    A previous onscreen message announced FS1 would be on 619 which on my grid is Fox Soccer. FS2 is on 618. The DirecTV website says FS1 should be on 607 but the grid says "not available". Color me confused.

    FWIW - From what I've seen so far, FS1 is pretty bad. Their version of SportsCenter is almost unwatchable.

    What else does it say on 607? Only on the banner, in the info, in the guide, and as a popup on 607 - FS1 is on channel 219!!!!

    Although still very early...I totally agree with you.
    The 2 male hosts are goofy and the round table discussion is very weak! How about more highlights and much less of the talkingheads chit-chat that most people don't care about!

    A quick question if and when the Fox Sports Go app launches will it include the regional Fox Sports Nets or are they just focusing on FS1 and FS2?

    Per reports everything, including broadcast.

    "Fox Sports Go will be “one of the most complex TV Everywhere apps ever created,” Bellitti added. “We need to pull in more than 230 broadcast, regional and cable feeds for authentication from across all our channels.”"

    The FS people I talked to talked about lots of regional stuff. Even down to high school. But probably not at launch.

    They own scout.com, so the resources are there.

    They missed the first 7 laps of the race along with the final restart due to being in commercial break during last night's race. Hopefully they get their s**t together fairly soon.

    I'm convinced that FOX Sports 1 is geared to the 21 and younger crowd. Or maybe it's just those awful "anchors" on FOX Sports Live - the sports version of the "Wayne's World" fake cable TV show - without the humor.

    In other words, FOX Sports 1 is unwatchable if you're > 40.

    I don't think anyone 21 and younger even knows who Regis is.

    Regis - Oh yeah. That must be the most surreal show I've ever seen. It's like watching a slow-motion implosion.

    The British chick is hot and is the only reason to tune in,as that show feels boring,sluggish and amateurish.

    It should be called "The Crowd goes to Sleep"

    I had such high hopes. Anything to watch that isn't ESPN. So far, not so much.
