FS 1 is already available in HD. FS 2 is not carried in HD on DISH.


BTW: I see logos today. Yesterday the logos were blank, today they are correct.

Oh I see, thanks. Also, any possibilities FS1 drops to the AT120 or AT120+? Don't see how they can compete with ESPN without doing so.

FS1/2 getting to lower tiers will be entirely dependent on how they do in the ratings by the time their contract comes up for renewal.  You can be sure FS1/2 wanted to be in a lower tier but nobody (Dish, DirecTV, Time Warner in particular) was willing to sign them up... so they essentially agreed to take the current deals in place for Speed and Fuel and negotiate again later.

So is there any word on availability of Speed content on other channels? I checked the guide and didn't see much speed content on FS1 or FS2. I am specifically referring to non-nascar automotive content such as Pinks, Pass-Time, Top Gear, etc...

While I don't know for sure...  since FOX is replacing Speed and Fuel with FS1 and FS2... I have to assume that they will keep their higher rated/popular programming from Speed/Fuel BUT that there will likely be some casualties to make room for the other sport coverage on the new channels.

I thought some of that stuff was moving to the other reality/sports channels. (I can't remember which, but I'm thinking Spike, TruTV or something along that line.)

Any idea when "later" might be? I have no idea when their contracts end.

I actually don't know.  Since I wasn't a follower of Speed/Fuel before I had no reason to be interested... but now I wish I did know, because I will have more interest in FS1/2 than I did in the channels they replaced.  My gut says no shorter than 6 months, but maybe no longer than a year... but that's just a guess.

This is a random question, but which service costs more, the AT250 or AT120+ with Multi Sports Pack? Not sure which to get with my contract running down.

Without looking, I have to think AT250 costs more... but of course it doesn't have all the RSNs that you'd get with multisport.

$4 less for AT120+ w/ Multi-Sport.  And Stewart is right, it's a different mix of channels.

I have to say that FS1 was NOT a good replacement for Speed. Seems to be mostly FOX sports live, some NASCAR and a bunch of football and UFC stuff. I think there was already enough football on other channels, we didn't need another football channel. It was nice having automotive programming all in one place.

Many are qualifying for the 1/2 off Sports Pack deal which would make 120+ about $9.50 less. But as noted you are talking about two very different packages.

Actually part if the point is they are pulling a lot of football and latter baseball and so on to this one channel and clearing up the others.

Subscribing to AT250 (or AT120+) to get Fuel (FS2).

The "filler" motorsports content is about the only thing that cannot be found.

It should also be mostly spread among the two new fs channels.  Just less repeats. As far as the auxilary stuff, I dont know, but Ill bet it ends up on other channels like fxx.
