re: Thoughts Of FoxSports1 after almost a year


Well, most of their original content has been cancelled including Fox Football Daily, Fox Soccer Daily, Crowd Goes Wild, and their saturday morning college "gameday" style show. They tried to hard to start out, and had way too high expectations. Now aside from Fox Sports Live, its basically the racing and UFC channel.. I don't see it growing much.

When Jay and Dan are hosting, Fox Sports Live blows Sportscenter out of the water. When FS1 has anything on other than Jay and Dan hosting Fox Sports Live, FS1 is a crappy version of ESPN. Overall I'm a little disappointed in the channel, but it is where I turn to at night/in the morning for my sports highlights.

Can go without any NASCAR or MLB, but I tune in from time to time.

I loved their college basketball coverage this season. They cover a lot of mid major action which I enjoy watching.

I don't watch them for a daily show like I do ESPN. Sometimes I forget the channel even exists.

They do actually do a great job of covering college sports, just a lot of times their coverage is outside the power 5, which obviously doesn't sell ratings.

As a fan of a mid major, I enjoy the channel, but I can easily see why others don't.

Fox Sports1 was great for following McDermott this past basketball season.

This board was flat-out pumped for the channel. Then everyone stopped caring.



I like the NBC sports channel a lot more.

Fox Sports Live is my go to highlight show, as it actually shows highlights. I also like how openly pro-gambling they are. ESPN would never do the things FS1 does regarding the lines and such. Jay Onrait and Dan O'Toole are better than anything ESPN has on SportsCenter, and their show isn't littered with product placement. It's a fun show that gives me sports news. Very reminiscent of 90s SportsCenter.

Everything else? That's the problem. I could give a shite about UFC and car racing, so I never watch their live events. Their other live sports are all pretty damn second rate. NBCSN has much better live programming (EPL, NHL, and cycling). If I could move FoxSportsLive to NBCSN for my highlight needs, I'd have a perfect network for my taste.
