FOX SPORTS SOUTH Channel Information

You can learn more here. We are unsure why the FOX RSN group, currently owned by Disney and in the process of being sold to Sinclair, decided to involve customers in the contract negotiation process at a point when there is still time for the two parties to reach a mutually beneficial deal.

As part of the deal to get Department of Justice approval for the Disney-Fox merger, there was a requirement that the Fox regional sports networks would be sold off.

  • Cox and Fox Sports today announced a new multi-year agreement for the cable operator to carry 15 different Fox regional sports channels, avoiding any blackout.
  • The stations as of this morning are still on the air for Dish and Sling subscribers so negotiations appear to have been extended.
  • Additionally, no agreement appears to be on the horizon.
  • At its launch, the channel held the regional cable television rights to the Atlanta Braves , Atlanta Hawks and Charlotte Hornets. Shortly after Turner completed its merger with Time Warner , SportSouth was purchased by News Corporation 's Fox Cable Networks in the winter of ; the channel was integrated into the recently formed Fox Sports Net group of regional sports networks, and was officially rebranded as Fox Sports South in the spring of later amending the name to "Fox Sports Net South" in , as part of a collective brand modification of the FSN networks under the "Fox Sports Net" banner.

When Disney closes on the sale of most of 21st Century Fox, they need to sell off the regional sports networks currently running under the Fox Sports name. This deal is not final yet likely making these talks more difficult.
