    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Matt's College Sports Media Blog

    * The college basketball breakdown for FOX Sports 1 seems to look like this for the regular season:


    • Big East: 100+ men's basketball games & an unknown number of women's basketball games
    • Conference USA: ~10 men's games & ~5 women's games
    • Pac-12: 22 men's games
    • Big 12: Presumably some of their 31 women's basketball games will end up here

    In the initial release announcing FOX Sports 1, Monday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday were the four days where college basketball would be scheduled. Based on scheduling rotations

    • Monday: Big East men
    • Thursday: C-USA and/or Pac-12 (C-USA has switched to a Thursday/Saturday scheduling rotation)
    • Saturday: All properties
    • Sunday: All properties except C-USA men

    Beginning next year, most of the Fox Saturday MLB game of the week telecasts will move to FS1 as well.

    Re: Fox Sports 1

    It's not a given that Fox Sports 1 will be on your TV on Aug. 17.

    DirecTV has taken a hardline approach with new sports networks (not having Pac 12 Network, Comcast Sports Houston, etc.), if you have DirecTV, this could get ugly. I wouldn't even know if Mediacom is having talks regarding the new channel and your average CSR probably wouldn't have a clue.

    Like the reporter who wrote the article, I too thought it would be in 90 million homes on when the switch happens.

    FS1 carriage talks sticky a month out - SportsBusiness Daily | SportsBusiness Journal | SportsBusiness Daily Global

    A month before launching its much publicized all-sports network, Fox has yet to cut carriage deals with three of the country’s four biggest distributors, raising the possibility that its August launch of Fox Sports 1 will fall short of the 90 million homes the channel is expected to have.

    DirecTV, Dish Network and Time Warner Cable — representing more than 46 million subscribers — still are negotiating to carry FS1 on Aug. 17, which is when Fox will turn its motorsports channel, Speed, into a multisport network.

    The fact that so many deals are open a month before a network launch is not unusual in the cable industry. Typically, carriage deals like FS1’s get finalized in the days leading up to or just after a channel’s launch.

    Though talks have been described as amicable for the most part, news that some big deals aren’t done runs counter to the widespread belief in the sports industry that FS1 will flip a switch next month and launch to 90 million homes. While neither Fox nor distributors would comment about the state of talks, ticklish carriage negotiations and a new FS1 rate fee are slowing the process.

    Really hope DirecTV gets this taken care of before September 26. Although worst-case I just go somewhere else to watch ISU-Tulsa.

    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

    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.

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

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