Hadn't heard that about Speed, although the only thing I ever watched on it is Formula 1 which is going to NBCSN starting with the new season in March. I am wondering how Fox is going to fill Fox Sports 1/2 with content on a national basis unless they make some kind of deal to show a lot of out of market games from their RSNs like Comcast has been doing the last couple of years.
Does Fox still have rights to the Champions League next year?
NASCAR has a new deal with FOX that will be through 2022.
Fox will have the Champions and Europa League rights through May 2015. They will still have English FA Cup matches, Glasgow Celtic, and the Dutch League starting next season.
I wouldn't be surprised if the content from FS+ would morph into the FS-1/2 framework. Add the Super Rugby that is on D*, UFC programming, Fox's new MLB deal on Saturdays, the action sports featured on Fuel and consolidate the programming that is often shown on all of their RSNs, Fox may be in for a good run as a cable network.
Fox needs to bring back the Best Damn Sports Show though.
