Fox Sports 1

So they just turned Nascrap Speed into Fox Sports 1. I watched the UFC last night & then their version of Sportscenter.

Horrible. 2 anchors trying to be goofy, shouting, trying to be like Berman and making nicknames. Then ex jocks sitting on a couch, being monitored by some blonde bim. Nothing like ex basketball & tennis players trying speak on football issues.

2 words Hot Mess & in this version won't last.

I wish Eastern Sports Promotional Network would get some real competition. I have some hope for Fox in the long run, but it is slim. Their sports radio network always sucked big time- a bunch of gravely voiced idiots nick named "the Brick." I could only stand brief forays to their channel as a diversion from the latest promotions on the other network.

I think CBS and NBC are trying to up their Sports network game. I hope they do.

With typical FOX attention to detail, they forgot to give Comcast their program listings. I know they have a Champions League match on Wednesday, but all my program listing shows is TBA from here to eternity.

I'm on Comcast, a somewhat large cable outfit. No program listings for the channel. None. Normally, that happens when a channel either fails to give its schedule to a carrier, or it does so late.

Given the crappy level of work of everything associated with FOX sports on cable, I'm pretty sure they screwed this one up.

After all, what does it matter? It's only a hugely hyped launch of a new product, that's all.

This sorts it out a little.

So, in a nut shell:

Speed is now Fox Sports 1 and Fuel is now Fox Sports 2

Yes, that's right. My system doesn't carry Fuel. Still no listings for FS 1. I imagine they'll fix it when everyone gets back in the office Monday.
