Comcast has confirmed FS1 for all of their customers!

@ComcastMelissa
@Entoosee If you currently get Speed channel, you'll get FS1.

Comcast finally pulls through!

Went back to dish just for fuel, and free HD. Then I find out that FS1 is gonna replace Speed.

Then I find out, Speed channel is part of the sports package, which is an additional 15 bucks.

Fuck you Dish/UFC/FOX.

I already had Comcast, and I can't switch again you D bags.

Seriously? That's awesome. Been having to watch Fox Deportes to see Fuel fights. Now I can finally watch them in english! I wonder if it just cuts over for everyone on August 17th? That seems to be what they're saying.

Didn't Comcast already carry Speed (the channel that is being converted to Fox Sports 1)? So they're basically saying they're guaranteeing a channel that you already have.

There was some dispute about Fox wanting more money and the Cable companies threatening to not carry the channel

You'd think it would just be that simple, but in changing the station they used it as a chance to renegotiate the carrage deal (fees per subscriber). These deals often get finished just days before the official launch.

In this case distributors (dish/comcast/directv/etc) were paying about .23 cents per customer for speed, and FS1 is being offered at .80 cents, with increases to $1.50. That's why it was unsure if comcast users would get FS1.
