I'll get 'FOX Sports 1'
No 'FOX Sports 2'
I really hope they are the "anti-Espn". Espn has turned into the tmz of sports. It's unwatchable. So many jump the shark moments on Espn the past decade to name.
I haven't watched a sportcenter in years.
I'm looking forward this channel as well, dish is gonna carry it. Their website is pretty good too.
I used to watch sportscenter everyday... NOW never ever!
Find Fox Sports 1 on your cable or satellite system.
Channel 99 on Cablevision
Starting August 17, tune in to FOX Sports 1 on Optimum channel 69 / 769 (hd)! And watch FOX Sports 2 on channel 403!
The ESPN shows are horrible these days - I just saw that angry black sportswriter Jason Whitlock, who's been busting ESPN's balls over the past few years, pulled a Stern and evolved and is now going back to work for them.
they are all Whures.
Anyone that wants to continue to commentate on sports for a living will have to bob on the pole of the 4 letter eventually.
My wife works for ESPN as a show cost accounting manager. I asked her if there's any buzz or if there's any worry about the new competition and she said not really. I don't think they're losing sleep over the all the NASCAR & MMA you can handle sports channel.
This is what you have to look forward to. Good luck.
For me it's the fact that ESPN still uses Bill Rhoden for shows like the sports reporters..guy wrote a book literally making the case that modern athletes are nothing more than millionaire slaves
Mike Lupica mixing politics with sports chased me away.
Here the channel was FSN (Fox Sports), now is 'ROOT Sports' and will become 'Fox Sports 1'. The thing was/is owned by Direct TV Networks the whole time.
I'd also like an ESPN alternative, only thing I watch there are live games. I have NFL Network and MLB Network for news and commentary.
fox will bring more tits and ass to the broadcast
Fox got so fucked in this deal.
They had asked about 86 cent per subscriber.
They got about 18 cent per subscriber.
That is 50 million per month they lost.
Only reason they accepted this shitty deal was because of UFC and that Fox could not fuck their partner in the ass.
Had Fox waited 1-2 week to collage football. Then the cable companies would have got a ton of angry phone calls from people.
I still don't understand why Fox (and every other channel) just bypass the cable companies ans sell the channel directly to customers. Even ESPN gets under a dollar per subscriber. I gladly pay 2 dollars for the channels I want just to dump the greedy cable companies.
Add some indemand functionality, I would pay 3 dollars. Add free 5 dollars.
Why should the cable companies take 50% of the revenue for nothing? Just look at PPVs. The cable companies keep over 55% of the revenue! Fuck em!
This is what we have government for and Raptors.
Just send a couple of Raptors and bomb the CEOs of cable companies and they would accept reasonable margins >10%. Socialism is sometime good. (well. Ifs its socialism, then Obama should just nationalise the cable companies and give the channels for free. I guess the retarded majority would cheer for that)
Huh? ESPN gets closer to $5 per household, not $1.
Oh no! Not that shithead, I still remember when he started at KTLA YEARS AGO! They eventually fired this blowhard along with every other L.A. news station as he bounced from station to station.
