As Speed's move to Fox Sports 1 looms, so do serious carriage problems
It's a NASCAR article, the title caught my eye though, it's relevant to people looking to actually watch Fox Sports One on their tv package. Directv, Time Warner and Dish Network have no deal with Fox Sports a week out.
I've been seeing stories like this for a over a month in other sports stories like college football and soccer, but this is getting close again with the cable stuff.
I was looking at the cable package I have now and I have speed but not fuel. The way it sound form stuff later in the article, the package that will get FS1 is gonna be the next option up.
They need to figure it out though, it's supposed to be going down at mi casa that night for the fights. I'd rather crisp cable HD, and a good creek would probably be harder to come by if there were 50 million less options to potentially to one.
