Fuel TV asks for fans patience as they work for wider availability

Quote:
During last week's UFC on Fuel event, Cagereaders vented their frustration about the lack of availability of Fuel across the country and how they are missing out on fights, pre and post-fight shows and news magazine shows. One reader said he hasn't missed a single UFC event in six years until the UFC started showing fights on Fuel, a station he can't get on Comcast, the nation's largest cable provider.
Readers also said that they have, on several occasions, called their cable provider to ask for Fuel. However, they have no idea if it's doing any good. Since the UFC started working with Fuel TV in January, there has been little word on if Fuel will be carried more widely any time soon.
Though Fuel won't say when, they did respond to Cagewriter's questions with this statement:

Everyone at FUEL TV wants exactly what UFC fans want — to make our network available to every UFC fan possible. We appreciate their patience and have a team working diligently with distributors to make the network more widely available as quickly as possible. In the meantime, we encourage UFC fans to call their TV provider and request that FUEL TV be added to their network lineup. Because, let's face it, watching UFC on FUEL TV is clearly a much better viewing experience than having to stream the fights online. To get FUEL TV, go to www.fuel.tv/getfueltv, or call 877-4 FUEL-TV.

The problem with patience is that it's rarely infinite in its supply. UFC fans who don't have Fuel missed out on Alexander Gustafsson, an exciting light heavyweight prospect. They may have patiently missed out on seeing his big win over Thiago Silva. How will fans react to missing the next breakout performance? Will they patiently wait until Fuel becomes widely available, or will they fail to care when it does?

The switch to Fuel was F'N retarded!!!! You either have to pay a crap load more just to get that 1 channel or your provider doesn't carry it

I have dish network and I get Fuel TV. I love that channel. They should re-name it the UFC network because that is what they mostly show.

The UFC reloaded programs are awesome and they have been showing new best of PRIDE FC shows.

Awesome.

I recently moved and had to drop DirecTV for comcast cable, never realized how much I would miss Fuel TV. I did call comcast, they gave me a 'we can't do anything for you' comment.

You cant get a Dish where you moved? Ive had mine for 6 years and I will never go back to cable.

If I had to move and could not get a dish it would depress me.

Dish does me right. I agree with Askren, it's basically the UFC channel now, it's awesome. The UFC reloaded is way better than UFC unleashes, since you get the entire ppv of recent cards for free.

I recently cancelled a planned switch to Comcast when I found out I'd be losing Fuel. I really think Fuel TV has done a great job of rising to the occasion by featuring so much UFC broadcasting. Ole SPIKE TV sure messed up when they lost the UFC contract. I don't even watch that silly channel anymore. Fuel is doing it right. I think over time they'll be carried more widely. But it does suck that you need to get a whole package of channels you don't want just to get Fuel TV.

Awesome.
I have Dish as well, and I don't think I will ever go back to cable. When I bought my house a few years ago it was really the only choice I had, and I thought I was going to hate it. I have been really happy, in the last year Cox cable has but in fiber and I have that option now, but I think I am sticking with Dish.

I just wish they would get the HD version of Fuel.
