I imagine they will...just think of all the customers they could lose if they didn't. Well, that's only if you don't live in a place like Albuquerque where there is only one (really lousy) choice for cable TV. (Yes, I really, really hate Comcast but at least they show the small number of things I want to watch.) Anyway, I bet they'll carry it.

There was much rejoicing!

ESPN people are the one who puts the races on ABC...it's like ABC's sports department is ESPN. I did not know about this Fox 1 thing...my supplier better keep up with any changes!

Sounds like Fox is trying to keep up with ESPN

I guess I'll probably be happy as long as they show the races on some channel or other because I've got digital cable with about a gajillion channels that I never even watch. (I didn't want digital cable but it's what Comcast set me up with when my ex and I moved to this apartment complex. I've got a gajillion TV channels and I probably only watch 15 or 20 of them.)



There was much rejoicing!

Yeh, I have cable, too, so I have either.

The article says that Fox has NASCAR contracts running into 2022. It's just the question of which channel they will show it on.

They want to be like ABC, who SHOULD be showing the races on ABC, but farms them over to ESPN most of the time.

The contracts are already in place for this year and maybe for next year, too. But who knows what they'll do for the years after? I would assume that both Fox and NASCAR would be smart enough to realize that using Fox Sports 1 to broadcast the races would be a bad idea since not everyone has cable that carries that channel, but who knows? NASCAR has made some stupid decisions in the past and it could happen again. (Luckily I've got cable that carries Speed/FS 1.)

There was much rejoicing!

I don't know if anyone has heard this, but Speed Channel will become Fox Sports 1 on August 17th.

"Its owner, Fox Networks, announced this week that the channel – which reaches nearly 90 million households by satellite and cable, putting it in the big leagues of specialty networks – will be rebranded on Aug. 17 as Fox Sports 1, a broad sports network that will pick up some of Speed’s motorsports programming.

Just wondering if the NASCAR races will only be on there, or stlll on FOX? How many households can get FOX, but not Speed? Depending, even less visibility for NASCAR!
