Fox Sports wants to play ESPN's game of "more money, more money." Come August 17th, Fox is rebranding Speed (652/1652) to Fox Sports 1. They are also asking for more money. Lots more. Providers pay 23 cents per subscriber for Speed but they want 80 cents per for FS1, now and having it escalate to $1.50. They made a deal with Comcast but others are balking.

At least those stupid "The 10" shows will be gone and as well as some of those other stupid series they been running.
Fox has been promoting this like it the next best thing to sliced bread, ESPN's probably been laughing their heads over this overblown self-important Fox Sports 1.

I Call It Like I See It, Simply a U-verse user, nothing more
I don't know what happen to my posts the other day but I posted aomething like this:
ESPN is taking it seriously the have to, They hired back Keith Olberman (who I really don't like):
Plus Sportscenter ratings have been doing awful, actually the whole TV station itself hasn't been doing too well:
It looks like we will see a revamped of Sportscenter (It really needs one):

To those people talking about rate increases, nothing on U-verse has gone up in price.
So why are we complaining?
No one is complaining (yet). If we see a larger than normal price bump, in February 2014, one could make a huge point that FS1 had lots to do with it. There are also non-sports fans who come onto this forum and complain about Hallmark and such and then mention "all those sports channels that I don't watch."

I knew there was going to be a FOX Sports 2.
FOX Sports 2 will replace FUEL TV as well:
"FUEL TV WEBSITE CONFIRMS FOX SPORTS 2 REBRAND
But the clearest sign of all of Fuel's rebranding as Fox Sports 2 actually comes on the Fuel TV website. There we finally find confirmation that the channel will become Fox Sports 2 on August 17th, the day Fox Sports 1 also launches:"

Wonder if FS 2 will have its price jacked up as much.
Of course, that also means an auto-related channel now is "just another sports channel."

I was glad to hear that Fox Sports 1 was replacing Speed because UVerse has Speed in HD. But, Fox Sports 2 is replacing Fuel sucks becuase there is no HD version of that channel. I always hated watching the UFC Prelims on Fuel on UVerse becuase it was SD. Hopefully this will give them a reason to add the HD channel of it.
