    They go live on August 17th with some cool events including a stacked UFC card. Oh, but they don't have a deal in place to be carried on Dish Network. Or DirecTV. Or Time Warner Cable. Way to think ahead. :dontknow:

    I get it on my cable subscription :yes: I hope they get signed to more providers. I can't fucking stand ESPN with all their favoritism towards certain athletes and teams.

    Fox Sports 1 should just say:" Fuck you" to the cable companies and stream on the net.
    AppleTV/Google Chromcast is the feature of TV.

    The cable companies reduces to pay right fees to Fox sports 1. We are talking about less then 20 cent per subscriber.
    The cable companies whats to continue to charge 100dollar+ per month and pay shit for content.

    Fox and all companies should just go directly to consumers. Most people would pay 1 dollar/month (5 times the amount they get from the cable companies) for a commercial financed Fox Sports 1. Many would even pay 3.99 for an indemand/commercial free version.

    The cable companies are the last bastion of the "old economy".

    They play old record companies that wants to take all the profit and don't pay anyone. I just want them to die and let me as a customer buy the programs I want to to see. (and UFC are also insane. 55 dollar for a PPV? Also "old economy")

    Typical Fox. They take over the channel dedicated to cars and racing then cancel the most intelligent motorsports program on tv.

    Preach it! I'm preaching this same message wherever and whenever I can. It's time to destroy media distribution's "old guard" of useless middlemen.

    I thought Speed TV, which is already owned by FOX is simply turning into FOX Sports 1? So wouldn't anyone who currently has Speed from their service provider ought to get FS1?

    And you think Fox is different? Joe Buck has his head so far up Justin Verlanders ass he can taste what the pitcher had for lunch. And then when football season rolls around you would think it was still 1984 the way the lather up anything Dallas Cowboys oriented. The NASCAR announcers schill so much for Danica Patrick and Dale Earnhart JR you would think that they would have won 5 championships in a row instead of 2 races between them in the last 7 years.

    Yup. The UFC actually put together a decent card to capitalize on the big launch and millions of people won't be able to see it, me included.

    I have DirecTV and went through the whole channel lineup. Fox Sports 1 is nowhere to be found.

    no one likes Olbermann- he's a fucking dick on several levels. The ESPN on-air guys arent too bad in general, its the metrosexuals on the ESPN web site, and the censoring of the comment boards that suck most.
