    * 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

    Which Carriers are on board then...I'm assuming just Comcast (if they are talking the "Big 4"). Surprising since Comcast and Fox have not been friendly to each other when it comes to sports. Maybe Fox1 had to lock up the most questionable one before they went to the others.

    Re: Fox Sports 1

    FYI, still no deal in place between FS1 and Dish or Directv

    FOX Sports 1 still without a deal with DirecTV, Dish, Time Warner - Mountain West Connection

    I wouldn't be surprised if Directv moved FS1 to their "XTRA" tier - that's the minimum package you need to have access to NBC Sports, WGN, and CBS sports.

    This is the reason the cheapest place I can get NBC Sports and Premier League coverage for next year is still Mediacom, they bury these sports channels in the upper tiers.

    All major providers, including Mediacom, have struck deals for Fox Sports 1. On DirecTV, come Saturday, Fox Sports 1 will be on channel 219.

    Re: Fox Sports 1

    When you watch KC Royals games on Fox Sports Midwest, you get bombarded by Fox Sports 1 commercials. Nice little Iowa State football cameo shot with Jeremy Reeves.

    Regis Philbin will be hosting a sports show on FS1, saw him interviewed on the Daily Show.

    I guess their intent is to compete nationally with ESPN.

    This is really good news. I was starting to get worried that we'd miss some games.

    I saw that commercial every time I watched TV when I was in Kansas City three weekends ago.

    I've noticed that too down here. It's sweet! People watching the Royals games down here in the Bars have talked about that ISU cameo as well. Good pub for us!

    It'll be on the basic package on channel 219. You may need the sportspack to get FS2 though...not sure.

    Also saw Regis with John Oliver. Seems ironic to have him doing a sports show and Strahan doing Live.

    Here is the Des Moines area channel guide for Mediacom.

    Channel Lineup - Mediacom

    Cyclones.tv HD will be 798

    I might be overlooking it, but I don't see FS1 anywhere.
