    I'm pretty sure FX is in a lot more homes than Speed or Fuel. Anyone feel like Googling that for me? Doesn't sound good for PAC-12 exposure.

    Speed Channel (future 'Fox Sports 1') is on Dish Ch150 in Americas Top 200

    Fuel TV (the future 'Fox Sports 2') is on Dish Ch398 as part of the multisport package (same package that contains MLB network, PAC-12, and NFL network) also comes in Americas TOP 250.

    Sucks. The FX college football broadcasts last season were of a much better quality than the regional Fox Sports ones I was used to. Would have been even better in my memories if CU was competitive in those games.

    I have to think that a big part of Fox's plan is to get these networks carried in a lot more places than they were as Fuel and Speed...

    It has to be. I would assume that the fairly universal coverage of FX was a big part of the negotiations between P12 and Fox. You would hope the P12 has some type of protection from Fox choosing to run the games on lesser networks.
