Fox News channel is ONLY channel on my Xfinity TV having issues with pixelating and poor sound quality. This has been happening the past few weeks. Is this intentional?

My fox news channel is pixelation , the sound is also off and on along with the picture. I'm thinking this is deliberate because all the other channels are ok. I am prepared to switch to dish if it doesn't clear up.

Comcast silencing Fox News

I too am experiencing this issue and it is happening almost daily. I think it is deliberate and I am not a consperacy tyoe of person but it ONLY happens with Fox news. All other channels are fine. Seems pretty starnge to me and upsetting knowing now I am not the only one experiencing this issue.

It’s the same problem with the DirectTV.

I had the problem where Fox News productions were silent but the ads were fine, no display issues. I contacted Xfinity hurt line, when I finally got someone all I got was silence, literally no chat responses for over 12 minutes so I disconnected.

I stumbled on the solution, for me at least. "Video Description" was enabled, I guess at the channel level. I used the down on the pad then far left. There is a D)) (video description), SAP is to the right of it. I actually had to go to the D)) and turned Video Description Off. Poof the sound is working for me.

Today, 7/14/20, during Fox News coverage of President Trump's press conference, it was so glitchy and pixilated with poor sound quality, I tried other channels. All other channels were crystal clear. The only way to watch his press conference at that moment was through CNN. Seems fishy to me. This is through Xfinity/
comcast. This would be a serious issue if Xfinity is choosing what the public can and can't see based on political leanings.

I suspect that the poster thinks this is some sort of "DirecTV" (DTV) forum. It is not. We are not DirecTV, we are not affiliated with DirecTV. Complaints regarding DirecTV should be directed to DirecTV http://www.directv.com/DTVAPP/global/contentPageNR.jsp?assetId=P1700006
He's talking about Comcast Cable, not Direct TV satellite dish. I have comcast and I have the same problem with the pixelating the last couple weeks and it wouldn't surprise me if it's deliberate, by some ahole who works there or something.

Same problem with Spectrum Cable

Odds are you live in a right-wing area, with many Fox viewers. The feed may not be able to support the demand.

Is it still pixilated and sketchy now... in a lower demand time frame?

Everyone who has this problem should call FOX or better yet, the FCC. We've had this same problem, only with FOX, the past year or more. We call Comcast, get the run-around, check this, check that, we'll send a signal. An hour later everything is fine, and then a month or so later, it happens again. The reason I am on this site today is because it's happening again and the debate is tonight. Now I have to spend an hour of my day dealing with Comcast. OK, I'll do that, then I'm calling the FCC. Better yet, I'll call them first. Hopefully, they have not been politicized.
