    • Mel says:

      You already have it Speed CH 52 changed to Fox Sports 1 on the 17th.

      • Jannor says:

        Nope. Channel 52 now shows in the guide as being Foxsports 1, but its still showing ‘Speed Tv’. I’ve been calling Cablevision because I’m a huge UFC fan, but so far they don’t have the licensing to show Foxsports 1.

    I’m sure the cell phone companies will love this so people can go over their already price gouged data plans

    • Wtf says:

      So true, how much this is gonna cost us? Actually I don’t need it I can wait till I get home to put my feet up and watch tv

    • smh says:

      RETWEET!

  5. Y-Gurl says:

    If they had something worthwhile to watch on there less than basic packages that are sold at more than premium prices I might think about it, so now they want us to pay BCL,s assenine prices and layer data charges on the top…..oh sure Teryy & Co your lineups that good!

  6. I'm just sayin... says:

    Why doesn’t BCV just deliver what they promise and I pay for? Like the advertised speeds I don’t get? Count me out of this and possibly out of BCV entirely.

    • Time Shall Tell says:

      I am thinking the same myself really, the bad service companies are able to get away with here at such high rates is criminal. If you’re paying full price for a service then you should receive full service (a small drop out would be excusable but when it drops below 50%….. & contacting tech support hasn’t been any help).

      • Indepedent says:

        I have to agree with what is being said. The sad truth is that our service has gotten worse of the last couple years. I (A football fan) have been waiting for the season to kick off, and now I only get the chance to see the early game on ESPn, and they whatever game they choose for us around lunch time. I am not being rude, but Sportmax is not the answer nor the quality we deserve, as we pay top dollar for cable.

        IF any CableVision exec is reading this, please find a way to make your loyal customers happy. We have been paying faithfully for a number of years, and I feel we deserve better. All those years of free feeds you were getting, spend some of that damn money you saved over the years.

    Oh marvelous! More ways to watch nothing.

  8. Bermuda123 says:

    I would be delighted to take advantage of this if Cablevision were truly island wide. Please fix the Harrington Sound blackout section and you will get a bunch of new clients!

  9. Robert says:

    Lmao,how much will this cost,they are already asking $22 for sportsmax2. Cablevision, go to he double hockey sticks !!

  10. swing voter says:

    jitter, jitter, and more jitter. Latency is guaranteed ….. why pay for crappy service when you can get most cable channels online for free

  11. Nuffin but da Truth says:
