    Fox Sports 1

    Figured with the recent Mediacom vs. Directv that we should start a discussion about Fox Sports 1.

    The channel launches in 39 days and will be replacing the Speed channel.

    The reason I bring this up is that Fox Sports 1 will be broadcasting both the ISU-Iowa and ISU-Tulsa games, and it's possible a few more games make it to the channel. Anyone that is looking at getting new cable/satellite service or upgrading their service may want to make sure Fox Sports 1 is included in the package, to avoid furious channel surfing on game days.

    Here is a link to Fox Sports 1 main page. It has a FAQ section that talks about what kinds of programming the channel will offer.

    Re: Fox Sports 1

    From what I've gathered, isn't FS1 just replacing Speed? Speed is available in most packages. I'm guessing Fox will want this in as many homes as possible so they'll try to keep providers from moving it into the sports packs and leave it in the main packages, like ESPN. I have Speed right now without having a sports pack, Dish better not move it

    Re: Fox Sports 1

    I'm assuming it is going to be on channel 52-9 on Mediacom in Ames?

    Re: Fox Sports 1

    I currently get speed with my regular Mediacom package; better get FS1 without upgrading.

    My understanding that it will be Women's games only.

    As far as football, expect ISU to make a lot of FS1 appearances this year. If understand correctly, not all, but most of the FSN B12 games are moving to FS1.

    Re: Fox Sports 1

    Will I be able to get FOX Sports 1 on my TV?For many operators, FOX Sports 1 will launch in the same channel location now occupied by SPEED. We hope that all major cable, satellite and telephone video services will offer FOX Sports 1 at the time of its August launch, giving it wide distribution in over 90 million homes. Specific channel information will be posted at FOXSports.com closer to the launch date.

    I figured this was the case too which I am fine with because I don't think Cedar Rapids has FSN. Somebody can correct me if I'm wrong.

    Re: Fox Sports 1

    It Would Be Nice If Directv Moves It Closer To Espn Liked They Did With Nbc Sports. I Don't Go Up In The 600S unless Its A Football Saturday.

    Yes, you're correct. On Mediacom, FSN is not available under any package in Cedar Rapids. The only way to get the FSN games on Mediacom in CR is to get the sports pack and watch them in SD if they are simulcast on Fox College Sports.

    Yes. It'll be on the exact same channel.

    If you get Speed now, you'll get FS1.
    If you get Fuel now, you'll get FS2.
