Re: Fox Sports 1...Serious Threat to ESPN?

They'll be airing their Sportscenter-esque show 'Fox Sports Live' directly against Sportscenter, which is ballsy and cool. The thing that gives FS1 an immediate advantage is moving The Ultimate Fighter to FS1. Wonder if they'll move some of their UFC fights to FS1, as well.

The first night on the air, they are holding a UFC card...main event will be Mauricio Rua vs. Chael Sonnen.

I hope they can deliver. ESPN is getting played out especially with their knack for saying stupid shit for the sake of saying it. Looking at you Skip Bayless.

ESPN is fucking TERRIBLE right now. This is the best thing that could have happened.

Well, that's one reason to watch Fox Sports 1 over ESPN.

Re: Fox Sports 1...Serious Threat to ESPN?

If they really want to hurt ESPN, Fox needs to get the NBA rights in 2016. Everything else is locked up for years. FS1 is already going to have MLB playoff games next year if they can the NBA, that would be enormous and damaging to ESPN.

Tha NBA is going to get a TON of money in their new TV rights deal. from either ABC,FOX or NBC because their respective sports networks would benefit huge from all those regular season and playoff games.

Right now I dont think baseball, Pac 12 football and UFC (still a niche IMO) is quite enough for FOX to take down ESPN.

Definitely not. FS1 has to produce better quality programs and dump a ton of money into Fox Sports Live. I hear they've got a deal with NASCAR or some shit too. That's not a big enough draw, brotherjack.

My bet is Disney ponies up and ESPN/ABC retain NBA when that contract is up.

Re: Fox Sports 1...Serious Threat to ESPN?

I hope it's not biased with it's coverage like ESPN can be. I mean i barely hear anything about the GIANTS, even though the team is the defending champs. Yes I know thye suck right now, but still. I prefir the sport specific channels and look to espn for a general veiw, plus i like some of their people for their shows.

What nfl stuff are they gonna have?

Fox Sports 1 should focus on highlights like the old school SportsCenter to compete with ESPN

I prefer NBC Sports to get the NBA. They already got NHL, Nascar, MLS, Premier League, and other smaller sports like Cycling and Triple Crown.
