's way of keeping turf since they know Verizon will take away a huge chunk of subscribers. Will the myPhl Philles games be next to go to the Comcast Network?

 

Where I live, CSN has a CSN+ channel which is distributed a lot more. They only put one Caps game on The Comcast Network, because this game is after MASN2 bumps CSN+ on cable systems in the spring. Fortunately, there is competition with regional sports in my region, which Comcast HATES and had tried to destroy MASN for its first two years.

 

This leads me to a different rant- since the cable subscriber cap was struck down, Comcast is petitioning the FCC and courts, trying to be able to keep its own networks to themselves. They want to limit distribution of sports networks like they do in Philadelphia (where they don't sell CSN to satellite), and not be forced to sell it to other providers, like Verizon.

I would not hold your breath concerning CN8/TCN ever being available on FiOS. It is Comcast’s own proprietary channel and they aren't going to let anyone else carry it.  It's not a matter of Verizon deciding or not to carry the channel, Comcast won't offer it.

Where are the Greek international channels?

Both major satellite providers have them and Verizon does not.

You are losing tons of customers as a result.
