Hopefully all of the NASCAR content I currently enjoy on Speed is covered by Fox One.


As I mentioned earlier in the thread, FUEL is expected to carry most of the motorsports coverage.

Speed probably has better penetration in homes. Fuel is more than likely on higher tier packages and isn't in as many homes as a result.
If it ain't in HD, it ain't worth watching!

Speed traces back to Speedvision, so it has analog/expanded basic coverage in many areas, while many cable systems only offer Fuel in a digital package or a sports pack.

Fuel is only in around 35 million homes. Speed is in around 80 million. That's why.

Fox could do something stupid, like when Discovery Health changed to OWN and tried to cancel all of their existing carriage contracts and get new contracts to carry the new channel - but having 80 million subscribers is worth something.

Hopefully the stuff moved to Fuel will be replays and non-event auto related shows such as Car Warriors, Pinks, Pass Time, Truck U, Unique Whips and other "reality" shows that are not sports. Keep NASCAR races, practices and qualifying on "Fox Sports 1" as much as possible.

Trucks on dirt at Eldora. That belongs on the main channel (if not on Fox broadcast).

However, it was also noted that some of Speed's carriage agreements with cable companies require it to maintain a motorsports-oriented format—which could require it to re-negotiate carriage in some areas.

I think they might actually be able to put something on that is equal to ESPN. NBC Sports Network and CBS Sports Network, so far, aren't doing it. I think NBC/CBS' main problem is simply the lack of rights. I am an IndyCar fan, but that isn't enough to draw the numbers to NBC and CBS basically only has lower tier NCAA conferences. Fox actually has the rights to stuff people want to watch.

Something I don't understand is how un-integrated all of these companies seem to be. You'd think that NBC News/msnbc/NBC Sports/NBC Sports Network/NBC Broadcast would be one solid integrated block, same with Fox's properties. I think the one to get all of their stuff running in sync will be the one to knock off ESPN. But, imagine if ABC bought CNN. There are all of these pieces of an actual media empire that have been collected but no one is operating them to their full potential.

Baseball has an agreement with Fox. They need a place to broadcast their games.

Many people are expecting a new FOX all-sports channel coming soon, and Randy Freer, FSNG co-president, said to stay tuned regarding how it will parse out its baseball programming.

FWIW, in the Ohio area, there has been some whisper about FSN Ohio buying SportsTime Ohio (Cleveland Indians, MAC sports, Ohio High School playoffs).

One reason is TWC has apparently started a Sports Channel in the Dayton/Cinci area, and FSN doesn`t want TWC Sports getting a big chunk of NE Ohio.

FSN Ohio was operated by Charles Dolan (father of James & Larry) when the Indians were on FSN Ohio until SportsTime Ohio started in 2006

That would make FSN Ohio a big player again, especially in N Ohio, Indians territory.

FSN Ohio would then be run like FSN Florida/Sun Network between regions..

The word is the Indians owner Larry Dolan (not James, who runs MSG, NY Rangers, etc.) would still have an interset in the new venture

STO is a full time HD network, unlike FSN Ohio.

FSNOhio is run by FOX and Cablevision ..STO is run by Indians. Indians ownership had no part of FSNOhio at any time.

Hearing FUEL will replace SPEED when the conversion takes place


Where did you hear that? I follow all things NASCAR very close and this is the first I've heard of that. And Fuel's distribution is too low to justify the high cost of NASCAR.

Charles Dolan did run Cablevision, FSNOhio,
Larry Dolan owns the Indians with STO ownership as a seperate entity.
So when he sells the Tribe, he`ll still have broadcasting rights.
James Dolan now runs Cablevision AMC networks, MSG, NY Rangers, etc.

We simply have too many Dolan`s here.
