Fox’s new national sports network, FOX Sports 1, will debut on Saturday, August 17th, with every major distributor on board, making this the biggest sports cable network launch in history, and one of the largest network launches ever.  The announcement was made by Mike Hopkins, President, Distribution, Fox Networks.

“We are thrilled that virtually all pay-television customers across America will have access to FOX Sports 1,” said Mr. Hopkins.  “This network launch is a major milestone for Fox and will alter the sports television landscape.  We are grateful to our distribution partners for making this all possible.”

At the outset, FOX Sports 1 boasts nearly 5,000 hours of live event, news and original programming annually.  A robust schedule of live events forms the backbone of FOX Sports 1’s programming from Day 1, with college basketball, college football, NASCAR, soccer, boxing and UFC all on tap between launch and year’s end.  In fact, the schedule on August 17th features live events morning, noon and night including a NASCAR Camping World Truck Series race from Michigan and UFC FIGHT NIGHT: SHOGUN VS.
