Fox Sports 1 Channel and Package Requirements


I just saw today that Directv and Fox have come to an agreement on the new Fox Sports 1 channel.  Can anyone tell me what channel that will be on Directv and what package is required to get Fox Sports 1?

Thanks,

Rich

Why doesn't the guide reflect the Fox Sports 1 programming??  For example, I want to record MotoGP that is on at 11:00 AM Sunday and the guide is not even close to having the correct information.

Patience:  The Guide is still showing the MAVTV lineup, not Fox Sports 1

At 8:36 AM the channel has still not switched, apparently.  I am not at home so I recorded the show on 219 that was listed (It was something I wanted to watch).  I watched it back just now on GenieGo (at least that worked!!!) and I recorded the listed show from MAVTV, not Fox Sports 1.   I guess more patience is required.  No point in trying anything else until DTV gets this right.

I had 4 DVRS that made the switch and one that didn't, I had to do a reset for 219 to show up in CIG.

So.....here it is Sunday night, and the switch happened at 6:00 AM Saturday.  I am away from home so I can't physically see if channel 219 comes on, or what is there.  The Directv website guide that we can use to program the DVR shows NO programming available so the DVR can't be programmed to see anything on Fox Sports.  I REALLY wanted to record MotoGP today that was on from 11:00 -3:00 since I was physically at the speedway and I would like see the action we missed.  Not to be.  I kept checking the Directv app on my phone, but it said the same thing.  My guess is the online guide on the Genie shows nothing also, but I just don't know.   Oh well, I guess they will eventually get it rignt, now that I missed what I really wanted to record.

Is your guide showing the correct information?  All I can see is what they have on their website and is says no information available.  We will be home tomorrow and then I will know what the Genie says.

Home now and all is well.  The online Guide was fixed at 7:00 AM when I checked from daughter's house.  I was able to set recordings for the races I missed and the Guide on the Genie was correct when we returned home.  Issue solved.  Thanks for your help.

You're welcome.  When the channel lineup changes it always takes some time for the guide to catch up.  If you feel your question was answered correctly would you check the answered box?
