Fox Announces New Multi-Sport Network

Fox Sports Media Group announced a new multi-sport network called Fox Sports 1, which will debut on August 17th. The network will feature college basketball and football, NASCAR, and Ultimate Fighting Championship programming.

FS1 will feature NASCAR races in 2015 and all Speedweek events leading up to the Daytona 500 in 2014 and 2017 – 2022.

Fox also expects to use a split screen during commercials to keep viewers engaged.

The Daytona 500 will remain on network television. But, beyond that, there has been no indication which of the 13 2015 Sprint Cup races Fox will move from network TV to cable.

SPEED programming will move to FS1.
