Fox Sports 1

Any idea if Uverse will be offering this channel? Read it is replacing Speed.  As fellow sports fans are aware ATT lags behind other companies offering sports programming but this looks to be a huge competitor to ESPN. Hope they add this .

Since it's just a re-branding of Speed, which is already carried, it shouldn't effect it should it?

You would think that. But with the Al Jazeera buying Current situation, some providers are dropping the channel even though contracts are in place.

That's a completely different situation, this is a Fox channel they are rebranding so it should not effect the current contracts.

If a change in ownership occurs, the carriage agreement can be voided.

This would not be a change in ownership it's just Fox rebranding Speed channel to FoxSports 1.

OP: This should be a seamless transition.   Fox owns Speed and obviously Fox Sports 1 (FS1).

 

There are a couple of things that I do not like: 1) There will be sports, other than Motorsports shown on FS1 and 2) starting in 2015, some cup races will be moved off Fox Network and onto FS1 - meaning a further erosion of Cup races from "basic" TV.

 

There may be an upside, FS1 shouldn't have to depend on what I call "filler shows" such as Pinks, Wrecked, Chop, Cut Rebuild and so on, during the off season.  I will be sad to see Speed go but it has alreday had serious changes since 1996.

I remember missing races before when I didn't have TNN.  If I didn't have cable to watch NASCAR I'd be upset, but since I have all the channels needed, not too worried.  As for Speed network, I typically only watched Raceday is nothing else was on before the race, usually I'm catching up on recorded shows.

Hi,

Just wanted to let you know that AT&T U-verse is now offering Fox Sports 1 on U-verse packages above U-200. I spoke with U-verse rep and was told that they added the channel 8/17/13. To find out the channel number check the Fox Sports 1 webpage :
http://msn.foxsports.com/foxsports1

 

Click on "Find it now on your TV" link/icon to find the channel number for U-Verse. After entering my zip code this is the channel number i get but it may be different based on different zip code.

 

Tune in to FOX Sports 1 on AT&T U-verse channel 652 / 1652 (hd)! And watch FOX Sports 2 on channel 651!

 

Hope this helps!

Loos like from the Guide, that Fox Sports 2 is mainly showing a bunch of soccer matches, UFC and a little bit of NASCAR's smaller divisions.  Wonder if there is any plan to make this channel available in HD as well??

Is this channel even available in HD anywhere?  I have seen Comcast and Time Warner Cable customers mention that they get FS2 in SD only.

 

I can't even find any Fox-based mention of Fox Sports 2 - the main Fox press release site only mentions FS1, and even www.foxsports2.com points to the Fox Sports 1 website.  Since nobody made a big deal about FS2, I wouldn't be surprised if it had a "soft" opening, and they're waiting a while before the "official grand opening", at which time they'll probably roll out an HD signal.

It will be interesting to see how many Major League Baseball games Fox Sports 1 will provide next season on a weekly basis. Between Fox Sports 1, the MLB Network, ESPN (evenings and Sunday night),  WGN ( for those outside the Chicago market), the Sunday TBS Game of the Week, and the Fox Saturday game of the week, there will be a lot of out-of-market baseball available next season.

From the linke below:

 

If the app does offer live streaming, then it might end up being one of the hardest working apps on your phone. Starting next year, there will be 26 Saturdays with regular season baseball being broadcast, along with playoff games. And a live look-in show (similar to Red Zone) will be shown. There will also be College Football, NASCAR starting in 2015, soccer and more. Meanwhile,Variety pointed out on Thursday that the WatchESPN app for the Apple iPad has added a toolbar with stats, scores and on-demand clips.

Now the question is will those 26 Saturday games during the regular season be an addition to the already existing  Saturday Fox Game of the Week or will they replace the already existing Saturday Fox Game of the Week?

 

Hopefully, it will be an evening addition to the existing Saturday day game (once in a while the game of the week is at night).

I was under the impression that Fox's Saturday games in July and August were always night games, as Fox wanted to air them in prime time.

My guess is, whether or not Fox keeps its "game of the week" depends on what Fox thinks will get higher ratings - baseball, or reruns.

Also, I am under the impression that whatever League Championship Series Fox airs next year will be on FS1, so it doesn't mess up Fox's normal broadcast schedule.  (The World Series will remain on the main Fox netwrork.)
