Will beging August 17th. Anyone going to check it out?

It's supposed to be taking to channel location of "SPEED", so if you have the SPEED Channel you should get the new Fox Sports 1.

Is this just like NBC sports?

Will Fox's NFL coverage fall under the "fox sports 1" umbrella even if its on basic cable fox?
(As well as its college football coverage)

From my understanding this is Fox's shot at Sports Center/ESPNEWS. I'm hoping it's more of a mix on the Sports Center side of things though.

The talk is that when ESPN is wanting to 100% pump Tim Tebow, Aron Hernandez, and other crappy non-sports stories over and over and over ... FOX will be there reporting what actually happens in sports.

As for the Soccor comment ... they're also starting another stations FOX Soccor, so Fox 1 won't be soccor heavy if that's what you're worried about.

Also, Fox Soccer will be replaced by FXX, which is FX's new split off comedy channel.

If this is what they're actually doing, I'll give them a chance. I'm all for any real competition against ESPN.

I've read a good number of sports articles lately that have made comments about things being blown up in the media "and ESPN", so Fox is really trying to push the "are you tired of the same ol' crap?"

I'll give it a shot.
I pretty much have given up on ESPN outside of watching games..I don't even watch Sportscenter anymore.

Gave NBC Sports a shot, but it just didn't click.
Maybe this will give some competition.
Sounds like they are really looking at promoting UFC, NASCAR, Soccer, Big 12 and Pac 12 football, the NFL and MLB.

ANd I would raise my hand and say YES...
Let me try your crap Fox Sports1.

Maybe they will be a little more knowledgable locally with their Fox Sports South and such entities...something ESPN is clearly lost on.

I think in the end it will change into what ESPN is and they will cater to what they show.(and what gives them ratings/dollars)
It's kind of like how ESPN doesn't show hockey highlights (because they don't have rights to their games)

Espn is hated on by most the college football world for being SEC biased.

I could see this new Fox heavy on the conferences they show (PAC12 and Big 12)

I think so....everybody trying to take ESPN's market share.
However, ESPN will continue to dominate because of all the the contracts it has with so many groups.

I ask that because the Super Bowl is showed every 3 years on fox (rotates between fox,CBS and NBC)

Will they be using the "Fox Sports 1" brand for that game (even though its showed on basic Fox)
If so that's a huge plus (having the most watched Sporting event in the US)
