MotoAmerica Racing in HD - Comcast

Comcast customers, in case you didn't know, chances are you have access to 'TV Go' (part of Xfinity Stream), and my package includes FS2 in HD (FS2 through the HD cable box is in SD).

Here's how I access mine:

Sign in online > My Xfinity > More Shows > Live TV (dropdown) > TV Go Channels > FS2

Today's Superbike race is at 3:30.

Does that then add it to the guide or do you have to go into the app menu on your TV to access it after signing in on line?

Thanks for the heads up.

The sequence to access TV Go Channels does not add it to your HD cable box guide. The TV Go Channels Guide is similar to your channel lineup on your cable box but differs because it offers more channels.

Think of the TV Go Channels Guide as being an online web-based version of your HD cable box guide, with more channels.

Check out the additional screenshots in this post. The PAC-12 network, Starz & HBO all offer more channels through the TV Go Guide online than the HD cable box. There are probably more examples that I haven't looked for.

Today's Superbike race is on at 5:00.

So I can add it to my Roku?

Sorry for all the questions.

I'm recording in SD even if I forget to add TV Go.

I'm not sure how that would work with Roku.

For Roku, you probably need the Xfinity app (here). It's been in beta, I think, since 2017

Hmm I don't have the TV Go in the drop down menu for live tv, it just all channels and favorites. When I go to all channels it has TV Go channels but no FS2

If you're missing TV Go Channels from your dropdown list (see my options in the attachment), it might be worth a phone call to find out why you don't have that option.

If you don't have FS2 in SD on your cable box, that might explain why FS2 HD is missing from your All Channels lineup.
